Kapuso actress, Kris Bernal recently became one of the hottest topics on social media as her sexy photos in a two-piece-bikini made rounds on the internet.

After heating up social media, the Impostora star revealed the reason behind her sexy shoot in Pundaquit, Zambales, last Monday, March 13.

Bernal said, “This isn’t for any magazine cover, promotion, or endorsement. Just a playshoot with my extremely talented confidants. A random and an urgent invitation to the beach. You rarely see me in a bikini. Maybe as I age I’m starting to be comfortable with how much skin a swimsuit shows. I’ve always been the timid one but what you should know is that I’m also straightforward. And at this moment in time, my inner freak is no longer lying dormant. ??☀️ #KBRedefine #KeepElevating.”

REDEFINE / Part 1. This isn't for any magazine cover, promotion, or endorsement. Just a playshoot with my extremely talented confidants. A random and an urgent invitation to the beach. You rarely see me in a bikini. Maybe as I age I'm starting to be comfortable with how much skin a swimsuit shows. I've always been the timid one but what you should know is that I'm also straightforward. And at this moment in time, my inner freak is no longer lying dormant. ??☀️ #KBRedefine #KeepElevating ?: @jb_deleon ?: @aprilfelicianomua ?: customized by @house_of_fabulosa @ravewongfania @jammdelarosa Styled by: @debrabernales Videographer: @duxdacudao ??: Coach @russell.cayondong / @cityfitness_gym @anytimefitnessphilippines ?: @happydietdelivery

She also mentioned that the shoot reminded her about loving herself more and brushing off her physical insecurities.

She said, “Sometimes it’s just the angle, the attitude, the swimsuit or the makeup that makes me look thin and small. People can see me. So they know how small and petite I am whether I’m in a swimsuit, or jeans and a t-shirt. This is why I visit the gym. I’m not dying to have abs instead I’m focusing more on my hips and arms. I don’t always love my body, it’s not my fault that I look like this, but for some ludicrous reason, strutting about in a bikini is just fine about my not-so-perfect built. I feel good about myself and focus on the fun and not on any body insecurities I might have.”
