Maine Mendoza, Kim Chiu, and Kathryn Bernardo share a candid moment at the Bench Under The Stars show. Netizens went gaga over this rare shot of their idols in one photo.


The Bench Under The Stars 30th anniversary fashion show rounded up the top celebrities from major networks in one epic runway spectacle.

It was also that one memorable night where fans got to see their favorite idols interact with another, regardless of their network loyalties.

But it wasn't just the stars who set their differences aside.

Inspired perhaps by their idols show of respect and reverence for each other, their legions of fans also did the same. 

One netizen pointed out, "[It is the] one night when fandom difference have been set aside…"

And that truth is best exemplified through this photo of Maine Mendoza, Kim Chiu, and Kathryn Bernardo sharing a moment together during the show's finale.

Everyone loved how the "royalties and queens of their own league" supported each other.

Maine Mendoza fans and Kathryn Bernardo fans also rejoiced and set aside their fandom wars for this prized photo of their two stars interacting.

A tweet read, "GRABE MAINE AND KATH IN ONE PICTURE AND WAIT THEY ARE BOTH LAUGHING! IDK TEKA SAYA KOOO!!"

Aside from that, Maine was also spotted having a cute moment with Julia Barretto during the finale as well!

A fan rejoiced, "JULIA AND MAINE!! OMG!!! MyLovesssssssss!!"

But perhaps the most interesting anecdote for the evening was how Maine had a moment with Kapuso-turned-Kapamilya star Richard Gutierrez on the runway.

GMA News reporter Nelson Canlas posted a throwback photo from almost a decade ago showing a very young Maine relishing her "fan moment" with an equally-younger Richard.

The post read, "After almost a decade may picture na uli Maine Mendoza na kasama si Richard Gutierrez, pero this time hindi bilang isang fan, kung di isang star na din!"
