Actor Rustom Padilla arrived in the country last Thursday, January 15, after three months of studying in the United States with a surprising announcement — he is now known as “BB Gandanghari.”
“I’m a woman, so, call me BB,” Padilla said in an interview with GMA-7’s talkshow Startalk. “She is a God-fearing, loving lady. I am a woman. I am a woman. BB’s a woman…Emotionally, physically, biologically, spiritually, psychologically, socially…” he added when asked to describe who BB is.
His decision to change his name reportedly has nothing to do with his upcoming stage play “Gandanghari” where he portrays the role of a woman.
