Antoinette Taus is flattered when some people say she has a resemblance with Marian Rivera, the current girlfriend of the former child star’s ex-boyfriend Dingdong Dantes.

Taus said she finds such comments flattering because she thinks Rivera is really beautiful.

Everybody has been saying [that], which I always say na flattered din ako kasi nagagandahan ako sa kanya at napaka-sexy niya. So kung ‘yun ang sinasabi nila, thank you. Honestly thank you talaga,” she said.

In fact, Taus said it was Dantes himself who first told her about that observation.

Ang daming nagsasabi …dati pa. Si Dingdong ang unang nagsabi sa akin niyan nung una pa lang na nag-show silang dalawa. And then ‘yun na, sunud-sunod na,” she related.

Meanwhile, Taus revealed she is excited to be back in the Philippines – and in showbiz — 10 years since she moved to the United States.

It actually feels greater than I even expected. Supposed to be dapat long vacation lang ito so balak ko sana sa trip na ito, magwo-work ako ng konti lang and spend time with my family. Tapos ang dami na lang nangyari na hindi ko ine-expect. I always live life according to what I think God’s will is. So ang dating is parang sinasabi niya sa akin na dito muna ako, so dito muna ako,” she said.

On Tuesday, Taus inked a contract with Viva Entertainment, which includes a comeback album.

Asked if her supporters could expect a different Antoinette Taus now, the actress said, “Malamang. Una naman kasi talaga, parang hindi ko naman na kaya magpa-tweetums. The real me naman, I’m really bubbly. I don’t want to say aggressive but I’m very outgoing and straightforward so hopefully makakita din sila ng ibang side sa akin.”

Taus said she is happy to return to showbiz, which, she noted, has become more dynamic.
