Kris Bernal's bikini photos have been burning up the Internet.
Taken last March 13, 2017, in Pundaquit, Zambales, the 5'1" beauty stunned with her well-toned and proportioned bod in a two-piece swimsuit.
She wrote, "This is exactly the point in my life where I need to ditch the excuses and start being an adult."
On March 18, the actress revealed via Instagram her reason behind the beach pictorial.
"This isn't for any magazine cover, promotion, or endorsement.
"Just a play shoot with my extremely talented confidants.
"A random and an urgent invitation to the beach."
Though she's fond of posting photos of her abs on social media, Kris mentioned that people rarely see her in bikini.
"Maybe as I age I'm starting to be comfortable with how much skin a swimsuit shows.
"I've always been the timid one but what you should know is that I'm also straightforward.
"And at this moment in time, my inner freak is no longer lying dormant."
While most of her followers lauded her newfound confidence, there were some who reacted negatively.
To her bashers, the Starstruck survivor said, "Sometimes it's just the angle, the attitude, the swimsuit or the makeup that makes me look thin and small.
"People can see me.
"So they know how small and petite I am whether I'm in a swimsuit, or jeans. and a t-shirt.
"This is why I visit the gym.
"I'm not dying to have abs, instead, I'm focusing more on my hips and arms."
Kris actually looked stunning, but she referred to her bod as "not-so-perfect built."
Because of her petite frame, she's been accused of being an anorexic, where maintaining an appropriate body weight for height, age, and stature is difficult because of an eating disorder.
"I don't always love my body, it’s not my fault that I look like this, but for some ludicrous reason, strutting about in a bikini is just fine about my not-so-perfect built.
"I feel good about myself and focus on the fun and not on any body insecurities I might have."
