Cherie Gil surprised her fans when her shaved head was revealed on the latest cover of Mega Magazine.
On Friday, the magazine’s Instagram account shared a photo of the veteran actress leaning on her elbows in a white long-sleeved top and gold hoop earrings.
“Out with the old, in with the new, but this time, with even greater purpose. One of the most celebrated actresses in Philippine cinema, Cherie Gil shakes off her iconic villainess persona to start a new chapter of hope and positivity,” said the caption.
Cherie also posted a photo of the cover on her own Instagram.
“I didn’t think this would actually happen!! Being in NYC at the moment when I was asked to grace yet another Mega magazine cover. This time for their 30th anniversary edition,” she wrote.
She revealed on the cover story that after she got frustrated with her career at the height of the pandemic, she “sold everything and packed up” and moved to New York.
In starting over, Cherie said she got rid of everything, including the clothes “that symbolized a past life,” and even her hair.
“What’s hair diba? It grows back. It’s symbolic to my personal growth. When a woman is in distress, she cuts her hair,” she said. – RC, GMA News
