On Monday, September 13, AJ Raval said that she is already ‘over-used’ as a sexy star but will always have something new to keep the audience enticed.
“Sa pagiging over-exposed, parang over-exposed na ako ngayon. Pero lagi namang may bago para hindi manawa ang tao sa’kin,” she said during the press conference in her latest movie Shoot Shoot.
Prior to doing the film, Raval starred in a number of projects this 2021, including Paglaki Ko Gusto Kong Maging Pornstar, Death of A Girlfriend, Nerissa, and Taya.
Looking back at her past projects as a rising talent of Viva, Raval admitted she was ‘raw’ when it comes to acting. But with Viva giving her the opportunities to improve, she is now confident in her acting skills.
“Bago ko siguro na maipapakita…before pumasok ako sa showbiz, very raw, wala pang mas’yadong nagtuturo sa’kin.
“Pero laging may bagong project, laging may bagong natutunan na nadala ko dito sa Shoot Shoot. Siguro maipapakita ko dito yung improvement pagdating sa acting,” she pointed.
Although she is not afraid to be over-used as a sex symbol, Raval was pressured to maintain her physique to suit her title and not disappoint her Viva bosses.
“Well, sa’kin wala namang mas’yadong pressure kasi nagiging totoo lang ako. Kung mga posting lang… hindi din naman ako mas’yadong nagse-sexy. Kapag chine-check mo ang Instagram ko, kaunti lang ang super sexy talaga.
“So makikita lang ang pagiging sexy sa movies dahil work kaya ko s’ya ginagawa. And ready din naman ako na gawin kung ano ang ibigay sa’kin. S’yempre ayoko ring sayangin ang trust na binibigay nila boss at ng Viva.”
Now, Raval has put effort into keeping her body fit and sexy.
“Ngayon, nagii-start na akong mag-workout, pinagha-handaan ko na ‘yung mga susunod na projects, iniingatan ko na rin ang mga kinakain ko, nagme-maintenance na rin ako sa skin ko.”
Raval will star alongside Andrew E. and Sunshine Guimary in Shoot Shoot coming on Vivamax, October 1.
