One of a kind

‘ONE OF’ – The list of Yes! Mag­a­zine’s 100 Most Beau­ti­ful Stars 2017 is out. Seven of those on the Yes! List may well be called “One of a Kind.” They were the only ones named in seven cat­e­gories.

Let’s get to know those oneof-a-kind stars.

IDOL – Tirso Cruz III, at 65 still go­ing strong. From Nora Aunor’s “con­sort” in the ‘70s, Pip be­came an award-win­ning ac­tor. A good fam­ily man and friend to all, he is truly an IDOL.

TV KING – Start­ing as an in­die ac­tor, Coco Martin turns undis­puted TV KING, thanks to “FPJ’s Ang Probin­syano,” which has been dom­i­nat­ing the rat­ings for the last two years.

Coco is di­rect­ing his first film for the De­cem­ber Metro Manila Film Fes­ti­val, “Ang Pan­day,” orig­i­nated by his idol, the one and only Fer­nando Poe Jr.

UN­BREAK­ABLE – Yes in­deed, Kris Aquino is UN­BREAK­ABLE. Her stay­ing power, abil­ity to hog the lime­light is re­mark­able. She is said to be in the cast of the Hol­ly­wood pic­ture “Crazy Rich Asians.”

COMIC GE­NIUS – Michael V. is one of the brains be­hind the lon­grun­ning gag show “Bub­ble Gang.” He also top­bills the sit­com “Pepito Manaloto.” When not busy writ­ing and dish­ing out jokes, Michael V. writes songs and paints.

QUEEN MOTHER – Karla Estrada the mother of mati­nee idol Daniel Padilla, earn­ing her the ti­tle QUEEN MOTHER. She’s loathe to ac­cept the “ti­tle,” but it stuck. But then Daniel is the reign­ing Teen King, jus­ti­fy­ing the QUEEN MOTHER tag.

IN A LEAGUE OF HIS OWN – That’s Vice Ganda who changed the land­scape of talk shows. Un­con­ven­tional, ir­rev­er­ent, at times haughty, but a con­sis­tent top drawer whether on TV, movie, or even con­cert. He told Yes! he wants to be re­mem­bered by his fans as, “Sim­ply as a per­son who makes them smile dur­ing the times they find it hard to do so.”

MU­SIC HERO – Prime mover of OPM (Orig­i­nal Pilipino Mu­sic). His own mu­sic tran­scends genre, de­mog­ra­phy, generation, plat­form. Ogie Al­casid is an au­then­tic MU­SIC HERO. And what a kind, gen­er­ous, and com­pas­sion­ate per­son.
