Little sweethearts: Throwback photos of young Anne, Angel, and Marian

Actresses Anne Curtis, Angel Locsin, and Marian Rivera are three of the brightest stars that have been shining all over the Philippine entertainment industry for many years now — but they were once little sweethearts who did not have any idea how beautiful the future would be for them.

In the Facebook group Memories of Old Manila, a collage of Then and Now photos of Curtis, Locsin, and Rivera was uploaded by one of the members.
