Bea Alonzo unexpectedly discovered something about herself during her latest Palawan vacation.
In an interview with the King of Talk Boy Abunda last March 14, the talented actress shared the story behind her bikini photo that encouraged body positivity.
"Gusto kong i-post 'yung picture na naka two-piece ako pero it took me a while bago ko na-ipost," Bea said. "Siguro mga 100 times na tinanong ko 'yung brother ko, 'Maganda ba? Maganda ba?'"
She furthered, "And I thought, 'Oh my, god. Hindi pa pala ako free sa pakiramdam na ito. Akala ko at my age nakalaya na ako dun sa insecurities na 'yun. Process nga pala ito. You have to constantly remind yourself that you are beautiful. That you are enough."
From her realization, Bea took the chance to turn her insecurity into strength by posting her bikini photo to empower her fans and followers.
"Kahit na mataba ka, payat ka, you are beautiful. Na-inspire ako dun sa post ko at sana na-inspire din 'yung mga tao."
Catch Bea together with Charo Santos-Concio in Mikhail Red's suspense-thriller movie "Eerie" on March 27 in cinemas nationwide.
