You never thought she’d wear a swimsuit, right? Did you know that she was a high school of her entire province?

2. Kris Aquino

Hand to neck pose from teenage years to middle age. Her ‘Queen of all Media’ habit is evident even in her early years.

3. Vice Ganda

From Vice Gwapo to Vice Ganda (this sentence is subjective though). Boy, he really loves his hair swept to one side.

4. Marian Rivera

I’ll just leave you with a quote from Mark Twain:

“Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”
