IN PHOTOS: Why Jessy Mendiola deserves FHM’s ‘sexiest’ tag
Kapamilya actress Jessy Mendiola has been voted as the sexiest woman in the country by a men’s magazine, and there’s no better and more accessible place for proof than her Instagram feed.
Mendiola, who placed 23rd in last year’s FHM poll, emerged as this year’s sexiest woman and defeated fellow ABS-CBN talent Nadine Lustre, who had the lead at one point in the partial tally.
The 23-year-old Mendiola was known for her role as “Maria Mercedes.”
Earlier this month, her portrayal of a sexy pole dancer on “Maalala Mo Kaya” trended online. The FHM Sexiest Woman title is determined through public voting.
GMA actresses Jennylyn Mercado and Marian Rivera won the title in the past three years. Sam Pinto was Philippines’ sexiest in 2011 and 2012, while Angel Locsin got the title in 2010. YG/RAM
My body may not be perfect but that will not stop me from being confident with myself. I’ve had my fair share of body shaming comments. So I know how it feels like to be called “FAT” or “TUMABA”. Well, just to inform some of you “PERFECT” people. We all come in different sizes and shapes but that shouldn’t stop us from being happy with our own bodies. There are times that you will gain weight and there are times that you will lose it. It’s normal. It just shows that you are a human being. So whether you are curvy, malaman, skinny, too skinny, on the plus size or even on the plus plus size, you have ALL the right to be confident with yourself because that is who and what YOU are. If you don’t love yourself enough, who else will? Think about it. So go ahead girl, wear that bikini and FLAUNT it. After all, it’s YOUR body. Not theirs. Sabi nga ni Demi Lovato “What’s wrong with being confident?” 😊 #loveyourself #Laban
