When Nikki Gil transferred from Star Magic to ALV Talent Circuit, she knew that there’d be a lot of changes—both in her showbiz career and in her personal life.
For starters, Nikki now plans to be more health-conscious. At a media junket prepared for her recently, a reporter noticed that she had lost weight.
The singer-actress said that despite her erratic schedule, she tries to squeeze in some physical activities, to maintain her figure.
“I’ve never really been physically active or healthy, so I’m starting now. I go to the gym, I do yoga,” she said.
Does this also mean she’s ready to pose for the cover of a men’s mag?
“Hindi naman. First of all, sino ang bibili no’n? Hindi ko 'ata market ‘yon,” Nikki said with a laugh.
Then, she explained, “Mayroon naman tayong ibang aktres na kayang gawin ’yon. As for me, hindi ko yata specialty ‘yon. So, doon na lang ako kung saan ako kumportable.”
Nikki also thinks that her new talent manager will help her focus more on what she really loves doing—singing.
“Well, pumasok naman ako sa industriya as a singer, so 'yon po ang talagang pinaka-enjoy akong gawin. And hindi po ako masyadong nabibigyan ng pagkakataong makapag-perform as a solo artist so 'yon po sana ang direksyon na gusto kong i-take.”
Last June, Nikki showed off her skill, both as a singer and as an actress, in the local adaptation of Legally Blonde: The Musical. She also released her third music album last April titled Somebody to Love.
