MANILA, Philippines -- Comedian and host Vhong Navarro denied that he had a nose job and had his skin whitened.

"Hindi ako nagpagawa ng ilong, kung magpapagawa ako sana ay perfect na," Navarro told host Vice Ganda on "Gandang Gabi Vice" on Sunday night.

Navarro, one of "It's Showtime" hosts, is known for his lean physique. He joined show business as part of the dance group Street Boys when he was only 16.

Asked what he did to achieve his current look, Navarro said: "Siguro nagkalaman na ako.... dati kasi sobrang payat ko."

In the interview, Navarro also denied taking glutathione to achieve whiter skin.

"Hindi talaga, hindi ako naggu-glutathione. Kasi hindi lang ako naarawan pero kapag naarawan ako biglang itim lahat 'yan," he said when asked praised him for his fair complexion.

Navarro is currently promoting "Shake, Rattle & Roll 14," an entry to Metro Manila Film Festival.
