Jake Cuenca wants to be known for more than just being a sexy actor


092211-jake_main.jpgJake Cuenca is not new to doing sexy roles but he said that he also wants to be taken as a serious actor. “Ayoko naman [na puro sexy roles],” he expressed. Jake stars in the film, My Neighbor’s Wife, which is currently in theaters. “Coming out of [the film] In The Name Of Love, tapos Green Rose and then this one… ‘yung susunod kong movie pwedeng expect na kakaiba ulit.”

Asked if his role in his next movie project will be daring too, he simply replied, “Not necessarily more daring. Unless may mga mag-alok na magagandang pelikula na daring ulit. ‘Yung susunod kong gagawin na tinanggap ko na, I won’t reveal any detail about it but it’s completely different from all the roles that I have done. Back to Star Cinema ako.”

Apart from that movie project, Jake also revealed that he has a new teleserye coming up and divulged that Shaina Magdayao is supposed to be his leading lady. The two previously worked together in Ruby, a Mexicanovela adaptation.

Jake described the teleserye as something different and stressed that he is not just limiting himself in being a sexy actor. “Isa lang siyang facet sa career ko. Isa lang siyang parte ng career ko. Hindi dun at dun lang. Meron akong gustong patunayan sa sarili ko na gusto kong maging versatile actor.”

Jake added that he is not worried about Shaina’s boyfriend, John Lloyd Cruz getting jealous of him. “Eksena lang naman ‘yon. Wala naman akong plano manulot at ‘di naman ako mantatalo ng tao,” Jake justified. He said that if he will do a kissing scene with Shaina, it’s not something personal and pointed out that he and Shaina also had a kissing scene in their previous teleserye. He emphasized his point by saying it’s not the first time that he has had a kissing scene with someone who is committed in real life.

Jake added, “Magkakilala naman na kami ni John Lloyd, tsaka napakaliit ng industriya. Siguro walang problema. Tsaka trabaho din naman ‘yan. I have all the respect to John Lloyd, in fact, I look up to him.”
