You gotta have Heart

Actress Heart Evangelista stands five foot two. I mention this because she played a dwarf on a Filipino TV series titled Dwarfina back in 2011. A promotional photo from the show:

We concede that Heart, born Love Marie Payawal Ongpauco on this very date thirty years ago, is Not Particularly Tall.

Not that this matters, really:

Back in ought-three, she cut an album called, natch, Heart. This is a track therefrom:

Very Eighties-looking video for some reason.

    They’ve elongated her for the Esq. cover? She doesn’t look the woman on the 1st picture, nor the one @the video.
    [And being 5’3″, I don’t find anything dwarfish in 5’2″hgt]

    Which is why I mentioned her height early on: I don’t know that much about Pinoy culture, but in the States, you have to be 4’10” or less to get into the dwarves’ union.

    The video and the Esquire cover are ten years apart.
