Iya Villania bares she was virgin before wedding

MANILA, Philippines—Should people refrain from engaging in premarital sex? Actress Iya Villania believes so.

“I do believe in that,” Villania said during a press conference on Tuesday for a brand she was endorsing, according to an article posted on Philippine Entertainment Portal.


Speaking in defense of friend Nikki Gil who had a similar view on the issue of virginity, Villania said this should not be an issue since we live in a Catholic country where premarital sex is frowned upon.

Villania said, however, that practicing it doesn’t make one less of a person.


“I don’t look down (on) other girls who practice it,” she said.

“It doesn’t make (them) less of a person. Kanya-kanya namang values ’yan eh (We each have our own set of values),” the actress said.

Villania said, yes, husband Drew Arellano waited 10 years before they had sex. The couple got married last year.

“That was how I confirmed he loved me,” Villania said in Filipino. “He was very patient.”

Villania has returned to GMA network where she began her show biz career after being a longtime talent of ABS-CBN, joining Arellano.
