"Some people measure success with the amount of cash you get every paycheck while for others, it is about doing what you are passionate about, and it is even considered tremendous if you can have both. This September, FHM chooses the man who has done many things most of us would take three lifetimes to achieve—Gerald Anderson. He graces the cover of FHM’s annual men’s guide to style, FHM Collections.
"How can someone so young like Gerald have done so much to change the face of Pinoy pop culture? At the age of 23, he has already become one of the most bankable stars of ABS-CBN, a top endorser and most of all, an inspiration to many as he redefined the way Filipinos regard special children by his latest character Budoy. Gerald may not know exactly how he did it all but he is certainly going to make the most of it.
"To be at his age today means to do everything in your power to get as much out of the world and to get the world to see as much of you as possible. Gerald uses that power for the benefit of those in need and to set an example. “Yes, the popularity is a perk, but dahil nagiging mas mabilis para sa aking makapagbigay ng inspirasyon sa ibang tao, and they can work off that. Kumbaga, ‘kung si Gerald nga nakakatulong sa iba, siguro dapat tayo rin’, Gerald tells FHM.
"Gerald leads the pack of the country’s young and successful men who still have years ahead of them to forge success yet they are already basking in success. Dubbed by the magazine as the “Rule Breakers”, the list includes Vhong Navarro, Kean Cipriano, Ronian Poe, Stephen Ku, Papa Jack, Erwin Tagle, and Mark Rodriguez a.k.a. Batas.
"On the flip cover of FHM Collections is Melissa Ricks, who makes her FHM debut with a cover spread shot entirely on the streets of Hong Kong. Grab a copy of the September issue of FHM, now available in newsstands and bookstores nationwide for P150.
