- JUDY Ann Santos looks so slim and sexy in her figure-hugging blue garter dress at her launch as the first celebrity endorser of Eden Cheese. She’s the perfect role model for Regine Velasquez who also wants to lose weight after giving birth. But what if she’d get pregnant again and gain weight anew? “Okay lang, di magpapapayat na rin lang ako uli,” she says.
What’s next for her after her successful hosting stint in “Junior Master Chef”? “They’re now preparing the adult version of ‘Master Chef’,” she says. “After that, I’ll do a movie with Coco Martin, then with John Lloyd Cruz. They also want me to do a teleserye but I said dahan-dahan lang kasi my priority now is really my family. I’m also doing the indie film of Direk Joey Reyes, ‘Mga Mumunting Lihim’.”
How does she feel working with younger actors like Coco and John Lloyd? “I’m definitely excited to have new leading men like them na sikat na sikat ngayon and both considered very good actors,” she says. “Talagang hits ang teleseryes ni Coco at blockbusters naman ang movies ni John Lloyd, so I look forward to working with both of them. You can see kung gaano ka-intense si Coco when he acts so I’d like to find out what motivates him. Si John Lloyd naman, I got to work na with him when he was just starting. Baby boy pa nga tawag ko diyan. I’m so happy sa nakita kong success na narating niya.”
Did it take her long to decide that she’d endorse Eden Cheese? “No, go agad kasi I’ve been really using it for the longest time for spaghetti and for my snacks when I was dieting.”
An Eden Cheese exec says Juday is their perfect choice as endorser as she personifies their brand since people relate to her easily and, as a mom, she’s considered “maalaga” or very caring in making the right choices for her family. Her daughter Yohan appears with Juday in Eden’s “agahan ang sustansiya” TV commercial that emphasizes the importance of having the ideal food with the best “lusog lakas” nutrients for breakfast to start your day right.
