Marian: Dingdong and I respect each other’s work

Marian Rivera opened the new year with a career first: by being the cover girl of FHM Magazine.
 
Which begs the question: did Marian’s boyfriend Dingdong Dantes approve of her provocative photo shoot?

According to the “Temptation of Wife” star, there was really no need to ask for Dingdong’s permission or approval.
 
“Malaki ang respeto namin ni Dingdong sa bawat trabahong ginagawa namin. So para sa akin, wala naman akong ginawang masama,” Marian told members of the press on Thursday, January 10.
 
She added: “Malaki respeto namin sa trabaho namin e, kaya sapat na yun para gawin namin ang bawat gusto naming gawin.”
 
“Ang trabaho ay trabaho. Iba naman ang personal na buhay.”
 
Still, Marian believes Dingdong is proud with how the FHM Philippines pictorial turned out.

“Tingin ko naman proud siya na nag-cover ang girlfriend niya ng ganun ka-sexy,” she quipped.
 
The actress is also the cover girl for the January-February 2013 issue of Women’s Health magazine.
 
“Thankful lang ako na ang umpisa ng taon ay maganda talaga,” she said of her two magazine covers this month.

‘Natutulala ako sa kanya’

 
What can fans expect from Marian this 2013? For one, she’ll been more visible on the big screen this year.
 
The Kapuso actress said she’s currently working on a movie with Richard Gutierrez, tentatively titled “Lady Boss.”
 
She also confirmed working on a movie with Kapamilya star Ai-Ai delas Alas.
 
“Sobrang saya ko. Sobrang nakakataba ng puso saka ang dami kong natututunan kay ate Ai sa pagco-comedy,” Marian said.

The actress further said: “Kahit ako minsan, natutulala sa kanya minsan pag nagli-line siya kasi sobrang galing talaga niya.”
 
“At least masasabi ko na nakasama ko siya, at happy ako dun.”
