MANILA, Philippines – Actor Coco Martin has confirmed that he will be one of the models who will headline the anticipated sexy underwear fashion event that will be held later this week.

Speaking to ABS-CBN News, Martin said he is looking forward to strut his stuff on the ramp wearing Bench products for the Bench Universe show this coming Thursday and Friday at the Mall of Asia Arena.

However, the actor turned shy when asked if he will be featured in the fashion show’s finale.

“Hindi po 'yata. Alam niyo naman kapag finale eh... basta maging parte lang ako ng fashion show ng Bench, masaya na ako doon,” he said.

Martin said he does not know what he will be wearing but added that he is open to modeling underwear.

“Hindi ko pa alam kay sir Ben (Chan) eh, kung ano ang magiging decision nila. Oo naman [handa akong mag-underwear lang]. Ako pa? Ewan ko kung handa na sila,” he said in jest.

Martin clarified though that he is a Bench Jeans endorser and not a Bench Body model.

New cologne

Meanwhile, Martin thanked Bench for giving him the opportunity to launch his own line of deo colognes for men.

“Pangalawa ko na ito eh. 'Yung una, pang-babae. Ngayon binigyan ako ng pagkakataon ulit ng Bench para sa sarili ko namang cologne,” he said.

Martin said he is honored that Bench continues to entrust him with their products.

“Natutuwa nga ako kasi parang pa-birthday sa akin to ng Bench. Talagang 'yung suporta na ibinibigay nila sa akin sobra sobra po,” he said.
