When FHM Philippines' Sexiest Woman of the World 2012 Sam Pinto was asked which actor she wants to be paired with, she mentioned two names: Coco Martin and Sid Lucero.
"I look up to them as an actor [sic],” the actress, who's currently shooting the second Agimat movie along with Judy Ann Santos and Bong Revilla, said during a phone interview with PEP.ph. “At a really young age, na-prove na nila sarili niya (At a really young age they were already able to prove themselves [as good actors])."
"Maganda if I have a project with them. (It'll be nice if I have a project with them.) It's like... it's going to be challenging," she added.
Sam shared that though topping FHM's Sexiest list twice wasn't originally part of her plan, it was nevertheless a welcome opportunity, as she was able to get four endorsement deals with her noticeable rise in popularity. Sam also said that though she still has reservations with baring her body, she thinks it's part of her appeal.
"I still have limits," She said. "I don't really show everybody everything para may konting mystery pa rin sa akin. Kumbaga, yung mga tao, laging may hinahanap dahil hindi ko binibigay lahat. (I don’t really show everything so I’ll still be a little mysterious. That way, people will always want more because I don’t give them everything.)"
She also thinks her being single was a factor in winning the poll.
"I'm very single," Sam stated. "Tapusin muna ang FHM. Kapag di ka single kasi, feeling ko may factor sa votes (I’ll finish FHM first. I have a feeling that not being single is a factor in the votes.)."
She jokingly added, "Ayoko rin kasi na ma-disappoint ang boys. Baka ma-sad... (I also don’t want to disappoint the boys. They might get sad…)"
