Kapamilya actress Iza Calzado is one of the thirty dazzling women to grace the anniversary cover of Metro Magazine. To her surprise, the cover’s digital copy created buzz when eagle-eyed netizens notice her hand’s peculiar appearance probably due to photography elements like lighting and editing. But Iza herself didn’t make a big deal out of it and she humbly accepted Metro’s apology.
Iza isn’t bothered by her flaws, either. Although, she was honest to admit that there was a point when she hated seeing her blemishes in photos. But she later on realized that it was somewhat akin to denouncing her own body and she finally learned to look at her flaws in a neutral perspective.
A true woman of grace, Iza is not pleased with being pitted against other female celebrities especially since she has good relationship with the girls she’s being compared with. This issue came in light of the Metro Manila Film Festival wherein she collided with Judy Ann Santos via their entries “Culion” and “Mindanao”, respectively. The film “Culion” tells the story of a leprosarium community.
As reaction to the pressure of having a baby, Iza had this to say, “This is my body and these are my choices, so you have to respect it. I’m still working on a lot of things but I think I’m getting there, hopefully, by end of next year.” The talented actress confirmed that she already had her eggs frozen just to be secured because she knows she’s “not getting any younger”.
She and husband Ben Wintle marked their first wedding anniversary. Looking back on the year that passed, Iza said nothing much has changed. They are still the same couple who value their independence. They can go on a day without checking on each other’s whereabouts yet still feel secured and loved. Iza understands that her husband is a busy man but if given the chance, she would like to invite Ben for a honeymoon in Italy or South Africa.
Iza boldly answered Boy Abunda’s daring questions in the Fast Talk Challenge. She said Ben’s mind is the sexiest part of his body and she thinks her husband can’t get enough of her face. She described herself as the aggressive kisser while Ben as the gentler one. If there is one thing better than sex, Iza believes it would be none other than love.
