When one of her professors in the Ateneo jokingly quipped, "Naku baka mag-FHM ka ha?" FHMnewbie Krista Ranillo had no way of knowing that it was to become a reality, and that her FHM cover would catapult her to showbiz fame once again.
Although her coming of age caused much controversy because of her family's objection to her sexy image, Krista is confident about the path she has taken.
She admits that the walk down the "bold and daring" road was prodded by her desire to prove just how serious she is about taking on more challenging roles. True enough, her comeback film, Paupahan, merited some colorful feedback.
"...Even if it had daring scenes, I saw its potential and was challenged by it. I also thought this movie was an acting piece. Sana mapansin," hopes Krista, who happens to have taken the #69 spot on FHM's 100 Sexiest list that came out just last month.
The girl sure knows how to make a comeback with a bang. Read more about Krista Ranillo in the August issue of FHM, now available in magazine stands, bookstores and supermarkets nationwide for only P125 per copy. For more photos of Krista and her behind-the-scenes videos, log-on to www.fhm.com.ph.
