The superhero selfie
But before y’all go wild, Jessy donned the Darna costume as part of a production number she did on the ABS-CBN variety show Banana Sundae. The actress took to Instagram to tell her followers that it was just done for fun:
“Disclaimer: *Ito ay pawang katatawanan lamang, trabaho lang po. Walang personalan.* Masaya nako kasi nabigyan ako ng pagkakataon masuot ang costume ni Darna. Kahit spoof lang. Thank you Banana Sundae. Kala ko binibiro niyo lang ako eh. Seryoso pala kayo. ???? (sa mga magagalit, sumusunod lang po ako sa utos ng director ko. Kalma.) #lablablab”
"Trabaho lang po."
The Kapamilya hottie has been rumored to be Angel Locsin’s replacement in the Star Cinema reboot of the iconic superhero movie. Although Jessy denies these rumors, one can’t help but speculate that she’s actually the next gen Darna ‘cause she looks SO DAMN GOOD in that costume.
Now who wants to go to the gym with me?
