MYRTLE SARROSA was the big winner in PBB Teens 4th edition in 2012 but her career didn’t take off the way those of other winners did. She’s lucky that Regal Entertainment continues to give her film assignments and she’s now one of the lead stars in the barkada movie, “Ang Henerasyong Sumuko sa Love”. In real life, was there a time that she really made “suko” to love?
“I admit may times na gusto ko nang sumuko,” she says. “Kasi when you’re in a relationship, there are times na both sides, hindi na happy at hindi na kayo nakakatulong for each other to grow, so it’s better to just give up. But then, masarap magmahal, e, so hindi mo basta-basta masusukuan yan.”
Has she done any crazy things for love? “Oh yes, I’ve done some crazy things for love. Ako kasi, pag alam kong may kailangan ang taong mahal ko, gumagastos talaga ako para sa kanya, like I bought all the things he needs for his mobile game at sobrang mahal noon, ha. Now, pinagsisisihan ko yun kasi hindi naman pala kami magkakatuluyan. Dapat pala, ginastos ko na lang para sa sarili ko yung pera kaysa para sa gadgets niya.”
Of course, she would not reveal the identity of the guy. In “Henerasyong Sumuko sa Love”, she plays Juna Mae, a promodizer who is afraid of commitment. She has a boyfriend, Albie Casino as Hadji, who’s a hopeless romantic and her exact opposite. She’s cynical about love after her past relationships ended badly and does not believe in forever. In contrast, Hadji is more idealistic when it comes to romance.
So how about Albie, has he ever given up on love? “No, as long as my heart is beating, hindi ako titigil magmahal,” he says.
Has he done any crazy things for love? “Naku, marami akong ginawang crazy things. Kasi when I’m in love, nawawala ako sa sarili ko. But as of now, I’m more in love with my career. On TV, I’ve just finished ‘Los Bastardos’. Aside naman from ‘Henerasyong Sumuko sa Love’, kasama rin ako sa ‘Isa Pang Bahaghari’ ni Direk Joel Lamangan, so I’m happy to be busy with assignments now.”
“Ang Henerasyong Sumuko sa Love” also stars Jane Oineza, Jerome Ponce and Tony Labrusca. It opens in theaters nationwide this coming Wednesday.
