MANILA, Philippines -- Lovi Poe takes on her "wildest role" yet as she goes topless on the cover of the latest issue of men's lifestyle magazine Rogue.

Lovi Poe is Rogue's December 2012 cover girl

Photographed by Mark Nicdao, the morena actress is seen on the December 2012 cover of Rogue sporting a short wig from Jing Monis as she poses topless, baring one of her tattoos inscribed on her left ribcage.

In earlier interviews, Poe said the tattoo, which spells "My Gravity," is dedicated to her father, the late film icon Fernando Poe, Jr.

For her Rogue appearance, the 23-year-old actress was styled by Pam Quiñones. Wearing little else aside from a pair of long black gloves, a knee-high skirt and a collar garment, Poe is quoted as saying this is "the wildest role I've ever played."

Hailing Poe's second appearance in the same magazine -- she also posed for Rogue's cover in July 2011 -- netizen Jesse Joe Castillo commented on the publication's Facebook page, "Hotter the second time around!"

Netizen Eljhay Zamudio, meanwhile, said, "Very international cover. Hands down" -- a comment echoed by many others who praised the magazine for being "world-class."

Facebook user Lei Cruz was also all praises for Rogue's December 2012 cover, saying, "[It's] definitely the best cover in Manila this month."
