Noong panahon ng kompetiston ay humarap sa samu’t saring kritisismo si Siera noon dahil sa kaniyang timbang, kung kaya naman hindi niya maiwasang hindi magsalita aa kay Harnaaz.
Hayag ni Siera, “To me, it’s a really sensitive topic because I’ve been in the shoes… of people saying I wasn’t good enough, people saying too big, too curvy, I needed to lose weight.”
Dito ay nagbalik tanaw din siya nang minsang may isang former Filipina Miss Universe ang nagkaroon ng komento tungkol sa katawan niya.
“In fact, some of you would know that actually a former Miss Universe from the Philippines… she was interviewed and she said that one of her favorite contestants for Miss Universe, was me—Miss Canada.
“But then I could use to lose eight pounds or 10 pounds or something…
“I mean I wasn’t really bothered by this whatever, I didn’t really care.” ani ng beauty queen.
Nagkaroon din daw ng pagkakataon na magkaharap sila ni Siera. “I did meet her, actually, at a gala event during Miss Universe.
“And I was very nice. I didn’t say anything about this interview.
“But I could tell she was kind of like, ‘Oh, maybe I shouldn’t have said that.’”
Dagdag niya, “But everyone has different opinions and everyone has a different vision of what they think is beautiful, of what they think is accepted.”
Samantala, makikitang tila ang Miss Universe 1969 na si Gloria Diaz ang tinutukoy ng dalaga ayon sa mga netizens sa comment section ng interview.
“Yes, I still remember it. I’ve seen it on TV. Ms. Gloria Diaz was asked by media and talked about your weight,”
“I think the comment of Miss Universe 1969 Gloria Diaz was a compliment. She saw on her [Siera] the beauty and personality of a Miss Universe oh yes she should not say about her weight.”
