Former child actress Andrea Brillantes recently addressed "assumptions" that she's had plastic surgery, joking: "Hindi po ako retokada, pero thanks for thinking that. Ibig sabihin may maganda sa mukha ko para maisip niyo na retokada ako." Andrea, now 18, opened up about the plastic surgery rumors, as well as other assumptions about her in a new vlog.

Fast forward to 2021 and Andrea explains why her nose might look different to viewers when she starred in the hit teleserye Kadenang Ginto, which aired its first episode in October 2018.

"Kung titignan niyo rin naman yung mga baby pictures ko, kung iisipin niyo na peke yung ilong ko...kasi tumubo lang itong bridge ko noong Kadenang Ginto." Andrea shared. "Kasi manas na manas yung mukha ko dati. Doon ako nagsimulang pumayat. Tsaka nagma-mature kasi talaga ang mukha. At saka ang ilong, hindi yan tumitigil lumaki sa mukha ng isang tao."

In her vlog, Andrea revealed that while people think she was a "mean girl" in school, she's actually the one who got bullied. On being called "maldita," Andrea says she only has a resting b*tch face and that some people misinterpret her shyness for meanness. She also opened up about growing up in a slum area, saying that before she entered showbiz, rats used to bite her feet because she slept on a mat on the floor.
