Angel Locsin is aware of criticisms targeting her weight.
If you’ve been online this past day, you’ve probably seen the photos circulating on social media showing Angel Locsin’s “new figure.”
But little did you know what is the main reason behind her weight gain?
Locsin opened up about her spine injury which she first revealed in a 2015 interview.
She said her condition has improved, but the journey has been a difficult one.
“I think better na siya. Hindi naman siya mawawala. Mag-i-improve lang condition. Pero iyon na siya for life,” said Locsin, who had to withdraw from the superhero flick “Darna” due to the injury.
While she has mostly recovered, Locsin has had to adjust to physical limitations.
“Noong bumalik ako ng workout, umiyak ako, eh. Naramdaman ko ‘yung mga hindi ko na puwedeng gawin. Dati kasi feeling mo superhero ka talaga, kaya mong gawin lahat,” she explained, providing as examples sudden standing, twisting, running, jumping, and bending.
“Kailangan mong harapin na iba na. Hangga’t hindi mo natatanggap ‘yon, hindi ka mag-mo-move forward kasi, eh,” she said.
Angel suffered from a Disc Bulge spine, that is why she had to undergo some treatments and operations.
She had to take a lot of medicine for her maintenance and this is the main reason why she gains weight quickly.
Recently, Angel became a trending topic online when netizens noticed her new figure.
Netizens have various reactions when viral photos of Angel circulated on social media because of the obvious weight that she gained.
Angel’s photo showed a different body figure than what she was known before. Despite her weight gain, many stressed that she is still beautiful.
Whatever her figure, the actress still continues to do what she loves and what inspires other people.
