Sporting a fiercer look with her pixie cut for a ‘kontrabida’ role in the Kapamilya series Precious Hearts Romances: Araw-Gabi in 2018, Jane Oineza was ready to prove the haters wrong.
In a past interview on Tonight with Boy Abunda, Jane was asked if she’s affected with all the bashing she gets especially if it’s about her career. “Ang dami mo nang pinagdaanan na mga salita. A lot of things have been said about you pero somebody told me na napipikon ka ‘pag sinasabihan kang napag-iiwanan ka ng mga kasabayan mo,” veteran host Boy Abunda told her.
Jane, who started in showbiz as a child star, is not a fan of comparisons. She believes everyone has their own timeline, “We’re all different. We do different projects. We do different career moves.” Besides, she uses such comments to encourage herself and prove her talent in acting. “Ginagawa mo lang siyang motivation to better myself, to be my own.”
Hearing Jane’s sentiments, Tito Boy commented that it’s important to be surrounded by positive people in showbiz “kasi aminin natin, masakit pakinggan ‘yun.” He continued, “In a competitive business like ours, nakakalungkot ‘yan, eh, ‘Oo nga naman, sila may mga ginagawa. Ako, hindi.’ Pero you have to be still and say iba-iba ng oras, iba-iba ng timing.”
Thanks to the naysayers, Jane has become more driven to improve as an actress and it showed in her performance in Araw-Gabi. She said, “Ang tagal ko na pong hindi nagte-teleserye. Ito ‘yung pinaka-comeback ko after a while. So, ngayon gusto kong patunayan na what they’re saying ay hindi totoo. I want to prove them wrong.”
Proving her grit and determination, Jane drives by herself to their shooting location in Batangas. Aside from wanting to save money from hiring a personal driver, she finds driving therapeutic.
