JM de Guzman said he was "overwhelmed" by the premiere-night atmosphere when he faced members of the media after his hiatus from showbiz.
The comebacking actor was present during the January 23 premiere night of Mr. and Mrs. Cruz held at SM Megamall.
This romance movie is top-billed by ABS-CBN actor JC Santos and GMA-7 actress Ryza Cenon. Directed by Sigrid Andrea Bernardo, the film was shot in Palawan.
"JC Santos is a very good friend of mine," said JM about the actor who is a fellow alumnus of Dulaang UP.
What is his secret to looking very handsome now?
"Stay away from bad things," said JM with a laugh.
As most people know, JM developed a drug addiction that led to him being killed off from his 2012 show, Angelito: Bagong Yugto.
He recovered. But, unfortunately, he suffered a relapse and was again removed from his own show, All Of Me, in 2015.
