Maine Mendoza very much aware there's no forever in showbiz

While she's in showbiz, Maine Mendoza always reminds herself: "Hindi ka dapat malunod."


Whether it's destiny or luck or perfect timing that propelled her to stardom, Maine Mendoza said the phenomenal success of AlDub, her love team with Alden Richards, will always be a mystery to her.

From their Eat Bulaga! Kalyeserye, the two topbilled Imagine You and Me in 2016 as well as the TV series Destined To Be Yours in 2017.

"Sobrang bilis talaga ng mga nangyari sa amin ni Alden, lalo na po sa akin.

"Two years pa nga lang ako, ganito na, sunud-sunod," she told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in a recent interview.

She has also remained among the country's top endorsers.

In fact, CDO Funtastyk Young Pork Tocino, which credits Maine as the reason its product became a top-selling brand, renewed her contract.

Maine continued, "Nakakatuwa po kasi patuloy pa rin silang nagtitiwala sa akin.

"First year ko pa lang sa showbiz, nakuha na nila ko.

"Hanggang ngayon."

But what was it that made her a formidable force in social media? Her recent Maldives photos, for instance, became viral.

Maine's consistent answer, "Parang hindi ko pa rin ma-fathom kung ano ba ang meron. Bakit ako?

"Honestly, hindi ko po alam.

"Parang isang question sa akin yun na hindi ko po masasagot."

Her recent billboard made use of the line, "Iba talaga pag forever young."

We focused on the word "forever." Has she found him?

She simply smiled, and referred to her latest campaign for the brand, “Very unique ng concept. Parang ilo-launch nila na very mysterious sa tao.

"Kung ano nga ba ‘to, anong klaseng beauty product na bandang huli, malalaman nila na tocino pala, pagkain."

Now talking about a different kind of "forever" and totally evading the question, Maine said that she's a realist and knows that showbiz is not forever.

"Kasi po, hindi ko naman pinangarap na mapunta sa ganitong posisyon.

"Kasi, akala po siguro ng iba, madali siya, very relaxed. 

"Akala po siguro nila, puro glitz and glamour, walang paghihirap sa ganitong buhay. 

"Siyempre, meron din po siyang downside ng pagiging artista."

And one reason Maine has always seemed unaffected by the drastic changes in her life, "Siguro ito yung isang bagay na hindi ka dapat malunod.  

"Kasi, pana-panahon lang din naman po ‘yan.

"Ang sa akin na lang, habang nasa ‘yo, enjoy mo.” 

Smiling again, she tried promoting the brand she's endorsing,  “Pero sa tocino po, may forever kasi...Forever Young lang talaga...Sobrang daling lutuin pa kasi no need to boil siya..."

This writer threw in, "So walang forever talaga sa showbiz?"

Maine ended, "Siguro po, yung mga sumusuporta sa amin ni Alden."
