A different Ruffa Gutierrez in I Love Betty La Fea

Ruffa Gutierrez carried the beauty and glamour that she has been known for when she walked in for her special press conference for I Love Betty La Fea. The beauty queen-actress will play Daniela, the main kontrabida to Bea Alonzo. Although she portrays a discriminating corporate woman, Ruffa revealed that there was a time when she felt like poor Betty.

"When I was in grade school I felt really ugly. I was the shortest in the class, I had frizzy hair, I was wearing glasses because I couldn’t see the board. I remember that time na gusto kong maging Kris Aquino na straight ang hair. Pero kahit anong gawin kong blow dry sa buhok ko super kulot pa rin siya. I envied the typical Filipina girl na straight ang hair, cute, may kolehiyala accent." Ruffa recalled.

But the former teen star said that she got rid of all her insecurities when she underwent training for the Look Of The Year modeling competition. That later paved the way for her to represent our country in the 1993 Ms. World where she was crowned as Second Princess. Since then Ruffa has become the symbol of beauty, brains, and talent appearing in movies, television, commercials, and magazines.

With her role as Daniela, Ruffa is ready to showcase her side as a real-life fashion enthusiast. She will get to wear the best clothes crafted by known Filipino designers Kate Torralba, Rajo Laurel, Jun Escario, and Mitch Dulce among others, plus a few of her personal jewelry, bags, and shoes which she gladly shared for the show. But aside from the look, Ruffa also found a challenge in breathing life into the kontrabida role. "Ibang Ruffa Gutierrez yung makikita nila dito. Gusto kong i-separate yung pagiging Daniela ko sa pagiging Ruffa. Si Daniela is matapang, mataray, scheming, at ambisyosa. That’s not me, but I will give it my best shot to portray my character." she said.

Watch out for Ruffa as Daniela in I Love Betty La Fea premiering very soon. Also keep it here on www.ABS-CBN.com and ilovebettylafea.multiply.com for more exclusive updates on the show.
