“I’ll always be grateful. But it comes to a point when you get to realize na parang gusto ko nang magpahinga talaga.”
When asked about taking acting offers in the future, he revealed that he wants to make films at his own pace. He revealed that being a celebrity already took a lot of time from him.
“I think, hindi dahil sa akin, pero ang hirap na hindi ko nagagawa ang mga gusto kong gawing pelikula kesyo ganito, kesyo ganyan. Parang gusto kong gumawa ng pelikula at projects at my own pace”
“Hindi yung kailangan kong gumawa ng pelikula dahil kailangan kong gumawa ng blockbuster hit or kailangan ng ganito. Parang hindi lang para mag-grow ako as a person, but also to help the film industry or the people in the industry.”
Then, he diverted the topic and talked about his latest film “Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral.”
“Mailalapit ko rin sa Goyo yung buhay ko dahil sa priorities. Parang, ‘What should you prioritize in your life?’
He compared himself to Heneral Gregorio del Pilar, the character he played on the movie.
