Andi Eigenmann on her love life: ‘It’s peaceful and quiet’
060416-andi_main.jpgIn her interview on Tonight with Boy Abunda, Andi Eigenmann admitted that she almost quit showbiz. “I’ve been parang away from work for a while and then to myself instead of being sad or disappointed in this or forcing it you know what, maybe it’s just that my time is done and I know that it’s normal. I entered the industry knowing that I may wake up one day and tapos na. And so nung naramdaman ko yun parang naisip ko alam mo okay lang, if it’s not meant to be its not meant to be. Maybe there’s something else for me and so I decided to do other things you know, parang soul searching. And then slowly but surely, during that time off, I can say I think I found myself in the course of travelling, spending time with my daughter, working on moving in to my own home by myself. I found myself and I realized I found myself just being so genuinely happy and content with my life.” 

But then, Andi said, “there was still one thing missing.” Asked what it was, Andi says, “ showbiz.” “That I realized that it’s going to be so heartbreaking for me to have to admit to myself that it’s over because I’m so passionate with what I do.” 

The actress said she realized that instead of quitting, she found what she’s meant to do in this industry. “I would just like to be able to help become a voice to alternative cinema, to independent film makers, to aspiring film makers like me and then the opportunity came and then I realized okay so maybe this is my purpose.” 

She was also asked why her love life these days is “relatively quiet.” Andi said, “I guess because it’s peaceful and quiet.” 

On the segment Fast Talk, she says her last message to Jake Ejercito was, “Can I set a meeting with you? This weekend.”
