Valerie Concepcion says her newest men's magazine cover is her most daring yet.
Although being a cover girl is nothing new to Valerie Concepcion, she admitted that her current photo for the newly reformatted Playboy
Philippines magazine was her most daring experience in a photo shoot. “So far eto yung pinaka-
daring na ginawa ko
in a men’s magazine na pag-
pose talaga. Kung nakabili kayo ng
men’s magazine na pinag-pose-an ko
before, ito yung pinaka-
daring na makikita nila na ginawa ko.
I’m hoping na magustuhan nila. Ito talaga yung pinaka-daring
of all,” she told Push.com.ph
The 24-year-old host-actress was not fazed by comments comparing her cover with that of KC Concepcion’s for another magazine this month. Valerie said she considers the comparison more of a compliment than anything else. “I already saw her cover but not the inside pages. More than parang magalit
or mainsulto ako kasi kino-
I feel flattered kasi siyempre
KC Concepcion is KC Concepcion. Anak yan ni
Gabby Concepcion at ni
Ms. Sharon Cuneta. Siyempre nakakatuwa naman. Masaya yun kasi napag-uusapan
(laughs),” she explained.
Valerie, who is staring in the upcoming Kapamilya series Eboy
, claimed that she was very confident about posing for the international men’s magazine franchise. “Basta
one thing that I’m very proud of is even if I have a daughter and I am a mom, I still feel like parang hindi ko pinapabayaan yung sarili ko
and yun nga, yung lagi nilang sinasabi na ang
description sa akin
is ‘hot momma’ ‘di ba?
So I guess yun yung isa sa mga masasabi kong
edge ko na
even if I’m already a mom, I’m a hot mom (laughs). Nahihiya ako sa sagot ko
(laughs),” she joked.
The host-actress revealed she did try to look her best for the magazine shoot. “Nung nalaman ko na malapit na yung
shoot, December yun
so from the day na nalaman ko na
I’m going to do the pictorial for Playboy, sabi ko kailangan hindi ako magkakakain masyado
(laughs). Kasi siyempre nagbakasyon ako
so medyo nagkakakain ako.
So kinailangan ko magpapayat, kailangan huwag masyado kumain
so yun yung
preparation na ginawa ko,
” she shared.
The sexy actress said that she almost decided to quite posing for men’s magazines. “Nagkataon na
timing lang talaga na tinawagan ako ng Playboy. Nasa
right timing na parang
I wanted to do something different, parang ganun
or something na magpasabog
by 2012. So it was the right place at the right time. Actually ngayon ayoko na magsalita ng tapos dahil
before this I already told myself tama na,
I wouldn’t pose na
for any men’s magazine, tama na, ganyan. Pero nung sinabi nga ng
manager ko na parang magre-
reformat ang Playboy
and they want me to do the cover sa
first issue nila
. So nag-
,” she revealed to Push.com.ph
Valerie is proud to be Playboy’s
first cover girl for the year. “Kasi
before I said I don’t want to pose na muna eh. Pero nung sinabi sa akin ng
I was like, ‘Wow. Okay, sige.’ Siyempre na-
honor ako na ako ang gusto nila
,” she shared.
Valerie also said that she made sure she got her mom and daughter Fiona’s approval before doing the sexy pictorial. “Actually the staff were very nice kasi sobrang nakipag-
compromise sila sa akin
so parang nag-
meet halfway talaga kami
between what they want and what I wanted to do. Kasi nga pag Playboy sobrang
daring. Ako naman puwedeng paunti-unti muna
about this issue and I’m very thankful a
