MANILA – While recent visits by Hollywood stars to the Philippines became front-page news, it seems another international celebrity sneaked in quietly for a vacation.

On Monday, Hollywood actress Emily VanCamp of the TV show "Revenge" tweeted about her “most relaxing” holiday experience in the country.

Posting a picture of her vacation, VanCamp said: “Thank you to the AMAZING staff at Amanpulo in the Philippines for the most relaxing, gorgeous holiday.”

She even used the hashtag “paradise” to describe the Philippine island.

Immediately after her post, the tweet was already “retweeted” more than 160 times, and was “favorited” by more 160 people.

VanCamp also reposted a tweet from her sister Katie VanCamp, who posted more photos of their Philippine vacation in her own Instagram account.

VanCamp is the lead star of the hit American series “Revenge,” which tells the story of Emily Thorne, as she returned to the Hamptons to seek revenge on the people who destroyed her life and her father’s life.

Aside from “Revenge,” reports said VanCamp will also star in Marvel's “Captain America: The Winter Solider.”
