Rufa Mae Quinto, who is currently part of the iWant original series Jhon En Martian, opened up about how motherhood changed her as a person including her perspective in life as an actress.
“Nag-change siya kasi meron na akong life besides show business. Kasi ang naging buhay ko talaga pag-aartista eh. Siyempre may family ako pero ang pag-aartista ang inasawa ko for so long. So ngayon, ‘yung binigay na ‘yung anak ko, medyo matagal naman na akong nakapag-artista marami na akong napatunayan, nagawa,” she said.
Quinto then went on: “So nung nag anak na ako ngayon, iba naman ‘yung feeling. ‘Yung parang never ka na mag-iisa, never kang walang gagawin, hindi ka puwedeng magutom, hindi ka puwedeng mag-lasing ng sobra-sobra kasi baka kailanganin ka. Kailangan gising ka. ‘Pag kinailangan ka, umiyak. ‘Yung parang inaayos din ng anak ang buhay ng ina.”
Rufa Mae Quinto has made a mark on local pop culture with her unforgettable lines such as the famous “Todo na ‘to!” and “Go! Go! Go!” from some of her iconic films in the past including the superhero movie Super B.
“Nag-Darna na ako dati sa GMA ‘yung Marian Rivera. Pero tinahi ko lang ‘yung damit ko,” she said.
Quinto, who felt sorry for Liza Soberano who had to withdraw from the highly-anticipated project, said she would rather want to see a Super B x Darna crossover.
“I’m sorry to hear that na-ano ‘yung kamay niya nabakle. Sayang naman. Baka puwede pa naman? Back-to-back [crossover]. Baka puwede si Super B at si Super D,” she said.
Nonetheless, whether she will snag the iconic superheroine role or not, she’s down to play any character as long as it’s a good project.
“Ako, puwede ako kahit ano basta text niyo lang ako. Basta magagandang proyekto, okay ako. I’m open to be working with anyone, anywhere,” she said.
Jhon En Martian streams starting April 14 on iWant.
