The only constant in this world is, Change.
Celebrities have their own unique ways of becoming popular. Some achieve this through honing their craft in acting, singing or comedy. Others make their presence felt through the personality they project on the screen.
However, there are some of them who invest in their bodies. These stars would normally wear skimpy clothes and accept daring roles to easily gain attention.
Kim Domingo recently expressed her gratitude to her fans their love and support now that she’s slowly changing her image in showbiz.
The 24-year-old Kapuso actress first rose to prominence after her seductive dance of the hit song Twerk It Like Miley back in 2014.
Her instant fame was immediately followed by several projects which many would say capitalized her physical assets. There was even a time that Kim became a cover girl of a popular men’s magazine twice, 2015 and 2017.
But she soon decided to shy away from such images and roles after working in the showbizness for several years. Kim told her decision to completely transform from just mere eye candy to a real actress.
In a heartfelt post, she gave her thanks for the “real” fans who continue to support her despite the big shift in the direction of her career.
“Una sa lahat gusto kong magpasalamat sa mga biyayang natanggap ko nung 2019.
“Yung mga biyaya na mas madami pa sa inaasahan ko.
“Gusto ko din mag thank you sa mga taong hanggang ngayon sumusuporta sakin, nagmamahal.
“Kahit medyo nagbalot-balot nako andyan pa din. [grinning face with one large and one small eye emoji]
“Kayo ang patunay na hindi pisikal ang inyong minahal sa akin kundi kung ano talaga ako.”
She also expressed her two cents on the idea of how it feels to be “respected”.
“Ganito pala ang pakiramdam kapag mas madami na ang taong rumirespeto kesa bumabastos sayo.”
Prior to changing her overall image, Kim said that she already thought of the risk that may come along with her decision.
Many had said that there’s a big possibility that Domingo might lose a number of fans once she stops doing daring roles. In the end, the actress stood firm in her commitment.
“Actually, naisip ko na rin ‘yan,” Kumbaga, ni-ready ko na rin yung sarili ko”
“Dumating man yung panahon na yung [mga ginagawa ko] unti nang mawawala at the end, naging masaya ako sa desisyon ko.”
“Yun ang importante na masaya ka sa ginagawa mo, masaya ka sa buhay mo.”
Once, Kim said she wanted to be known as a drama actress. Now, Kim is pursuing her dream.
Way to go Kim!
