Cosmo Online Hunk Rocco Nacino: Shoreline Sweetheart

Who knew this smiling stud had a senti side? This week, the Starstruck V cutie shares some romantic deets and tells us what he thinks of sunsets!

One look at April beach boy Rocco Nacino and you know that he is one positive, good-natured guy. Cheerful, easygoing, and never without a smile on his face, Starstruck V’s Second Prince—who now dances his way to stardom in GMA’s Sunday variety show Party Pilipinas—effortlessly lights up the boob tube, as well as any room he enters. And it doesn’t hurt that he’s got a nice set of washboard abs to go with the great personality!

We’d love to just shoot the breeze with Rocco all day, but we know there’s a lot more to him than a sunny disposition and a 24-karat grin. How else could he have bagged a role opposite Jennylyn Mercado and Dennis Trillo in the afternoon drama Gumapang Ka Sa Lusak if he didn’t have an emotional side tucked away somewhere? So we put our prying powers to task and set off to uncover a sea of sentimentality bubbling beneath this registered nurse’s wholesome sheen.

Listen in on our private convo with Rocco as he spills about summer flings and bummer breakups. We know it’s super cliche, but we just had to ask the budding young star what he thinks of sunsets! And don’t be fooled by the photo of a shirted Rocco above—you’ll be seeing him take it off in just seven clicks!


What do you think of summer flings?

No problem with that. It happens.

Would you say people are more open to hooking up while away on summer vacation?

Why not? Malay mo. You might find that person you really want.

Have you ever hooked up with a girl you met on vacation?

May mga nakilala rin ako. Siyempre inalam ko muna kung taga-saan siya and so on. When we got back to Manila, then we hooked up.

What happened?

Nothing. Hindi tumagal.

Why did it end?

Parang you’re in the middle of trial and error e. You’re searching for one girl, then you realize, “Ay, hindi pala siya.”

Have you ever cried over a girl?

Yeah, because we broke up.

Aww. Who broke up with whom?

It was mutual. Kasi that was during Starstruck. Wala talagang oras. Kung may oras man, kulang pa para sa sarili ko. It was really hard, so we decided to maybe pause for a while. Pero the friendship is still there. We still talk.

Have you ever dumped a girl?

Yeah. Things were not working out; maybe it was best that we stay friends.

Are you one of those guys who would want the girl to do the dumping just so they don't feel guilty about it?


I tried that once (laughs). Pero she loved me more for that! But eventually naging mutual decision din to break up.

Are you the type of guy who likes to watch sunsets?

With someone special, that would be really romantic.

But what if you were watching the sunset by yourself?

Ako lang? No. Mag-isa ka lang diyan? Ang boring. Sana may kasama ka 'di ba?

But if you were doing it with a girl, that would be okay.

Yeah, that would be sweet. Tapos may kasamang kiss sa cheek. Para kilig.
