Sarah Geronimo says her past heartbreak made her a better actress


112611-sarah-main.jpgAlthough she was once bitter about falling in love, Sarah Geronimo shared that it didn’t really take her long to get over her breakup with Rayver Cruz compared to her character DJ Heidi in her upcoming movie Won’t Last A Day Without You. “Naka-relate ako sa character ko. Hindi naman po lingid sa inyong kaalaman ang aking pinagdaanan sa pag-ibig. Siyempre nakatulong din sa akin yung mga experiences ko in real life.”

Deep down, she knew that their relationship wouldn’t last and that knowledge saved her from dwelling too much on her heartache. “Ang kaibahan namin ni DJ Heidi, yung kanyang personal experience sa love, mas malalim e. Kasi yung relationship niya nagtagal ng five years, yung sa akin po ay [one year lang]. So ok lang naman, hindi ganon kabigat sa akin, kaya nakapag-move on rin ako agad.”

On hindsight, Sarah admitted that her painful experience actually helped her to become a deeper actress. “Nakatulong po ng malaki. Mayroon [na akong] depth kahit papaano as an actress. Alam ko madami pa akong kailangang matutunan kasi hindi naman ganon kadami yung acting projects ko, mas singer po tayo. Mas nakilala tayo sa light na storya or characters ang nabibigay sa akin.”

The Popstar Princess added that she’s actually inspired by Gerald Anderson’s notable performance in his advocacy series, Budoy. Asked if she’s willing to accept dramatic roles in the future, she simply replied, “Sobra akong inspired kay Gerald kasi ang galing galing niya talaga. Eventually po, sana [makagawa ako ng mas challenging projects]. Kung mabibigyan ako ng pagkakataon, bakit po hindi? At talagang paghahandaan po natin yun.
