Although she was already a young mother of two that time, Osang still brought in the crowds to her films and was the undisputed sex goddess of cinema to this day, the throne she left behind remains vacant — maybe because there really is no one like her. Her nude painting session with the respected artists was hailed as a merging of art and popular culture and Ligaya ang Itawag Mo sa Akin became a box-office hit and established Rosanna as an actress of note she eventually won an Urian four years later for La Vida Rosa.
A lot of events transpired after that — with Osang going on a roller-coaster ride both in her career and personal life. But now, at 36 years old and a grandmother of two with another one on the way — in April to be delivered by daughter Grace , she is once more posing in the nude for local artists.
The invitation to pose in the nude a second time happened last December — during the opening of the art gallery of Cristy Fermin. Yes, you may not know this, but Cristy had always been a supporter of young artists and had accumulated artworks through the years.
With her vast collection of works, she decided to open in the Scout Lozano area her own gallery, which she called Mga Obra ni Nanay quite apt since showbiz people call her Nanay. It was in this art gallery where Osang met another group of artists who offered her to — why not?
Initially, she demurred. She wished she had more time to prepare — lose weight actually since she was only lbs. Now, coming straight from the holidays, she tips the scale at a little over lbs.
The finished works were put on display last night at the lobby of UP Cine Adarna during the premiere of her new movie, Aurora. She left the house feeling nervous — not knowing what to expect this time. Garbed in a loose dress with spaghetti straps and a long wig that the artists later asked her to remove, she chatted first with the people around her to ease her nerves.
In no time, she felt relaxed in her presence and was ready for the nude painting session. As it turned out, that was exactly what the artists wanted.
This second time around, Osang discovered that most artists today frown on stiff poses. Oh, and she also felt different this time.
She now admits that when she was doing that promotional jig for Ligaya ang Itawag Mo sa Akin, it was partly for the money. And she also felt awkward and uncomfortable then.
Back in , she had a husband. And when he does he will even be proud of the fact that his Lola Bombshell which is how some friends now fondly call Osang was once a great sex goddess admired, respected and won accolades in her career.
