I was touched watching ASAP ’08 this Sunday. Today’s edition was simply amazing. It paid tribute to the all-time Queen of Philippine Movies, Ms. Gloria Romero, who is celebrating her 75th Birthday! And she is still snappy at 75. Not to mention that she is still active in showbiz and a good one at that. Ms. Romero mentioned in the ASAP ’08 tribute that she has worked 21 years of that for ABS-CBN, and counting. Retirement is far from GloriaÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s mind. And after all the pretenders to the throne, Ms. Gloria Romero is still every inch a queen. ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒ…Ã¢â‚¬Å“It’s so funny, because at my age, imagine, I still have a billboard on EDSA,ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â chuckled the veteran actress.
In celebration of the 75th Birthday of Ms. Gloria Romero, Star Cinema has released a retrospective of all the films she has made, available in VCD and DVD format in all leading music stores in the Philippines and online.
