We got to chat with John Lloyd about being the first male to ever top the YES! 100 list, his thoughts on beauty, and who tops his personal most beautiful ranking. Read our Q&A with John Lloyd below, then launch the gallery to see photos of him at the presscon.
How does it feel to be the first male to top the YES! Magazine 100 Most Beautiful Stars list?
John Lloyd Cruz: "Actually, hindi ako makapaniwala. Tinatanong ko sila noon, 'Sigurado ba kayo, wala na ba kayong ibang mapilili?' Well, totoo talaga, I find it hard to believe na ako 'yung nasa top ng 100 and ako 'yung nakakuha ng number one spot.
Hindi ko talaga maintindihan kung bakit, pero gusto lang sabihin na there were no sexual favors na in-entertain, aside from that one time... (Laughs.)
It's a very intriguing and interesting recognition, but I'm hoping na there's more to this handsome face and godly body kaya n'yo ako pinili."
Does it make you feel awkward at all?
JLC: "Awkward kasi para mapasama sa listahan ng ganitong naggagandahang mga nilalang, at ikaw pa ang cover ng magazine. It's overwhelming, definitely. It's awkward to be here. But nevertheless, I'm very thankful."
What's your definition of beauty?
JLC: "There isn't one way of defining or finding or seeing beauty. Iba-iba tayo ng pagtingin sa kung ano 'yung beautiful to you, what's beautiful to other people. Well, ako kasi I like women with big hair magandang legs, 'yung medyo may pagkamisteryosa 'yung mata, sexy back... The most intriguing form of beauty would be pain and suffering."
Do you feel that you're beautiful?
JLC: '"Yun ang sabi ng daddy ko: 'wag mo masyadong ramdamin kasi 'pag pumasok sa isip mo 'yan baka maniwala ka. Ako, cute lang ako. 'Yung katawan ni Piolo [Pascual] magandang tingnan lang 'yun, 'yung katawan ko masarap yakapin."
Would you consider yourself vain?
JLC: "Not really vain, pero part ng job to be presentable. Parang you owe it to the public. Pero I'm more vain 'pag kailangan kong humarap sa tao kasi feeling ko I owe it to my audience."
Do you have a beauty regimen?
JLC: "'Pag sinisipag ako talagang 'di ko nakakalimutan. Well, I take care of my skin physically."
Who are the top three people on your "Most Beautiful" list?
JLC: "Hirap ng tanong... Siguro sa lalaki...para sa akin, to define 'yung gwapong Pinoy siguro si Jericho Rosales--Pinoy look na talagang gwapo. Sa babae naman, si Mylene Dizon and pangatlo si Isabelle Daza."
