If fans of Meg Imperial are already shocked by her FHM cover, the 19-year-old TV5 mainstay is warning them that there are even sexier photos inside the December 2012 issue, due out on Monday.
In an interview with News5, Meg revealed that she felt nervous during the photo shoot. But she relaxed after telling herself it’s normal to wear little clothing when going for a swim — the scenario of her pictorial.
“Summer ang aura ko, parang ganun lang. Nagkataon na sa FHM makikita ‘yun,” explained the former cast member of “Bagets” and “Midnight DJ”.
Meg’s men’s magazine debut comes on the heels of fellow TV5 actress Ritz Azul’s FHM cover appearance. But based on the cover image alone, her pictorial seems a tad more revealing.
Meg, a Viva talent, said her new sexy image will be highlighted by her upcoming launching movie, “Menor de Edad”.
In this sexy drama directed by Joel Lamangan, she plays a student who gets into a torrid affair with her teacher, played by Wendell Ramos, with whom she even has a bed scene.
Meg hopes “Mendor de Edad” will lead to more important projects.
“Siguro dito na mag-uumpisa ‘yung nga heavy roles. Na ‘yun talaga expected ko,” she said.
She admits her fans were initially shocked by her decision to go the sexy route. But so far they have been mostly supportive.
Of course, all this has the approval of her parents, especially her mother. “Hindi naman ako nagdedesisyon nang hindi approve si Mommy,” she said.
Meg is also prepared for the workings of the rumor mill, which goes on overdrive whenever an actress junks her wholesome image in favor of a more mature one.
She bravely answered the gossip linking her to “Menor de Edad” producer Jesse Ejercito, a brother of former President Joseph Estrada.
“Wala! Nasa kanila na ‘yun… Konsensya na nila ‘yun e. Kasi alam ko naman na sa sarili kung ano ang totoo,” she said.
