Myra Manibog was the object of desire in the 80s flick Mga Tigre sa Gubat.
9. MYRA MANIBOG
Bombshell stats: In real life, she was Gigi Zervoulakous. She showed off her Rubenesque sex appeal in movies like Silip (1985), Bomba Queen (1985), and Isang Kumot, Tatlong Unan (1986). Though she was not built like a nymphet, she nonetheless held men captive with her fair skin and lush assets.
Life after skin flicks: After the film, Night Swimming in 1987 (presumably her last), she disappeared from the limelight. Then, in 2005, entertainment reporter Butch Francisco revealed in his column: "Through prayers, Myra Manibog has gotten over her sad past life as a bold star. Today, she is a preacher and has found peace at last."
Irma Alegre was the ultimate sex kitten in 1987's Diligin ng Suka ang Uhaw na Lumpia.
10. IRMA ALEGRE
Bombshell stats: Her real name is Jennifer Cruz. Though she wasn't a superstar, by any means, she was among the most visible bold actresses of her time. She starred in films like Makakating Hayop (1984), Naiibang Hayop (1984), and Hayop sa Sarap (1985). Her tongue-in-cheek sex appeal and Oriental features were her bold star tools.
Life after skin flicks: Her last film was 1987's Diligin ng Suka ang Uhaw na Lumpia. She was in the news recently because she ran for mayor of Pola, Mindoro. Unfortunately, she lost and was even accused of stirring up political controversy.
