The star of Milan reunited on Monday with her leading man, Piolo Pascual, for the premiere of the digitally restored version of their film. Papa P admitted that it was the first time they've gotten together since the movie, while Claudine expressed her openness to work with him again. "Sana [may Milan part two].

2. Cara Delevingne says the modeling industry made her "hate" herself

In an interview, supermodel-turned-actress Cara Delevingne admitted that she is "not doing fashion work anymore." Cara, who started modeling in 2011, said that the industry "didn't make [her] grow at all as a human being" and added, "It is a mental thing as well because if you hate yourself and your body and the way you look, it just gets worse and worse."


She also touched on the times she had to do sexually suggestive poses despite being a teenager, noting that she felt she couldn't say no to them because she was still new. "You start when you are really young and you get subjected to…not great stuff."
