On the cover, the magazine called her “Our Golden Girl.” This is accompanied by the text, “internationally-acclaimed actor Dolly de Leon’s time is now!”

According to the magazine, “The internationally acclaimed actress Dolly de Leon graces us with her story of hope and resilience in this month’s issue. From her humble beginnings to almost giving up thrice, de Leon bares it all and gives us a peek into her new place in the entertainment industry. Determined to stand up for the underdogs, she says, ‘Artists are in that position where voices are relatively louder, so we might as well use that voice for something good. To be quiet about it and pretend everything is okay—I will never do that.'”

Triangle of Sadness

Here’s how Triangle of Sadness is described: “social hierarchy is turned upside down, revealing the tawdry relationship between power and beauty. Celebrity model couple, Carl (Harris Dickinson) and Yaya (Charlbi Dean), are invited on a luxury cruise for the uber-rich, helmed by an unhinged boat captain (Woody Harrelson). What first appeared Instagrammable ends catastrophically, leaving the survivors stranded on a desert island and fighting for survival.”

Triangle of Sadness won the Palme d’Or at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. It is the highest prize awarded in one of the “Big Five” major international film festivals.

De Leon was nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the Golden Globe Awards and the British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA). She was also awarded Best Supporting Performer at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association.

De Leon plays Abigail, a mild-mannered toilet manager who becomes a survivalist and team leader. The actress has earned praise for her role, with Variety saying that “her every line has so far prompted cheers in press and public screenings alike.” It adds that she “doesn’t get very far in Cannes without being stopped in the street by enthusiastic fans.”
