GMA-7 actress Inah de Belen shares the limelight with her parents Janice de Belen and John Estrada in this year's list of YES! 100 Most Beautiful Stars.
Inah rocked an edgy-chic OOTD during the red carpet event held at Luxent Hotel in Quezon City last Tuesday, July 11.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), the newbie couldn't believe that she made it to the list of the magazine's Strong Starters category, along with other celebrities such as Gil Cuerva, Loisa Andalio, and many others.
The 23-year-old former Encantadia star admitted to feeling the pressure of living up to her famous parents' respective legacies, but then again, she tries to just think of it as a motivation to make herself better as an actress.
She told PEP, "Sobrang nakaka-pressure yun pero at the same time, I think yun yung nakaka-motivate sa amin para gawin namin yung best namin!"
In a text message coursed through Mark Sablan of GMA Artist Center, Inah also expressed how proud she is that both her parents are on the list as well.
The Kapuso talent said, "I am not surprised that they were included in the list. They have been in the list many times already. Haha!
"But to be included in the list with both of them is such an honor! Sayang lang na they weren't able to come to the event."
PROUD MOM. For her part, Janice is also elated to share the milestone with her daughter.
In a short exchange via Instagram, she told PEP, "I'm very thankful to be part of the list and I'm thankful that Inah is on the list as well."
The Destined To Be Yours actress has been listed on the magazine's Staying Power category along with Pepito Manaloto star Manilyn Reynes.
Janice talked about the importance of having the right attitude for an artist's longevity in the entertainment industry.
Nevertheless, Janice said she doesn't really give newbie actors unsolicited advice unless she's asked.
She told PEP in an e-mail exchange, "I usually don’t say anything unless asked, but during difficult scenes, and I see them struggling, I say something to encourage them.
"Most of the time, I don’t remember what I said."
In a separate Instagram post last Thursday, July 13, Janice expressed her gratitude to the magazine for having her on the list.
She wrote, "THANK YOU @yesmagazine FOR HAVING ME IN THIS ISSUE."
For his part, John shares the Hot Papas category, alongside Ian Veneracion and Gabby Concepcion.
