One of the reasons why Katrina Halili agreed to pose for FHM the fourth time: "It's a reminder to take care of myself more."


The Kat is back.

Katrina Halili graces the cover of FHM Philippines' January issue looking hot, hot, hot.

Like her fellow young Kapuso actresses with kids—Jennylyn Mercado, LJ Reyes, Bettina Carlos, to name a few—she rocks her post-baby body with oomph and confidence.



EIGHT-DAY EFFORT. How did she lose the extra pounds?

"Ako lang, sabi ko, 'Ay, papayat na ako.' So sabi ko, 'Ay sige, para ma-push ako.'"

What workout did she do to get her body back into FHM cover-shape?

"Naku, rush 'yan. Oo, rush. Nung nag-FHM ako, mga eight days lang.

"Kinakansel ko na, 'di na daw puwede. Tinatawagan ko sila kung puwede cancel na kasi 'di pa talaga ako pumapayat, 54 kilos pa rin ako noon.

"Sabi nila, 'Ay 'di na pwede Kat, shoot na tayo, inaantay ka na lang namin."

She related what she did given the short period, "So mga eight days na lang, rush ako, diet 'tapos super papawis—pawis sa umaga, tanghali, nag-i-stop lang ako...

"Nagso-sauna suit pa ako, grabe! As in hulas-hulas talaga!

"Pero okay naman. From 54, nag-50 ako. Ang bilis!"

SELF MOTIVATION. It's been seven years since her last appearance on FHM. Why the comeback?

Smiling, she said, "Sabi ko, why not? Puwede naman, wala namang masama. And isa yun sa mga nakatulong sa akin nung bago pa ako."

Another reason for agreeing to pose sexy again, "Mas masarap, masarap din ma-inspire yung mga mommies na."

In her interview with the staff of the country's leading men's magazine, Katrina shared, "This cover is more of a reminder, hindi lang para ipakita sa iba, pero para sa sarili ko na rin.

"It's a reminder to take care of myself more."

Katrina admitted to going through a phase when, "Hindi ako masyado inspired mag-work, yung kuntento na lang, happy na.

"Pero siyempre, na-realize ko, mas na-inspire ako magtrabaho ngayon.

"Kung gusto ko magtrabaho, gusto ko payat, para mas inspired ako mag-work.

"So kaya kinuha ko yung FHM, ginawa ko siyang challenge."

The Katrina Halili of 2015 is more mature, more introspective, more comfortable in her own skin.

LIMITATIONS? She only had one request:

"...yung nudity lang na talagang wala kang suot, yung mas makikita yung parts, ayoko, 'di kaya.

"Mas ano, mas conscious, mas parang, pati yung mga interviews ko, sabi ko, 'Puwede ayusin natin ng konti? Kasi ano, medyo, ano...

"Sabi naman nila [FHM staff], 'Okay naman, a!'

"Ako parang feeling ko, kasi nga may anak na ako, so parang lahat tinitingnan ko, pati interview ko.

"Sabi ko, 'Parang medyo harsh yung pagkasabi ko, ayusin natin ng konti.'"



DAUGHTER. Katie is a huge consideration now for Katrina, and what she will think of her mom when and if she sees these interviews in the future, "Yes, medyo, titingnan ko muna pag medyo okay, pag medyo harsh, palitan natin kasi hindi maganda tingnan."

Are her previous and current FHM covers kept safe somewhere so she can show Katie in the future?

"Oo pero siyempre 'di ba, i-aano mo rin yun, pag medyo nagka-edad siya, kailangan explain-explain ka.

"At saka sa panahon naman ngayon, medyo open na yung mga tao sa FHM, 'di ba?

"Like si Marian [Rivera] nag-FHM na, marami rin naman nag-FHM."
