In demand nga yata ang beauty ni Sam Pinto dahil sa dami ng nagka-crush dito.
Ang latest na nalaman namin na may crush sa FHM’s Sexiest Filipina ng 2011 ay ang Team Azkals trainee/model/new actor na si Mark McMahon (pronounced as McMan), na half-Filipino/half-Scottish.
"Ang first crush ko pagdating ko dito [from Scotland], si Sam Pinto," said Mark in an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) recently.
Pareho sila ni Sam na nasa Tween Academy: Class Of 2011 movie pero hindi sila nagkasama sa eksena sa pelikula.
First time niyang nakita si Sam sa isang fashion show.
"The first time? I couldn’t believe it coz I never knew... like it happened so fast, I’ve never met her before and she’s so big here!"
May iba pa siyang crush na local actress...
"I’m not familiar with all the female stars but I think, Anne Curtis.
"I’ve seen her, yes, sa Philippine Fashion Week, but I haven’t spoken to her or really met her."
Nang tanungin ng PEP kung sinong tween female star ang crush niya na kinabibilangan nina Barbie Forteza, Bea Binene, Joyce Ching, Lexi Fernandez, Yassi Pressman, at Louise delos Reyes ang crush niya, ang sagot ni Mark ay...
"But they’re all really nice and pretty."
Pero pinaka-close daw niya si Yassi.
"We’re always like together kind of thing, sometimes.
"And yeah, I think she’s also half-British."
Walang girlfriend si Mark ngayon.
Nagkaroon na dati?
"I had a girfriend before, yeah, in Scotland. She’s Scottish."
Matagal na raw silang break; single si Mark ngayon at walang nililigawan.
"Gusto kong mag-focus sa trabaho, sa career ko.
"I mean like maraming magandang babae dito sa Pilipinas pero I need to focus on my work first, after that you can have everything that you want."
So, sa work ang focus niya ngayon?
"Work, football and modelling," aniya.
SEXY PICTORIALS. Si Mark ay isang underwear endorser, kaya wala siyang problema sa sexy pictorials.
"Wala po. Walang problema pero may extent, di ba? Only when it’s appropriate."
Kung sexy role sa movie?
Wala siyang inhibitions sa paghuhubad?
"Before, like, I was insecure about myself, but it’s a job, you know, it’s not like I’m nude."
"No, no. Underwear, yeah, yeah, only when it’s appropriate, you know."
FILIPINO-SCOTTISH. Nag-aaral si Mark ng Tagalog.
"Opo, I have Tagalog lessons, dun sa manager ko. I also read comics and Tagalog books."
Plano na ni Mark na manirahan dito sa Pilipinas.
"Right now I plan on living here all my life coz I wanna do [well] here."
Sa Scotland ay nakatapos siya ng course na Sports and Recreation.
"I had like, a little part-time job. In Scotland it’s hard to get jobs, ’coz it’s like recession and people from abroad are coming into the country and so it’s really hard to find jobs."
His course is related to his career as a football player.
"Exactly! I would like to continue studying here, next year maybe. Sports Science sa UST or maybe Business Management para pagtapos ko, ready na ako mag-business."
Kapag naging sikat na artista si Mark, will he give up his football career?
"No, I really like to keep on playing football."
Pero praktikal rin ang binata.
"It depends with like, what is more financially okay, so I can support myself. Like, it’s life, you need to support yourself."
