Pinay Chloe Grace Moretz lookalike feels overwhelmed by her overnight fame

In an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN News, she recalled that her customer took a photo of her but posted a stolen photo instead. The Facebook post by Jesse Carls instantly became a trending topic online. Edcell only learned about her instant fame when netizens started to add her on Facebook.

Even though she has a resemblance to Chloe, she wasn’t an avid fan at first. "Mula po noong dumami na ang nagsabi sa akin na kamukha ko siya, tinignan ko siya sa Internet. Then pinanood ko na po 'yong mga movies niya," she said. Chloe herself admitted that they do look alike.

Edcell couldn’t help but to gush over Chloe’s tweet.

"Siya nga din po mismo nagulat. Nakaka-proud po kasi napansin niya po tayong mga Pilipino. Maski po siya nag-agree na we do look very alike. Nakakatuwa po, nakakakilig.” Edcell, who is their family’s breadwinner, is taking up Early Childhood Education major at the City of Malabon University. She plans on teaching soon. "Gusto ko pong magturo talaga. Gusto ko ng mga bata, gusto ko lang kasama sila. Gusto kong naririnig 'yong mga bata na nagsasabing 'teacher, teacher.'"
