Marian Rivera on why she finally agreed to be on the cover of FHM: “This time kasi nag-swak na ang gusto kong mangyari sa gusto [ng FHM] mangyari… [That] this would be a special issue, that it would be different, mas maraming concepts sa loob, mas makabuluhan at pinaghandaang mabuti… so everything fell into place.”

The world surely did not end and there’s nothing better than starting the new world with one of the country’s biggest stars— FHM's Sexiest Woman Marian Riveraas she  bares her sexy and gorgeous side in the 150th issue of FHM this January.

It has been five years since Marian won the much-coveted Sexiest Woman title of FHM. Since then, many of her fans and followers have been prowling for her first-ever FHM appearance. So why do the cover only now?

Marian reveals to FHM, “Siguro it’s about time din na may bagong i-offer sa mga nagmamahal sa akin ng matagal na nilang hinihiling… Masasabi ko na this time buo na ang loob ko.”

Marian also shares how timely her decision to do the FHM cover is in terms of what the issue is going to be.

“This time kasi nag-swak na ang gusto kong mangyari sa gusto [ng FHM] mangyari… [That] this would be a special issue, that it would be different, mas maraming concepts sa loob, mas makabuluhan at pinaghandaang mabuti… so everything fell into place.”

She adds, “FHM showed exactly how this shoot would turn out, [they] were honest and gave me everything I wanted, so walang dahilan para tanggihan ko ang pagko-cover.”

The thing about doing the first cover is that when it comes out, the cover girl would try to outdo herself by coming out with a second cover, but more daring.

Can the FHM nation expect the same thing with Marian?

“I’m not closing any doors or anything kasi hindi naman bago sa akin doing covers for magazines,” she tells FHM. “Iba lang talaga ang demands on me doing a men’s magazine kaysa sa women’s magazine.”

In the 150th issue of FHM, Marian also talks about her early beginnings in show business as Marimar, her non-showbiz career that came before stardom, and more.
