ENZO Pineda has cultivated a wholesome image since he won as first runnerup in Starstruck 5. But now, he goes sexy in the Cinemalaya entry, “Malamaya”, doing steamy love scenes with Sunshine Cruz with whom he gets involved in a May-December affair. “I’ve come to a point that I feel I’m ready to show that I’m really an actor,” he says. “Tama na 'yung good boy roles. I have to explore and extend my horizons.”

Is this is the most daring role he has done in his career? “Yes. I’ve done print ads in my underwear but this one, pelikula talaga, e. I don’t know what my parents will think when they see the movie. I informed them about it at sabi ko, artistic naman ang pelikula at hindi vulgar. May scene na I’m shown butt naked.”

How did he prepare for his role? “When I read the script pa lang, na-excite ako. This is for Cinemalaya and, as an actor, I felt I should be ready kahit anong mangyari. I have to give what is or may be even more of what’s expected of me. Nag-work out din ako nang husto kasi alam kong may nude scenes ako and I know payat ang legs ko so I did more leg workouts.”

He discovered it’s not easy to do sexy scenes. “I told Sunshine nga, ang hirap pala nito. At first, I was so confident. But as the shooting went on, ang daming takes, paulit-ulit, so slowly, nako-conscious na ako. When I look back now, I feel that buong kaluluwa ko, I exposed in the movie. And when it enters my mind, sabi ko, ‘Grabe, nagawa ko ba talaga 'yun?’ Marami
