MANILA – Marian Rivera is not yet ready to pass on the title of being the sexiest woman in the Philippines.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Wednesday, Rivera said all those in the list should just wait for the results of this year’s poll of the men’s magazine FHM.

“Hindi ko po alam [kung ready na ako ibigay ang title]. Tignan natin. Natawa po ako doon,” she said.

“Sa totoo lang kapag sinasabi sa akin yan, nahihiya talaga ako. Pero tignan natin. Ang hirap din magsabi. Sino ba namang babae ang hindi gusto maging sexy?” she added.

Last year, Rivera got the most number of votes out of the millions cast by readers of the men's magazine. Rivera won the same title in 2008, and placed fifth in 2012 in the same poll.

Voting for this year’s survey began last week.

Dingdong graduates

Meanwhile, Rivera shared how proud she is of boyfriend, Dingdong Dantes, who recently graduated from college.

“Nakakataba ng puso tapos alam ko sa sarili niya. Naiiyak din siya kasi 'yun ang pinakahihintay niyang araw, na maka-graduate siya. Kasi gusto din niya mag-masteral. Finally natupad na 'yung pangarap niya na maka-graduate siya,” she said.

Rivera said she recalled her own college graduation when she accompanied Dantes during his commencement exercises.

“Tuwang tuwa ako. Nag-flashback 'yung nag-graduate ako nung college. For sure, 'yun ang naramdaman niya,” she said.

Now that Dantes finally has a bachelor’s degree, Rivera said she support her boyfriend in whatever he wants to pursue.
