FHM interview:

It wasn’t scary at all, was it?
Well, now that it’s done, not anymore. But I was really scared a week before.

So scared you cried over it, say some news sources. Why?
It wasn’t so much that I would be doing the shoot, it was because I felt I needed to work out some more in preparation for the shoot. Natakot ako kasi di ba if I’m going to be on the cover dapat yung sexy talaga ako? Believe it or not, last week may bilbil ako. Kaya nag-crash diet ako. As in pag may nakahaing rice, isang kutsara lang ang kinakain ko para matikman ko lang siya!

We only set the whole thing rolling a week ago, yet we’ve been waiting three years for you.
Thank you, and I feel very flattered. It makes it even more special because I was still 15 back then. But here I am finally. What can I say? Thank you dahil sobrang naging patient kayo sa akin.

This will officially be the day Cristine Reyes becomes a big sexy star. More than a hundred thousand copies out and there’s no taking them back.
Ako?! (Hesitates) Eh…yata…ewan! Hindi ko alam, ayokong magsabi na sexy ako! I mean, yung ginagawa ko kanina I can really say for myself na sexy yun. I myself was surprised when I saw the pictures—ako ba yan?! But there, that’s another reason I was so scared of being on the cover of FHM—mas takot ako kung anong sasabihin ng mga taong bibili ng FHM pag lumabas na siya. INTERVIEW: ALLAN HERNANDEZ
