Gretchen Barretto recalled her beauty peg years ago

Former actress Gretchen Barretto recalled the time when she received “like a fish” comment due to her lip procedure.

Gretchen started her career in showbiz when she was just a teenager. From teen roles, she was able to transition to more serious roles and eventually established her name as one of the most famous drama actresses of her generation.

Aside from her acting prowess, Gretchen is also known for being one of the most beautiful faces in Philippine showbiz. However, she had a different peg when it came to her face years ago.

In a recent vlog shared by celebrity doctor Aivee Teo, based on the article in Inquirer, Gretchen Barretto recalled the lip procedure that she had before.

Dr. Aivee is one of Gretchen’s closest friends. In the vlog, Gretchen gave her guests a small house tour. They recalled how their friendship started 17 years ago. The dermatologist would personally go to the former actress’s house and do some cosmetic procedures.

Eventually, they became close and their friendship is nearly for two decades now. “We do all the treatments. Oh my God—and my lips! The days of my lips!” Gretchen recalled. This garnered laughter from her companions.

“I wanted to be like Angelina Jolie. I’m like, ‘No Aivee, bigger!’ [Then] she’d say, ‘No, you can’t have it.’ [I’m like], ‘Please, please!'” the former actress revealed. The dermatologist revealed that Gretchen was so determined to achieve the Angelina lips that was why she kept on insisting “More, more!”

Gretchen said that Dr. Aivee could not leave her house until she gave her the Angelina-inspired lips. “Lumaki nang lumaki. The people were like, ‘She looks like a fish.’ But I loved it!” the former actress recalled.

Dr. Aivee said that was what Gretchen wanted and once the latter wants something, she would really get it.
