Even as she took the top spot in the "100 Most Beautiful Faces 0f 2017" list, Liza Soberano wants to be recognised for something more.
The Filipino-American actress and one-half of the LizQuen love team admitted that she's not satisfied to be seen only as a pretty face.
"People always say that I'm just a beautiful face. So immediately, I knew what I wanted. I wanted to be recognised to be more than that," she said in her interview with talk show host Boy Abunda in "Tonight With Boy Abunda", which aired Monday.
She admitted that what she wanted in life is to make a name for herself. But to achieve this she said she knows she has to work hard in her TV projects and films.
"I have to work hard to show people that I'm more than what they see physically; that I'm talented, and that I care and have empathy for people," Soberano told Abunda. "Because eventually, the beauty will go away. I will age and I won't look the same as I do now and what legacy can I leave behind to everybody to make them remember me."
LIZA’S ADVICE TO JANELLA SALVADOR, JOSHUA GARCIA
Soberano, who has long been friends with fellow Kapamilya stars Janella Salvador and Julia Barretto, also expressed her care for them through some love advice.
For Salvador, Soberano said it is important to "love herself" first. She explained, "Dapat kumpletuhin muna niya yung sarili niya (She should complete herself first). She should make herself whole before she loves somebody." However, when asked about the real score between Salvador and Elmo Magalona, who are rumored to be a couple, Soberano said she does not know.
As for Barretto, Soberano told Abunda that her advice is actually for Barretto's love team partner Joshua Garcia. "'Wag masyadong strikto (Don't be too strict)," Soberano said with a smile. On the question of whether she approves of the actor for her friend Barretto, she said, "Whoever she's happy with, I'm happy with as well."
