EUGENE Domingo said she doesn’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 doesn’t get too comfortable with her roles and she always has the drive and thirst to deliver her best performance.

“Hindi 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,” she said.

“Hindi porke’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,” she added.

Eugene’s box-office dominance was certified by the “Kimi Dora” movies, her films with Ai-Ai delas Alas and the Cinemalaya entry “Ang Babae sa Septic Tank.”

She said it takes some extra effort to do a movie and a theater production simultaneously.

“Mahirap pero kailangan ng focus. I’m just so blessed na maayos ang aking calendar. Nabibigyan ko ng atensyon yung mga gusto kong gawin,” 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 it’s also a big question mark on her side.

“Hindi ako nababahala, ako’y takang-taka. Ano bang klaseng pangitain ito? Siguro dahil safe ako at walang kamali-malisya. Duty lang talaga, tawag ng sining,” she said. (MNS)
