It has been two years since her debut on the cover of FHM-Philippines.
Now, Jackie Rice is back, and emerges with a sexier, more mature, image.
After her eight-month hiatus from the afternoon soap operas, the Kapuso star returns to the daily grind in the teleserye, Kasalanan Bang Ibigin Ka.
Jackie now flaunts even sexier curves she achieved from intense, daily boxing workouts and a no-carb diet, which began during the summer special of Bubble Gang.
She also reveals why she still needs to stay thinner for her upcoming teleserye. “Dun sa role ko kasi parang mas bagay na payat ako with Michael de Mesa kasi pag pinartner ako sa kanya na medyo may laman, magmumukha akong bagets,” Jackie tells FHM.
The former Starstruck Survivor is also taking her acting career to greater heights by doing mature, challenging roles. “Gusto kong i-try kung hanggang saan yung kaya ko in terms of acting. Mas maganda kung iba-iba rin yung nakikita ng tao…Dati kasi taga-isla ako sa Sisid, island girl na pearl diver. Ngayon, architect ako dito, so medyo motherly,” she says.
Jackie’s catapult to the top of the FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World list, where she lands on 7th spot, is a promising sign that her career is all set to reach its peak.
Jackie says, “Siguro kasi mas visible na ako sa TV. Mas pinapakita kong deserving din akong tumaas yung ranking ko [kaya] siguro nagustuhan na rin ako ng tao.”
