The netizens went wild when a video of JM De Guzman professing his feelings for Arci Munoz went viral. Well, it’s a prank! In this episode, JM clarified once again that it was just part of a gimmick for the wedding proposal of Arci’s brother.
JM and host Toni Gonzaga then had a recap of their last interview wherein he and Arci shared their experiences training for the Philippine Air Force. They have finished the course and are now enlisted officers. JM said it’s his way of giving back.
Looking at his stellar career, one could say that JM is a blessed man, although there was a point when he saw himself unworthy. Learning to count his blessings, he now believes he deserves the good things coming his way. And he takes care of them by loving himself better and keeping the passion for his craft.
Init sa Magdamag brings JM another level of fulfilment as he plays the multifaceted character of Peterson. “Sa pag-tackle ko sa role, may mga natutunan din ako sa sarili ko like paano ako magmahal at paano ako humarap sa mga circumstances.” JM would rather focus on his career and enjoy singlehood, saying, “Hindi ko alam kung magmamahal ako ulit. Trabaho muna.”
Despite the praises from spectators and his co-stars, JM is always humble enough to downplay his talent. He even went speechless when Toni called him a deep, thinking actor. Unlike most actors, JM doesn’t like to extract emotions from his personal experiences. He would rather study and build the character based on the given requirements on the script.
He said he’s extra cautious of his emotional state, making sure he’s mature, strong, and prepared enough for what lies ahead. He doesn’t want to waste what he considers a second lease on his career, his current source of happiness and contentment.
