Whenever Hollywood stars promote their new movies in Asia, Marie Lozano is one of the lucky few who gets to do a sit-down interview with them. In the span of her career as a reporter, Marie has interviewed Wolverine star Hugh Jackman not once but twice! She also met Chris Pratt recently for the promotion of the second installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy film. She also had the opportunity to interview Star Wars: Rogue One star Felicity Jones, Jurassic Park actor Jeff Goldblum and Bourne Legacy's Matt Damon. Marie Lozano's life is totally every fanboy and fangirl’s definition of a life goal.
?Sweeter the second time around! I was scheduled to interview Hugh Jackman again and I had this whole speech planned to remind him of when I met him a year and a half ago when he posted the painting of my late brother Jeffrey on his social media. To my surprise when I walked in, he remembered me! He said, “Of course! How can I forget?” I waited a year and a half to thank him personally for honoring the memory my brother Jeffrey. Hugh told me, “It was honestly my honor, my pleasure.” So many of you reached out to my family and I, telling us how you admired Jeffrey's incredible spirit in learning how to paint with his mouth when he lost the use of his hands and feet. Thank you again to all of you for the kinds words. After 17 years, Hugh is saying goodbye to Wolverine, but he told me that his character won't ever leave him. Just like how Jeffrey will never leave me. His spirit will live on in my heart. I wanted to share this to those who have lost someone dear to them too. ????
I am overwhelmed reading thousands of heartwarming comments about my brother Jeffrey on Hugh Jackman's social media pages. Thank you again for your kindness and compassion @thehughjackman It was fate that I got the assignment to interview Hugh on the day of Jeffrey's second death anniversary. I simply wanted him remembered by giving one of his mouth paintings of Wolverine to Wolverine himself. I did not expect that he would be honored throughout the world with this small gesture. Jeffrey to me is a real life superhero. He had an unwavering spirit to take on life's battles. Hugh's character was an inspiration to my brother and I didn't expect to inspire the man that inspires millions with Jeffrey's story. The messages mean a lot to my family & I. Thank you for helping his spirit live on! @thehughjackman with @repostapp. ··· Today I had the great pleasure of meeting this lovely lady, Marie Lozano from the Philippines. Her brother, Jeffrey, had Down Syndrome. He passed away 2 years ago. Marie shared with me that one of Jeffrey's joys in life was painting. When he lost the use of his hands he continued to paint with the brush in his mouth. I accept this gift in Jeffrey's honor. May his spirit live on.
