No plaster for Ava in bed scenes

Ava1AVA Mendez was introduced in “Gusto Ko Maging Pornstar” as Sab Aggabao, but starting with “Babaeng Nawawala sa Sarili”, she became known as Ava Mendez.

“May politiko kasing Aggabao ang family name na nagreklamo, so pinalitan ko na lang,” she says.

Ava is one of the few sexpots in the Vivamax stable of bombshells who can really act. Her style of acting is instinctive, so effortless. In “Babaeng Nawawala”, she stood out as the ghost of a former yaya who was impregnated by Ayanna Misola’s dad. She died and she returns to haunt Ayanna and possess her body.

Tough luck for Ayanna that Ava’s acting is just natural, whereas Ayanna was acting all over the place and needs to be restrained. In “Purificacion”, Ava was also effective in her role as a corrupt rich woman who wants to control the people around her.

Ava is now in two new films, “The Escort Wife” and “Do You Think I Am Sexy?” In “Escort Wife”, she plays Crissy, an escort girl who becomes the guide of Janelle Tee, a bored housewife who turns to prostitution to get even with her cheating husband, Raymond Bagatsing.

In “Do You Think”, she plays a cam girl who becomes the spokesperson of her colleagues when they go on strike against the owners of their website. And what’s more? She has yet another new project, “5 in 1”, with Wilbert Ross, Angela Morena, Jela Cuenca and Rose Van Ginkle, directed by GB Sampedro.

“My character in ‘Escort Wife’ as Crissy is intelligent, very independent, but ‘yun nga lang, her work is being an escort girl. I have love scenes with both Janelle and Raymond. Si Janelle, mahinhin. First time ko to work with her. Pero ‘yung girl-to-girl, nagawa ko na before sa ‘Eva’ with Angeli Khang. Feeling ko nga, mas sanay na ako sa girl to girl, e.”

In love scenes with male partners, she usually does not put on plaster to cover her private parts. “Pwera na lang kung ‘di ko talaga kilala ‘yung guy at naiilang ako. But kay Kuya Mond Bagatsing, siempre, hindi ako nag-plaster kasi kilala na siya sa industry. But at first, I was intimidated, kasi hindi siya nagsasalita. Akala ko masungit, pero nang kausapin ko, okay naman pala so we did our bedscene well.”

Right now, her career is her only priority. “Wala munang boyfriend. Hindi kasi naging maganda ang past relationship ko. Alam kong naaabuso na ako, pero pinipilit ko pa ring ayusin, until I realized na hindi dapat umabot sa ganun. You should know when to stop. Siguro dumaan ako sa ganong stage na pag may gusto kang tao, nababaliw ka, binibigay mo lahat. So tama na, career muna. Maganda ang takbo ng career ko ngayon, so yun na lang ang pag-uukulan ko ng atensiyon.”

In “The Escort Wife”, Janelle as Patricia stalks her when Janelle learns that her husband Raymond is a client of hers as an escort girl. Has she been stalked in real life?

“Yes, na-stalk na ako before kasi nailagay ko ang address ko sa social media. Someone sent me a box na may stuffed toy with flowers. Fan ko raw siya, so never ko ng inilagay uli ang address ko.

Kaya we should all be careful with our privacy settings.”
