Angel Locsin is known for being one of the nicest people you’d ever come across in show business.
The fact that she has established herself as one of the best dramatic actresses of her generation doesn’t make her less approachable.
She accommodates fans who ask for a photo op or an autograph.
She doesn’t give entertainment reporters a hard time during press interviews.
And she is certainly no diva when she’s at work.
Indeed, Angel epitomizes the positive disposition that Hapee toothpaste stands for.
But how does Angel maintain such an endearing quality amidst the challenges she faces every day?
1. She doesn’t sweat the small stuff.
True to the essence of being a Hapee ambassador, Angel keeps her cool despite her busy schedule.
As it is, she puts in long working hours especially when taping a teleserye or shooting a movie.
But she doesn’t use this as an excuse to be grumpy on the set.
On her Instagram post last October 8, Angel expressed her happiness after taping an episode for Maalaala Mo Kaya, which aired on October 12.
“Done with MMK Taping! 30hours awake but still smiling!ðŸ˜Š IâÂ¤ï¸ÂMMK! Sa Sabado na po ‘yan.”
2. She gets involved in productive activities.
It’s no secret that Angel has been consistently doing volunteer work for the Philippine National Red Cross for more than four years now.
Oftentimes during typhoons, she is the first among her fellow celebrities to extend aid to typhoon victims.
After the onslaught of Ondoy in 2009, she even auctioned off most of her expensive designer bags, and donated the proceeds to Philippine Red Cross.
Aside from helping fellow Filipinos who are going through trying times, Angel also puts into practice Hapee’s proudly Pinoy qualities by promoting love for one’s country.
Last month, she posted on her Instagram a photo of Filipino books—which includes Teodoro Agoncillo’s Philippine History and Ricky Lee’s Trip To Quiapo— that she “hoarded” from a book store.
Yes, she also loves to read during her free time.
3. She surrounds herself with positive people.
Just like Hapee’s desire to cultivate a culture of smiles among Filipinos, Angel also believes in spreading good vibes all around.
Two months ago, she posted a quote about the value of maintaining a positive attitude in a collective manner on Instagram:
“If everyone gives in to feelings of hopelessness and becomes immobilized, there is no doubt that people of ill will and greed will control society. Though we strongly believe that this group is a small minority we also believe the individual actions of good men and women are critical to society's health.”
On a separate occasion, she tweeted the often-used maxim “laughter is the best medicine” and encouraged her Twitter followers to watch a comedy concert show.
