Pilar Pilapil (born October 12, 1950) is a Filipino actress. She won as Bb. Pilipinas-Universe in 1967. She represented the country in the Miss Universe 1967 pageant. She is originally a native of Camiling, Tarlac and her husband is the one who brought her to Liloan, Cebu. She graduated from the Camiling Colleges in high school.
After winning the Binibining Pilipinas beauty pageant in 1967, Pilapil was swamped with offers to join the movies. Her first film was the action picture El Nino (1968) with Andy Poe as her leading man, directed by Fernando Poe, Jr..
She did movies with Dolphy such as Dolpe De Gulat (1969) and El Pinoy Matador (1970), among others. She won two best actress awards, one for the movie Imelda, Ang Uliran (1970) at the Manila Film Festival and another for the film Napakasakit Kuya Eddie (1986) for Gawad Urian Award 1987.
She also dabbed in politics when she ran for senator in 2004 as an independent candidate but she lost. In 2006, she released an autobiography entitled The Woman Without A Face, chronicling her life in show business and in private life after she went on semi-retirement.
She has a daughter with Doy Laurel named Pia Pilapil, who is also an actress. She married Spanish journalist Michel Ponti in October 12, 1986 at the Manila Cathedral, but they divorced after a year. She became a born-again Christian in 1995, and married Pastor Bernie Penas on May 18, 2002.
Pilapil has a foundation named Pilar Pilapil Foundation, which helps battered and abused women, among others.
