AJ Raval on body shamers: “Wala naman akong pakialam sa kanila kasi masaya naman po ako sa ginagawa ko.”
AJ RAVAL – The actress has been a victim of body shaming because of her intimate scenes with Diego Loyzaga in Death of a Girlfriend.
During the virtual media conference of her upcoming movie, Taya, she was asked how she reacted after being body-shamed online.
AJ said that she was not surprised when she heard the question.
“Sa totoo lang po, wala naman akong pakialam sa kanila kasi masaya naman po ako sa ginagawa ko. Saka sa body shaming, never ako na nag-body shame. Alam ko pong tingnan yung mga babae,” she said.
“For me, wala lang kung may stretch marks, kung may dark areas [sila]. Ganoon po ako mag-isip. Hindi ko po inilalagay ang sarili ko sa bashers. Unang-una, wala silang bilang sa ginagawa ko,” she added.
Meanwhile, Taya is a movie about online betting.
In real life, AJ has never tried gambling but she couldn’t stop herself from telling her own story about her ex-boyfriend who was hooked on gambling.
“Hindi po ako marunong magsugal pero meron akong naging boyfriend na nagsusugal, hanggang sa ako yung na-stress magbayad sa mga utang niya,” she said.
