Why did Korina Sanchez turn down movie offers with FPJ?
Broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez revealed that she refused the offer to do a movie with the late actor Fernando Poe, Jr. because of this reason.
Korina said in a recent interview by The Philippine Star that performing has been in her blood. Many people might have no idea about this aspect of her life as she has always been known to be one of the prominent personalities in the broadcasting field. However, when she was young, Korina said that she also had thoughts of entering showbiz.
“When I was very little, I used to pray to God to make me an artista. I think performance is really in my blood. My mother was a singer, and I’ve always liked to perform, but as I was getting older, I also liked writing a lot,” Korina Sanchez shared.
She said this is the reason why when she was thinking about her course in college, she considered these two interests and she became a broadcast journalist.
The Rated Korina host also revealed that she received acting offers in the past. She was offered to do a movie with Fernando Poe, Jr. but she refused to accept that once in a lifetime offer.
Although that gave her a “kilig” feeling back then, she had to decline. “So, to be an artista, well yes, there were offers for an FPJ movie, believe it or not, before. Of course, I was already a newscaster then, so I said, ‘No, thank you, kilig ako.’ I also guested in a few sitcoms as a journalist. I also believe in sticking to your forte. Because if you grow in one area, then you have a better chance of becoming bigger in that field,” Korina Sanchez explained.
