Matet de Leon has grown from a cute child star to showbiz industry’s Pambansang Best Friend due to the roles she often portrays in the series and movies she joins in. While others would feel bad and insecure of getting typecast with supporting roles, especially that of a sidekick, Matet says she is fulfilled and satisfied with the projects coming her way. She believes that the audiences are even amused with her trademark best friend character in the small and big screen.
In real life, Matet describes a true friend as a great listener and shows concern even through scolding and giving constructive criticisms. She considers her husband, Mickey Estrada, and siblings as her real-life best friends; and she keeps an honest and open communication with them even if it results to quarrel at times.
She and her siblings made a pact that they must organize a mini reunion at Lotlot’s house once a month. Talking about her husband, Mickey, The Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit star says they are not the kind of couple who gets too clingy all the time as they value each other’s privacy; theirs is just the right kind of balance of sweetness and personal space.
Matet never heard Mickey blurt out comments about her physical appearance especially her weight gain; and she sees it as a manifestation that Mickey’s love for her goes beyond the superficial attributes. After fifteen years of marriage, Matet and Mickey still remain strong as a couple and Matet thinks that going on constant dates help them maintain the fire in their relationship.
