Heart Evangelista pours her heart out in Esquire magazine's May 2013 issue.
Being the woman of the hour— with her much-publicized against-all-odds love affair with Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero and her love-hate relationship with her parents— the controversial actress, also sheds off her previous wholesome image and shows more skin, as revealed by her sexy, but tasteful photos found inside the pages of Esquire.
The pictures reveal Heart wearing two-piece undergarments while posing seductively.
In the Esquire story written by Yvette Tan, the Kapuso actress talks about her recent decision to move out of her previous apartment— where her older sister is staying in one of the units— and transfer to an “undisclosed location,” which not even most of her family know about .
The article also talks about Heart’s decision to finally claim her independence in full— from simple stuff like managing household budget, to big decisions like choosing what projects to do, and sticking with the man she loves against her parents’ wishes.
While she is still adjusting to her newfound independence— the Esquire article notes, "from a sheltered princess to an independent woman— the 28-year-old actress is very excited about finally being on her own."
Heart also talks about how she was whirled into the world of politics. It started when she became friends with Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago, who became the “bridge” for her and current beau, Chiz.
Heart also relates how she and Chiz first met and how their love story bloomed.
She also opens up about her parents’ view of Chiz Escudero, which was “fine” in the beginning but eventually turned sour, especially when they called a press conference to air disapproval of their daughter’s relationship with the senator.
Though she is currently torn because of the feud with her parents, Heart said that “she’s the happiest she’s ever been."
The actress also tells why she is certain, contrary to the opinion of many people, that Chiz is not using her for his political ambitions and the love they feel for each other is genuine.
