Jean Garcia still hot at 40

October 1, 2008

Jean Garcia is on the cover of FHM’s October issue. She looks so alluring in that revealing pose where she is seated and covers her boobs with nothing else but her bents legs. How long did she prepare for her first sexy pictorial?

“I had no time to prepare,” she says. “Actually, two years na nila akong inaawitan to do a pictorial for them, but I have my reservations. But my manager, si Manny Valera, said baka kundi ko gagawin, later I’d regret it na hindi ko sinubukan. I’m 38, so I finally agreed to do it. I told them okay on a Friday, the following Wednesday, pictorial na agad. I was telling them give me two weeks sana to prepare, pero wala na raw time. Yun pala, iko-cover na agad sa October, their 99th issue. The pictorial was shot just three weeks ago. Ang bilis nga. But they complied with all my requests.

May peg sila ng poses that I’m supposed to do. They showed it to me at okay naman sa’kin. Tapos noong naka-layout na, they showed it to me again if I approved it. So, lahat ng lumabas diyan, may approval ko and I’m very proud of it kasi classy naman dumating at hindi mukhang binaboy lang ako.”What did her daughter Jennica say about it? “When I asked her about it, she said, ‘why not?’” Would she allow Jen to do the same pictorial? “Why not? Basta ang importante, wholeheartedly na gusto niya. Wala siyang reservations.” She’s still so slender like her daughter. How does she maintain her youthful looks? “I guess blessing yan. Ako kasi, kontento ako with my life, my children, my friends, my career.

Basically, I’m a happy person who enjoys life at kung may dumating na problema, I take it as part of life, ‘di harapin and not just worry about it. I did this pictorial also to show women my age that you can still look fit and young kahit na 40 ka na. Ako nga, feeling ko, blessed talaga ako kasi heto, matatapos, ang ‘Dyesebel’, then two shows agad ang kapalit. I play Dennis Trillo’s main villain in ‘Gagambino’ and I’m also with Eula Valdes in ‘All About Eve.’

Also, I just finished a new movie, ‘Walang Kawala,’ directed by Joel Lamangan, where I play the battered wife of a violent cop, si Emilio Garcia. It’s going to be released abroad as ‘No Way Out’ kasi the characters here all feel trapped in the kind of lives they lead. Ako, hindi ako makakawala kay Emilio even if he beats me up as I don’t know any other kind of life. I find refuge in my aquariums here and I feel like the fishes in them na wala ring kawala sa aquarium. Bale ba, Emilio here is a pervert who has sex with both women and men. He takes home two men, Polo Ravales and Joseph Bitangcol, and when he makes love to them, naririnig ko and I’m shown by myself in the kitchen drinking coffee while they’re having an orgy in the room. O, nakakaloka, di ba? “Those who’ve seen “Walang Kawala” says her performance is so effective she might be nominated for an acting award. “Sana nga. That would be nice. Pero sana, magkaroon din ito ng recognition sa filmfests abroad, para I can also experience attending those international film festivals. “How does she feel now that Jen and Mart Escudero admitted that they are on? “Mabait naman si Mart, so okay lang.

My only request is for them not to be so serious about it kasi ayokong magaya ang anak ko sa akin. I had her when I was only 19. Sana, i-enjoy muna nila ang kabataan nila and their career, lalo na’t good opportunities are coming their way.”
