Diego Gutierrez, the only son of Monching Gutierrez and Lotlot de Leon, has ventured into showbiz as a Kapamilya artist.
Following the path of his sister Janine, Diego is now part of the new stars under ABS-CBN.
In an interview on “I Feel U,” Diego opened up about his life prior to showbiz and how his celebrity family influenced him to take a chance in the entertainment industry.
“I only got into it recently. Ang dream ko talaga is maging basketball player before. Until now nagba-basketball pa rin ako pero recently nagka-opportunity to enter showbiz. My parents said why don’t I try it so ayun, nandito na tayo ngayon,” he said.
Despite belonging to the showbiz clan of the Gutierrez, Diego admitted he wants to prove himself and work hard to be “good on his own.”
“I just really try to do my best every time. Siyempre gusto ko ma-live up ‘yung expectations ng tao pero I try not to think about that na. Sa sarili, I just want to be good on my own. I want to work for it also and hopefully achieve what my family achieved na rin,” he said.
When asked about the best advice his parents gave him about showbiz, Diego replied, “They always say na nothing comes easy in this industry and you have to earn everything and work for it. I think that’s one of the biggest lessons that I’ve learned also being an athlete. Na-learn ko na rin na hindi talaga madali. You have to earn your spot. I think this applies to this industry as well for sure.”
