“I was raised by very conservative parents.”
One may wonder how Starstruck alumna Iwa Moto can say that line and bare all as the cover girl for the August issue of Playboy Philippines magazine, but we must take her at her word.
Men’s fantasies will become reality when they see Iwa’s persuasive beauty, curved physique and undeniable sex appeal in the 45th issue of this popular men’s magazine.
Posing sexy in magazines is not new for this young Filipino-Japanese actress. She had been featured also in FHM a couple of times and in UNO magazine once, both boosting her stock as a romantic and sexy star.
Besides, she has been a consistent celebrity in FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World since 2006.
After being named one of the Final Four and finishing as first runner-up in the third season of GMA 7’s reality-based talent search show StarStruck, she has been kept busy with many projects, including pictorials and endorsements.
Iwa is known for being an outspoken and a tough fighter and because of that, most of the roles given to her are “kontrabidas” (villains).
She was fit for playing the characters Rita Acuesta on Kung Mahawi Man Ang Ulap, Valentina in Darna and Moshi Moshi Manika in Super Twins, her first antagonist role.
Iwa, Aileen Iwamoto in real life and is the eldest of three siblings, has overcome many struggles and challenges in her career, her lovelife and her family, including her father’s death of cancer.
Just recently, Iwa hit the headlines after announcing her relationship with Pampi Lacson, actress Jodi Sta. Maria’s ex-husband.
And now, she put herself in the spotlight again for being wildest, sexiest and boldest Iwa Moto’s pictorial that she has never done it before to any men’s magazine, and all is just for the Playboy readers.
At the media confab at Ristorante restaurant in Ermita recently, this 23-year-old Kapatid actress/model admitted that she felt very self-conscious during her pictorial for being totally naked.
But, to secure her privacy and just for respect to her boyfriend Pampi, who is a son of a politician, just her manager, makeup artist and a photographer were present in said photo-shoot.
The pictorial was done at the Manila Jockey Club and the San Lazaro Leisure Park, where she was posed as a naked jockey in a stable with a horse in the background.
Asked what made her agree to do this pictorial, she replied that she found it a challenging and very beautiful concept, being inspired from the Queen of Pop Madonna.
“I was up for the challenge when I found out how creative they wanted this to be. I said yes to Playboy because I saw the effort the team exerted for this. It’s nice to finally have a shoot that was not in a studio, with a full concept and direction,” Iwa qouted by the magazine.
Doing justice to the cover taglines “young, wild and feisty,” Iwa showed off what she’s got and that she can give more for her avid fans.
The two most daring photos in the magazine are a fully naked pose with Iwa covering her breasts with one hand, and another photo also with her naked and covering her chest with a whip this time. She also revealed the possibility of shooting a frontal nude pose for the upcoming pictorials.
Though this would be considered as an intimate photo shoot for Iwa in an adult magazine, she clarified that she didn’t give it all. “I already know my restrictions. I don’t do things that put me in a bad situation,” she explained, while admitting that her mother didn’t know about this pictorial.
Even Pampi has yet see the pictures, so Iwa has no idea what could be his reaction. But she is confident that he will like it.
“I got permission from him to do this Playboy pictorial. He already knew what the concept was. For sure he will like my sexy photos,” Iwa said.
She also denied the rumors that her boyfriend did not go with her during the day of the photo-shoot to evade seeing her wholly naked. Iwa explained that at that time, Pampi was out of town, but she kept him updated about the pictorial.
When asked about the status of their relationship, Iwa said it is on the right track and that her boyfriend is very supportive of her career. She was even proud to say that her relationship with Pampi and Jodi’s son is in a good state; according to her, she even once gave the child a tutorial just the other week.
Asked if she also wants to have a baby, she affirmed, but added it will be done in the right time.
Iwa’s dream for her future would be a simple life far from the lights of camera. “I’m looking forward to a simpler life. I look to being a mom and a housewife. It should define me as a person, not just woman,” the outspoken Iwa said.
According to the Playboy, the launch was delayed due to the southwest monsoon (habagat).
This rainy season, one thing a guy would buy to warm himself up is a magazine with the sizzling Iwa Moto in a cover.
Some of the features you would see in Playboy’s August 2012 issue are “The Ultimate Sex Lifestyle,” “The Biology of Young Crime,” “The Interview with Tom Cruise,” “The Walking Dead,” “The 20Q Rhys Ifans,” and many more.
The Playboy Philippines August 2012 issue is available in all 7-Eleven, Fully Booked and Odyssey stores nationwide.
