How does Dennis Trillo maintain his hunky figure and youthful looks?
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) recently had the chance to chat with the 36-year-old actor during a press junket for his GMA-7 teleserye, The One That Got Away.
He said, “Kailangan mo lang alagaan ang sarili mo, kumain ka nang tama.
“Basta maingat lang ako sa nilalagay ko sa katawan ko, yung mga masusustansiyang pagkain.
“Minsan siyempre hindi maiiwasan na may junk food ka, pero mas lamang dapat yung mas healthy na pagkain, 'tapos sasamahan mo ng exercise siyempre.”
How often does he work out?
“Pag walang taping, iyon.
“Si Jen kasabay ko palagi mag-workout.
“Para hindi nakakatamad pag mag-isa ka lang, e. Maganda pag may kasabay ka,” he enthused.
Dennis works out twice or thrice a week.
We teased him that maybe being inspired also helps him look good. He agreed.
IMAGE. His character in the series is Liam. Does he and his real-life persona have similarities?
He confessed, “Sa totoo lang malayo, malayung-malayo.
“Kasi si Liam, siya yung ina-aspire ng bawat babae. Siya yung ideal na lalaki—edukado, maayos yung itsura, mayaman, wala ka nang hahanapin pa, almost perfect.”
Although some people may say that he fits the image perfectly, the Kapuso star—who finished Bachelor of Arts in International Studies at Miriam College—disagreed.
He clarified, “Ako? Hindi, hindi ako ganun.
“Gusto kong maging ganun pero alam mo yun, hindi naman tayo perfect, e, di ba?
“Pero tina-try nating maging ganun so kaya ko nasabi na medyo malayo.”
What part of his screen role does he like best?
“Siguro yung pakikipag-eksena sa kanilang tatlo, yung pagkakaroon ng tatlong leading ladies na magkakaiba.
“Dahil iba rin yung challenge na meron kang tatlong relationships, tatlong relationships sa leading ladies, so iyon siguro.”
In The One That Got Away, Dennis has three leading ladies, namely: Rhian Ramos as Zoe, Max Collins as Darcy and Lovi Poe as Alex.
BUSINESS VENTURES. It's not surprising to know that Dennis has ventured into some business investments, although he seemed quite modest about them, and didn't want to divulge details.
He also said that he and his girlfriend Jennylyn Mercado are planning to have a joint business venture soon, but didn't want to jinx the idea.
He pleaded, “Pero huwag muna nating pag-usapan yun kasi baka maudlot, e. Plano pa lang.”
