MANILA -- Making it to the Top 10 spot of the FHM's 100 Sexiest Woman in the Philippines came as a surprise for young actress Empress Schuck.


The 20-year-old actress said she never rallied or asked her fans for votes but she's thankful for the support shown by everyone in this year's sexiest list.

"Nagpapasalamat ako sa lahat ng mga bumoto sa akin kasi hindi ko naman ini-expect na makakapasok ako. Isa siyang karangalan para sa akin," she said during the press conference of her upcoming movie "Tuhog."

She added: "Hindi ako makapaniwala. Nagpost ako nung nakapasok ako pero hindi ko naman sinabi na magvote kasi nakakahiya. Hindi naman ako nagpromote ng masyado, yung ibang fans 'yung nagcampaign talaga."

Marian Rivera returned to the No. 1 spot as this year's sexiest woman followed by Sam Pinto, Angel Locsin, Jennylyn Mercado, Cristine Reyes, Solenn Heussaff, Ellen Adarna, Anne Curtis and Jackie Rice.

Empress, who was the magazine's cover babe for the March 2013 issue, received 683,118 votes.

She said her FHM cover is her way of telling everyone that she's ready for a more mature and challenging roles both on television and movies.

"Isa na iyon sa mga steps para masabi ko na ito 'yung the new Empress. The more mature and willing nang umaccept ng mas mature and challenging roles," she added.

Aside from her daily stint in "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala" opposite KC Concepcion, Sam Milby and Judy Ann Santos, she's set to star in comedy movie "Tuhog" with Enchong Dee, Jake Cuenca and comedienne Eugene Domingo.

She plays the role of Angel, a young girl who preserves herself for the man she loves.

Empress said moviegoers will see a different side of her.

"Hindi ko naman masasabi na nagpa-sexy ako. Siguro makikita niyo sa pelikulang ito yung mga nangyayari lang talaga sa totoong buhay. Makikita rin dito yung pinagdadaanan ng mga magboyfriend-girlfriend. Hindi ko masasabi na nagpasexy ako kasi ginawa lang namin yung mga talagang nangyayari in real life," she added.

Produced by Skyligh Films, "Tuhog" will grace the big screen starting July 17.
