KYLIE VERSOZA is an international beauty title holder as she won the Miss International crown in 2016. 

She then went into acting and has done sexy roles in films like  “The Housemaid”, “My Husband My Lover”, “Ikaw Lang ang Mahal” and “Baby Boy Baby Girl” where she played the role of a sugar baby with Marco Gumabao.

But apparently, she doesn’t want to be identified with sexy roles even if people say she is just naturally sexy. 

“I would like to take it as a compliment and it’s not my fault kung sexy talaga ang dating ko, but I don’t want being sexy to define me,” she says at the presscon of “Penduko” where she plays a wholesome role as the love interest of title roler Matteo Guidicelli. 

“I can do a lot naman of other roles, not just sexy ones,” she adds. 

“I don’t want people saying sino ba si Kylie? Di ba yung sexy? I want to be remembered more as a good actress, mabuting kaibigan, a good daughter, mabait na tao, as I want to be treated with more respect.”

She’s just happy to do a fantasy-action movie like “Penduko” which is rated for general patronage and can be seen even by little kids. 

“I was so happy when Director Jason Paul Laxamana, who also directed me in ‘Baby Boy, Baby Girl’, got me to play the role of Liway in ‘Penduko’, which is pambata. 

"I am a mananambal here, who has special powers, and I get to do a lot of action scenes. Noon ko pa gusto mag-try ng action and I’m glad I got to do it here in ‘Penduko’.”

She has to undergo a lot of training for her action sequences in the movie. 

“I like Liway kasi she represents woman empowerment. She’s the valedictorian in their class, she’s a strong woman who champions women’s rights.

<br>I trained for the fight scenes we have in the movie, specially how to do arnis. 

"Challenging talaga ang role ni Liway kasi I’m also made to deliver long lines in malalalim na Tagalog and I’m so happy naitawid ko naman siya.”

About her lovelife, Kylie was in a relationship with Jake Cuenca for sometime but they broke up early this year. 

"She now admits that she has found a new love, a foreigner this time, but she would rather not reveal his identity as he is not from showbusiness. 

“Basta I’m so happy. I’m so happy right now,” she says.

“And I honestly want to keep it private this time. It’s better to keep it as a private relationship as it’s so much more peaceful.”
