More than 20 years years since Piolo Pascual joined showbiz, he still has the same effect on ladies.
Aminin, ang pogi pa rin ni Papa P!
Now 40 years old, the Kapamilya hunk doesn't seem to age.
His secret? He tries to lead a stress-free life as much as possible.
In fact, he doesn't let work-related stress ruin his day.
"I’ve learnt to not take my work home. Iniiwan ko sa set. Pagkatapos magtrabaho, uuwi ako sa bahay.
"Wala akong stress. Hindi ko ini-stress ang sarili ko."
Piolo also goes for simple joys in life.
If he wants to de-stress, he bikes or runs.
If he's tired, he catches some sleep.
The dad of Iñigo also does not also believe in restricting himself
His diet, for instance, “Walang bawal sa akin," he said.
Piolo continued, "I can eat anything. Malakas akong kumain, sobra. Kaya malakas akong magworkout.
"Ayokong i-deprive ang sarili ko. For me, eating is a reward.”
Does he cook? Not really.
Piolo took a few cooking lessons, but his skill so far is limited to cooking his "comfort food."
He said, “Pag nasa bahay lang ako, comfort food ko yung nailuluto ko. Gisa-gisa, konting sibuyas,” referring to corned beef.
Luckily, he was tapped to endorse Highlands Gold Corned Beef, which, according to Piolo, is not not "only 100 percent beef, but made with Angus beef."
This interview took place at a studio in Makati during his pictorial for the said brand.
When asked about his list of "most important things in life," the Kapamilya leading man answered, "food intake and the kind of life that I live..."
And "reward" is an important part of his day.
“...Parang for me, I treat myself to a reward. Something that is precious."
The topic jumps to social media. Isn't he affected by the mean comments?
Piolo sees them as platform where he can share himself, and not to read about people's comments about him.
“People nowadays like it raw, like it real,” he says.
“Me as a host, a singer, an actor. It’s different characters. But what you put out there, it’s you, yourself.
"It’s private, but it’s personal."
But among the lessons that he initially learned from showbiz was embracing what being a celebrity is about.
"I wanted to share my life. I want people to identify with me," he ended.
