After weeks of controversy regarding allegations of cosmetic surgery, Arci Muñoz has finally mustered the courage to go out in public. However, it seems that the actress was not quite ready to show her face to the public.
The 28 year-old actress was reportedly spotted going out with a group of people including her rumored new beau, Anthony Ng, an ex-boyfriend of Arci’s fellow Kapamilya Erich Gonzales.
In the video uploaded to YouTube by Trendz Today, Arci and her friends were seen eating in Kapitolyo. In the early part of the video, Arci was spotted wearing a mask that covered the lower half of her face.
Netizens assumed that Arci was not ready for the public to see her “new” face. However, towards the end of the video, Arci takes the mask off and it doesn’t look like much has changed.
Rumors about Arci having cosmetic surgery circulated when photos of her from a few years ago resurfaced. Netizens quickly noticed the big difference between Arci’s face from back then and how she looks like today. Numerous negative comments flooded social media, many of them criticizing the actress for what fans perceived was extensive cosmetic surgery.
Days after the controversy emerged, Arci finally broke her silence. The “Passion de Amor” star said in an informal interview:
“E, nagpapakapal naman talaga ako ng lips kasi. Nilalagpasan ko yung lipstick ko eh. Napaka-open naman natin. So? Ano ba? (referring to cosmetic surgery). It’s open naman di ba? Personally, I’m not against it. It’s my body. And whatever’s gonna make me feel more comfortable and more confident sa aking sarili, I’ll do it. If I remove my lagpas lipstick, I’d probably look the same. I’ll probably look like a Grade 6 student.”
