Dennis Trillo's sexy dance sequence in one particular episode of the afternoon drama Magdusa Ka caused quite a stir. StarTalk was able to corner Dennis while shooting the film I.T.A.L.Y, and asked him whether he was ready to shed his boyish image for a more daring role.
Dennis, who looked quite unsure, said "Siguro willing, pero hindi naman ganoon eksaktong eksena. Siguro puwede naman na i-showcase yung iba ko pang talent sa ibang paraan, di ba?"
Dennis also said that he has no plans to reveal more of himself and join the "daring bandwagon"—a move previously made by fellow Kapuso actor Dingdong Dantes, who recently showed skin in Bench's billboards. But he hinted that it might be possible.
"Siguro in time," Dennis said. "Pero kasi nakita ko yung mga gawa ni ‘Dong, e. Medyo hindi ko pa kaya, na medyo ganoong ka-daring. Siguro pag dumating yung trabaho na kailangan mong gawin yun, siguro kung wala na akong choice talaga, e, kaya. Pero ngayon, ayokong makipagsabayan sa kanya dahil siya na yun ,e."
CARLENE AGUILAR. Carlene Aguilar's recent announcement that she would join show business raised interest among fans about a possible team-up with Dennis. How is Dennis taking this? Is it possible for him and his ex-girlfriend to team up in future projects?
"Hindi ko alam, pero siguro moral support na lang muna dahil hindi ko alam kung ready ako na makasama siya sa isang eksena o anong project. May sari-sarili naman kaming career, e, and siguro hindi naman kailangan na magsama if ever na mapunta siya sa showbiz, di ba?"
Aside from Carlene's plan to join showbiz, news also came out that Carlene is again accepting suitors. Does Dennis have any reaction to this?
"Hindi ko na pinahihimasukan yung part na yun sa personal niyang buhay," Dennis answered. "Kumbaga, lahat naman tayo may karapatan lumigaya and she deserves it so, kung meron man, e, di, bakit hindi? Tutal, maayos naman kami and magkaibigan naman kami."
RUFA MAE QUINTO. Dennis was quite surprised to learn about his supposed tampuhanwith I.T.A.L.Y co-star Rufa Mae Quinto, which she revealed last week.
"Sumama loob niya?" Dennis asked, looking surprised. "Matagal na rin yun, e, at ayoko nang ungkatin kung ano nangyari."
When asked if they are okay now, he replied, "Okay na. Actually noong last Sunday nag-usap na kami."
Rufa Mae's revelation fueled speculations that she is again showing special interest on Dennis. What can Dennis say about these speculations?
"Siguro," he joked, "hindi ko masabi, e, siguro itanong mo sa kanya."
In a more serious tone he continued, "Pero kahit sinong tao naman na pag may taong kino-consider ka as something special, e, alam mo na, na kahit papaano ay matutuwa ka rin, di ba? It's flattering."
