Kylie Padilla has been inspiring women to not be afraid of trying new things.

Aside from being an actress, the 26-year-old Kapuso is also a painter, makeup artist, and Muay Thai practitioner, among many others.

She is also a wife to Aljur Abrenica and a mom to Alas.

But Kylie also has a role model of her own: Angel Locsin.

The 26-year-old star revealed some of the things she admires about Angel during a quick chat after her pocket press conference for TODA One I Love on Thursday, March 7, at Limbaga 77 restaurant in Quezon City.

"She's just everything, di ba?" Kylie told PEP.ph (Philipine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the press.

She continued, "She has a heart. Sobrang dami niyang tinutulungang tao.

"She also advocates for strong women. She doesn't necessarily show how sexy she is, ganun. So I really admire her."

Like Angel, Kylie is also into women empowerment, and is passionate about portraying strong female characters on television.

In the Kapuso network's prime-time series TODA One I Love, she will play Gelay, whom Kylie described as "a women empowerment advocate."

She enthused, "Makikita mo yan lalo sa mga episodes na darating.

"She really vocalizes it na ang babae hindi lang puro katawan niya, hindi lang puro ganda.

"Gusto ko makita yun ng mga babae sa show namin."

This year's theme for International Women's Month celebration is #BalanceForBetter, which aims for a gender-balanced society.

The daughter of Robin Padilla said she's glad that the society has evolved as far as equality among men and women is concerned.

"When I was really young, when I was like a teenager, nilalaban ko talaga na I was a strong feminist.

"But siyempre nag-mature na ako, I just want everything to be equal and what's fair to both sexes.

"Gusto ko lang yung fair for both kasi... Ayoko naman na super unfair yung isa.
