MANILA – Iza Calzado has begun her self-love journey and one of the steps she has taken is to embrace her flaws.
Posting an unedited photo of her wearing a two-piece bikini on Instagram, Calzado revealed that her body has gone through so many changes and as a result, she has stretch marks, loose skin, scars and cellulite.
Despite this, the actress said: “I no longer want to hide these behind digitally distorted images because, truth be told, this reduces the pressure of trying to look perfect in every picture.”
Calzado’s post earned positive response not just from her supporters but from her friends within the entertainment industry as well.
Isabelle Daza, Bela Padilla and Dani Barretto reminded Calzado that she looks beautiful no matter what.
Ryan Agoncillo and director Antoinette Jadaone, for their part, left emojis on Calzado’s post as they agreed with the actress.
Nonetheless, Calzado said in jest that she will continue to use to her advantage the “lighting, shadows and angle” as she does not consider them included in digital distortion.
