Filipino actress Erich Gonzales has received another very public display of affection. This time though, it’s not from a creepy fan but a famous showbiz blogger.

Yesterday, blogger and gossip columnist Perez Hilton posted a photo of Gonzales on his Instagram with the caption “A true natural beauty!!”

A true natural beauty!! #WCW @erichgg

Hilton then tagged the actress and added the hashtag #WCW, which is internet-speak for “Woman Crush Wednesday.”

It’s unclear how Hilton, who mostly writes about Hollywood celebrities, knows of Gonzales but it looks like he could be following Philippine showbiz quite a bit. Earlier this year, he also liked an Instagram photo of actress Liza Soberano.

As random as Hilton’s post was, card-carrying members of the “Filipino Pride” movement couldn’t help but gush over it.


Gonzales, who currently stars in the ABS-CBN teleserye (soap opera) The Blood Sisters made headlines last year after Xian Gaza, a fan, asked her to go on a coffee date with him using a billboard.

Now known as the “coffee date” guy, Gaza has become infamous, not just for the stunt he pulled, but for various scams he has been linked to. Late last month, Gaza was sentenced to five years in prison for violating the Bouncing Check Law.

His billboard proposal instantly turned him into a meme, which he, oddly, loves and continues to milk.

Perez’s admiration for Gonzales was received much better in comparison.
