- Paulo Avelino clarifies that he is not quitting the business.

Paulo Avelino is one of the most prominent actors of our time. Recently, rumors spread that he is retiring from showbiz.
Paulo has had a busy year with overlapping projects. He is part of ABS-CBN’s daytime drama Asintado. He is also busy training for the upcoming series The General’s Daughter.
On top of these, his new movie Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral is set to play in cinemas from September 5.
The numerous projects took a toll on Paulo. People think he’s retiring. Paolo clarified this issue during the press conference of Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral.
“Not naman retire, It’s like a break… I’ve been doing this for 10 years, so I think pahinga naman. Siguro bakasyon ng kaunti. Slow down muna tayo.
“I will still be active. I will be doing stuff.”
He also mentioned that he won’t do what John Lloyd Cruz did — taking an indefinite leave from showbiz.
“Hindi naman. I always want to try new things and test things. Break lang.
“Hindi naman ako mawawala. Parang mas gusto ko lang na mas relaxed. Ayaw ko lang nang naghahabol-habol sa schedule ko kasi, magkasabay, lagare. Gusto ko mag-relax lang.”
But it doesn’t look like Paulo Avelino will not be able to take a breather soon enough. The actor said that it will only happen after The General’s Daughter which is set to air anytime soon.
He admits he needs to slow down and commit to a healthier work-life balance.
“Mas slower pace lang. Importante sa atin ‘yung work, life ay balanced. I think ‘yun ang kulang ko. Work, work lang sa akin,” he concluded.
