Why Kim Chiu won’t choose a man over her family


100215-KIM_main.jpgAt a bloggers conference with Kim Chiu for the movie Etiquette for Mistresses, the actress shared how close her personality is to her character Ina when it comes to love.

Magmahal? Siguro mga 70%. Kasi mahal ko ‘yung family ko eh kaya ko rin ginagawa ‘to,” she replied. 

As for the remaining 30%, she said, “’Yun ‘yung hindi ko naman pipiliin ‘yung lalaki more than my family. Kasi ang family nandiyan talaga ‘yan para sa’yo and kahit anong mangyari, bumagsak ka man, tumayo ka man, nadapa ka man, ang family mo talaga nandiyan. ‘Pag bumalik ka sa kanila, kahit gaanong kalaki ang kasalanan mo, tatanggapin ka pa rin nila. Pero ‘yung lalaki, hindi masyado.” 

Stressing that she will never choose a man over her family, she explained, “Kasi family ko talaga, they’re my source of strength and my inspiration. And kung gaano ako ka-hardworking ngayon, dahil ‘yun sa kanila para mabigyan ko sila ng magandang buhay. Eh ang lalaki madami namang lalaki sa mundo.”

Meanwhile, Kim shared why she is proud of Etiquette for Mistresses. “Kasi I’m Cebuana, di ba? So taga-Cebu ako dito, nagbi-Bisaya ako and kumanta din ako dito. Parang first time kong maexperience na mag-soundtrack sa isang pelikula. May dalawang Bisaya songs ako dito,” she said.
