airing on Monday, September 2, Gerald Anderson shared that he’s happy at this point in his life. When asked what he learned after making it past the controversies that happened these past few months, he remarked, “I think ano eh
, through success and failure, just stay humble at huwag mong kalimtan kung sino ka.
On his new movie, Gerald said that he’s proud and glad to hear all the positive feedback about it. “Sobrang nakakataba ng puso, sabi nga nila lahat check ko daw ‘yung Twitter, ang gaganda ng sinasabi ng mga tao at grabe sobrang nakakataba talaga ng puso.”
The actor is thankful to Star Cinema for the chance to portray such a unique role like in OTJ. “Sobra akong blessed lang na binigay sa akin Star Cinema [ang role]”.” He shared that he just got a new movie offer again from the film outfit. “And they offered me a movie na ngayon ko lang naisip na papaano ko gagawin so very exciting rin ang dami kong dapat abangan. ‘Yung next movie ko hindi siya action, isa siyang kakaibang love story,” he added.
Last Thursday, August 29, he was surprised by his girlfriend Maja Salvador with a block screening for OTJ with everyone close to his heart in attendance. “Na-surprise ako kagabi kasi lahat ng ka-close ko nandon, it’s a big night at tsaka nag–enjoy ako. Nakakatuwa kasi lahat ng mga malalapit sa akin, mga bossings nanood sila ng OTJ.” He relayed that Maja really liked the movie. “Sobrang ganda daw, kung pwede lang siya mag-tweet sa akin sasabihin niyang sobrang ganda.”
Gerald Anderson also graced an event last August 30, Friday, at Kamuning Elementary School in line with Star Cinema’s 20th anniversary. Gerald joined a storytelling session in the said school. Star Cinema also organized a film viewing of the hit movie Must Be Love during the event. “Hindi ko in-expect na maging ganon sila ka energetic (pertaining to the students) pero ang galing kasi ang Star Cinema nagdala ng movie Must Be Love para sa mga bata so sobrang excited,” he said.
