Teen superstar Kim Chiu graces the cover of this year's YES! Special: 100 Most Beautiful Stars, joining the ranks of previous cover girls Judy Ann Santos, KC Concepcion, and Marian Rivera. FN was present at the YES! launch last Tuesday as the cover girl laughed, saying it felt unreal when she found out that she had been chosen. "Nahihiya tuloy ako," she said. "Hindi naman po ako ganon kaganda, pero salamat po! (I feel shy. I'm not really that beautiful, but thank you so much!)"

Also present at the launch were actors Jason Abalos, Melissa Ricks, Kris Bernal, Aljur Abrenica, Mercedes Cabral, Bangs Garcia, and Ron Morales as well as singers Geoff Taylor, Jay-R, Ogie Alcasid, and Chris Cayzer, all of whom were featured in the list.

Q: Was there a point in your life that you felt like you weren't beautiful?

yes_100_list_melissa_ricks.jpgMelissa Ricks: I think we've all experienced this at one point in our lives. As you grow older, you learn to accept who you are and how you are, and that's when you realize that you're really beautiful.

yes_100_list_mercedes_cabral.jpgMercedes Cabral: Ako siguro nung bata ako, kasi nung bata ako makapal yung labi ko and inaasar ako dahil sa pangalan ko. Nung malaki na ako, natutunan ko nang mahalin kung ano yung meron ako. (For me, it was probably when I was a kid because when I was younger, I had thick lips and I got bullied because of my name. When I grew older, I learned how to love what I have.)

yes_100_list_kris_bernal.jpgKris Bernal: Opo, pero kapag nararamdaman ko po, pag nakikita ko lang yung pamilya ko or mga loved ones ko, wala, feeling ko po maganda na 'ko. (Yes, but whenever I feel that, all I have to do is see my family or my loved ones, and that's when I feel that I'm beautiful.)

Q: What do you think makes a person beautiful?

yes_100_list_jay_r.jpgJay-R: Personality talaga. Kasi we're in this business for our fans. We're here for the people. We entertain people. You know, in this field, siyempre, we can't be suplado, suplada, because siyempre without it, we wouldn't have a job. Personality, being nice to people, is definitely something that brings out the beauty in a person. It's not always just the looks. 

yes_100_list_geoff_taylor.jpgGeoff Taylor: Yung may takot sa Diyos. And kahit stressed ka, kailangan talaga smile lagi, and laging on-time sa work, siyempre. (Someone who is God-fearing. And, even when you're stressed, it's essential that you keep smiling. Also, you always have to be on-time at work, of course.) 

Q: Who do you think is the most beautiful star?

yes_100_list_bangs_garcia.jpgBangs Garcia: The most beautiful person for me is the Megastar, Sharon Cuneta. Kasi after all these years, she has managed to be an icon to Filipinos. She has a very Filipina beauty, and inside and out, she's really beautiful.

Q: If you weren't the cover for this year's YES! Magazine's 100 Most Beautiful Stars issue, who do you think could have taken your place from the list?

yes_100_list_kim_chiu.jpgKim Chiu: Ms. Dawn Zulueta. Sobrang galing niya. Sobrang ganda. Yung hindi tumatanda. (She's really great. So beautiful. She never grows old.) At tsaka she's beautiful inside and out.

Q: How do you feel that you were chosen to be in the Most Beautiful List?

yes_100_list_ogie_alcasid.jpgOgie Alcasid: Una sa lahat, binabati ko muna yung mga co-beautiful ko. Hindi ko alam kung bakit ako nandito pero salamat na rin at baka huli ko na 'to, eh. (First of all, I'd like to thank my co-beautifuls. I don't know why I'm here, but I'd like to say thank you anyway because this might be my last time.) I'm here because I'm very supportive of YES!, you know. They've always been kind to all of us artists. Kahit wala ako sa 100 most beautiful, pupunta pa rin ako, di ba? (Even if I wasn't included in the 100 most beautiful, I would still go, right?) So congratulations to my co-100 co-beautiful title holders. I hope you do well in your reign. One year... we have a purpose, and that is to be beautiful for everybody. I would like to carry that for one more year, thank you very much. God bless you all. And world peace.
