Sa kauna-unahang pagkakataon ay nag-pose para sa FHM Philippines ang Kapuso actress na si Rhian Ramos.
Nang makausap si Rhian ng piling entertainment press, kabilang na ang PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), sa pocket press conference ng Sinungaling Mong Puso noong Miyerkules, July 5, sinabi niyang pitong taon siyang kinumbinsi ng leading men’s magazine bago siya napapayag.
Naging malaking bahagi raw ang pagre-rebrand ng FHM kaya napagdesisyunan niyang tanggapin ang alok na magazine cover.
Paliwanag ni Rhian, “I felt like I don’t want to be a bathroom material, parang, I mean, if that’s what happens.
“I’m just saying, I don’t want to present myself in that way and they came up with a rebrand. Nag-rebrand kasi yung FHM.
“They’ve been asking me for about seven years now, because when I turned 18, they called dibs on me, so that’s what it took.
“It actually took a rebrand and then mas malupit na rin sila manligaw ngayon.”
Noon pa man daw ay nahihirapan na si Rhian na tanggihan ang alok ng FHM.
“Kahit naman dati, it was almost very hard to say no. It was always very hard to say no.
“Kung ano yung mabibigay nila sa ‘yo, they will. But I have to stay true to myself.
“Now, all their content is you can learn a lot from it, there’s a lot of art and tech and movies and stuff like that.
“And it caters to more of the guy that I wanna get to know and the kind of guy that I would like to meet and rather than a guy that I wouldn’t introduce myself to.
“That’s how I feel about it now.”
SHOOT IN EUROPE. Kasama sa naging pagkumbinsi kay Rhian ng FHM ay ang pagpayag sa naging terms niya.
Sumabay kasi sa pinaplanong launch ng issue ni Rhian ang kasal ng kaibigan at kapwa-aktres na si Solenn Heussaff.
Kuwento niya, “They came to visit me in Alabang and then we talked about it na if I say yes, ano yung terms natin.
“And then they said nga that they want it to be... initially, they want it for June issue.
“And then I said, 'I can’t because I’m going to Europe, my friend is getting married and I have to start certain things.
“'[But] here’s the thing though, if you want it to push it for June or July, my friend is in showbiz.
“'So there will be a photographer going. I can borrow her hair and make-up people, there will be stylists there, kung game kayo.
“'Kaso lang, no one can come because it’s a private wedding.'”
Pumayag naman daw ang FHM sa naging terms ni Rhian kaya natuloy ang shoot.
“A week later, everything was finalized and game na lahat, they called the entire team already. Sinet na namin.
“Ipinaalam ko siyempre kay Solenn first and foremost, tinawagan ko siya.
“So she connected with me her guest list so I could pick who could be the team.”
Proud to be me on the July cover of the all new @fhmphilofficial ! Honestly never thought i'd see myself on this cover. Who knew it just took a rebrand, a wedding in Fance, a train strike, running in London, a mysterious forrest, a bottle of wine, tons of fur, and 5 amazing people to make it happen Photography: @markednicdao Styling: @beaconstantino Makeup: @robbiepinera Hair: @johnvalle20 Location manager and life coach: @solennheussaff
Masaya rin daw ang Sinungaling Mong Puso lead actress sa kinalabasan ng kanyang cover.
“I just said I wanted to look very lux, lots of fur, lots of lace, going in the forest, but it has to look like I own the forest, parang ganun.
“Nasunod yung concept and it looked very nice and we did it with absolutely no lights, that’s just natural Europe skylight.
“It turned out better than what I wanted.”
