MANILA, Philippines – It’s confirmed: actress Heart Evangelista is on the cover of the “election issue” of the men’s magazine Esquire Philippines.
The former Kapamilya actress, who is currently in a relationship with re-electionist senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero, is seen wearing a white, low-neck tank top bearing the word “vote” and a pair of black panties on the cover of Esquire Philippines’ May 2013 issue.

“Heart Evangelista wants you to vote wisely,” the magazine said on its Facebook page when it uploaded a photo of the cover on Tuesday afternoon.
Evangelista, 28, has often made the news for her controversial relationship with 43-year-old Escudero, whose marriage was annulled just last year.
The actress’ parents, Cecille and Rey Ongpauco, called for a press conference last month to express their disapproval of Evangelista’s relationship with the senator. The Ongpauco couple called Escudero a “braggart” and an “alcoholic” who is just “manipulating” their 28-year-old daughter to achieve his political goals.
Evangelista has consistently defended her boyfriend from her parents, and even said in one interview that she has considered marrying without their permission.
