Marian, Angel, Bea and Anne - they are the hottest female stars with somewhat the same stellar status. I gained this idea of having these four promising young actresses in a Square Off poll survey after Boy Abunda in SNN compared Bea Alonzo last night with her contemporaries Anne and Angel -- of course, Marian was not mentioned because she's from GMA. Let's admit, KC Concepcion and Sarah Geronimo have gone past their league because KC and Sarah have already proven their box office clout TWICE. Plus the fact that Sarah and KC could sing, while these four girls could not. This is why they have to rely on their acting skills and charisma alone, like Claudine and Judy Ann to attain superstardom. To put it bluntly, these four ladies are somewhat in the same footing with each other as to the "almost there" big star status -- but not quite.
Let me elaborate -- for example, Marian Rivera has had a string of number one prime time shows and commercial endorsements but her pull at the box office is still yet to be proven if the viewing public would pay real money to see her films. On the other hand, Bea Alonzo has not gone sexy, unlike the three other girls, but she already has one box office hit (One More Chance) under her belt. Anne Curtis has already one best actress trophy (Baler), yet she still also lacks the box office proof to make her at par with KC and Sarah. Lastly, Angel Locsin, like Marian, was the former Alpha Female of GMA before she left. Yet, the dismal performance of Love Me Again proves that she still needs to work it out in the box office. Who among them would transcend the stellar status of Judy Ann Santos and Claudine Barretto level after 4 to 5 more years? Who is just a passing fad and who among them can attain consistency and durability of a superstar? You can vote below:
