MANILA — A box-office superstar and one-half of the top love team of her generation, Kathryn Bernardo has become an aspirational figure to her millions of followers.
But the 23-year-old actress has also made it a point to welcome her fans into her personal life, most recently with the launch of her vlog which promises “no script, no fuss, no pretense.”
And it delivered just that, with a candid moment from her latest entry going viral over the weekend as it drew amusement on social media.
The 3-second clip sees Bernardo navigating an ice cave in Iceland. A slip causes her to curse out loud, triggering laughter from her long-time boyfriend Daniel Padilla, who was recording her.
On Twitter, the video already had some 112,000 likes and over 36,000 retweets as of Monday afternoon, with fans pointing out it was a rare look at Bernardo in an intimate setting, far from glamorous showbiz.
The clip was from the second part of Bernardo’s “We’re In Iceland” vlog with Padilla, which chronicles the couple’s outdoor adventures, from traversing the cave, whale-spotting, to visiting massive falls.
It also gives glimpses of their dynamic as a couple, with Padilla vocally supporting Bernardo in conquering her fears, and Bernardo having a childlike demeanor in her sweet interactions with her partner.
“Hope this video makes you feel closer to us somehow,” Bernardo wrote, referring to the vlog — which, going by its viral spread on Monday, has certainly achieved that mission.
