Although she likes to help people, just like her most famous television character, the superhero Darna, Angel Locsin dismissed the idea of her having a hero complex.
As reported on Inquirer, the actress, who has been involved in several charity projects since the pandemic started, stated that she is not the same as her said superhero character, even if they have the same intention in helping people.
“I just believe that when there’s a will there’s a way. I will continue to help in different ways. Helping doesn’t always have to involve giving away money,” she said.
She believes the only reason that she is often seen doing charity work is because she is a celebrity and people would often take photos of her while she was participating in a fundraiser or a relief operation.
“I’m just a simple person. I’m not even rich. I’m not a millionaire. I believe that there are more people out there who are active on the field but aren’t given the same recognition and importance,” she said, adding that there are others who actually lead an exemplary life that could rival Darna.
“For them, I will gladly sit back, away from the limelight, and give them the recognition they deserve,” she added.
Nonetheless, the actress admitted that she took it as a big compliment that people still associate Darna with her until today.
