Sofia Andres has admitted that she once considered leaving showbiz for good, especially after the negative side of celebrity life reared its ugly head.
The actress has been the subject of much controversy and bashing in the past couple of months: first, when a group of bloggers came after her for her “attitude”, and second when her on-screen partner Diego Loyzaga announced their split.

“Dumaan ako sa point na sinabi ko sa sarili ko na, 'Itutuloy ko pa ba?' Kasi parang nakaka-torture,” she told PEP, “Iniisip ko na lang na, ‘what more 'yung mga veterans, what more ‘yung mas mga sikat?’ They're experiencing much worse na pamba-bash.”
"What more ako na baguhan lang?,” she continued, “[Kaya] siguro ako, hangga't kaya pa, mananatili ako sa showbiz."
As for now though, Sofia is taking some time off projects to recharge.
"Right now, I'm not doing anything, kasi gusto ko munang magpahinga at mag isip-isip for a while...kaya naman ngayon, I'm resting. In a couple of months, I'm ready to work again for a new project."
Sofia starred in the hit fantasy series “Bagani” alongside Liza Soberano, Enrique Gil, Matteo Guidicelli, and Makisig Morales. She also topbilled the hit drama “Pusong Ligaw.”
