It used to be that Alessandra de Rossi would take on any role thrown in her lap. Not anymore.
The award-winning actress says she has matured enough as an artist to realize the need to do quality roles, as with quality pictures.
“Dati kasi, parang tanggap ka lang nang tanggap. Basta’t may work, happy ako,” she said. “Ngayon, talagang iniisip ko, ‘Nakaka-inspire ba ito? Nakaka-educate ba ito? May information ba silang makukuhang maganda dito? Meron ba silang necessary emotions na kailangang makuha from this project?’

“Actually, marami akong stories in mind na gusto kong isulat,” she said, admitting however that she might not be ready.
“Sobrang perfectionist ko, baka sumakit lang ang ulo ko…Basta siguro one day… Tingnan natin.” (MNS)
