Despite the many criticisms about her weight gain, Angel Locsin stated that she is not at all affected by the negativity.
As reported on ABS-CBN News, the actress, who sat down for an interview with Over a Glass or Two last week, stated that she doesn’t speak about her weight because there is nothing to say.
“That’s their opinion of me. It’s true that I’m fat, but that’s not the measure of myself. Better chubby than ugly,” she said. “If you’re not happy with me, well, I’m sorry to hear that. I’m still happy with myself and I know what I can bring to the table.”
Angel also stated that she loves herself enough to not care about other people’s comments.
“I respect myself because this body has gone through a lot. I have also achieved a lot and I still have a lot to achieve. Without this body, there is no Angel Locsin. I would not be here. I have no livelihood. So I am just really grateful,” she expressed.
As for her decision to lose weight, the actress stated that it was solely for her own health.
“It’s not really for vanity. Maybe it’s just a bonus, but what we’re after is health. Let’s take care of ourselves,” she added. It is noted that the weight gain was a result of the medication that Angel had to take for her back injury.
