Jake Cuenca met one of the biggest stars in Hollywood while he was studying in New York. In an episode of Cinema One Exclusive, the actor revealed that he met Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. there.
"Nong nag-aral ako sa New York ng acting, 'yung first activity namin sa school manood ng premiere night ng The Judge so nag Q and A kami mga estudyante sa school kay Robert Downey Jr.," Jake shared.
He added that he was really star struck when he saw the Iron Man star. Jake relayed that Robert in real life is similar to his character Tony Stark.
"Maliit lang siya eh pero super gwapo so talagang masta-starstruck ka talaga. Pero kung ano siya sa movie, kung ano siya as Tony Stark, ganon siya sa totoong buhay. Kung paano siya magsalita, 'yung hindi siya komportable na nakaupo so papalitan niya 'yung chair, gusto niya komportableng-komportable siya," he said.
Jake studied intensive method acting workshop at the prestigious Lee Strasburg Theater and Film Institute in New York in 2014.
The actor stayed in the Big Apple to study for one month.
