New Kapamilya actress Janine Gutierrez recently delighted her fans with her appearance in PUSH Bets Live, wherein she enthusiastically answered questions regarding her latest film project “Dito at Doon”, how her life went during the pandemic, and her stint in ASAP Natin ‘To.
It can be recalled that she shocked showbiz aficionados with her sudden move to ABS-CBN last January. And as what we’ve mentioned, she’s yet to astound us in her starring role in the TBA Studios movie “Dito At Daan” directed by seasoned director JP Habac. Situated during the time of pandemic, it will show how love or relationship will work between two people despite the difficult situation brought by the current times.
According to Janine, she could actually identify with her character Len, a teaching assistant and a certified ‘NBSB’ (or ‘no boyfriend since birth’). Just like her, we all know how outspoken the actress is when it comes to her thoughts and opinions in social media. Thus, she’s pleased to portray a character that has the similar personality as her in real life, which is a first time for her. And since they were forced to do lock-in tapings in, the versatile actress shared that the new normal setup paved the way for the cast and crew to bond more and be closer to one another.
Meanwhile, when it comes to her ASAP Natin ‘To gig, she related how much she missed being part of a variety show, so she’s very happy that everyone was very accepting and welcoming. She also disclosed being a self-confessed Popster, that’s why she’s looking forward to working with the one and only Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo. But aside from her, the 31-year-old actress is also excited to work with many other Kapamilya artists, such as Anne Curtis, Angelica Panganiban, and Charlie Dizon, to name a few.
When it comes to showing her love to her loved ones, Janine said that the whole pandemic has been and is still an adjustment period for her. She said that all of us had to make extra efforts just to express our love to the people around us.
It’s not also a secret that Janine has been in a strong and happy relationship with actor Rayver Cruz. She described their relationship as effortless, meaning that their relationship doesn’t give them any reason to find it hard to love each other.
They then proceeded to the popular “Trotropahin o Jojowain Challenge”, wherein she commented whether she sees a Kapamilya actor only as a friend or as a boyfriend material. The first guy was her love team partner in “Dito at Doon,” JC Santos, who would be “jojowain” for her since based on her experience in working with JC, she can say that he’s a gentleman and very generous. He’s also amazed at how he is as a person and how he loves his family so much.
Next was Paulo Avelino who’s also “jojowain” for her as she finds him very charming. Joshua Garcia is also “jojowain” since the actor is very talented and friendly, as well as Alden Richards because he’s very sweet and very fun to be with and to talk to. The same for Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin star Sam Milby who she sees very handsome and a nice guy.
However, when it comes to Gerald Anderson, Janine commented “trotropahin” since he’s the best friend of Rayver. Even though she has not met John Lloyd Cruz yet, she admitted being a big fan of him and has already watched all of his movies, he’s still “trotropahin” for her.
With regards to King of Hearts Daniel Padilla, she revealed that her mother Lotlot de Leon and his mom Karla Estrada are actually friends, not to mention that she’s a KathNiel fan, that’s why he’s “trotropahin” for her. The same goes for James Reid, who she also finds as someone fun to talk to because he knows a lot especially in music, as well as with Enrique Gil since she’s been a LizQuen fan.
