Actress and painter Solenn Heussaff does not count herself a fan of organic foods.
“No, it’s so hard!” Solenn told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) during the photo shoot of her new indie movie Flotsam.
“Ang hirap sundin, kasi one, mahal. Sobrang mahal, exagg [exaggerated] talaga!
“But there are places like yung Legazpi market, sa Sunday morning, marami silang organic na affordable at malaki.
“Hindi yung talong na ganito kalaki,” Solenn explained, gesturing with her hand the size of the vegie.
“So kung nando’n at hindi masyadong OA yung price, I’d rather get organic.
“Kasi at the end of the day, it’s cleaner, no pesticides, whatever.
“Basta clean, you know what you’re eating. But if not, I just buy more, more stuff!”
HER NO-NO’S. In her new indie film that was shot in La Union, Solenn plays a bride-to-be who gets cold feet.
Her character then goes to a resort in La Union called Flotsam & Jetsam to search for herself and learn surfing.
Since the setting of the movie is beach resort, Solenn and her co-stars Carla Humphries and Mara Lopez are expected to show off their sexy bods in bikinis.
How did Solenn prepare for her role?
Solenn confidently answered, “’Di naman talaga ako masyado nag-prepare kasi I’m regular when it comes to workout.
“I cheat sometimes. I have different kinds of food.
“But if it’s on a regular day, minsan sa house, I cook food myself. I make baon myself, I pack.
“I don’t eat carbs. I don’t eat fried foods. I don’t eat chichirya. I don’t have softdrinks, I don’t have alcohol.
“I exercise regularly. I don’t have any sugar, artificial sugar.
“I exericise five to six times a week, kahit yung mga tao sabi nila wala akong time? I always have time!
“Just wake up earlier or sleep earlier, don’t Instagram!” she jokingly advised.
HER ART. Aside from being a showbiz personality with two upcoming movies, one teleserye, two lifestyle shows, and one album coming out this year, Solenn is also known as a painter.
She is, in fact, set to stage a one-woman exhibit anytime soon.
“I paint, yes, ‘coz I’m doing my exhibit this year.
“I was supposed to do it on my birthday but that didn’t happen, ‘coz I have kulang. Twenty [paintings] dami.
“I want 30 paintings for my 30th year. Right now, I have 10, so 20 more.”
How does she make time for her hobby?
“Depende, yung last two months medyo busy like seven days a week.
“‘Tapos ngayon, half day-half day yung mga work ko.
“So I can still get to do it kasi ayoko talaga mag-paint pag a few hours free lang, like four hours.
“Kailangan ko like 15 hours straight so I can paint like two in the morning.”
