Luis Manzano admitted that he almost ended his showbiz career
Actor-host Luis Manzano had thoughts of quitting showbiz and he revealed his reason for thinking about this in the past.
Luis started his career at a young age. His parents, Vilma Santos and Edu Manzano, are both icons in the Philippine entertainment industry.
With his wit and humor, it was not difficult for Luis to establish his name in showbiz. He is one of the in-demand TV hosts of his generation. However, despite his success in showbiz, the actor-host admitted that thoughts of leaving the industry also entered his mind.
In a vlog of Kapamilya actress Francine Diaz featuring Luis Manzano doing the lie detector test, the latter was asked if thoughts of quitting showbiz crossed his mind. Luis said yes but the device indicated that he was lying.
However, he stressed that it was true. “Pero totoo — ‘yung ibang mga tao talaga hindi alam kung papaano ang industriya. Ang nakikita nila most of the time ay ‘yung glitz and glamour na lang, ‘yung finished product na masarap maging artista, maganda ang income,” he said.
The TV host stressed that people don’t know the ins and outs of showbiz that could be dirty at times. Luis also revealed that some of his friends would make fun of the lives of celebrities.
Because of this, he had thoughts that he might be a laughingstock as well in the eyes of other people. “People will never understand it. Akala nila na madali tayong pag-usapan,” he said.
Luis added that without a heart and mind that are strong enough, one could not stand to remain in the industry. The actor-host also said that with all the negativity, he said that maybe it would be much better to live a quite life away from the glitz and glamour of showbiz.
On the other hand, he stressed the blessing that are given to celebrities to have the chance to make their fans happy ang this blessing pushes him to continue his showbiz journey.
