Piolo to share thoughts on stardom

MANILA, Philippines - Multiawarded actor Piolo Pascual is happy to have finally portrayed a role far from his typical heartthrob image in the upcoming action-thriller, “OTJ” (On the Job).

The much anticipated film by Erik Matti also stars Joel Torre, Gerald Anderson, Angel Aquino, Michael de Mesa, Joey Marquez, and William Martinez.

Yet alongside this latest fulfillment in Piolo's careeer is the not-too-disguised if still ambivalent wish to say goodbye to it all.

In his candid interview with Patricia Evangelista of Rappler.com, Piolo, the star who perhaps embodies the vigorous modernity of today's showbiz milieu, shared his sobering understanding of stardom. 

"Everything is temporary in this world," he said. "It's inevitable that you become older, you fade away and you're not in your prime anymore, so you just got to accept the fact that you are not young forever."

Where does Piolo wish to venture outside showbiz? Does he have other dream projects besides "OJT"? How often does it appeal to him to turn his back on showbiz? 

The actor-singer-producer has an in-depth interview in "Showbiz Inside Report," in which he further shares his thoughts on his celebrity and the challenges and pressures of the industry. In doing so, Piolo also reveals the maturity behind his persona.

The ABS-CBN show also features special reports on the marital crisis between Claudine Barretto and Raymart Santiago and Sunshine Cruz and Cesar Montano - Rappler.com

 

This edition of “Showbiz Inside Report” featuring Piolo Pascual airs Saturday, August 17, 2:30 p.m.
