In her latest film Love or Money, Angelica Panganiban plays the role of a jaded woman named Angel. But unlike her onscreen character, the Kapamilya actress is currently happy with her love life after revealing last January that she is now in a relationship with non-showbiz boyfriend Gregg Homan.

“Parang sabi ko nga, kung kailan ako sumaya sa buhay ko, palagi niyo akong pinapaiyak (laughs). Dun ako medyo nahirapan kasi masaya yung buhay mo tapos kung anu-anong emosyon yung pinapasok mo sa isip mo para umiyak ka. So yun yung mas challenge. Yun lang siguro yung mahirap na part,” she said during the Love or Money virtual presscon.

Known to have been in very public relationships in the past with fellow actors John Lloyd Cruz, Derek Ramsay, and Carlo Aquino, the Love or Money star shared the biggest lesson from these failed relationships.

“Na unahin yung sarili. Parang kahit anong mangyari parang ayokong mawala yung ininvest ko sa sarili ko. Sa lahat ng natutunan ko, parang unahin yung sarili, yung respeto sa sarili. Parang hindi na pala yun puwede mawala kahit gaano ka ka in love dito sa taong ‘to. Mas importante dapat mas mahal mo pa rin sarili mo. Una lagi yung sarili,” she admitted.

When asked to share advice for those with a broken heart, the 34-year-old actress said she can relate to the feeling of almost losing hope.

“Parang di ko alam kasi sumuko din naman ako. Umabot din naman ako sa point na ayoko na. Parang nakakapagod na rin yung relasyon. Magsisimula ka na naman, kikilalanin mo, e-estimahin mo, pakikisamahan mo so parang hay nakakapagod yan tapos hindi mo alam kung ano yung pinapasok mo, eto na ba yun or masasaktan ka lang ulit? Para kang tumatalong… para kang mag-bu-bungee jumping or tatalon ka sa eroplano, ganun yung pakiramdam niya na parang, wala kung hindi ko ito gagawin manghihinayang ako. Choice siya eh. Lahat naman tayo may choice. Parang, ano bang gusto mo? Masaya ka na mag-isa o masaya ka na meron kang kasama?” she said.

Angelica said that at the end of the day, finding the right person and getting hurt again was still a risk she was willing to take.

“Mahirap maging single. Mahirap din magkaroon ng relasyon. So parehas siyang mahirap. Parang mahirap magpapayat, mahirap din maging obese. Nakakatamad mag-exercise pero parang it’s a matter of choice lang talaga, kung ano talaga yung magpapasaya sa iyo. So parang umabot lang siguro ako sa point na parang bakit hindi ko subukan? Bakit ko kayang mag-take ng risk noon sa mga maling tao and baka ma-miss ko yung opportunity ko sa tamang tao? Kailangan ko lang talagang mag-take ng risk and i-enjoy lang,” she added.

Love or Money starts streaming on March 12, with tickets available through KTX.ph, TFC, and SkyCable Pay-Per-View.
