FHM Philippines’ first-ever Pinay cover girl and former winner of its legendary FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World campaign, makes a major comeback as she graces the cover of the magazine's April issue.
Actress Sunshine Cruz admits, “Sa totoo lang, di ko talaga akalain na gagawa pa uli ako ng FHM cover.”
After her groundbreaking appearance back in April 2000, Sunshine’s place in FHM history had already been secured, that it did not matter much if she declined previous invitations to do another sexy photo shoot with the magazine.
After all, she hasn't been active in showbiz for the past several years.
“Matagal din naman talaga akong nag-lie-low.
"I’m very honored [FHM] never stopped asking me back kahit may tatlong kids na ako,” says Sunshine.
13TH ANNIVERSARY AS FHM COVER GIRL. The staff of FHM could not be anymore grateful to Sunshine for changing her mind after so long.
It is only timely that she chose to do another photo shoot with them exactly 13 years after she did her first cover.
“At first, I couldn’t imagine myself doing another sexy pictorial.
“But at the same time, I’d like you to know that I was really excited to do this cover."
She also tells FHM that it was her manager, Alfie Lorenzo, who convinced her to do this month’s cover.
And with the approval of her kids, sisters, mom, and friends, Sunshine finally agreed to do it one more time.
Sunshine explained, “I’ve seen FHM’s rise through the years.
“Nakikita ko na dumadami ang mga hot mamas na na-feature ninyo.
“In fact, you’re probably the first to portray a mother’s hot and sexy side, and I feel honored to be regarded as 'super hot' as fellow cover girls Geneva Cruz, Ms. Eula Valdes, Ms. Jean Garcia, Ms. Dina Bonnevie at marami pang iba.
“Ang totoo, ang buhay at mundo ko ngayon umiikot lang sa mga anak ko, my mom, my sisters, and my friends,” she tells FHM.
She added, “Kasi sila talaga ang nagbibigay sa akin ng lakas ng loob especially now that everybody knows na meron tayong mga pagsubok na dinaraanan.
"I just take things a day at a time and lahat ng tiwala at pag-asa ko ay dinaraan ko na lang sa dasal.”
