Liza Soberano's dad hopes she'll join Binibining Pilipinas
Future Miss Universe?
(SPOT.ph) Could Liza Soberano be the next celebrity to hit the Binibining Pilipinas runway? Maybe, if her dad has anything say about it.
In an interview on ABS-CBN's morning show Magandang Buhay, the teen actress' father expressed hope that she would join the pageant. "Sana makatungtong ka sa Binibining Pilipinas one of these days. That's my wish," he said.
Soberano admitted that it was her family's "dream" for her to be a beauty queen and added that she was open to the possibility, saying, "Hindi ko po alam... Kung para sa akin talaga, eh 'di [sige]."
In a separate and recent interview, the actress admitted that she gets "hurt" when people focus too much on her looks instead of her talent. "There are times na kunwari nagpe-perform na ako, I know I'm not the best dancer out there. But then I feel down about what I did during the production, lalapit sila sa akin and say, 'OK lang 'yan, maganda ka naman," she explained. "Sometimes it gets to a point that it starts hurting me na kasi 'yon na lang ang pinapansin and I try so hard to prove that I'm not just that. But still they can't see past that."
Soberano is currently starring in the Star Cinema romance, My Ex and Whys alongside her love-team partner, Enrique Gil. Directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, the film hits theaters February 15.
