The perfect celeb for Kapamilya stars

While nobody is really perfect, some celebrities exude a certain kind of “perfection” in their auras, whether it be in respect of talent, looks, or personality. Even Kapamilya stars have local artists they would rate as perfect 10. Find out who they are in this exclusive feature!

Sylvia Sanchez believes the industry is blessed with actors that have ‘perfect’ talent including her constant co-stars Nonie Buencamino and Joey Marquez. She also mentioned John Lloyd Cruz, whom she was able to share a scene with, “Nakita ko siyang umarte nang talagang harapan. Ibang klase talaga ‘yon!”

She also thinks Sharon Cuneta has flawless thespic abilities, “Pinapalakpakan ko siya doon sa ‘Madrasta.’ ‘Pag ganyan talagang iyakan na, ‘pag puso na ‘yung pinapairal, magaling dun si Sharon.” Even Rommel Padilla, “’Pag seryosohan na ‘yung eksena, puso sa puso, sobra akong naho-hook sa kanya”

The “Misis Piggy”  lead star rated Joel Torre, Irma Adlwan, Shamaine Buencamino, Frances Makil, Nova Villa, Ces Quesda, Cherry Pie Picache, and Eula Valdes as ‘perfect 10’ actresses. On the younger generation, she lists down Denise Laurel, Angelica Panganiban, Jodi Sta Maria, and Viral Scandal star Dimples Romana.

Dimples is likewise the best Filipino celebrity for Charlie Dizon, “Kasi sa lahat ng eksena talaga, binibigay niya ‘yung best niya. Patunay naman ay ‘yung ang dami na niyang nagawa na projects na iba-iba ‘yung characters niya pero maganda lagi ‘yung kinalalabasan. Lagi po siyang nagbibigay as a co-actor, hindi lang sa set kundi pati sa labas. Hindi po siya madamot na artista. ‘Pag eksena mo, ibibigay din niya sa’yo at talagang hilig niya na i-pull up ‘yung mga nakakasama niya,” said Charlie of Dimples, who plays her mother in Viral Scandal series.

It’s a running joke among Viral Scandal cast that Maxene Magalona is the epitome of perfection because of her character Audrey Ramones. But on a serious note, they have local celebs to really look up to. For Ria Atayde, it’s her best friend Kathryn Bernardo, who is perfect not just as an artist but a person, “She’s helped me a lot especially in the celebrity aspect of this industry. She’s got her talent down, her humility down. And she’s got the person skills down.”

Kaila Estrada picked the always best dressed, always at the top of the world Heart Evangelista, “She’s life goals. She’s living the dream. I love her!”

For the bunch’s theater performer and singer Gian Magdangal, the choice is no other than Gary Valenciano, whose “Mr Pure Energy” tag still suits him to this day. “Talagang bata pa ako, iniidolo ko na siya sa lahat ng ginagawa niya. On- and off-screen, grabe si Sir Gary, lagpas pa ng ten!”

The vibe got a little nostalgic when Maxene talked why her father, the late Master Rapper Francis Magalona, is the perfect Filipino celebrity for her. “Kasi si Papa napakabait talaga, down-to-earth. He calls himself an iconic genius but at the same time, sa likod ng camera, he’s very, very simple, down to earth, very passionate. Artist talaga.”

Of course, her pops had flaws and hardships witnessed by the public. But for Maxene, he’s perfect in the way he handled life, “He never was perfect but he lived his life perfectly to the best that he could. He lived his life to the fullest. He gave his whole heart and soul to everything that he did. That’s why for me he’s the perfect Filipino celebrity.”

Francine Diaz would feel ‘kilig’ if she finds out that her first celebrity crush Marlo Mortel thinks she’s simply the best, “She’s smart. She’s beautiful. There’s nothing more na pwede pang ma-ask sa kanya. She has everything.” Marlo said they met once because she’s a big fan of the book “I Love You Since 1982” to which he personified the male lead character.

We couldn’t agree more with Hero Angeles when he said Liza Soberano’s beauty has of the highest, most perfect quality, “Especially sa mga photoshoots niya, parang any angle, kahit mga selfies at candid shots niya, parang walang mali. Parang sobrang perfect niya talaga!” Proof is she was hailed the ‘Most Beautiful Face’ an international movie critic.

Liza is also the ‘ultimate’ for Anji Salvacion. “Aside from her being so talented and being such a wonderful artist of ABS-CBN, napakita at napatuniyan niya na ‘yun, she’s really humble. And she has this beautiful heart which portrays not just the outer but her inner,” gushed the PBB Kumunity Season 10 celebrity housemate.

When it comes to performing and overall personality, Mackie Empuerto believes Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo is a tad above average, “Nasa kanya na po lahat - acting, singing, dancing, kaya niya pong gawin. Also, napaka-humble at bait.”

Members of the P-Pop group BINI have their individual picks. For Sheena, a 10-star rating belongs to It’s Showtime host Vhong Navarro, “He’s a performer and I like his personality. I like his work ethics. He’s very kind to us.” For Mikha, Robi Domingo, “Sobrang saya niya kasama at nakikita mo talaga na nag-eenjoy siya sa ginagawa niya.”

For BINI Gwen, Janella Salvador is the epitome of perfection for being good at acting and singing, and a super mom. Aiah went for Gary Valenciano, “Ang galing niya po not just as an artist but how he is with other people. He’s so kind.”

2 Good 2 Be True stars Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo are the most popular choices among the girls. Colet praised Daniel, dubbed as “Supreme Idol of this Generation,” for his humility and being a gentleman. “Parang hindi niya po iniisip na malaking artista talaga siya. Tine-treat niya ‘yug mga kapwa artista niya na equal.”

Meanwhile, BINI Stacey, Jhoanna, and Maloi thought of Kathryn Bernardo as a role model. They learn a lot form her be it work-wise or even hobbies. Maloi said she’s influenced by the Asia’s Superstar’s reading habit. Jhoanna watches behind-the-scenes of Kathryn’s projects where she hears nothing but good words from her directors and co-actors.

As for BGYO, their crushes are basically perfect. Mikki was all smiles talking about Darna: The TV Series’ lead star Jane De Leon, “Crush na crush ko po siya. Nung una ko po siyang nakita, parang na-attract po talaga ako sa kanya. Malakas ‘yung appeal niya.”

JL sounded like a true fan boy enumerating Kathryn Bernardo’s best qualities, “Parang lahat talaga nasa kanya – ‘yung visual, personality, at talent sa acting. At isa pa sa nakaka-attract sa kanya, ‘yung kulay niya kasi Pilipinang-pilipina.” Kathryn was also Nate’s top pick.

Another ‘It Girl’ captured the heart of a BGYO member. Liza Soberano was Akira’s first celebrity crush. Same goes for Gelo, but aside from Liza, he also thinks KZ Tangingan is a ‘perfect 10’ because of her talent.

For Sky Quizon, perfect is someone with strong morals like Bianca Gonzales, “I really admire her kasi more than her talent sa hosting, she’s really a nice person. And I admire her beliefs, values, and principles.”

Several factors determine the best celebrity. Singer Ford Valencia considers acting prowess, which he saw in John Lloyd Cruz, “Tuwing pinapanood ko siya sa mga movies niya, sobrang idol na idol ko siya umarte. Sobrang galing!”

Xyriel Manabat sees perfection in fellow ex-child stars Andrea Brillantes and The Broken Marriage Vow star Zaijian Jaranilla.
