Robin Padilla announced at the “Sana Dalawa Ang Puso” grand media launch last Saturday, January 13, that he is willing to do anything, even show skin (and a little more, if you catch my drift), if his work demanded it of him.
The press asked if he is willing to show his derriere on-screen and the actor said, “Pwede din naman akong frontal,” bringing the whole room to a fit of laughter.
“Ako, magsi-singkwenta na 'ko eh. Isipin niyo, 50 ka na, pinag-iinteresan ka pang makita ‘yung pwet mo tsaka frontal? Edi maging proud ka, ‘di ba?” he said.
The action star admitted that he felt like he couldn’t refuse anything his directors asked him to do, seeing as he recently became active in showbiz again.
“Ako naman, bakit ko naman babarilin ‘yung mga idea ng mga bagong direktor? Ang KJ ko naman,” he said.
“Kumbaga, kung inabot nila ako dun sa kasagsagan ko, baka matanggap nila kapag, ‘Ayokong gawin ‘yan. Ayokong gawin ‘yan. Ayokong gawin ‘yan,’” he continued. “Siguro maiintindihan ako ng mga bagong direktor. Pero coming out from nowhere, babalik ka rito at sasabihin mo sa mga bagong direktor, ‘Ayokong gawin ‘yan,’ eh iisa ang sasabihin nun - ‘Ay may sira ang ulo itong matanda na ‘to.’ ‘Yun lang ang akin.”
Robin used his experience on his recent film “Unexpectedly Yours” with Sharon Cuneta as an example.
“Kahit si Direk Cathy (Garcia-Molina) tanungin niyo, hindi nagdalawang-salita ‘yun,” he shared. “‘Tanggalin mo ‘yung shorts mo’ - alright! Wala nang arte-arte pa.”
He clarified that he is willing to do anything, so long as the necessity for it would be explained to him.
