Have you seen Alden Richards’ new EDSA billboard? The sizzling hot photo of the young Kapuso hunk made heads turn and created a buzz that captured the Twitter addicts’ attention.  In fact, #sizzlingalden became the number one trending topic in the Philippines last February 15, a day after the billboard was put up.
 
“Nagulat po ako, kasi hindi ko po akalain na ganun ang kalalabasan ng pinaghirapan ko for almost two months. Pinaghandaan ko po talaga yung topless pictorial ko para hindi po ako mapahiya since this is my first billboard and my first topless shoot for Folded & Hung,” Alden told the GMANetwork.com team during his valentine date with fans.
 
He adds that “Sobrang fulfilled po ako and sobrang blessed na maganda yung kinalabasan. Natuwa po yung boss ng F&H. And then parang sa lahat po ng Folden & Hung stores mailalagay yung litratong yun. Sobrang nagpapasalamat po ako sa GMA, sa GMA Artist Center, sa pamilya ko, sa Diyos at sa lahat ng tumutulong sa akin kasi kung wala sila, wala rin po ako. Hindi makukumpleto yung pagkatao ko kung hindi nila ako tinutulungan.”
 
The young actor promises that we can expect a lot from him in his upcoming projects, including his new prime time soap, My Beloved.
 
“Masaya po ako na maganda yung kinalabasan, Masaya rin ako na maraming naka-appreciate ng billboard at ng mga pictorials ko. They will be seeing more of me like that in the future.”
