After working on a project that dealt with domestic abuse in the VIvamax film Silip Sa Apoy, Jela Cuenca said she was lucky to not have experienced that in real life even though she became witness to it from her parents. 

“Never pa naman ako naka-experience ng ganung situation. So far I’m so lucky na hindi ko na-try yun and ayoko siya ma-try. Sa mama ko siguro siya yung naka-try nun and super sakit para sa akin yun so sana ‘wag ako magaya sa kanya. Bale yung papa ko kasi napaka-violent and nambubugbog talaga siya and super happy ako nung naghiwalay sila para mawala na yung sakit na nararamdaman ng mom ko. Parang nadala ko na siya so parang nasanay na ako. Nung naghiwalay sila, naging masaya kami and may time na gusto nilang magkabalikan pero ayaw ko,” she revealed.

With her co-star Angeli Khang’s character in Silip Sa Apoy getting abused by her husband (played by Sid Lucero), Jela said she hopes women who watch the film can learn to be better when it comes to choosing their partner. 

Ang mapapayo ko sa mga girls na binubugbog ng kanilang partner is pag ginaganun na sila, pag sinasaktan na sila, it’s not healthy for them and kailangan siguro sana maisip nila na mahalaga yung sarili nila and pag ganun, it’s better to leave na lang. Kasi pag ganun red flag na agad yun,” she said.

After doing another successful project with Vivamax, Jela said she hopes viewers can learn something about self-love after watching the sexy drama. 

After this movie, siguro ang mapupulot nila dapat alamin muna nila yung papasukan nila kasi hindi basta basta pag nandun ka na mismo sa sitwasyon na yun, dapat alamin nila yung value ng sarili nila para at least pag nandun na sila, okay yung kahihinatnan ng buhay nila,” she said. 

Watch Ricky Lee’s masterpiece Silip Sa Apoy exclusively on Vivamax. Starring Angeli Khang, Paolo Gumabao, Sid Lucero, and Jela Cuenca. Directed by McArthur Alejandre.
