Alessandra De Rossi explains why she said she wanted to quit showbiz

 

On Tonight with Boy Abunda, Alessandra de Rossi and Empoy Marquez expressed their gratitude and happiness over the box-office success of their film Kita Kita.

“Tito Boy, ginawa lang po namin yung part namin dito sa movie na ito. Pero hindi po namin inakalang yayakapin po ito ng sambayanang Pilipino’t mamahalin po yung loveteam namin,” Empoy acknowledged.


If they were to be given the chance to work in another movie together, Alex shared, “Since yung una naming ginawa ay romcom, mas malapit sa kanya sa mga normal na ginagawa niya, punta naman tayo sa ginagawa ko. Yung talagang heavy drama. Gusto kong makita si Empoy na naglulupasay. Kasi kailangan pa iba-iba, kasi pag hindi pa iba-iba magsasawa sila.”

During their guesting on Gandang Gabi Vice, Alex said something in the lines of her wanting to quit the showbiz industry at a certain point next year.

She clarified on TWBA though, “No, joke yun. Kasi parang nagtatanong kami sa mga ALEMPOYers doon so na-stress ako. So parang sabi ko, kayo ba ay nangangarap na (kasi pag may loveteams kailangan magkatuluyan, magagalit ang fans). Oo daw, gusto daw magkatuluyan kami. So sabi ko, ‘Oh di good for you, marunong kayong magmahal.’

She then jokingly stated, “Buti na lang magku-quit ako next year!”

Alessandra explained, “Yun lang yung joke na yun. Although ako naman, every year, actually every two months, lagi kong sinasabing, ‘Quit ako next time. Last project ko na ito, ayaw ko na. Lagi akong ganoon kasi nga napapagod ako sa mundo ng showbiz sa ka-showbizan ng mga tao. Napapagod talaga ako minsan kaya lang nangingibaw yung, ‘mahal kong umarte.’”

The actress then got emotional when asked what she deserves in life. “Support from friends, family, dahil para akong batang tinapon mo sa mundong hindi mo alam kung paano gumalaw.”

If God were to grant her one wish right now, she shared, “Maibili ko ng ticket yung mga parents ko, pamilya ko, papunta dito para mapanood nila yung pelikula ko – one day, one day. Ito yung moments na forever mo siya maaalala kahit matanda kana’t sana nakasama mo pamilya mo.
