Andrea Brillantes has decided to shrug off bashers, believing that she cannot please everyone.
“Okay lang kasi unang una, hindi mo talaga ma-pi-please lahat ng tao. Hindi lahat magugustuhan ka dahil lahat tayo mayroon sari-sariling opinion, iba ‘yung pananaw natin, iba ‘yung iniisip natin, iba ‘yung mga type natin na mga tao so okay lang sa’kin kung ayaw niyo ko, okay lang. Kung mahal niyo ko, mahal ko kayo. Okay lang din dahil nandito ako para magtrabaho, mas mapagaling ‘yung sarili ko and minsan, kunwari may hater, hindi ko na lang siya pinapansin. Okay lang sa ’kin,” she said, adding that she would also tell her mom to not mind her bashers as nothing good comes out of hating.
What was the kind of bashing that has affected her the most?
“’Pag dinadamay ‘yung mga family ko. Okay lang po ako pero ‘wag pong dinadamay ‘yung mga family kasi iba na ‘yan eh, kasi mahal ko sila,” she answered.
When asked where she gets this kind of maturity, Andrea owes it to starting young, at seven years old, in the business. “Iba po talaga ‘yung nadudulot ng pagiging artista kasi mas magiging matured ka, mas madami kang mapapagdaanan, madaming magrereject sa’yo, madami kang gagawin na ganyan para lang magawa ‘yun,” the 13-year-old actress said. Andrea also mentioned that she is her family’s breadwinner.
She also shared wanting to tackle dealing with bashers on her own YouTube channel and react to negative comments about her a la Jimmy Kimmel’s Mean Tweets edition.
