The 1990s paved the way for some actors to enter the entertainment industry by traversing the sexy films.
Does Leandro Baldemor and Jay Manalo still ring a bell? As the loose censorship enjoyed by sexy films in the 70s, 80s, and 90s is backed up, the part of the industry dwindled down. Below are some of the 90s male bold stars and where they are now.
