Marian Gives In To 'Temptation,' Debuts As FHM Cover Girl

MANILA, Philippines - Marian Rivera looks "tempting" on the January 2013 cover of FHM Philippines which she graces for the first time.

Wearing a red and black bikini top, the project is made more special by the fact that it is the popular men's magazine's 150th issue. Recall that even when FHM named Marian as the Sexiest Woman in 2008, she did not grace their cover.

"This is us crossing a major one off our magazine's bucket list. It's been close to five years since we courted and hailed the Kapuso superstar as the sexiest woman in the land-we've been spying, este, eyeing her a whole lot longer, even pre-Marimar," the magazine announced on its website, Jan. 7.

"Siguro it's time na rin na may bago akong i-offer sa mga nagmamahal sa akin na matagal na nilang hinihiling. A lot of readers have been wondering why I still wasn't doing the cover, so now ibibigay ko na sa kanila," the actress, who rose to fame as Marimar, said in her cover interview. The 2007 remake of the hit Mexican soap of the same title featured Marian with real-life boyfriend and fellow Kapuso actor Dingdong Dantes.

Marian debuted at number 38 in FHM's 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2006 catalogue. Back then, the magazine already thought that she "is climbing her career ladder with ease" and that they are "betting our money she'll be a full-blown household name in the coming years."

On why she finally agreed to pose sexy for FHM, where she has been constantly on the list of Sexiest Women since 2008, "Siguro masasabi ko na this time buo na ang loob ko."

Photographed by Mark Nicdao, Marian's FHM debut issue will be released this week. Other cover images released on the magazine site sees Marian in a leopard print bikini and in two other outfits while biting her forefinger.

Since its release on FHM Philippines' Facebook page, Marian's cover photo already garnered over 16,000 "Likes" and over 1,000 "Shares" as of writing.

Population growth and the lack of economic opportunities in rural areas have driven millions of Filipinos into the squatters' colonies that dot the sprawling metropolitan area in and around Manila.
