Kapuso star is FHM Philippines ‘Sexiest Woman’ for 2013
“I’m back!” Marian Rivera cheerfully declared as FHM Philippines named her the “Sexiest Woman in the World” for the year. This is the second time the 28-year-old TV and movie star was hailed as such by the men’s magazine’s fans, garnering 890,490 votes out of a staggering 16 million votes cast on line during a 65-day polling period.
“Wala akong inaasahan,” she modestly related in her usual down-to-earth nature. “Nag-cover lang ako kasi nagkasundo kami ng FHM sa gusto ko,” she said of her sold out January 2013 issue.
“Hindi mo naman masasabi kung No. 1 ka at hindi maganda sa babae ang umaasa. Mas maganda pag binigay sa iyo ng kusa, at ang importante ang boto ng mga tao sa iyo,” she added gratefully.
Marian and the rest of the “100 Sexiest Women in the World” winners are featured in this month’s issue of the magazine.
The GMA Network star graced the announcement on June 28 along with fellow hotties Meg Imperial who starred in the film, Menor de Edad; actress-turned-singer Roxee B., and cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao.
Marian’s fellow GMA Network talent Sam Pinto came second with 778,681 votes in; while ABS-CBN star Angel Locsin placed third.
When asked how she maintains to-die-for figure, Marian counted off boxing, Zumba and the treadmill as her exercises of choice, which together have made her more confident in wearing sexier outfits and bikinis.
“Mahiyain kasi talaga ako dati,” she laughed. “Nahihiya ako mag-two piece, pero ngayon ibang Marian Rivera naman. It’s time to move on,” she averred, flashing her picture-perfect smile.
Aside from exercising regularly and eating healthy, the My Lady Boss star also believes that being “confident and loving one’s” are also important in looking and feeling sexy.
The FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World victory party will be held on July 10, where Marian promises she look her sexiest as she takes on the runway.
