Georgina is Ginebra's newest calendar girl

Model, host and product endorser Georgina Wilson is finally reaching out to the masses.
 Following in the footsteps of her celebrity best friends Anne Curtis and Solenn Heussaff, Wilson appears on the 2013 calendar of Ginebra San Miguel, which sells alcohol-based products.

In a press conference on Friday where she was officially launched as Ginebra’s newest endorser, the Filipino-British model said she considers her newest project as a “milestone for my career.”

Wilson was selected based on a survey conducted by Ginebra.

Georgina Wilson was styled by Pam Quiñones for this shoot.

“I can’t believe na parang I’m number one in the lineup to be selected especially because I don’t have movies out,” she explained as she compared herself to the previous calendar girls.

“The fact that they feel that I can represent their brand, that the masa is aware of me and knows me, parang it’s really surreal and a huge honor,” added Wilson, who is a regular fixture in high-end fashion magazines.

Styled by Pam Quiñones and wearing sexy swimsuits that she chose herself, Wilson appeared in five photos shot by ace lensman Marc Nicdao for the 2013 Ginebra calendar.

A beach in the north, believed to be Pagudpud in Ilocos Norte, is used as a backdrop for the shoot, which had the theme of water sports.

“We went to a location up north which, as you can see, is not the usual terrain even if there are beaches and stuff. We wanted to shoot something different kasi usually down south ‘yung mga shoots,” she said as she points to one of her photos.

“I was very hands-on in choosing the outfits para maging sexy, like ‘yung mga bikinis that I like wearing,” she added. “And I like the theme of water sports because I think that to have that fun spirit and a body that you can be happy with, you have to be active in sports, you it was something na talagang fit sa calendar.”

Asked how long she prepared her body for the shoot, Wilson said: “Two months. And it wasn’t easy.”

“As in wala nang sweets, dinedma ko ang rice, lahat-lahat na and I worked [out] every single day. So [for me] it was something that was a big project, both physically and mentally. And an honor, all in all.”

The new calendar will be available in supermarkets, groceries and sari-sari stores starting next month.

On showbiz
While she made a number of TV guestings over the past months, Wilson believes that her stint as a calendar girl is her first showbiz outing of sorts.

Now that she has made the first step, is she ready to venture into acting, similar to Curtis and Heussaff?

“If ever the right movie comes along or there’s a project or teleserye na bagay sa akin, I’ll be very willing to take it,” she said.

Asked if she is open to competing with her celebrity friends, the Filipino-British model said: “I really respect the careers of my friends… Anne and Solenn share their experience with me. They give me tips.”

Georgina Wilson says sorry to Nora Aunor

Celebrity Georgina Wilson on Friday finally spoke on the controversial 

mock-up image of superstar Nora Aunor that she uploaded on Twitter last month.

The mock-up image, which showed Aunor wearing a two-piece swimsuit, made fans of the veteran actress angry.

Wilson made it clear, however, that she was not the one who created the photo, adding that she has great respect for Aunor.

"I respect Ms. Nora Aunor. A fan sent me that photo. Hindi ako ang gumawa and I posted it kasi parang I thought it was funny. Some people were offended so I took it down. I didn't say anything," she said as she was launched as the newest calendar girl of Ginebra San Miguel on Friday.

"Of course my intention is not to offend her," she added. She's our superstar and I was talking to Tita Gloria (Diaz) about it and she said that people just took it the wrong way."

Wilson also apologized to Aunor and her fans.

"I apologized and I also feel that I really didn't mean anything wrong. And if I offended her fans and her, I'm really sorry about that. But I really would never offend someone who's already an institution in our showbiz world," she said.

While a number of people found the mock-up image of Aunor "disrespectful," Wilson initially thought of it as a tribute of sorts to the country's "Superstar."

"Akala ko mga fans niya ang gumawa noon so I thought, 'how cute naman of them to think of me and put her picture. Big fan naman ako ni Ate Guy. So na-confuse talaga ako when it became a big issue.

 But I'm sure it's not an issue for her, she's a superstar," she said.

Last month after the photo was uploaded, Aunor gave Wilson some words of advice.

"Ituloy lang niya kung ano 'yung mga pintas na gusto niyang iparating sa akin, at tatanggapin ko nang buong puso," Aunor said when asked for her message to the Filipina-British model.
