On March 2, teen celebrity Bianca Umali turned 18. The grand celebration for the actress’s welcome to womanhood, however, happens tonight at the EDSA Shangri-la Hotel in Quezon City.
As Bianca Umali enters her first few days as a fully grown woman, many are asking if she will soon take on more mature and challenging roles. Her reply was yes, although with reservations.
The ‘Kambal Karibal’ star said she is ready for more mature and challenging roles, but not ones that would require her to be more revealing. According to a report by PEP, here’s what the actress had to say,
“Hindi po ako magpapa-sexy.
“Marami pa po, e, marami po akong bagay na gagawin, pero nasa lugar pa rin po.”
The buzz about Bianca going the sexy route started when she posted a photo of her on the beach donning a black two-piece. The young star clarified, however, that this is in no way an indication that she is now comfortable with sultry roles.
“Hindi po ganun ang intention ko sa post na yun.
“That photo was just a regular picture, usual… di ba po tayo, kapag nagpa-picture tayo ay ipu-post natin agad?
“Ganun. Hindi ko siya intention na ‘Ipu-post ko ‘to kasi 18 na ‘ko,’ hindi po.
“I just posted it kasi maganda ang photo.”
Bianca Umali also explained how her close friends in the industry, like Bea Binene, told her in jest that she’s bound for sexier roles because of the photo she posted.
“Natawa lang po ako, kasi funny lang. Kahit naman po sila, they used to see me like that.
“Yun lang po talaga yun, it’s not something else na magpapa-sexy na ‘ko.”
It is clear Bianca comes from a conservative upbringing, which is why she’s iffy about this topic. She claims, however, that her limitations are specific and clear-cut.
“May limitasyon pa rin po.
“Alam po nilang lahat and they ask me before I do things like that.
“At saka, nagsasalita naman po ako kapag ayokong gawin.”
“But as long as kaya ko, wala naman pong problema.
“Pero hindi po ako napi-pressure.
“I’m open to seeing kung ano po ang project na gusto nilang ibigay sa akin.
“Open po akong tanggapin as long as hindi po siya lalabag sa limitasyon ko sa sarili ko.”
The young actress made it clear that love scenes were out of the question. She also made it clear that she needs the approval of her grandmother – and if she refuses then Bianca will probably do the same.
“Lahat pa rin po, dadaan sa lola ko. As long as she said no, yun na po yun.”
