Dominic Roque on joining sexy fashion show: ‘Nahihiya pa ako konti’


091214-dom_main.jpgAs part of this year's newly launched “Boys of Bench” who will take part in the much-anticipated The Naked Truth denim and underwear fashion show on September 19, Dominic Roque admitted he is feeling the pressure of showing off his body on the catwalk along with international models and the other celebrity endorsers.

“This is my first Bench show. May pressure kasi parang nahihiya pa ako konti siguro. Pero I think I'll be more confident na during the event mismo. Nakaka-pressure sila kasi yung iba sobrang ganda ng katawan so yun yung kailangan mo habulin o lagpasan mo. Kaya yun yung motivation na kailangan maganda yung maipakita mo sa mga tao, na ma-appreciate nila yung pinaghirapan mo kasi sa totoo lang naman hindi naman biro yung pag-wo-workout eh. Yan yung self-discipline sa pagpapaganda ng katawan at saka sa pagkain. Sobrang laking hirap at disiplina ang kailangan para sa pagpapaganda,” he told Push.com.ph

The 24-year-old Moon of Desire actor said he worked hard for the sexier physique he has now. “At first I was shy kasi dati mataba ako and then naging fit tapos tinodo ko lang na mag-workout. Sabi ko, 'siguro kakayanin ko ito.' tapos yun, nakita ko naman na may mga improvements ako sa katawan so naging maganda,” he recalled.

To prepare for the fashion show, Dominic said he just continued his healthy diet without any drastic measures that some models usually resort to. “Wala, puro lang ako kain. Hindi joke lang (laughs). Super pinaghandaan ko ito kasi nung una pa lang sa Moon of Desire kailangan kami laging fit, laging workout so hindi namin pinapabayaan na mag-gain ng malaki or mawala yung ganda ng katawan. And then at least three or four times a week akong nag-wo-workout sa circuit training. And then sa pagkain ko hindi ko dini-deprive ang sarili ko sa food. Kumakain pa rin ako ng kahit ano pero balanced pa rin sa mga healthy food like yung supplements ko ng protein, ganun,” he revealed.

When asked if he would ever be okay with just wearing a thong onstage, Dominic admitted, “Hindi naman siguro. Ano pa rin, sana maganda pa rin tingnan, yung hindi naman masyadong bastos.”

With his afternoon show Moon of Desire having ended its run last August, Dominic said he hopes his fans will enjoy watching him in The Naked Truth. “This is for them. Pinaghirapan ko ito para sa mga fans and sana manuod sila ng show para ma-appreciate nila yung pinaghirapan ko. Kung may bago akong maipapakita, malalaman natin yan sa The Naked Truth so dapat abangan nila na may kakaiba. Lahat naman kami may mga kakaibang gagawin eh. So nag-isip kami ng mga gimik na puwedeng gawin sa show,” he shared.

For his next project, the actor said he is game for anything. “I'm open naman sa lahat ng puwedeng i-offer ng ABS-CBN. Kung ano yung ipapagawa nila I'm willing to do it kasi kung ano yung bago or kung ano yung hindi ko pa nagagawa mas maganda sa akin yun. At least may naiisip na new projects for me,” he added.

When it comes to leading ladies, the Kapamilya actor said he will trust the network to find the best woman for him onscreen. “Actually hindi ko pa alam eh kung sino ba or kanino ba ako i-pi-pair pero marami namang magaganda sa ABS-CBN na puwede maging ka-partner,” he said.
