"Our industry is all about exposure and collaboration."

Despite being a big star herself, Liza Soberano enjoys a fangirl moment here and there—snapping photos alongside international celebrities with the likes of Bretman Rock, Cole Sprouse, and just recently, Nevertheless star Song Kang. The actress isn’t shy to post these adorable moments on her socials—earning her both positive and negative reactions alike.

In an interview with Bea Alonzo, the Careless artist was put on the hot seat, asked controversial questions about her career. One of the burning queries is about the notion that she’s a “clout chaser,” given the many times she rubbed elbows with other famous stars and flexed them.

To which, she had a surprising yet refreshing response. “Yes,” she admitted, debunking the negative stereotype that comes with the term. “There’s no shame in clout-chasing. That’s what the industry is. That’s what I don't get actually about the Philippines—everybody’s so afraid of social climbing or clout chasing. But our industry is all about exposure and collaboration, and that’s what I love about America.”

“They don’t see it as clout chasing. They see it as you getting the bag. They see it as you working hard to achieve your goals, being proactive with your career,” she added.

She explains how she hopes to make fruitful outputs from connecting with global A-listers. “So yes, I’m meeting with these international celebrities. I’m doing that because I want to gain knowledge through them. I want to gain collaboration, and more fans hopefully if they like what I do. If they don’t like what I do, that’s okay too. Yes, I do use their clout to help myself, and that’s how it should be in the entertainment [industry.]”


Liza also shared that her biggest starstruck moment was meeting K-pop girl group Blackpink. “Oh my gosh. Blackpink! They were so nice. And that was not just part of my clout,” she clears.

“I really want to meet them; I’m so starstruck by them and everything they’ve achieved. I’m just in awe. And I’m genuinely a fan of their music.”

Talking about her own fans, Liza said that she’s not entirely quitting her showbiz career, which is good news for her loyal follower base. “No, I’m not abandoning it totally. I still want to be able to do stuff here by leveraging what I’ve achieved as an actress. But for the next few years, ang focus ko talaga is Hollywood because there’s a lot of work to be done. I’m a nobody there, so I still have to work hard, and put in a lot of time and effort. But I still want to keep in touch with my fanbase here.”
