Angelica Panganiban says that thinking too much about titles and stature will just affect her work.
While Angelica Panganiban has been reaping praise for her acting both in drama and comedy, she said she remains very grounded. "Hindi pa siya nagsi-sink in sa akin at feeling ko never siyang papasok sa isip ko. Siguro 'lsquo;yung mga taong nagmamahal na lang sa akin ang mag appreciate nun at hindi ako," she told reporters after her recent contract signing with Star Cinema. Angelica is currently shooting the comedy horror Bulong with Vhong Navarro, and next year, she is slated to do a movie with John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo and another one with boyfriend Derek Ramsay.
Angelica further said that now Star Cinema has lined up three film projects for her, she would rather think of herself as any ordinary person who was given a big blessing. "As much as possible gusto ko tao pa rin ako. Pumasok ako ngayon, pumirma ng kontrata, nabigyan ng trabaho. Para lang akong kahit sinong empleyado na nabigyan ng promotion ba. Mamaya lalabas ako na parang normal na tao pa rin."
When asked if she deserves the title as the new "Queen" of ABS-CBN, Angelica joked, "Hindi po totoo 'lsquo;yan. Wala akong korona, ha ha ha! Mahirap mabigyan ng ganung title, na reyna ka. Gusto ko kapag naging reyna ako sa akin lang 'lsquo;yung korona, hindi ko ipapasa sa iba'hellip;echoz! 'lsquo;Di ba kapag beauty queen ka isang taon lang, tapos next year ipapasa mo na. Baka hindi na ibigay sa akin 'lsquo;yung korona ng reyna kasi alam nilang ipagdadamot ko, ha ha ha!"
Angelica practically grew up in showbiz, having been acting for 18 years now. From being a child star, she successfully transitioned into a mature actress. Although she appears to be on top of her game at this time, Angelica said she is trying her best not too get too caught up with success. "As much as possible gusto mong i-block off kung ano mang pakiramdam 'lsquo;yung pwedeng pumasok sa iyo. Pwede kasing makasira sa iyo 'lsquo;yung pakiramdam na 'lsquo;yun. Baka kasi natatakot ka so gusto mong tanggalin 'lsquo;yun. Baka pumangit 'lsquo;yung trabaho mo o lumaki 'lsquo;yung ulo mo which is hindi na maganda."
