Vice Ganda says he wants to become the first gay action star


101812-vice_main.jpgWith his Star Cinema comedy This Guy’s In Love With You, Mare currently making a killing at the box-office, Vice Ganda admitted he is feeling on top of the world right now. But aside from the usual comic roles he plays, the talented comedian revealed he also wants to venture into other genres.

“Actually nasabi ko kay direk Wenn (Deramas) na gusto ko mag-action. Yung totoong action na gusto ko maging yung first na bading na gumagawa ng action movie. Gusto ko tumalon sa San Juanico bridge, kasi ‘di ba may gumawa nun si Dante Varona? Meron ngang eksena dito sa This Guy’s In Love With You, Mare na tatalon ako pababa from the terrace pero gumamit ng stunt double. Sabi ko, ‘Direk kaya kong gawin yun eh.’ Ayaw lang nila ako payagan. Gusto ko sana eh.’ Ang isang dream ko pa, gusto ko maranasang masampal ni miss Maricel Soriano sa isang pelikula,” he shared.

The 36-year-old host-actor said that he cannot consider himself a true actor if he does not do a variety of roles outside his comfort zone. “Siguro darating yung panahon na kinakailangan ko din gumawa din ng mga ganun para maiba, pero sa ngayon hindi ko pa kaya. Kailangan ko mag-aral umarte kasi hindi ko pa nako-consider yung sarili ko na actor at mahusay talaga sa artihan na ganyan. Madami pa akong kailangan matutunan. Pag natutunan, saka ko sasabakin para hindi naman mapahiya at masayang ko rin ang pagkakataon,” he said.

Vice said his onscreen chemistry with co-stars Toni Gonzaga and Luis Manzano are a big part of why the movie has done so well. “Kami naman ni Toni nung sinabing kasama si Luis sa project na ito okay kami kagad kasi masarap katrabaho yung kami-kaming magkakaibigan,” he added.

As one of the most popular gay entertainers in the country today, Vice Ganda isn’t ashamed to admit that he also had his share of heterosexual relationships. “Oo, nung high school at college. Apat hanggang limang girlfriends ako. Nararamdaman ko na rin ngayon na na-realize ko na nagka-girlfriends ako dati (laughs). Nakaka-appreciate pa rin ako ng kagandahan ng babae, hanggang ganun lang. Gusto ko sila pero hindi ko kayang umabot sa puntong makipagtalik sa kanila (laughs). Kaya napatunayan ko talaga na hindi ko na ito mababago, wala na talaga ako kasi nung napunta ako sa ganung punto na hindi ko kayang gawin. Pero may mga babae talaga akong nagagandahan na ang ganda nito, gusto ko ito. Kaya ko magkaroon ng girlfriend pero hindi ko talaga kaya makipag-sex,” he admitted.

Vice revealed that even up to now, people around him can still see his masculine side. “Marami akong kaibigan na nagsasabi na yung asta ko daw sa Showtime lalaking lalake pa rin, yung bargas. Kasi ang tagal kong lalake tapos nakatira ako sa isa namang hindi nakakaluwag-luwag na lugar, bargasan lang ang kilos. Hindi naman yung talagang pa-girl except sa pananamit ko na pinipilit ko magpa-girl. Lalake pa rin ako eh. Lalakeng-lalaki pa rin daw ako, wala akong bahid ng bakla. Lalo na pag kami-kami na lang kaya kung ang role lalake, kering-keri ko na yan. Wala na lang talaga yung kissing scene sa babae,” he admitted.
