    yeah, ella is already 18 but she looks like 13.
    so, wala naman sigurong problema. she’s an actress and role lang naman yun.

    si tom welling nga ng “smallville”, gumanap na teenager but in real life nung time na yun he’s already on his mid 20s.

  4. ella cruz plays the 13 year old girl? isn’t she 18 already??
