This month, ESQUIRE presents the most influential funny woman (and men) of today: Maine Mendoza flanked by Eat Bulaga's Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola, and Paolo Ballesteros. We explain how a split-screen love story aroused a nation, broke global social media records, and beat Manny Pacquiao's ratings.
Inside, stories that show why middle age is the new 20s :
Sarge Lacuesta talks to Angel Aquino, a woman of a certain age (42) about growing up ugly, aging gracefully, and her favorite four letter word.
The Case for Fading Away: Kristine Fonacier finds out what happens to rock stars when they don't burn out.
The Midlife Hours: Essays on finally growing up.
And see what Asia's Best Female Chef 2016, Margarita Fores, has to say about nostalgic food, Italian mothers, and women in the kitchen.
All this and more, this month on ESQUIRE.
