In the mid-‘90s, Angelu De Leon’s onscreen partner was Bobby Andrews and their successful love team led to numerous movies and endorsements. Their popularity then is similar to the what is enjoyed by teen love teams today. During the Skechers Sandals spa party event, Angelu admitted she was glad she didn’t grow up in a world with social media around. “I’m very grateful. We love our fans but we’re very grateful we didn’t grow up in a world where you’re just a text away, you’re just a caption away, you’re just a reply away, you’re just a comment away. Because at the end of the day, it’s a difficult time,” she told PUSH.


Now a happily married wife and mother, Angelu said she actually admires younger stars like Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo for knowing how to deal with bashers online. “I sometimes feel sad for yung mga sina Kathniel when I read comments kasi sometimes parang tagos sa buto yung mga bashing, minsan iniisip ko how can people be so rude because they can hide [under] a different name and a different profile picture? How can someone like that be so angry sometimes? I admire the artist who doesn’t make patol kasi at the end of the day it’s really not your problem, it’s their problem. Sabi nga sa bible, ‘Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.’ So it shows so much of who you are the way you comment on social media,” she explained.


Angelu hopes people would be more responsible and considerate when they comment on celebrity accounts. “Alam naman natin, lahat naman tayo pakialamera eh. Alam mo yun? (laughs) One way or another lahat tayo pakialamera, lahat tayo may masasabi but having that control not to say what you think or whatever you thought of, parang yun yung importanteng magkaroon yung mga tao ngayon. Pero at the end of the day, alam naman namin na you can’t please everybody so kumbaga patapangan din minsan ng sikmura. Kaya minsan kahit na gusto mong i-enjoy ang social media, sometimes it really gets bothering and why would you want to put those things in your head pa?” she said.


During her love team days, Angelu shared how they interacted with their fans. “Dati snail mail ang meron kami (laughs), fan mails. Kinukuha namin sa Viva mga sako sako ng mails. So ganun tapos babasahin mo. Dati alam ko pa just to be so connected to the fans ang binibigay namin cardboard picture na may autograph namin. Yun yung pinapadala namin sa kanila so it’s very different kasi dati ang namba-bash lang sa amin ay press. Press people lang eh. So parang kahit papaano contained yung bashing sa amin,” she added.
