Piolo Pascual to those calling him "gay:" "Sana kilala mo ako bago mo ako sabihan ng ganyan."

Piolo Pascual shrugs off comments saying that he is a homosexual: "Kinikibit-balikat ko na lang."



Piolo Pascual considers Dekada '70 (2002) as his breakthrough project that got him noticed in the highly competitive entertainment industry.

Since then, he has experienced becoming an actor, a recording artist and also a producer.

In an interview aired during the July 17 episde of Tapatan ni Tunying, Piolo admitted that being a producer is difficult work.

"Mahirap! Nakakasunog rin minsan. Masakit sa bulsa pero learning curve."

What does he consider as his dream project?

"Every project that I have is a dream project because it's a reflection of my character.

"It's an extension of my personality. That's what I do for a year. "


when asked about his role as a father in Hawak Kamay, the ultimate heartthrob said, "It's a bit of a stretch being a father to four kids pero at my age, aarte pa ba ako?

"Dun di naman ako papunta, e. Tatay naman ako ng 16-anyos na bata. Patatagalin ko pa ba?

"Bakit pa ako magpapa-tweetum? Hindi naman ako twenties. I want to be able to evolve."

Does he feel pressured for this upcoming project?

"Hindi ko na iniisip. Hindi ako makatulog, baka magka-eyebags ako!

"Nacha-challenge ako sa pressure ng ratings pero pag binigay sa iyo, naniniwala sa iyo na you can pull it off."



ON HANDLING CRITICISMS. When it comes to receiving praises, Piolo considers them as "blessings."

"Pero then again, pag uwi mo naman, they don't really know the real you.

"They know the actor, the celebrity pero only a few people know the real person."

What is the downside of being a celebrity?

"Hindi ako makatakbo, hindi ako maka bike. Hindi ako pwede makapunta sa mall nang mag-isa."

He then recalled an incident when he felt annoyed because of unruly fans.

"May mga nangungurot na akala stuffed toy ka. Minsan hindi mo maaalis ang mga tambay na kung ano-ano sinasabi. Minsan gusto mo na lang maghamon pero ikaw pa rin ang talo, e, so kibit-balikat na lang."

Did he ever answer back to someone who insulted him?

"Meron, minsan. Tapos mare-realize mo na walang patutunguhan.

"Pati social media, papatulan mo pero makikita mo rin na wala palang silbi ang paghahamon mo sa kanya.

"It's a waste of time."


When it comes to social media, Piolo revealed that he gave up using social networking sites Facebook and Twitter.

"I only do Instagram because I like taking photos.

"I like making a journal of what I do."

When it comes to online bashers, he says, "For a year, I was affected because may pinatulan nga ako na isa na bully.

"Ngayon kapag may ganun, I delete, I block, I report. I move on."

Does his son IƱigo ask him about the controversies facing him?

"Hindi. Kilala niya ako, mas naniniwala siya sa akin.

"Napipikon siya sa mga tao. Gusto niyang gumanti, lumaban, pero sabi ko it's not worth it.

"Sabi ko, 'nakita mo ba akong lumaban?' There are ways to go about it."

Does Piolo feel hurt by those saying that he is gay?

"Oo naman. Anong magagawa ko? Yun ang gusto ng tao so bahala kayo sa buhay n'yo.

"Siguro, isipin mo yun pero pasensiya ka na, hindi mo ako makukuha.

"Masakit, di ba? Pero parang sana kilala mo ako bago mo ako sabihan ng ganyan. Kinikibit-balikat ko na lang.

"Ang [mas] importante sa akin, kilala ko sarili ko, kilala ako ng Diyos ko, kilala ako ng pamilya ko, kilala ako ng anak ko."

Anthony Taberna asked: Can you tell God that you are not a homosexual?

"Oo," stated Piolo. "Bakit ako magpapaapekto? Masakit kung sa masakit. Parang gusto mong manapak pero anong mapapala ng pagsapak mo? Makasakit ka, nagkasala ka."

Is this gay issue the reason why he got into a fight in the past?

"Oo, yun lang naman, e. I've been in the business for almost 20 years. Hindi pa ba ako magsasawa?

"Kaya pag sa Instagram may ganun: delete, block, tapos.

"Masayadong maraming blessings sa buhay ko para mag-dwell ako sa mga ganung bagay."


During the interview, the 37-year-old actor also mentioned that he wants to marry a woman who is in her twenties since he still wants to father four more kids in the future.
