After starring in films like Taya, Hugas, Crush Kong Curly, and Death of a Girlfriend, it’s not hard to see why AJ Raval is being heralded as Vivamax’s ultimate maximum crush. This month, the 21-year-old actress’s new series Iskandalo is released for streaming online.

In the ten-part series, she plays the role of celebrity who becomes involved in a sex scandal online. AJ said she has long embraced her sexy image.

“Masaya ako. Hindi lahat pantasya ng bayan. Siyempre natutuwa ako na na-a-appreciate nila kami. That means na nagagawa namin ng maayos yung mga trabaho namin. Thank you at na-a-appreciate niyo kami,” she shared during the Iskandalo mediacon.

When she was just starting out doing sexy roles, AJ recalled how awkward it was for her to do some of the intimate scenes. 

“Unang experience ko na nag-sex sa [Paglaki Ko, Gusto Ko Maging] Pornstar. Umiyak ako after nung eksena. Wala namang eksena dun na may kasamang lalake. Pero may eksena dun na mag-mo-moan kami ng malakas dahil tinuturuan ako ng mga sexy stars na mag-moan. So pinag-mo-moan nila ako dun. Hindi ko siya magawa so naiyak na lang ako. And sa Death of a Girlfriend, after ng love scene namin ni Diego (Loyzaga), baby baby pa kasi ako nun eh, after ng love scene iyak ako ng iyak tapos hinug ako ni direk at saka nila Diego. Kinomfort naman nila ako. Siguro dahil hindi pa ako masyado ready at that time. Bini-build up ko pa lang yung sarili ko sa mga ganung eksena. Naiyak lang ako nung mga panahon na yun pero ngayon go na. Kayang kaya na,” she shared.

AJ said she is aware that some people think all her projects are about sex, but she said Iskandalo is more than just its sexy scenes.

“Nasa tao kasi yan kung paano nila iti-take yung series, kung ano yung gusto nilang makita. Maganda yung story ng Iskandalo. Sobrang ganda. Hindi basta basta yung plot scenes. Maganda ito at napakatalino ng writer ng Iskandalo kaya dapat niyong abangan. Ang ganda ng story,” she said.

As she continues to do back-to-back projects on Vivamax, AJ said she is focused on being known as a better actress this year.

“Every time na may pinupuna sa aking mali, madami akong bashers, ayaw nilang magpa-sexy ako. Every time na nag-ko-comment sila ng hindi magaganda, parang mas lalo kong gustong i-push yung ginagawa ko. Kunwari nagpapa-sexy ako ngayon at inaaway ako ng mga tao, parang mas lalo kong gustong magpa-sexy. So every time na may ginagawa ako, andiyan yung mga bashers, andiyan din yung mga nakaka-appreciate, parang mas lalo kong gustong galingan at magpa-sexy,” she added.
