Vice Ganda reveals why he is currently ‘unhappy’


121815-vice1_main.jpgAlthough they are two of the biggest Kapamilya stars today, Beauty and the Bestie stars and real-life best friends Coco Martin and Vice Ganda still opt not to talk about their showbiz lives.

Not for any other mundane reason, but because, according to Coco, their friendship is “much personal” than their careers.

During the recently-concluded press conference of their upcoming Metro Manila Film Festival entry, the two lead stars shared that they have actually been friends even before they were big in the business, which has been roughly 15 years now.

Despite being best friends, Coco and Vice count their upcoming MMFF entry as their first big screen project.

"Dati akala ko mas marunong ako dito kay Coco. Pero na-realize ko, parang mas matalino sa akin itong si Coco. Hindi ko alam kung may natututnan siya sa akin sa pelikulang 'to, pero ako, meron akong natutunan sa kanya," started Vice.

While shooting the film, Vice shared that they had one “rare moment” as best friends while hanging out by the pool.

Eh siya kasi tuwing kakausapin niya ako laging serious. Laging ‘Oh kamusta ka? Magkano ang ipon mo ngayon? Magkano ang binabayad mo sa lalaki?’ Ganon siya lagi. Lagi siyang paaway sa akin. Laging akala mo ang laki ng kasalanan ko sa kanya,” shared Vice.

The Primetime Action King for hist par answered Vice’s “accusation” and reasoned that, “Sabi ko nga bilang magkaibigan kami ni Vice, marami siyang kaibigan sa trabaho, sa showbiz pero ako ang pagkakaibigan kasi namin personal.”

For the Ang Probinsyano star, asking about Vice’s personal life including his family, love life and even his savings means, “Kasi sabi ko nga ‘yung concern doon mas lumalabas eh.”

Alangan namang mag-chismisan kami tungkol sa ibang artista. Actually dahil nga don nababagot siya sa akin dahil kapag nakikita niya ako laging personal na buhay niya ang tinatanong ko,” said Coco.

Vice however quickly responded that Coco’s inquisitive nature sometimes pushes him to fabricate a lie. “Kasi minsan kapag ayaw niya ng naririnig niya, pagagalitan niya ako.”

Best friend’s advice
On a serious note, though, Vice said he confided in Coco his current state of “unhappiness.”

Sabi ko [kay Coco], 'Napapagod ako, nalulungkot ako. Eh kasi, sabi ko, tumatanda ako and parang ang dami kong nami-miss,” Vice said.

The It’s Showtime host then waxed nostalgic as he recalled the days when all he really wanted was to get a job in order to provide for the needs of his family.

Eh ngayon, kumita na tayo ng malaki pero bakit parang hindi ko pa rin magawa yung gusto ko? Hindi ko pa rin mabigay ‘yung talagang kailangan ng pamilya ko diba bukod doon sa mga materyal," asked Vice.

Coco’s explained that Vice’s sadness stems from the fact that he wants a lot of things and that he has “multiple sources of joy.”

Ako kasi, para hindi ako malungkot, itinanim ko na sa utak ko, ikinondisyon ko na yung sarili ko na yung itong pag-aartista ko, itong pagtratrabaho ko, ito ang makakapagpasaya sa akin."

"Kaya tuwing darating ako sa trabaho, kahit pagod na pagod ako, masaya ako, kasi alam ko sa puso ko, ito yung gusto kong gawin. Maliban sa pamilya ko, ito lang ang gusto kong gawin, at ito lang ang makakapagpasaya sa akin. Kaya 'di ako nalulungkot," he ended.

Watch best friends Coco and Vice in the upcoming MMFF entry Beauty and the Bestie starting December 25 in cinemas nationwide.
