Cristine Reyes is aware that people often perceive her as a bad girl.
But this kind of public perception does not seem to affect the 24-year-old Kapamilya actress.
At the press conference of Honesto yesterday afternoon, November 18, Cristine quipped, “Bad girl or good girl, I don’t mind. At least may title!”
She added, “Ako, hindi ko siya tinitingnan ‘yong title kasi medyo [astig] akong tao. Gusto ko nga ‘yong title na bad girl, e.”
However, Cristine was quick to tell the media that there were people who told her that she’s been changing.
“Pero mukhang sinasabi nila na good girl na raw ako,” she smiled.
The young actress then acknowledged the people around her who may have helped her to become a better person.
“With the guidance ng mga tao sa paligid ko, unti-unti kong nababago ‘yong mga bagay na hindi pala dapat ginagawa.
“Pero hindi ko sinasabi na perfect na ako ngayon, ha. Kasi, ngayon pa lang ako natututo,” she explained.
The younger sister of Ara Mina believes that it may have something to do with her roles in previous TV and movie projects.
She said, “Minsan kasi ang mga tao, sa sobra nilang pinapanood ang isang tao o isang artista, feeling nila, kung ano ‘yong pino-portray na role, ‘yon siya.
“E, di ba, before ang mga pino-portray ko ay mga love scene, adult films. So, parang ganun nga.”
CHANGING PERCEPTION. This is one of the reasons why Cristine thinks that Honesto came her way at the perfect time.
“So sa tingin ko, sa Honesto, baka pwedeng mabago ang perception nila and all,” said Cristine.
She added, “Siguro kaya rin ako nasa Honesto kasi bagay na bagay ako kasi sobrang honest ako.”
The former Bukas na lang Kita Mamahalin star will join the cast of ABS-CBN’s family drama this week.
She will be adding mystery to the thickening plot of Honesto, which stars new child actor Raikko Mateo.
Cristine will play the role of Marie, the mysterious young lady whom Hugo (played by Joel Torre) hired to take care of his son Diego (played by Paulo Avelino).
As Marie enters the lives of the Layers and Galangs, witness the changes she is about to bring in the lives of father-and-son Diego and Honesto.
Get to see Cristine’s character in Honesto, the timely drama series that shares the value of honesty and kindness, weeknights after TV Patrol on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida.
