According to actress-turned-screenwriter Bela Padilla, Star Cinema’s upcoming movie Last Night, wants to send across to Filipino moviegoers ‘not to lose hope.’
“Ako personally hindi totoo ang konsepto ng wala ng pag-asa for me. ‘Yun ang gusto naming... ako personally, na gusto kong ma-realize ng mga tao na hindi totoo ‘yun. May pag-asa,” stated at the film’s bloggers’ conference on Sunday, September 17.
Meanwhile, speaking from her personal experience, Last Night’s lead actress Toni Gonzaga shared hope was something she did not let go of, even at the lowest point of her life when she was just starting her journey in the entertainment industry.
“When I was trying to get into the business parang every day pinapamukha sa’yo na this is not for you parang na-realize ko ‘yun when I was trying to get into the business. Parang this world will keep on pulling you down and it just wants you to be faced down every day and you just have to fight for it,” she shared.
Toni remarked that despite the difficulties one would face at some point of their lives, giving up should never be an option.
“Everyday bubugbugin ka ng negativity, everyday gusto niya gumagapang ka sa sahig, ‘yun ang pinaparamdan sa’yo ng mundo eh. Gusto niya bumagsak ka but it’s your personal choice to pick yourself up and move, run again, and finish your race, and never give up,” she said.
Toni’s leading man, Piolo Pascual, also shared his realizations about life and hope, saying that no difficulty should extinguish your desire to live.
“Kailangan mo lang talaga makahanap ng magandang rason kung ba’t gusto mong mabuhay di ba? And ‘yun nga marami talagang bagay sa mundo na pwede nating pagkapitan at kailangan positive ka, otherwise you know downward spiral. Kung depress ka, desperado ka or you live in a dark moment, you have to pick yourself up. You have to get out from that pain for you to become willing to live again,” Piolo stated.
