Bea Alonzo recently made the online world abuzz after she posted her bikini photo for the first time on Instagram. In her post, Bea said that she wants to inspire other women to love themselves more.
In an interview with Cinemanews, Bea said that she was happy with the positive feedback that her post received.
"Nakakatuwa na 'yung mga reactions ay positibo. Hindi siya tungkol sa pagpapakita ng skin eh. It's about being comfortable in your own body and your own skin. I also promote 'yun nga body positivity and to do it right," she said.
Bea admitted that growing up she used to feel insecure about her body.
"Kasi I was tagged as fat, nag-suffer ako don, malaki ang binago non sa personalidad ko. Kinwestyon ko ang sarili ko kung maganda ba ako o hindi. So ngayon it's time to give back. Ngayon it's time to know better. Gusto kong maging ehemplo sa mga kabataan who are going through the same thing," she said.
Recently, her boyfriend Gerald Anderson also gave his reaction to her post.
“Nakita niyo nakakagulat. Pati ako nagulat eh (laugh). But I think yung message niya dun sa pinost niya is just yung huwag tayong mahiya, huwag tayo ma-pressure or huwag tayo magpadala sa sasabihin ng ibang tao."
