The Showtime judge explains that his temperament has mellowed down over the years.
At the press conference of his launching movie, Petrang Kabayo, Vice Ganda was very patient when he answered the perennial question about him becoming arrogant because of his growing popularity. "Lumaki na nang husto rito, pasabog na siya ngayon," he began jokingly. "Ako naniniwala ako na hindi lumalaki ang ulo ng tao. Kung ano 'lsquo;yung ugali ko ngayon na nakikita, 'lsquo;yun siguro ang totoong ugali ko." The Showtime judge explained that he has always been exuding that kind of personality even when he was younger and has actually mellowed down now. "Ito talaga ako, ever since mayabang na ako. Mas mayabang pa nga ako noon kesa ngayon. Kasi ngayon mas conscious ako sa ikinikilos ko, mas mas iniisip ko 'lsquo;yung sinasabi ko dahil maaaring dahil 'lsquo;pag sinabi ko na naman 'lsquo;yan ganyan, ganyan'hellip; pero feeling ko mas mabait ako ngayon kesa dati."'nbsp; 'nbsp;
Though he has proven that he is an in-demand endorser and celebrity, Vice shared the difficulties he had to endure when he shot his launching movie. He said that he had to literally drag a calesa with fellow stars riding on it and the need to face one of his greatest fears such as snakes. "Torture talaga kaya muntik kaming mag-away (ni Direk Wenn Deramas), natakot ako baka humantong kami sa hindi pagkakaintindihan kasi ayoko talaga," he shared when the director told him that he needed to wring a python or a large snake around his body. "'rsquo;Yung thought nga lang na ipapahawak 'lsquo;yung ahas, hindi nga lang hawak ipupulupot sa buong katawan ko ayoko nang pumayag." Vice shared how afraid he was when caught the sight of the 15-foot long snake and it took a long time before Direk Wenn was able to convince him to finally agree to his instructions. "Inisip ko na lang 'lsquo;yung pagod na ng ibang tao na nagtatrabaho ng hanggang madaling-araw na alam kong minumura na nila ako na gawin mo na para makauwi na rin kami."
However, the comedian said firmly that that would be the last time that he would be forced to deal with a snake. "Pinagbigyan ko sila pinagbigyan ko na lang pero hindi ko makakalimutan 'lsquo;yon at hindi na mauulit. Torture pero it'rsquo;s an experience."
