I’m not big on local celebrities but I used to go Lady gaga on this one guy during my A Shoe Tale days. If you read that blog, I’m sure you’ll be very familiar with him (and okay, if you have reading skills, you would’ve read my title HAHA). Finally, after almost 4 long years of being part of the media, I finally had the chance to interview him. All thanks to Greenwich and their new over-loaded pizza. You can say I was full of overloaded kiligness that day! haha Here’s my 8 questioned 10 minute interview with my first love and first heartbreak – John Llyod Cruz. For all of you who are not familiar with Philippine showbiz, he’s a top leading man here in the country that’s famous for his very relatable romantic comedies like One More Chance. I’m over him na though, FYI.. but it’s still nice to rekindle this kind of first love one last time. hahaha
Before asking him all the questions his team asked me to prepare beforehand, I told that he was very VERY sungit (not nice and accommodating) the first time I met him. He was quite shocked I mentioned this but he replied with a very witty bola by saying, “I don’t believe you… because sa babaeing katulad mo, di ko yata kayang maging masungit.” Yup, for those 10 seconds, I felt like a Vern-JL love team shooting a movie scene. If you don’t believe me that he said that, show this to him and let him confirm it. HAHA! Anyway, so here’s the transcript of our interview:
Me: What’s your favourite Greenwhich overload pizza flavour?
JL: Uhh… yung signature eh.. the ultimate overload.
Me: I know that the pizzas they offer already comes with all the flavours everyone loves but if there’s one pizza flavour you’ll add, what would it be?
JL: wala eh. Para sakin, solved nako dun sa flavours pero if hum they will consider uhm, young thin crust. Especially I’m feeling on the heavy side that day. Have you tried their pizza thins?
Me: Yeah, that’s actually what they launched in the event where I first met you.
Me: What’s one thing you can never have enough of even if it’s overloaded?
JL: Travel? :) Movies?
Me: Now lets move to a bit more personal questions, If there’s one fashion advice you can give to guys out there? Since you know I’m a girl and I can’t really give advice to guys since I don’t know your sentiments.
JL: Uhm, maybe don’t try too hard. Stick to yourself and what you know is sincere about you. I’m all for comfort before fashion.
Me: Okay, what are 5 things every guy should have in their closet?
JL: Secrets! Dark secrets… hahaha More secrets. Pero the staples! A good pair of dark denims, chinos, nice cashmere pullover, a nice crisp white shirt and a navy jacket. Me: Interesting. Where’s your next dream travel destination?
JL: Since kakagaling ko lang sa city, uhm gustong gusto ko makapunta ng Croatia and Maldvies especially ngayon na lumulubog na siya. Tootoo ba yun?
Me: Maybe. Probably dahil sa global warming? haha! Favorite place in the world? JL: In my lovers arms? hahaha ultimate cheese! haha But ako, you can drop me anytime in New York because I’m very independent there and I like that. I like autumn in New York, young broadway. Just give me a house overlooking Central Park and I’m set.
Me: We have a lot in common pala! haha Okay, lastly, can we please take a selfie together?
JL: Okay sige, since sinugitan daw kits pero di parin ako naniniwala.
and here’s our selfie! haha
