If you ever thought Daniel Padilla was an entitled actor (what with his family name and celebrity status), you can put that thought to rest. Redditors shared their encounters with the 28-year-old over the years and they’ve got nothing but kind words for the actor. It turns out, even when the cameras aren’t rolling, Daniel is still the ideal good boy. Check out their cute testimonies below:
Starting off strong with a cute encounter: “Mom and I were on a flight with him, siya nagbaba ng carry-on luggage namin (didn’t ask him for help, ginawa niya lang) AND yung stairs yung ginamit sa pag-deplane, kinuha niya bag ng mom ko and carried it down for her all the way to the bus,” recalled one Redditor.
And yes, before you freak out because it could actually be dangerous to touch a stranger’s luggage, Daniel did ask permission from OP’s mom.
A former ABS-CBN employee commented on Reddit that Daniel is an actor who genuinely cares about the staff. “I’m a former ABS employee and I can attest to this. Genuinely mabait yan and hindi suplado. Sobrang caring pa sa staff pag may shoot,” read the comment.
“When Daniel would promote his movies at a famous amusement park in the PH, out of all his coworkers, he’d be the only one gushed about. Super sweet niya kasi sa mga employees — hindi matataas ung positions nila ah. he’d take lots of pictures with them whenever they’d ask him to, chat, joke around, tas aakbayan pa niya yung mga seniors kaya kilig na kilig sila. He’d also give [up] his seat.”
Another Redditor reminded everyone of what happened when a tricycle driver rear-ended Daniel’s sports car three years ago. Instead of losing his cool and involving authorities (as some celebrities would’ve done), Daniel simply reprimanded him and even gave him money. While the commotion was happening, Daniel even stopped to take photos with his fans. Who’s doing it like him?

Speaking of taking selfies, Daniel has always been generous in that department when it comes to his fans. In an interview with Boy Abunda, he says he does it because he knows it will make someone’s day. “Alam ko kung san sila galing, alam ko kung gaano na sila katagal naghihintay. Ano ba naman yung picture, gano ba naman kahirap yun?” said Daniel. Best boy indeed!
daniel padilla paid the gas for a group of grabfood delivery men when he saw them at a gas station; and some of his insecure haters want to diminish his good deeds by calling them bare minimum? i mean he doesn’t have to, but he still chooses to coz he’s THAT kind https://t.co/0qQVe83UDh pic.twitter.com/YrEEK3rcEi

Daniel’s good deeds even spilled to TikTok and X (formerly Twitter). One TikTok user commented that Daniel was once at a Shell station and he paid for gas for all the delivery drivers there.
One Redditor shared how Daniel Padilla let them pay for their item first at a Lawson convenience store just because they only had one item and he had about four.
This is true. Daniel Padilla, best guy indeed.
Naka sabay namin to kumain – 3 years ago. Sikat na sikat na sya noon. Palabas na kami ng restaurant tapos papasok pa lang sila, medyo malayo pa kami sa may pinto so akala ko binuksan nya para makapasok sila but no he waited for us. https://t.co/cUT1uifn5m

An X user also shared how Daniel held a restaurant door open and waited for them to pass through. Now that’s a thoughtful gentleman!

One of the most liked tweets was a story about an ABS-CBN intern encountering Daniel in the elevator. When Daniel rushed to catch up with the elevator, the intern stepped out, assuming that they weren’t allowed inside if a celebrity was using it. But Daniel simply asked the intern to step back in.
Not only is Daniel sweet to staff when he’s doing his projects, he’s also kind to those who take care of him outside of work. One Redditor told a story of how their sister was a nurse who was assigned to Daniel at the hospital. Afterward, he brought her coffee to show his appreciation.
With all these testimonies about Daniel Padilla having a stellar character, we can only say one thing: Nasa kaniya na ang lahat.
