During the Black Magic fashion show of Jag, people noticed quite a change in Will Devaughn's physique—from lean to a bit muscled, from six-pack to just flat abs.
He still looks good, but his fans have this gnawing thought: "What happened to his six-pack abs?"
For a moment, Will's facial expression turned a bit pensive before he replied, "Kasi before, parang I was soul-searching."
During his introspection, he didn't go to gym for about "six months."
We asked him, why the soul-searching? He answered rather evasively, "Wala lang. Di ko alam. Di ko sure, e."
Things went back to normal "two months ago," he said, but he still faced another problem: insomnia.
In an exclusive interview, he told PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal): "As far as I'm busy, nag-dyi-gym ako, yun. Before, madaling-araw, alas kuwatro or five a.m., still up pa...six o'clock [in the morning], mahirap matulog."
He clarified, however, that his sleeping habits have improved. In his own words, "much better ngayon."
We repeated our question about the things that bother him, and after pausing for a few seconds, he revealed, "Kasi mag-isa lang dito. Parang gano'n. I miss my family."
He is scheduled to see them every Christmas, but he's planning to fly to the U.S. this July or August.
For now, he's busy doing Bud Brothers, the upcoming Judy Ann Santos series Habang May Buhay, and UFX or United Fighting Extreme, with Princess Ryan as his co-host.
And what can he say about Wendy Valdez, his new screen partner?
"Okay naman...Kasi my story hasn't come out yet. We haven't taped," said the model-actor-host.
But he's very excited about the project. "Ganda. I mean as of now, number one sa noontime. Ang ganda ng story nila, e..."
The last time we had a chat with him, he was learning how to speak Tagalog fluently and was more on the thin side. He may have lost his abs, but his overall physique is still swoon-worthy, and his charm, as one showbiz reporter puts it, is "still irresistible."
