Jose Sarasola on his family's reaction to Maria Ozawa: "I didn't think too much about anong isipin nila kay Maria dahil sa past niya, which they know her past. But thankful ako sa parents ko, very supportive. It's not an issue for them kung ano yung past ni Maria."


Ayaw nang isipin ni Jose Sarasola kung ano ang sasabihin ng ibang mga tao tungkol sa relasyon niya sa Haponesang si Maria Ozawa.

Si Maria, sa mga hindi nakakaalam, ay dating porn actress sa kanyang bansa, na lumabas sa maraming tinatawag na Japanese Adult Videos.

Si Jose naman ay Pinoy na may mixed Spanish blood sa ama, at isang dating contestant sa ABS-CBN reality show na Pinoy Fear Factor.

Noong nakaraang linggo ay inamin nina Jose at Maria ang kanilang relasyon sa pamamagitan ng Instagram.

Sa eksklusibong panayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), noong May 12 sa bar na pagmamay-ari ni Jose, sinabi ng huli: “Well… her past will always be an issue wherever we go naman talaga.

“Yung past will always be a big thing sa mga tao, especially sa mga Filipino.

“We always look sa past and, let’s be honest, mga judgmental talaga mga Filipino.

“But importante naman is, yun nga, as long as she’s down to earth, mabait siya, respectful sa parents ko, close siya sa mga kaibigan ko at tanggap siya ng family ko, yun naman importante.

“So I don’t really dwell on the people who talk bad about her and sa akin.

“It’s more of, like, not even an issue anymore.

“So it’s hard. Medyo kakaiba. Yun nga, adjustment.

“But then, I don’t really look into all the negative stuff.

“Mas importante na we’re happy.”

NEGATIVE COMMENTS. Hindi ba nag-alala si Jose na baka makarinig siya ng masasakit na salita o kaya'y maraming kalalakihan ang mainggit sa kanya?

Bagamat hindi na lumalabas sa porn videos si Maria, at may ilan na ring pelikulang pang-mainstream na ginawa sa Indonesia at Pilipinas, mas kilala pa rin ito bilang porn actress.

Pahayag ng chef at aktor: “I kinda had that impression na when I started going out with her.

“Nung una, hindi muna big deal sa akin.

“If I ever heard something bad or something was said, something was put in writing sa column, whatever, hindi ko ginagawang big deal masyado.

“Tina-try ko na i-avoid, huwag ko na basahin.

“Now, it kinda prepared me for the bigger news that came out, now that we’re together.

“So, hindi na ako ganun nabulaga. But it’s still, as I said, overwhelming.

“But then, it’s something that I can always, like, ‘Oh, narinig ko na ‘yan, e. Okay, sige.’

“More mga kung ano-ano sinasabi, pero it’s not really for me to dwell on it.

“As they say, it is what it is na, e. Yun na yun, e. Wala na tayo magagawa.

“Why would we bring back the past, kung ano man yung past niya?

“Importante naman is kung ano kami ngayon.

“So I don’t really dwell too much sa mga past, sa mga comments ng mga tao.

“I don’t read the comments, e, kasi useless naman. Hindi ko naman kilala ‘tong mga tao na ‘to.

“So no need to give it enough thought, na parang, ‘Ano kayang gagawin ko? Shall I reply back? Shall I say something back?’

“I don’t know naman these people, so not really a big factor naman sa akin.”

BASHERS. So far, ano ang pinakamatinding bashing na narinig o nakita niya sa social media?

Ayon kay Jose, “Well, I won’t say na lang what they said, but I’ve been getting a lot of hate mails, mga bastos and rude comments.

“I don’t read anymore the comments sa mga write-up sa Facebook. I gave up.

“I’m not gonna fight with someone who’s commenting behind the computer, I don’t even know living in some province.

“I don’t have to dwell on those things.

“But then, yung mga iba nagda-direct message sa Instagram…

“Kasi public pa yung Instagram ko, e. Minsan lumalabas sa feed ko, parang obligado ka mabasa mo mga sinasabi nila, e.

“Some are bastos talaga.

“Surprisingly, the bastos people and the rude people ay yung mga galing pa sa ibang bansa.”

Hindi mga Pinoy?

“The Filipinos, actually medyo supportive.

“Medyo baduy pero, ‘Wow! Taas mo yung bandila ng Pilipinas!’ Mga ganun!

“Nakakatawa, but ganun sinasabi nila.

“Yung mga Pinoy, very supportive.

“But yung ibang mga bansa, I won’t na lang name the country, kasi I have friends or family there, but may ibang mga bansa dun yung mga bastos na sinasabi na kung anu-anong mga bagay na hindi maganda.”

HIS FAMILY’S REACTION. Paano tinanggap ng kanyang pamilya ang relasyon nila ni Maria?

Saad ni Jose, “Nung una, I had doubts din, siyempre, only child ako.

“I’ve been single for a long time.

“If ever I got into a relationship with someone, especially someone like Maria, it won’t be an easy transition sa family.

“Kasi, parang naisip ko nung una, they might ask, ‘Who is she? What’s her job?’ Eventually, ‘What did she do before?’

“It’s normal to ask, e. Parents ko yun, e. Wala akong kapatid, e.

“Normal lang sa mga Pinoy family to check out everything sa girl.”

Patuloy niya, “Nung una, I had my doubts.

“But then, my dad naman is Spanish, my mom grew up naman in Canada. So we don’t have a typical Pinoy background family.

“Medyo very open-minded compared sa karamihan ng Filipinos na… I’m not saying naman na Filipinos aren’t open-minded...

“It’s just that if you’re an old-school Filipino family, kung may ganitong girl na medyo crazy yung past, it’s hard.

“But luckily, ako, parents ko, very open sa kanya.

“Basta, as I said kanina, she’s respectful sa parents ko, mabait siya sa magulang ko and lahat ng mga kaibigan ko.

“The past talaga wasn’t an issue.

“And I know naman when I introduced Maria to my parents, mabait naman si Maria talaga, e, very respectful.

“I didn’t think too much about anong isipin nila kay Maria dahil sa past niya, which they know her past.

“But thankful ako sa parents ko, very supportive. It’s not an issue for them kung ano yung past ni Maria.

“Ang importante, kung ano siya ngayon sa akin at sa family ko.”

MARIA'S FAMILY. Nakilala na rin ba niya ang parents at mga kamag-anak ni Maria?

Sabi ni Jose, “Not yet ‘cause they’re in Japan.

“We’re planning a Japan trip, so hopefully I get to meet her parents.

"But, sa ngayon, wala pa.

“She has a brother also in Japan, which di ko pa rin nami-meet.

“It’s more her meeting my side here in the Philippines, the Sarasolas, and being in Manila.

“Hopefully, in Japan, baka ma-reverse yung mangyari.

“Baka ako naman ipakilala sa mga friends and relatives niya.”

Is he ready for that?

“Ah, yeah!” bulalas ng chef at aktor.

“It’s gotta happen sooner or later, di ba?

“Kailangan mangyari din yun, e. Eventually I have to meet the side of her family.

“Siyempre, iba din yung mga Japanese.

“Medyo konting kabado, pero I think it will work out well naman.”
