A netizen expressed her awe after she met Angel Locsin in person.
The Kapamilya actress was filming for her TV Show, ‘Iba Yan’ at Our Lady Grace Church in Caloocan, October 5.
Angelica Santos took the chance to shoot some photos of Locsin and uploaded them on Facebook.
“Nagsimba lang naman kami nakita ko na si Angel Locsin super gandaaaa ,” she wrote.
The photos immediately went viral, picked up by some news and Facebook pages.
“Magsisimba po kasi kami that day and bibili ng St. Benedict necklace. Nagulat kami kasi bigla siyang naglakad, so I decided to took some photos. Sobrang tuwang-tuwa kami kasi ang bait-bait niya. Noong natapos na sila, pinapauna niya kami sa gate para makalabas. Sobrang nakaka-overwhelm.”, Santos told News 5 in an online interview.
However, Locsin’s current physique was noticed by some netizens and even body shame the actress.
But the fans of the former No.1 sexiest woman in the Philippines were quick to defend the Kapamilya celebrity from the bashers.
Santos said she also experienced sudden gain in weight. She also has an important message to those who do body shaming:
“Pareho kaming lumalaki pero not same ng case, opo mahirap ma-body shame kasi hindi nila alam ‘yung dahilan bakit kami tumataba. So ang message ko na lang sa kanila, huwag na lang sana kayo mag-comment kung ‘di rin maganda. Hindi naman namin kailangan mag-explain sa tao kung bakit kami ganito, sana kung paano ninyo tanggapin ‘yung mga sexy, ganoon din ‘yung pagtanggap ninyo kay Angel Locsin. Katawan lang niya ang nagbago, pero hindi ang pagkatao niya.”
Moreover, Angel Locsin topped as the most admired woman among online users in the Philippines according to a poll by a UK-based market research and data analytics company last September.
