Ivan Padilla on late grandmother Gloria Sevilla: "Grandma Gloria was one of the strongest and sweetest people I ever knew. Nothing scared her and she took such good care of me. I’ m just happy she and I got to spend time together since my moving to Philippines a few years ago."

Dinamdam nang husto ni Ivan Padilla ang pagpanaw ng veteran actress na si Gloria Sevilla noong April 16, 2022.

Ito ang dahilan kaya nag-deactivate siya ng lahat ng mga social media account niya.

Si Ivan ay apo ng pangalawang asawa ni Gloria na si Amado Cortez, Arsenio Padilla sa tunay na buhay, na pumanaw naman noong March 22, 2003.

Ipinagtapat ni Ivan sa exclusive interview ng Cabinet Files na lumaki siya sa piling ni Gloria, at ito ang dahilan kaya malaki ang epekto sa kanya ng pagkawala ng aktres na kilala bilang Queen of Visayan Movies.

Lahad niya, “When my grandma died, it really put me into a bad space mentally. I keep to myself with things like that so I deactivated social media.

“Grandma Gloria was one of the strongest and sweetest people I ever knew. Nothing scared her and she took such good care of me.

“I’ m just happy she and I got to spend time together since my moving to Philippines a few years ago.

"When I was a boy, grandma moved back to the Philippines from San Francisco, California.

“She loved acting so much and always told me to try to find something special in every role no matter how small or large the part.”

Bukod sa social media detox, ibinuhos ni Ivan ang panahon nito sa training ng Jiu-Jitsu martial arts para mabawasan ang pangungulila sa kanyang Grandma Gloria, pero nagkaroon naman siya ng pinsala.

Ayon kay Ivan, “I threw myself completely into Jiu-Jitsu, started training two times a day for 6 hours a day to prepare for the Philippine National team trials nung Sabado, May 28.

“Pero nasobrahan yata, I trained so hard I ended up tearing my bicep and not being able to compete.

“I just had an MRI and very likely going to have surgery. I’m just taking some time right now to heal my injuries, spend some time with my animals.

"And I’ve been eating a lot lately to get back to my normal weight, kasi I had to go down to 69 kg. from 76 for the tournament."

May promising Hollywood career si Ivan pero iniwan niya ito para subukan ang kanyang kapalaran sa Pilipinas.

Ang tunay na pangalang Germaine de Leon ang ginamit ni Ivan sa mga guesting niya sa U.S. television series na Dexter, CSI, Lucifer, Criminal Minds, Castle, at Blackbox TV.

Hindi itinanggi ni Ivan na nami-miss niya ang kanyang pamumuhay sa Amerika pero mas maligaya ang buhay niya ngayon sa Pilipinas.

“I do miss watching football with my buddies on Sundays and afternoon hikes at Griffith Park but I’m having a good time here in Manila.

“Viva has given me so many solid roles that I will never forget, Maria and Encounter were two of my favorites.

“I’m just so thankful that I’ve been given the opportunity to work with some of the best actors in the business.

“I’m so proud of some of the scenes that I’ve been a part of. I think of acting as more of a life of giving than taking so I’m going to keep trying to give the audience my best work as long as I can.”

Natawa naman si Ivan sa obserbasyon na siya ang aktor na may pinaka-photogenic butt dahil sa mga nude scene niya sa Vivamax movies na Eva at Breathe Again.

“Sinasabi ba nila ‘yan? I’m flattered!” tawang-tawang reaksiyon ni Ivan tungkol sa “photogenic butt” comments ng Vivamax viewers.

Pero iginiit niyang may limitasyon ang kanyang paghuhubad sa pelikula.

Sabi ni Ivan, “As an actor, I always try my best to honor the film by giving the role everything it requires of me but I do have my limits. Shirtless is fine but not full frontal.”
