Actors and actresses always have different shows, movies and guest appearances. We know that there are only a handful of celebrities who have made it to the top. TV commercials also pay well especially if the model is already a popular movie star. In the Philippines, the talent fees really depend on the popularity of a person. The popularity is being measured by the number of fans and movies produced. Supporting roles can pay decent money but major roles really show a huge difference. Sometimes there are only a few people in show business who can portray major roles.
Sharon Cuneta who is known as the mega star creates her own fame and fortune. She became famous by having a strong love team with Gabby Concepcion. This became one of the unforgettable moments in the history of show business. The fans loved this idea of creating love teams during the 80’s. Sharon is still one of the top earners today with several product endorsements for Magnolia, Selecta and McDonalds just to name a few. When Senator Kiko Pangilinan and Sharon Cuneta got married, these two people are having a tough time to avoid the limelight. We can say that Sharon became the center of attraction again. Until now, she is still considered a popular figure.
Being a celebrity does not mean you need to show your hidden talents on the big screen just like actors and actresses are doing. Manny Pacquiao is a great example. In boxing, the best way to be famous is to start fighting greater boxers. This is what Manny Pacquiao did. He fought Marco Antonio Barrera and at that time, Manny was considered the underdog. Barrera got the attention of the crowd at first but Pacquaio beat him up in the latter part of the fight. Speed and resiliency are the two best ingredients of Manny. This event is actually the start of Pacquiao’s popularity. He became more exposed to the press, critics and other boxers around the globe. Beating the people’s champ of Mexico really does matter. Now, the Filipino boxer already appeared to several television commercials. These include Darlington socks, San Miguel Beer, Alaxan and many more. Manny’s identity became an icon not only in the Philippines but also in different parts of the world. In fact, there are also foreign celebrities who like Manny Pacquiao’s greatness in his field. These are Sylvester Stallone, Mark Wahlberg and Boston Celtics’ Kevin Garnett. Today, Manny Pacquaio is a congressman of Sarangani province. He currently owns a private helicopter, houses and luxurious cars. Pacman also manages a number of businesses. Because of fame, his mother Mommy Dionisia became an instant celebrity as well. She had a few television commercials as well.
