Derrick Monasterio hesitated a bit when asked about his celebrity crush, but eventually, the Kapuso star revealed that he has fancied Kapamilya actress Jessy Mendiola for a long time.
“I’m a fan of girls na medyo voluptuous e,” he told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at the launch of the Blackwater Men’s newest TV commercial on April 4, at the PBA Café in Metrowalk, Pasig.
Derrick headlined the brand's new campaign with fellow Kapuso star Christian Bautista (right) and PBA cager Mac Belo (left).
Derrick recalled the first time he saw Jessy, “I saw her before in Greenhills when she was not that famous pa.
“Naka-smile kasi siya sa lahat, e. Whenever she passes through people, she always smiles and very accommodating kapag picture.”
The Tsuperhero star hopes that, in the future, he'll have the chance to work with the reigning FHM Sexiest Pinay, but he is keeping his expectations low.
“I think that’s impossible.
“Pero before, di ba, yung Maynila, they had ABS-CBN artists as their guests?
“So para sa ’kin, baka may chance pa!”
And when Derrick does get the chance to work with Jessy, what will be the concept of their project?
“Siyempre, sexy!” he laughed. “Joke lang!”
Other than Jessy, Derrick has a crush on fellow Kapuso stars Solenn Heussaff, Marian Rivera, and his screen partner Bea Binene.
