Popular actress Angel Locsin said Tuesday that Marian Rivera is a “good choice” as popular TV and movie heroine “Darna,” a role she herself once played when she was still with GMA-7 Network.
Locsin, in an email interview, said she is not concerned about comparisons between her and Rivera’s portrayal of the Mars Ravelo character, saying she is secure and happy with her own career.
The actress is the female lead of ABS-CBN’s remake of the Korean soap opera “Only You,” opposite actors Sam Milby and Diether Ocampo.
She did caution Rivera to make sure that her underarms will be in their best condition once she dons the sexy costume.
“I suggest she use Rexona. And she should undergo laser treatment by Facial Care Center. Hihihi!” Locsin said.
Locsin’s email to Good Times Manila is reproduced in full below:
“There is no problem naman po with her playing Darna. SHE’S a good actress and a good choice for Darna. So there’s NOTHING wrong with it po. BUT I suggest she use Rexona. And she should undergo A laser treatment by Facial Care Center. Hihihi! There’s no problem naman po if you’re the first or SECOND or third choice for a role, basta you perform it well. Hindi naman po mahalaga kung mag-RATE ba o hindi ang series, as long as you do your best po and you’re secure with your career. We’re all TRYING HARD our best po to be good actors. Kaya wala po talagang makapagsasabi na Marian Rivera is just a COPYCAT. Thank you po.”
Reached for comment, Rivera replied, via a text message:
“leche sya! maputi pa ang singit ko sa kili-kili nya! at anong copycat copycat, e sya nga ang mukhang pusang gala. tarantado kang reporter ka, wag mo nga akong istorbohin sa text.”
