This time, Piolo Pascual gets his solo Esquire cover.

Unlike his usual glossy appearances in other magazines, Kapamilya idol Piolo Pascual sported a gritty, understated look on the September issue cover of Esquire. The cap Piolo was wearing is actually owned dby photographer Geric Cruz, who shot the cover.

In a Facebook post, Esquire said Papa P will be sharing his thoughts on fatherhood, fame, and his role in Lav Diaz’s movie Hele sa Hiwagang Hapis.

Of all his experiences on cam, Piolo told Esquire that playing Simoun, who is based in Jose Rizal’s El Filibusterismo, is one of his most challenging roles to date.

Esquire last had Piolo on the cover in 2013, when he was promoting the film, On The Job. At that time, he shared the cover with co-stars Gerald Anderson and Joel Torre. 

“I think I’ve come to the point in my life where I can say, ‘I think I’ve done enough.’ I’ve done more than enough. But if God is going to take me some place else, I won’t mind. But for now, damn, man… never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I’d get this far,” Piolo said. 

The September 2013 issue will also be giving readers an inside look at the set of the film, as well as Lav’s directing style. 

With the theme “Say You Want A Revolution”  (a line from Revolution of The Beatles, yes?), Esquire also touches on poems from writer and poet Pete Lacaba and a love story from the Martial Law era.
