Kathryn Bernardo shared her experience posing for the cover of the March 2022 issue of Preview Magazine.
In an interview with Star Magic Inside News, Kathryn relayed that it was a worthwhile experience.
"My experience, well hindi joke kasi ang tagal kong hindi nag-cover and we really wanted to make it special so we travelled for five hours para makapunta dito sa La Union and it's really worth it. Nakisama 'yung sunset and all the layouts, [we're] really happy," she said.
The actress shared that posing for the magazine cover is part of her birthday celebration.
"Excited lang ako kasi this will be part of my birthday celebration as I turn 26 and first time ko na mag-shoot ng medyo sexy, medyo woman na, something new and ayon I think ang ganda lang lahat ng nangyari 'yun, kasi the weather, the theme naging maayos. So I'm really excited for you guys to see it," she said.
As she turned a year older, Kathryn was also asked about her birthday wish.
"Sobra lang siguro akong grateful sa lahat ng nangyayari and sa mga taong nakapaligid sa akin so siguro 'yung wish ko is sana magtuluy-tuloy na 'yung mga taong nakapaligid sa akin, alam mo iyon, 'yung totoo and mga tao na malalapitan ko in good and bad times," she stated.
She also wished for great health for her and her family.
"Of course more than anything 'yung health ko and ng family ko. I hope maging maayos na ang lahat and sana maging maganda lang 'yung energy, yung good energy ma-protect ko 'yun throughout the year in the coming years. That's very important. 'Yun ang natutunan ko na at the end of the day, you have to be happy emotionally and dapat 'yun na-aaffect kasi lahat so I want to protect that energy," she stated.
Kathryn turned 26 on March 26. In her birthday post, Kathryn put the spotlight on her journey towards the person that she has become today.
"As I turn 26, I celebrate everything that made me who I am today. I celebrate my body, which I’ve learned to fully embrace in my journey to self-love. I celebrate the people who helped me grow—those who love me and continue to make life worth living, and those who don't but continue to make me stronger and more resilient. I celebrate courage, being vulnerable, and the choice to stand up no matter what life throws at me. I celebrate joy, finding happiness in the simplest things, and laughing at the silliest jokes. I celebrate the challenges and struggles that ultimately shaped me to become a better person. And lastly, I celebrate my voice, being able to stand up for the things i believe in and speak up for myself unfiltered," she wrote on Instagram on her birthday.
"I celebrate who I was, who I am, and who I will be years from now. I'm still a looong way from becoming the person I want to be, but I want to thank you (yes, you!) for being with me every step of the way. Cheers to another chapter together! 🍾🥂 I hope we continue to make this world a better place to live in," Kathryn added.
