Angel Locsin admits she needs to get back in shape


Angel Locsin wasn'rsquo;t offended when, at the press conference for the new season of her teleserye Imortal, reporters observed that she seemed to have gained weight. She said, "Na ano? Lumulusog ako? Tanggap ko naman 'yun."

But Angel assured the public that she is continuously doing her best to get back into shape. "Pagbigyan niyo naman ako ng time para magbawas, ha ha ha! Ngayon medyo malaki na 'lsquo;yung nabawas sa akin dahil sa workout. Nagpapasalamat talaga ako na may break time ako kaya nakakapag workout ako. Ngayon din hindi na ako masyadong puyat. Proper diet din ako. Hindi rin kasi ako naniniwala sa mga sobrang payat kasi hindi na kumakain. Hindi na yata healthy 'lsquo;yun."

The positive side of having a big built at the moment, according to Angel, is that it fits her character in Imortal as a she-wolf warrior. "Okay na rin siguro kasi sa character ko naman. Para kapanipaniwala na nakakaupak ako ng lalaki."

Nevertheless, Angel, who is hailed as one of the sexiest female celebrities in the country, apologized to those who are disappointed by her weight issue. "Humealthy nga ako ng konti kaya I apologize kung hindi ko na meet 'lsquo;yung mga expectations. Ginagawan ko naman po ng paraan. I feel that I'rsquo;m very healthy naman, wala akong sakit." Angel shared that she is currently in a program called "insanity workout."

The 25-year-old actress is hoping that people will not put so much importance on having a slender body as the true gauge of beauty. "Huwag niyo naman sabihin na pangit kasi, ang dami kong kakilalang medyo healthy pero napakaganda naman ng ugali, napakaganda naman ng hitsura. Aminin naman
natin, hindi naman tayong lahat kapayatan, 'lsquo;di ba?
"

Despite the weight issue, Angel found something else to be proud about, and that is for currently placing third in the nomination race for the third Shorty Awards. This international body "honors the best people and organizations on Twitter and social media." Angel is a very active user of the social networking site Twitter, which is now a cheap but effective tool for celebrities to reach out to their fans worldwide.

"Nagpapasalamat ako kasi I have the best followers. Sila talaga kasi 'lsquo;yung bumuboto, wala akong idea. Siguro dahil naniniwala talaga sila sa akin. Nakakatuwa kasi 'lsquo;yung ibang nominees mga taga ibang bansa at ako lang ang Pilipino," said Angel.
