Power couple Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil had fun catching up with fans as they talk about their quarantine-born business, advocacies for Save the Children Philippines, Dolce Amore rerun, and more in the latest episode of Kapamilya Chat. Plus, Liza finally speaks up about the possibility of joining Miss Universe!
Liza reacted to a recent social media post claiming she’s ready to join the Miss Universe pageant after Rabiya Mateo’s recent attempt to bring home the fifth crown for the Philippines. For years, there’s been a loud clamour for Liza to be a beauty queen.
The Kapamilya actress feels flattered hearing people’s encouraging words and expectations. But, to set things, straight, Liza said pageantry is not her thing. “I really don’t think it is for me because I get anxiety when I’m onstage. ASAP pa nga lang, sasayaw lang naman ako hindi naman ako magsasalita, grabe na ‘yung kaba ko. So, what more if it’s for Miss Universe? I just don’t think that I can give justice to everybody’s expectations.”
In 2017, Liza Soberano portrayed the life story of Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, an inspiring and empowered woman who brought pride to the country. Liza looked every bit a beauty queen as she starred in an MMK episode titled "Korona" detailing the hardships and challenges that Pia faced before bringing home the Miss Universe crown. Liza Soberano's amazing performance earned praises and convinced her fans even more that she can conquer the world of beauty pageants.
“Na-experience ko ‘yung training at grabe ‘yung taas ng heels na sinusuot nila. Hindi ako sanay sa high heels, so when I tried the high heels, I was tripping all the time. So malamang ‘pag sumali ako sa Miss Universe, madadapa din ako sa stage,” shared Liza. Enrique Gil believes Liza has what it takes. But the actress won’t give in to everybody’s persuasion especially after she experienced the struggles of a beauty queen.
For now, let's appreciate and be mesmerized by Liza Soberano's gorgeous looks in these throwback photos from her MMK episode.
