Here's the magazine said on its website:
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. "Marian is climbing her career ladder with ease," we wrote in our FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2006 catalogue, where she debuted at number 38. "We're betting our money she'll be a full-blown household name in the coming years." True enough.
"Siguro it's time na rin na may bago akong i-offer sa mga nagmamahal sa akin na matagal na nilang hinihiling," says Marian in her cover interview. "A lot of readers have been wondering why I still wasn't doing the cover, so now ibibigay ko na sa kanila. Siguro masasabi ko na this time buo na ang loob ko." Finally, our intentions align with hers.
It goes without saying that our 150th issue is grand and majestic. We packed our pages with a slew of Pinoy geniuses/heroes (Ely Buendia, Michael V, Lourd de Veyra, Erik Matti, Eddie Garcia, Kiefer Ravena, and more), a collection of top models (Regine Angeles, Ornusa Cadness, Sanya Smith, Daiana Menezes, and more), and, most notably, a collection of FHM icons who paved the way for today's batch of cover girls (Aubrey Miles, Maui Taylor, Katya Santos, Francine Prieto, Paloma, and more). This may very well be our life's work, FHM Nation! Who wouldn't buy it, right?
FHM 150 will be available in all newsstands and bookstores nationwide this week! You can also check it out in digital format at the Summit Newsstand (click here).
As of this writing, Marian's cover photo on FHM Philippines Facebook page is getting more than 15,000 “likes”, more than 1,000 “shares” and over 800 "comments" and counting. "FHM" also trends on Twitter Philippines after the magazine revealed the cover photo on Facebook.
No wonder Marian Rivera is considered as one of the finest and famous celebrities in the country!
