In an interview with “The Buzz” which was aired on Sunday, Ricks clarified, however, that it will still depend on the story.

“It depends on the role. I started na with ‘Nasaan Ka Elisa’ which is very, very risky. Marami rin silang na-cut na eksena roon. Ngayon as Joanna [on ‘Walang Hanggan’], medyo maldita. I’m open to feistier and more daring roles. Depende naman po sa kuwento yan,” she said.

Ricks said she fully trusts the ABS-CBN management on selecting the right projects for her.

“Hindi naman ako pababayaan ng ABS-CBN dahil so far inaalagaan nila lahat ng mga naging roles ko,” she explained.

Meanwhile, Ricks said she is happy that a lot of people liked her FHM Philippines cover.

Ricks proudly admitted that her photos on the newest issue of the men's magazine were edited but was quick to add that the photos still show her real body.

"My pictures were Photoshopped because they were enhanced," Ricks told ABS-CBNnews.com on Thursday during a press conference for the magazine's September 2012 issue.

FHM's September 2012 issue showed Ricks wearing skimpy swimsuits and underwear paired with blazers and shimmery jackets.
