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.
“Anne Curtis, Angel Locsin, And Marian Rivera: Battle of the Cutest Throwback Photos,” read the caption of the collage.
Curtis, or Anne Curtis-Smith-Heussaff in real life, started her acting career in 1997; playing the role of Princess Dahlia in the movie “Magic Kingdom”.
She got her first acting award in 2008 for her role in the movie “Baler”; taking home the Metro Manila Film Festival Award for Best Actress.
Some of her recent projects were the film Aurora, Buybust, and Sid and Aya (Not a Love Story); and the television programs Ang Probinsyano, Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw, and 100 Days to Heaven.
Locsin, born Angelica Locsin Colmenares, started in 2002 at the second season of the teen-oriented series “Click”.
