ICYDK, aside from being a beauty pageant titleholder who won the crown during Miss Universe Philippines 2016, Maxine Medina is also an actress and TV personality. In fact, she's set to appear in GMA's Regal Studio Presents: Karinderya Queens on Sunday, November 7. For this episode, she'll star alongside Derrick Monasterio and Miss World Philippines 2019 Second Princess Casie Banks.
Talking about her showbiz career with PEP.ph, Maxine was asked by Cabinet Files if she would ever star in sexy films, and consider taking on ~mature~ roles, similar to her co-beauty queens Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2013 Cindy Miranda and Miss International 2016 Kylie Versoza. The 31-year-old Pinay answered and said she doesn't want to commit to projects that would require her to portray a ~sexy image~.
According to Maxine, "Siguro kinalakihan ko na rin po talaga yung very conservative [family]. Respect na rin po sa dad ko, kasi siyempre, ayoko naman pong mapanood ako ng dad ko sa mga ganoon. For me, hindi talaga ako ready sa ganoon. Sa akin po talaga, no-no po talaga, kasi ang mom and dad ko po, talagang watching over me." She also mentioned that the decision was brought about by her religion as well. "I'm a Catholic din po," she added.
The beauty queen clarified that she has nothing against Cindy and Kylie's decision to be involved with sexy roles. At the end of the day, it's all a matter of pursuing different paths. She shared, "I think, yung ginagawa naman nila is art. It's their world. It's their showbiz world, and they enjoy it naman siguro."
