John Lloyd Cruz opened up about his li
fe as a father and why he chose to take a showbiz hiatus.
The actor who shied away from the limelight for years now finally shared what pushed him to leave showbiz. John Lloyd had a candid interview on Boy Abunda’s online show, Best Talk.
John Lloyd said he wanted to clear his mind and was looking for something better to offer to his fans. “And bilang creator gusto mong makapagbigay lagi ng something worth their time. And kung ubos ka, medyo mahihirapan kang ma-deliver iyon kasi wala nang bagong laman iyong utak mo — wala ka nang maibibigay na tingin ko is worth their time. Kumbaga nakakahiya na lang din,” John Lloyd said.
Tito Boy asked JLC if he felt burned out and the actor replied that he decided to look at his life at a different perspective.
“At one point you realize na sobrang iksi pala ng buhay at gusto mo lang, somehow you realize na kailangan mo pala bigyan ng halaga at atensyon ‘yung mga bagay na hindi mo p’wedeng ikaila.. Parang hindi mo siya made-deny eh, kailangan mo siyang gawin, otherwise parang tingin ko ayaw ko naman tatanda na magtataka ako na paano kong sinubukan ko ulit,” he said.
When asked if he is happy, John Lloyd was all smiles as he referred to his son Elias as the source of his happiness.
He said, “Wala na yatang mas liligaya pa pagkamayroon kang maliit na anak, na two years old na ang kulit. Wala nang kasing saya. Ang lupet. My little savior.”
