EUGENE Domingo said she doesnâ€™t rest on her laurels when it comes to her acting career, but instead she keeps learning and reinvents herself.
In a recent interview, she said she doesnâ€™t get too comfortable with her roles and she always has the drive and thirst to deliver her best performance.
â€œHindi ako nakakampante. Alam kong trabaho ito. Nagsimula talaga ako sa commitment. Nabigyan ka na ng chance, hindi ito laging nangyayari, hindi ko na ito pababayaan,â€ she said.
â€œHindi porkeâ€™t ang galing mo na sa ibang pelikula, akala mo kaya mo nang gawin lahat. Ang lesson ko dito ay huwag na huwag kang magiging kampante, lahat ng papel ay pinagtatrabahuan,â€ she added.
Eugeneâ€™s box-office dominance was certified by the â€œKimi Doraâ€ movies, her films with Ai-Ai delas Alas and the Cinemalaya entry â€œAng Babae sa Septic Tank.â€
She said it takes some extra effort to do a movie and a theater production simultaneously.
â€œMahirap pero kailangan ng focus. Iâ€™m just so blessed na maayos ang aking calendar. Nabibigyan ko ng atensyon yung mga gusto kong gawin,â€ she said.
When asked why her projects shows more skin (the movie will feature a bed scene with Ogie and she will have intimate sequences with Edgar in Bona), the comedian said itâ€™s also a big question mark on her side.
â€œHindi ako nababahala, akoâ€™y takang-taka. Ano bang klaseng pangitain ito? Siguro dahil safe ako at walang kamali-malisya. Duty lang talaga, tawag ng sining,â€ she said. (MNS)
