Admit it—you once had a silly schoolgirl crush on this erstwhile matinee idol. Find out how much Goma has changed since his bachelor days!
richardgomez_main.jpg Back in the late 80s and 90s, tall, dark, and irresistibly handsome Richard Gomez was the most eligible bachelor in the country. When he married the stunning Lucy Torres back in 1998, a million hearts simultaneously broke (including Angelica Panganiban’s).

Now Goma, once the sexiest man alive in this part of the globe, has happily settled into domestic life with his lovely wife and daughter, and he is even hoping to add another little one to the family. He is also eyeing a seat in Congress, a clear indication of how this erstwhile matinee idol’s goals have changed. When we asked him what he misses most about being a bachelor, he replies without hesitation, “Nothing.”

Read on to find out how marriage has changed Goma, what he loves about Lucy, and what part of his body he’s most proud of!
  1. Getting older has mellowed him down, romance-wise.

    “One thing I learned about relationships that I didn’t know when I was single is how to take care of them, how to nurture them. You know, when you're young, you're very aggressive. When you're [older] you can look [at it] the other way around then focus on your partner.”

  2. What he loves most about Lucy is her thoughtfulness.

    “She cares for me a lot. She worries about me and she loves me so much.”

  3. Even though he has been married for 11 years, he believes in keeping the flame of romance alive...

    “You always have to [inject romance into marriage]. Romance is an integral part of being married. It comes in many forms and in many different ways.”

  4. ...And one way they keep that flame burning is by hitting the road.

    “For me and Lucy, it’s a continued honeymoon every time we take a vacation. We treat [every escape] that way.”

  5. He may be an old trout by today’s showbiz standards, but Goma still has a mighty pair of gams that could put any newbie actor to shame!

    “My favorite part of my body is my legs. They're well-developed. They're very powerful, fast, and strong. My legs developed through the years since I was a kid. I love playing [sports] and running. I was very much into sports, so up to this day my legs are very strong.”
