LOOK: A cute throwback photo of Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach

It's from her long-time friend, Pauleen Luna

(SPOT.ph) After over 40 years, the Miss Universe crown finally returns to the Philippines, thanks to the big win of former actress and beauty queen, Pia Wurtzbach. Her coronation was the subject of a lot of tweets, memes, and controversy (host Steve Harvey accidentally crowned Miss Colombia instead), but she received plenty of congratulatory messages, too.



One of them was from one of her long-time friends in showbiz, Pauleen Luna, who took to her Instagram account (above) to share a cute throwback photo from when they were barely teenagers. Pauleen shared how they both attended acting workshops in ABS-CBN, and how they used to buy lunch in MiniStop because they were trying to save money.


Prior to joining Bb. Pilipinas three times, she went by the name "Pia Romero" under Star Magic, and was part of teen-oriented shows like K2BU and Bora, as well as the 2006 drama show, Sa Piling Mo which starred Judy Ann Santos and Piolo Pascual. She also had several movie appearances, including All My Life in 2004 and All About Love in 2006.



Meanwhile, celebrities both on the local and international front showed their support for Pia via social media, including:


Tyra Banks


Chloe Moretz


Miriam Quiambao


Lea Salonga


Maine Mendoza
