Enchong Dee wants to work with an older leading lady


110911-enchong_main.jpgAfter making known his interest in delving into independent movies and even offbeat roles in future acting projects, Enchong Dee admitted that aside from his current onscreen love team partner Erich Gonzales, he would also be open to being paired with other leading ladies like Anne Curtis. He even has a possible story angle in mind already.

Puwede rin ba si Anne Curtis? (laughs) Besides kay Anne, gusto ko siguro someone older para kakaiba naman. May movie dati yung The Rebound,  yung kay Catherine Zeta-Jones, gusto ko yung parang ganun. Parang younger man tapos older woman yung anggulo. May light story pero at the same time hindi siya super sexy, yung ganun. And wish ko one day magkaroon ng ganun, tapos siguro sila Ms. Gretchen (Barretto) sana yung ma-cast, ganun,” he admitted.

The actor-athlete said he is already starting to get excited about a couple of projects lined up for him but refuses to give specific details about them yet. “Meron silang sinasabi sa akin pero ayoko mag-assume hangga’t ready na yung project kasi na-e-excite ako. Pag na-e-excite ako tapos hindi natutuloy nalulungkot ako eh. Kaya sabi ko sabihin na lang nila sa akin kapag ready na talaga. May sinasabi sila sa akin na pagbalik ko daw ng tour gagawa daw ng pelikula pero sabi ko sige kung ready na,” he shared. Enchong recently returned from the United States after doing a series of shows and also celebrating Halloween and his birthday abroad with other Star Magic talents like Gerald Anderson, Rayver Cruz, Sam Milby, and Pokwang.

The Maria la del Barrio actor also dispelled any doubts as to whether he is also transferring networks this year. “May piramahan ng bagong management contract so definitely hindi tayo lilipat sa kahit saang network. Wala pa namang date kasi automatic sila magre-renew eh,” he said.

When it comes to his personal life, Enchong said he is happy even if he does not have a girlfriend because he has someone to inspire him, which most speculate to be Growing Up actress Julia Montes. “Hindi naman, inspiration lang. Itago na lang muna natin yan, sa ibang araw, sa ibang oras na lang. It’s better to be quiet kumbaga on things na more personal, yun lang mapag-uusapan. So it’s better na kokonti lang yung may alam,” he said.

As one of the Kapamilya network’s leading young stars, Enchong stressed the importance of living a clean life and implores his fans to follow his lead. “Advice ko is to stay away from the things na alam niyong hindi makakabuti sa inyo. Alam naman natin yun eh. Hindi naman natin kailangan mag-dalawang isip pa eh kung makakasama ba iyong smoking, makakasama ba yung drinking? Automatic kailangan natin maisip i-separate yung sarili natin, learn how to say no, ganyan,” he said.
