"Naku, sasabihin na naman ng mga tao, 'Bagay sa 'yo yang suot mo kasi ahas ka'." 

This was Yam Concepcion's initial reaction when she was asked to put on a snakeskin dress for her Preview cover photoshoot, the result of which was uploaded Friday afternoon. 

The actress has recently found herself in the spotlight thanks to her role as a cheating wife in the hit late night teleserye "Halik" and she's well aware that there's a lot who can't separate fact from fiction. 

She talked to the magazine about the stares she would get whenever she would eat out at a restaurant, and the bashing she received from her followers online due to her portraying the series' kontrabida. 

"I'm not gonna lie, nu'ng umpisa affected ako," Concepcion admitted. 

"People are just so mean. Like, ano ba, that's not me, that's just the character I portray. But sometimes kasi people take it too personally eh. They would think na you’re really malandi, kabit ‘yan, pumapatol ‘yan—all these hateful words.

"Of course, I’m a very sensitive person so I get hurt also."

She realized, however, that the criticisms was a testament of her effective portrayal of her character Jade. 

This is the first time Concepcion headlined an issue of Preview, six years into her acting career. 

Her photos were taken by Dookie Ducay with styling from Steven Coralde. Below are just some of her other snaps from the shoot, including shots of her wearing other animal prints:
