Angel Locsin with John Lloyd Cruz

MANILA, Philippines – Actress Angel Locsin admitted she is trying to lose some weight to become sexier, but not for her rumored boyfriend, Azkals player Phil Younghusband.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News over the weekend, Locsin revealed she is currently on a diet because she and actor John Lloyd Cruz will start working on their first movie project together soon.

“Nagta-try pa akong makabawas pa para sa movie namin ni John Lloyd. Magsa-start na kasi kami. Kailangan kasi bongga ang body ulit natin doon,” she said.

Asked what kind of diet she’s on, Locsin said: “As much as possible, iwas sa rice talaga. Red rice or brown rice lang. Tapos may trinay akong mga cleansing. Hindi ako nagpo-pork, hindi ako kumakain ng beef.”

Locsin and Cruz will start shooting their upcoming film reportedly in November.

Meanwhile, Locsin revealed another thing which makes her look beautiful other than a healthy regimen. "Happiness. ‘Yun yata ang sikreto," the actress said.

Locsin and Younghusband have been vocal about their admiration for each other.

They, however, maintain that they are not officially a couple yet.
