- JC Santos is healing from his break-up with a stage actress last January.
- He shared how he relates a lot to his character in The Day After Valentine’s.
- According to co-star Bela Padilla, JC is enjoying his life.
JC Santos and his girlfriend for four years, stage actress Kristine “Teetin” Villanueva, broke up last January. In a press conference for his latest movie, The Day After Valentine’s, JC revealed that he is taking his time where love is concerned.
Relates to character
JC says he can relate to his character, Kai, in the said movie. Kai is a man smarting up from a break-up.
“Ang take ko sa pelikula, papaano ka ba kapag may sugat ka? Ano ang una mong ginagawa? Habang may sugat ka, ano ang nangyayari sa iyo? At ano ang nangyayari kapag naging scar na siya? ‘Yun ang biggest question ng pelikula, kung papaano ka mag-deal sa pain kapag may sugat ka at kung paano mo siya ide-deal kapag scar na siya.”
Not unlike his character Kai, JC is in the process of moving forward from a failed relationship. The wounds, he says, have healed into scars,
Aside from the movie, JC also stars in the prime time series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. Too preoccupied, JC says he just might “get married” to his work.
“Papunta na ako dun, pakakasalan ko na ‘to. Mas masaya akong nagtratrabaho ngayon. Lalo na ako, baguhan pa lang ako.”
The Day After Valentine’s reunites JC with Bela Padilla, his leading lady in 100 Tula Para Kay Stella, the topgrosser in last year’s Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino. Bela says that she is happy for JC who is enjoying his life now.
“Happy ako ngayon dahil ine-enjoy niya ang buhay niya. When I say ine-enjoy ang buhay, hindi siya nagde-date around, ha. Naghahalaman siya, inaalagaan niya ang aso niya, nagbabasa siya ng libro. Iba yung happiness niya kapag kinukwento niya sa ‘yo na, ‘Uy, may bago akong halaman.’ So, nakakatuwa at least, ine-enjoy niya ang life niya.”
