Angel Locsin does not deny that she's once again gaining weight.
In fact, when we were having a hard time asking her directly about this issue, Angel candidly asked, "Na ano? Lumulusog ako?"
Then she went on to explain, "Tanggap ko naman 'yon, e. Pero bigyan niyo naman ako ng chance na magbawas [ng timbang]. Medyo malaki na 'yong bawas ko kasi may workout."
Angel pointed out stress from work as one of the reasons she binges on food. She was glad though that she was given a break because she could have more time to exercise.
"Pasalamat ako na may break ako kasi nakapag-workout ako, hindi ako masyadong puyat, hindi ako masyadong kumakain. Kumakain ako pero hindi ako 'yong kaing pagod galing segue," says Angel who once did pole dancing and is now into "insanity workout."
Unlike other celebrities, the 25-year-old actress believes that being healthy does not necessarily mean being thin.
She added, "Well, sa akin naman it's not an issue. Ang importante sa akin 'yong health.
"Huwag niyo naman sabihin na pangit kasi, ang dami kong kakilalang medyo healthy pero napakaganda naman ng ugali, napakaganda naman ng hitsura. Aminin naman natin, hindi naman tayong lahat kapayatan, di ba?"
For someone who is into active sports, Angel would rather be "healthy" than skinny.
"Hindi naman kasi ako nanininwala sa sobrang payat, na hindi na kumakain. Hindi na healthy 'yon. Mas gusto ko 'yong kapani-paniwala na nakakabuhat ako ng lalaki. 'Yon naman ang character ko. Siguro, humealthy lang ako," said Angel.
Although unnecessary, the former FHM Sexiest Pinay still gave her apologies to her fans who get disappointed about her weight gain.
"I apologize sa mga hindi ko na-fulfill ang expectations and all. Pero, ito naman, ginagawan ko naman po ng paraan. I feel naman na I'm very healthy. Wala naman akong sakit."
She also assured fans that she would get back to her ideal shape. She reiterated "Ginagawan ng paraan."
