- Sue Ramirez got emotional when she opened up her emotions about the Filipino audience not supporting films with less popular celebrities
- She called it “unfair” that viewers look at the artists first before the story and the content of the film
- Direk Rod Marmol said it must be because producers tend to choose artists that guarantees the movie will earn
Sue Ramirez couldn’t help but shed tears as she talked about the “unfair” treatment of viewers towards “less popular” celebrities.
The Cuddle Weather star was on Boy Abunda’s show “The Bottomline” and bared her real emotions towards Filipino audiences. Sue said it hurts her to know that viewers only support movies and shows with popular celebrities.
Sue said, “Ako medyo nagiging emosyonal ako, Tito Boy, doon sa fact na ang tinitingnan pala ng mga kabataan ngayon ay kung gaano kasikat ang artista na bumibida sa isang pelikula.
She continued that movies with less popular artists are not being supported by the audience and it’s pain
“Masakit siya for us, kasi not everyone is as big as everyone, and I just feel like they’re not giving other people the chances that they deserve,” she added.
The actress called it “un
fair” that Filipino viewers value more the celebrities rather the story behind the films they make.
“I think it is unfair for me, that the majority of people in this country actually look at who is on the screen rather than what and what can you get from the movie that you’re going to watch. It hurts,” Sue added.
Cuddle Weather director Rod Marmol shared that the issue might stem from the fact that it’s expensive to make movies.
He said producers tend to go for popular artists because there’s a higher chance that it will earn more.
Direk Rod explained, “Parang kunyari kung may isang chance ka lang magbenta ng putahe, at alam mong ang ‘ingredient’ na ‘to ang pinakamabenta, uulit-ulitin mong gagamitin ‘yan e. Yun ang nangyayari sa pelikula na ‘yon.”
