- She expressed how thankful she is for her resemblance to Toni
Actress and TV host Arianne Bautista’s resemblance to Toni Gonzaga has never gone unnoticed that they even worked in several projects together in the past, including being a body double.
The GMA artists revealed on her vlog on Youtube last May 2 that while many have been noticing her resemblance to the ABS-CBN actress, it is not known to many that they have actually met and worked together in the past, even before Bautista debuted on GMA.
“Ang tagal ko nang naririnig ‘yan, sobrang compliment yun for me,” Baustista said; answering a question from a supporter. “I super look up to her, sobrang idol ko rin siya. Sobrang nakaka-inspire siya as a person, as a mother, as an entertainer, as a host. Sobrang galing niya na kahit noong bata pa ako pinanonood ko rin siya mag-perform and yung mga movies niya very funny.”
She then said that she has met her and went on to reveal that they almost had a show in ABS-CBN.
“Before ako mag-start mag-GMA, nasa ABS muna ako, nag-workshop ako do’n. Doon ako nag-start. Meron talagang dapat na magiging show tapos dapat siya ‘yung magiging host. Nag-meet na talaga kami, nag-team building na kami together, so nung time na ‘yun ang bait bait lang niya, sobrang friendly tapos ang lambing,” she recalled.
Her resemblance to the popular actress-TV host has actually opened up opportunities for her as she even doubled for Gonzaga in commercials.
“Medyo nagkaka-advantage din sa ’kin na medyo hawig ko siya…Kasi kahit sa commercial, as in nagba-body double talaga ako sa kanya, e ‘di ba ang dami niyang endorsements no’n,” the Bubble Gang actress said.
“Saka hindi rin naman biro yung TF (talent fee) namin noon. ‘Pag double ka sa commercial, mataas ‘yung sweldo ranging from P50,000 pataas. Okay na din ‘di ba and I get to meet her all the time. Kaya actually, I’m thankful na rin,” she added.
