While many of us are too conscious about how we’ll look in our selfies, there are some who are indeed blessed to still look good whatever they do with their faces—case in point: our gorgeous Kapamilya actresses. Whether they smile, pout, turn wacky or fierce, they never lose their gorgeousness.
Even if they weep or bawl over an intense scene onscreen.
In a Kapamilya poll, we asked the netizens who among the Kapamilya actresses is the most gorgeous even if they burst into tears oncam. Here are the top ten “crying beauties” named by netizens on the ABS-CBN Facebook page.
- Kathryn Bernardo
One name was given by the most respondents: Kathryn Bernardo.
Before she was hailed as the Teen Queen, Kathryn gripped us with dramatic roles in teleseryes she starred in at a very young age. But her most remarkable performances were as the young Victoria (Gretchen Barretto) in the fashion drama series Magkaribal and as Mara in the 2010 incarnation of Mara Clara. Since then, Kathryn became one of the most sought-after actresses of her generation and has top-billed high-rating TV shows and blockbuster movies, not to mention being part of one of the most successful and enduring love teams with Daniel Padilla.
No matter how much she breaks down onscreen, especially in such heavy dramas as Pangako Sa ‘Yo, or her upcoming lead role in the action fantasy series La Luna Sangre, Kathryn never loses that natural beauty we all admire.
- Liza Soberano
Liza Soberano, meanwhile, reached second place with her entrancing beauty even as dramatic scenes made her cry a river.
This she revealed to us in her breakout portrayals in Forevermore and Dolce Amore. Since then, she’s been proving to us that she has not only a pretty face but also an incredible dramatic actress, as well. Who would forget her remarkable “Pangit ba ako? Kapalit-palit ba ako?” scene in the movie My Ex and Whys and her recent stint portraying 2015 Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach in the MMK episode “Korona”? Surely, her upcoming, high-flying role as the next Darna is much anticipated!
- Nadine Lustre
From tweetums to mature roles, name it; our third placer Nadine Lustre can effectively portray it! But when she delivers lines with intense emotion, Nadine never loses her allure.
Her transfer to the Kapamilya network in 2014 opened doors for her to portray fulfilling dramatic roles. Her heartbreaking scenes with her real-life sweetheart James Reid in On the Wings of Love and Till I Met You were unforgettable.
- Angel Locsin
Angel is illustrious and accomplished as an actress. Who can forget those powerful dramatic scenes she topbilled, especially The Legal Wife, as she wept and wailed but her incredible beauty still prevailed.
Just like the Darna that she was and the Lyka and Lia she became in Lobo, Imortal and currently in La Luna Sangre, her intensity as an actress will remain as formidable as ever, with her gorgeousness and sexiness never fading away.
- Julia Montes
Julia Montes has grown into a very impressive young actress. She gained recognition as Clara del Valle in the 2011 remake of Mara Clara alongside Kathryn Bernardo. Her tearful dramatic scenes in this breakthrough teleserye revealed her impressive acting chops yet never sacrificed her astonishing beauty.
Since then, Julia was bestowed more shows and films, mostly drama-themed, through which she received innumerable citations and nominations from various award-giving bodies. After playing antagonistic and maternal roles in some of her projects, she is now considered as one of the multi-faceted actresses of this generation, especially in her milestone drama Doble Kara.
- Kim Chiu
When Kim Chiu cries on-screen, it’s like everyone is devastated as well. We identify with the simple lass as she emerges from one difficult dramatic encounter after another, with the hurt expressed in the tears that flow in her eyes. Yet, she remains that Chinese cutie ng Cebu we all hailed as the Grand Winner in PBB Teen Edition.
Her dramas from Sana Maulit Muli over 10 years ago to her current teleserye Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin showcase her innate dramatic talent.
- Erich Gonzales
Erich Gonzales always has the knack of staying beautiful even if the most hurtful ordeals come, especially when she portrays a character we all resonate with.
We all saw that in Magkaribal, Maria del Barrio, Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang, Suddenly It’s Magic, and Juan dela Cruz to name a few. Her versatility was further tested when she played as the second wife in the Pinoy adaptation of the Korean hit series Two Wives alongside Kaye Abad and Jason Abalos. But, it was her heartwarming role in Be My Lady opposite ex-flame Daniel Matsunaga that truly brought her close to our hearts, especially in those forceful dramatic scenes.
- Maja Salvador
Maja Salvador has proven through the years her versatility as an actress, crying her heart out in deplorable scenes yet maintaining her astonishing beauty. Since her take off to stardom in 2003, Maja has been given numerous commendations from various award-giving bodies. From all the roles she played, she is highly remarkable in Nagsimula Sa Puso, Thelma, The Legal Wife, Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin, Bridges of Love, and One More Chance. Now, we applaud her scintillating performance in the revenge drama primetime series Wildflower.
- Loisa Andalio
Loisa Andalio wins our hearts with her charm and exuberance. But her remarkable acting made her even more admirable. And she showcases it while she takes our breath away with her beauty. We know her as a good singer and dancer inside the house, but she wowed us in her acting brilliance when she co-starred in her first-ever soap opera Nasaan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita with notable actors Vina Morales, Denise Laurel, Christian Vasquez, Jane Oineza and Joshua Garcia. She also appeared in episodes of Ipaglaban Mo and Maalaala Mo Kaya.
- Barbie Imperial
We are all thrilled to witness the journey of that “Doll Along the Riles ng Albay” in PBB to being one of the most enthralling beauties on television. Barbie Imperial wows us with her acting, particularly her stirring performance in the MMK episode “Riles” depicting her life story. She also appeared in TV dramas wherein she is oppressed, abused or even mercilessly killed, but despite this, her beauty knows no bounds and she still captivates us. Definitely, she is a spellbinding actress to watch out for in the years to come.
