Filipino actor/comedian/model Sinon Loresca is 28 and has a really great figure. Really, really great.

He’s good looking and, based on the many stories written about him and a recently-released TV documentary about his life, has a kind heart, too. Apart from that, Loresca is also a hardworking, confident man who has so far managed to tackle almost all the major challenges that have come his way.

But all those are not what make Loresco, 28, the huge celebrity he is today.

What he is most known for online are his funny video clips and pictures in which he struts around in a bathing suit and six-inch bedazzled high heels.

Yes, that’s right. Many of Loresco’s clips show him walking – without difficulty – in super high heel stilettos on imaginary fashion runways. There is even a video of him playing basketball in those shoes, and two clips that show him brisk walking on the treadmill. Maybe that’s how he got his gorgeous physique.

Recently, Loresco posted a video of him on Instagram performing a Miss Universe-themed catwalk strut ahead of the actual event that took place in his home country. The video, made in support of Miss Philippines Maxine Medina in the competition, was re-posted by 9gag on their Facebook page; it was viewed 20 million times in a single week.

Although Loresco enjoys his fame and fortune now, things were very different for him a few years back. Based on the biopic and some of his posts on Instagram, Loresco’s parents were never supportive of him and always had problems accepting him the way he is. After his sister Catherine moved to London, Loresco left home to get away from his parents’ abuse.

He found work and managed to get by on his own, but was mistreated by employers. He then went to live with his uncles in Payatas and started salvaging items from junk yards to sell, joining a handful of street children who shared the same fate as him.

He worked hard to get to where he is now, but is always reminded of the times when he was down on his luck. There are videos and pictures of Loresca handing out food to street kids and the homeless, and even a picture of him sleeping on a piece of cardboard next to a child on the street.

In one post, he talks about his father: “Every pain, every punched and every slapped that I got from my dad gave me strength, confidence and courage to fight for my dream. Never ever let your past stop you from dreaming, fighting and achieving your goals in life. Use those bad experiences to achieve the fruit of life. Pain is a pesky part of being human, I’ve learned it feels like a stab wound to the heart, something I wish we could all do without, in our lives here. Pain is a sudden hurt that can’t be escaped. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing. Pain feels like a fast stab wound to the heart. But then healing feels like the wind against your face when you are spreading your wings and flying through the air! We may not have wings growing out of our backs, but healing is the closest thing that will give us that wind against our faces. I LOVE my dad so much, without him I will never be this strong person!”
