Cristine Reyes: 'Nagsasawa na ako sa sexy roles'


081011-cristine_main.jpgMuch to the delight of Cristine Reyes and her co-stars in Reputasyon, the afternoon teleserye’s ratings continue to grow stronger. “Oo nga, alam naman natin single [digit] lang palagi [dati]. Happy ako, at least nabuhay ng Reputasyon ang panghapon ng ABS-CBN. At hindi natin ‘yan magagawa kung wala ang tulong ng mga tagasuporta.”

Aside from the high ratings, Cristine is also happy with Reputasyon because it is pushing her to be known as a serious actress.  She related that she felt excited rather than pressured when she found out that the role would not require her go sexy. “Mas gusto ko siya. Parang siguro kasi hindi naman forever ganun ‘yung roles (sexy roles) ‘di ba? Nung in-offer ito natuwa talaga kami ng manager ko.”

With the strong reception to the teleserye, Cristine is grateful that the audience still supports her even without having to flaunt her figure in a project. “Thankful naman ako. Akala kasi nila puro sexy lang ganyan. Ngayon napatunayan ko kaya ko ring gumawa ng show na hindi ko kailangang maging sexy para panoorin ng tao. So happy ako lalong-lalo na kay Lord kasi blessing ito sa akin eh.

The actress did not deny that she wants to give up her sexy image and wants to be known as an actress. “Sana [wholesome image]. Gusto ko rin naman ng iba. Nagsasawa na ako eh sa sexy roles. Iwan na natin sa iba ‘yon. Gusto ko iba naman,” she explained.

And while she gets good reviews for her impressive performance in Reputasyon, she is not expecting to get an award but would consider it a bonus if she gets recognized. “Ayokong mag-expect kasi bata pa lang ako pagpasok ko ng showbiz, gusto ko nang magka-award. So antagal-tagal. [pero] ‘pag ‘di mo ine-expect dun ka magkaka-award. Katulad nung sa Eva Fonda nagkaroon [ako] ng award. Siguro mas maganda kung huwag akong mag-expect para mas magulat ako.”
