"Immaculate"is how the FHMteam describes Angelica Panganiban.
The 20-year-oldactress finally graces the cover of FHM (For Him Magazine) this March.
"When Santa Santitawas released, I was aware that you were already trying to invite me to pose,"says Angelica in her interview with Chrissy Icamina of FHM.
Angel, as showbiz folks would call her, explains, "At thetime, though, I felt that Santa Santita was enough to show people that Iwas ready to take on mature roles. Wala pa sa sistema ko ang mag-pose para samen's magazine. To me, timing is very important.
"So ngayong ready na ako, si Mr. M [Johnny Manahan] na yungpinag-decide ko. Kung pumayag siya, go ako dahil kaya ko na."
Angel talks candidlyabout her newfound independence, her love life, and her favorite past time.
SEXY SAMURAI. The FHM team brought Angel to thebeaches of Bohol for the sexy shoot.
While on break,Angel fiddles with her pen and stares intently at the samurai—the SudokuSamurai puzzle, that is.
Angel admits thatnow that she is living alone in her condo unit, she has found ways to entertain herself.
"I count thecars that pass by down the road from my window. And I now know that inEastwood, 32 cars pass in a span of one minute. I also read a lot, play Sudoku,and watch DVDs," says the quirky Angel.
Living by herself for the past six months, Angel says she isstill trying to learn how to do stuff by herself.
She remarks, "I told my mom that I really needed to do this,to help myself instead of relying on others to help me. She was very supportiveand tinulungan pa nga niya ako maghanap ng condo. Paglipat ko, siguro it tookme about three days just to fold my clothes and put them all in the cabinet.
"Until now I'm still adjusting."
IT'S COMPLICATED. FHM asked if Angel issingle.
"I think so," she smiles. "Ewan ko, I'm still confused!"
Angel was in a relationship with young actor Carlo Aquinofor a long time. They started going out when she was only 13.
She admits that she has learned a lot about love at such ayoung age. "One of them is to learn to respect yourself. And it's truena dapat talaga mahalin mo muna sarili mo. Kung hindi, magmumukha ka lang tangasa relationship, kasi okay ka lang nang okay sa lahat ng gusto niyang gawin,"asserts Angel.Get the full story about this sexy pictorial of Angel this March, only in FHM!
