When he was interviewed by members of the press yesterday, Kapuso leading man Mike Tan, revealed that he is on a strict diet in preparation for his photo shoot on Thursday for an article in Cosmo magazine.
Mike has no idea yet as to how "sexy" the pictorial would be although he trusts that his manager GMA Artist Center will take care of it and make sure that the pictorial will be "within the limits" so to speak. He was told, however, that he would most probably be going topless.
Last year, Mike walked down the ramp with nothing on but his briefs during the Cosmo Bachelor Bash. With his well-sculpt body, he definitely has nothing to be ashamed of.
Mike has gone a long way since he entered showbiz through the GMA talent search Starstruck Season 2. Although he is now a full-fledged celebrity, he said that nothing much has changed in terms of his lifestyle.
"Wala naman masyadong pagbabago sa buhay ko except that mas daring na nang konti ang mga roles ko, mas focused ako sa work, dumami ang trabaho pero halos wala namang pagbabago sa akin," he said.
Mike appears in the afternoon soap "Faithfully," which airs daily on GMA-7's Afternoon Prime programming block. Mike said that he is enjoying portraying his character in the said afternoon soap.
"Mejo may pagka-kontrabida ang role ko dito e although hindi naman talaga siya sobrang masama, hindi lang maayos ang pagpapalaki sa kanya," explained Mike.
Mike has tried roles ranging from the most lovable to the most detestable, is there a specific role that he still wants to try?
"Yes. I want to be a psycho-killer! (laughs).
