Everyone goes through the ‘awkward stage’ of puberty, or as mothers fondly call it, the ‘ugly duckling stage’. This is the period in every teenager’s life when acne seems to be their worst enemy and baby fats are not so baby-like. Braces come in different colors and drugstore cologne is all the rage. Fear not, however, because making it past this stage can be very rewarding. Even our favorite Kapamilya actresses went through such ‘awkwardness’ but grew up to become beautiful swans!
Here are some of this generation’s leading ladies before and after their ‘nene’ days:
1. Lois Andalio – the Pinoy Big Brother alumnus was only a teenager when she entered the famous house in 2013. While inside the PBB house, Loisa gained some weight which the viewers noticed and commented on. Now, Loisa could pass off as a model with her long brown hair and doll-like features!
2. Sofia Andres – Sofia first appeared on TV as Dindi Maghirang in “The Princess and I” in 2012. Five years later, the actress is now a leading lady in her very own TV series, “Pusong Ligaw”, which received very good reviews. Sofia also has a huge following on Instagram as a social media influencer and is known to have one of the most well-curated IG feeds today.
3. Sue Ramirez – sporting chubby cheeks and uneven teeth, Sue was given her first major role in 2011 as part of the “Mula sa Puso” cast. Now, she is one of the most sought-after leading ladies, receiving praises for her mature performance in “Hanggang Saan”
4. Elisse Joson – Elisse has been in the industry since 2012. The actress had long, black hair and white highlights when she was still starting, which made her look more like a rockstar. However, one could hardly recognize her now. Her beauty became viral when she appeared in McDo’s “Tuloy Pa Rin” commercial in 2016, and rose to fame when she joined Pinoy Big brother: Lucky Season 7 in the same year.
After going through their own ‘awkward’ stages, these ladies are now some of the most famous faces in the showbiz industry today.
