The old saying which goes, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” might be possibly true but a woman who gained weight while in a relationship could only prove one thing. She must have found love with the right person. Thus, the meme, “tumataba ang babae kapag nasa tamang lalake” became viral on Facebook as represented by actress Angel Locsin.
The streak of support from fans of the actress aka Darna continues as she shines on social media as a beacon of women empowerment for plus sized woman. See Real life ‘Darna’ Angel Locsin hailed for body positivity article.
Angel might not be in the form of the stereo-type Darna body for now but her show of confidence as she proudly embraced her new look brings body positivity to a whole new level, which inspired many Filipina women.
Facebook page Angel “Real Life Darna” Locsin celebrates the actress’ journey to body positivity and encourages visitors of the page not to look on the size or how gorgeous a woman is but rather see her inner beauty worthy to be loved and be treated like a real princess.
