MANILA, Oct 19 (Mabuhay) — ACTRESS Angel Locsin clarified that her healthy figure is not a preparation for the upcoming ABS-CBN fantasy series “Darna”.
For weeks now, the “Toda Max” lead star is rumored to reprise the role she once played when she was still with the GMA Network.
Angel said ABS-CBN has yet to announce who will play the role of Mars Ravelo’s famous comic character in the new series.
The actress attributed her slim figure to her healthy lifestyle.
“Hindi ko talaga naisip yun (diet because of Darna) kasi may ginagawa din akong pelikula. I feel great so ‘pag masaya ka, ‘pag okay lahat, lahat sumusunod na,” she said.
Although she hasn’t reached her ideal weight, Angel said she’s not starving herself and she’s comfortable with her eating and exercise routine.
“Gusto kong magsimula kumain ng healthy talaga. Dati kasi pinapapayat ka kaya medyo pressured ka, andyan yung kung ano-anong diet na yung ginagawa mo,” she said.
“Para sa akin hindi okay (yung ganun). Mas effective pag hindi mo ginugutom yung sarili mo at mas nakakapag function ka. Hindi ako pwedeng walang sustansya,” she added.
When asked about the “Darna” rumor, Angel is thankful and overwhelmed by the positive messages she received on social networking sites.
“Sobrang nakaka touch yung mga tao, nababasa ko sa Twitter, sa online na natatandaan nila ako sa ginawa ko, malaking bagay yun sa akin. Nakakalunod sa pagmamahal. Hindi man matuloy okay na ako dun. Bahala na talaga si God,” she said.
Angel is currently filming a new movie with Star Cinema opposite Dingdong Dantes. (MNS)
