Being a celebrity isn’t easy as it comes with having both fans and haters.
Kris Bernal has had more than her usual share of critics over her decision to bare some skin publicly.
“Well, ngayon I’m starting to block them, and at the same time I’m turning off the kasi sometimes it’s too harsh eh,” she said.
The 28-year-old actress related how painful it is for her that some people just won’t stop harping on her thinness.
“Sabi ko nga, kayo kaya ’yung lumagay sa posisyon ko. What if ganito lang ’yung built ninyo na no matter how much you eat talagang hindi ka lumalaki, ganu’n ka lang talaga. Anong mararamdaman mo if may magsabi sayo ng mga ganu’ng kasasakit na words?
“Parang sa akin lang, ibalik niyo sa sarili niyo kung gaano kasasakit ’yun. And hindi lang sa sarili mo kun’di kung gaano rin masasaktan ang family mo kung naririnig nila ’yung ganu’ng words from other people.”
The matter became worse with Kris recently posing for a men’s magazine. Some people have insinuated she couldn’t have achieved the figure the natural way.
“Pinaghirapan ko ’yun eh. As in I was only given a week to prepare and siyempre first time ko mag-sexy photo shoot so hindi ko alam kung magda-diet ba ako…
“I mean, pinaghandaan ko ’yun ta’s biglang makikita mo na ganu’n ’yung mga feedback ng mga tao though siyempre ’yung mga sinasabi nila, alam ko naman ’yung iba concern lang din. Pero kasi hindi nila ako nakikita everyday kung paano ako kumain, mag-exercise, na hindi naman ako nagbabawas, ’yung ganu’n,” she elaborated.
She revealed the situation made her a little emotional.
“Masakit lang siyempre na ayaw ng tao ’yung mga ginagawa mo. ’Yung improvement na ginagawa mo sa sarili mo ay hindi gusto ng iba,” she said. “Nasasaktan lang po talaga ako ’pag gusto mong mag-improve, gusto mong may makitang bago ’yung mga tao, na makita nila na kaya mong gawin ’yung ibang bagay pero iba ’yung dating sa kanila.”
Kris confessed it got her thinking twice about widening her horizons.
“Sabi ko, ‘Du’n na lang kaya ako sa parang dati na ganito lang ’yung ginagawa kong roles. Or talaga bang mag-level up na ako, na magpa-sexy na ako, pero ’di sobrang sexy, parang mag-mature na ako.’”
In the end, she decided to scoff at the criticisms if it means celebrating her decision.
“Parang I wanted to do something not really daring but something that would match my age as a 28-year-old woman.”
To those who mock her for not placing in the magazine’s top 10 beauties (at least as of this writing), Kris said ranking was far from her mind when she posed.
She already made clear the magazine venture is not about her readying to take on more daring roles.
“Siguro little cleavage okay lang pero ’yung full (hubad), hindi kaya,” she maintained. “I wanna keep a bit of my sweet image pero siyempre naglalabas din ako ng iba kong side.”
Kris will further prove her versatility as actress taking on a dual role on “Impostora.”
The Kapuso series is about Nimfa, a street vendor who willingly undergoes facial reconstruction to become Rosette, a wealthy and beautiful but unhappily married wife seeking to escape her husband.
Kris shared wearing prosthetic is the most challenging part in performing the role.
“Kasi nilalagay siya then tinatatanggal after two hours,” she said.
“Like in a day, parang ilalagay, tatanggalin, ilalagay, tatanggalin, tapos blank makeup ta’s naka makeup, sobrang hirap.”
She took on the role to please fans, inasmuch as “gusto ko lang makita nila na pwede rin si Kris sa roles na ganito. Na pwedeng maging kabit, or kontrabida. Kasi parang nalilimitahan ako na palagi akong bata. Nakaka-bore na rin eh, alam mo ’yun, paulit-ulit.”
So how was it playing bad guy, we asked.
“Mas napaglalaruan ko. Sanay na kasi ako sa roles na lagi ako mabait, lagi ako inaapi, so parang itong salbahe parang lahat bago sa akin, ’yung pagbato ng linya, pagiging salbahe sa ibang ka-eksena ko,” she said.
In an effort to make her mark, Kris didn’t watch the original version of the series.
“May tendency kasi na baka gayahin ko ’yung before,” she explained. “I want my own acting and my own attack, parang ganu’n. Tsaka siyempre iba rin ’yung understanding ko ng characters.”
The series will premiere soon on the GMA Afternoon Prime block. (With report from Jojo P. Panaligan)
