MANILA, Philippines – Actress Kaye Abad said she doesn’t want to be tagged as the new “pantasya ng bayan” following her sexy pictorial for a men’s magazine.

Actress Kaye Abad poses for FHM.

In an interview with Push.com.ph, Abad said people probably were just shocked when she appeared on the cover of FHM magazine's June issue because she does not normally do that.

“Pinapantasya? Hindi. Nagulat lang sila siguro dahil nag-pose ako sa [isang men’s magazine]. Akala nila todo pa-sexy yun pala pagbukas mo ganon pa rin naman. Wala ka makikita sa loob. Hindi totoo 'yun. Shocked lang siguro sila, ‘di nila akalain na magagawa ko 'yun,” she said.

Abad was also surprised that most men think she’s wife-material.

“Nagulat nga ako e. Tinatanong ko nga sa sarili ko ‘Totoo ba ‘to? Ganito ba talaga [tingin sa akin ng boys]?’ Sabi nila, ‘Oo.’ Bilang nag-start ako sa 'Tabing Ilog,' akala nila probinsyana," she said.

"Naalala ko sabi ni Zanjoe Marudo nun, wife-material daw ako. Ay, iba 'yung term niya, pambahay daw ako. Sabi ko naman, ‘Ah, eh, bakit, yaya ba ako?’” she added.

Abad said it was probably her provincial girl image that made people think that way.

“Siguro dahil simple lang ako. What you see is what you get. Hindi ako showbiz, bilang lumaki ako sa probinsya,” she said.

Meanwhile, Abad admitted that she is currently not in a relationship but is open to getting to know more people.

“Nasa stage ako ngayon na nag-e-enjoy lang ako. Late bloomer kasi ako. To all the single guys, I’m single and ready to mingle,” she said.

Abad has been romantically linked to singer-actor Guji Lorenzana. Before that, she used to be in a relationship with Parokya ni Edgar lead vocalist Chito Miranda for several years.
