“Die Beautiful” actor and long-time Eat Bulaga host Paolo Ballesteros flaunted again his drag queenside in the May issue of Mega Drag online magazine. 

Paolo was also known for his iconic transformation looks from celebrities like Audrey Hepburn, Manilyn Monroe, Anne Hathaway, and Mariah Carey. 

During his interview with Mega Drag, the actor shared how the drag transformation changed his way of being creative and presenting himself. 

“Nagkakaroon ka ng power na kaya mong gawin ang kahit ano’ pag naka-drag, na parang on a normal day, maiilang kang gawin, Paolo said, ” Yon’ yong natutunan ko at nabigay ng drag sa akin,” he added. 

From doing it as a simple hobby to becoming a viral sensation, Paolo never thought that he would be the lead star of “Die Beautiful” where he portrays a drag queen. 

“After 15 years ng pagiging artista, nagkaroon ako ng movie na ako yung bida,” Paolo also shared in the interview.

His performance in the movie also gave him the best actor trophy at the 29th Tokyo International Film Festival.
