- Ronnie Alonte admitted he boasted of his fame as an actor
- He promised that he will never repeat this mistake again
- He will soon star in the upcoming movie James And Pat And Dave
Ronnie Alonte admitted that he became boastful of his achievements in showbiz during the start of his career.
It was in 2015 when he was launched as a member of Hashtags, a dance group on the daytime show It’s Showtime.
“Kasi nung bago ho ako sa Hashtags, nabigyan ho ako ng break after GGV,” Ronnie said referring to the late-night Kapamilya talk show of Vice Ganda, Gandang Gabi Vice.
The dance group guested on the said show in 2015.
Aside from his daily exposure on It’s Showtime, he was given different acting opportunities on ABS-CBN. This includes his Star Cinema movie with Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia in 2016 titled as Vince and Kath and James.
He was then paired up with Julia Barretto in the melodrama series A Love to Last.
He made several appearances on the longest-running drama anthology Maalaala Mo Kaya including the portrayal of his own story.
He also starred in Seklusyon, a movie directed by Erik Matti in the same year.
“Ikinalaki ho ng ulo ko, noon po” he said during his guesting on Magandang Buhay last July 16. “Feeling ko, artista na ako na parang hindi ko na nabibigyan ng time ang mga kaibigan ko sa Biñan, Laguna… na kasi feeling ko, gusto ko artista ang kasama ko, kasi artista ako.”
Ronnie said that, after a time, he realized his mistakes.
“Meron pong sumampal sa akin na parang may bumulong sa akin, sa sarili ko na, ‘Hindi na ikaw iyan. Hindi na ikaw si Ronnie, pare. Hindi na ikaw yung dati naming nakakasama. Ano bang nangyayari?’ Yung time na ho yun, nagse-senti ako na, ‘Ano bang nangyayari sa akin?’ So, napaka-sensitive ko ho sa ‘Nagbago ka na.’”
But he said that he assures himself now that this will not happen again.
“Iniingatan ko na ho yung salitang iyon. Kasi sinabi ko sa sarili ko, ‘Hoy, wala ka pang napapatunayan, Ronnie. Kahit may mapatunayan ka man o wala, dapat hindi lalaki ang ulo mo.’ Yun po yung sinabi ko sa sarili ko kaya naging sensitive po ako na sinasabihang, ‘Nagbago ka na.’”
He promised to himself, “Hindi na ho ako babalik sa ganun.”
He also shared that he asked for his parents’ and friends’ advice about this matter.
“Hindi niyo kasi ramdam sa sarili niyo iyon na nagbago kayo, e. Ang makakapuna noon, ang taong nakapaligid sa inyo, lalo na yung nakakasama niyo. Pero hindi ako magbabago talaga, promise ho. Napagsisihan ko na,” he concluded.
Ronnie is currently a part of ABS-CBN’s primetime series The General’s Daughter led by Angel Locsin alongside his real-life girlfriend, Loisa Andalio.
The actor is set to top bill the movie sequel of Vince and Kath and James which is James And Pat And Dave with Loisa Andalio and Donny Pangilinan.
The movie will also be directed by Theodore Boborol, the director of VKJ. It was reported that the shooting began on March 19. However, its release date has yet to be announced.
