Judy Ann Santos says marriage does not spell the end of a celebrity's career


Judy Ann Santos does not believe in the theory that an actress’s popularity wanes once she gets married. “Masyado nang matured ang utak ng mga audiences ngayon, eh. Kung mahusay kang artista, kung paano mo dalhin ang career mo, at ‘yung mga taong nakapaligid sa ‘yo, kung paano ka pumili ng mga proyekto hindi ka naman mawawala,” she explained.

Judai even cited the careers of Sharon Cuneta and Kris Aquino to prove her point. “Andami namang nag-asawa d’yan na hindi nawala. Nagkakataon lang siguro,” she added. She did acknowledged the fact that an actress’s priorities may inevitably change once she decides to tie the knot. When Judai finally married actor-host Ryan Agoncillo, she temporarily stepped out of the limelight to give time to her family life. “Siguro kailangan lang talaga na magdesisyon ng mga babae na mag-lie-low lang talaga. It’s a choice. It’s a decision we have to make dahil kailangan din talagang pagtuunan ng pansin ang pamilya,” she admitted.

Judy Ann said that having been in the business for most of her life, it would not be hard for people to understand if she decides to leave showbiz every now and then to give time to her family. “Yung maliit na panahon na pagpapaalam namin sa industirya para alagaan ‘yung pamilya namin hindi naman siguro masama ‘yon or hindi naman siguro isang bagay na hindi maiintindihan ng mga tao so may mga chances na ganun ‘yung nangyayari. Pero naniniwala ako na sa bawat artistang babaeng nag-aasawa may isang tamang project na magpapabalik sa kanya sa industriya.”

Aside from her scheduled comeback to the primetime slot next year via Habang May Buhay, Judai is excited about working with Sarah Geronimo in a movie slated for 2010. “Excited si bagets (Sarah) at excited din akong makatrabaho siya. Pinag-usapan na nga naming kung paano namin babaguhin ‘yung itsura namin ‘pag nag-shoot kami ng pelikula kasi gusto ko rin naman maiba ang itsura ni bagets sa pelikulang ito. Mas excited ako na magda-drama si Sarah,” she revealed.
