The actress believes her bullies might just be envious of her.

“Minsan, hindi mapigil ng ibang tao yung naiinggit. Eh, ako kasi hindi ako nai-insecure, kasi nga, hindi ko naman iniisip na maganda ako, di ba? Basta ako, gagalingan ko, magtatrabaho ako kikita ako, ganun lang naman ako, eh.

“Hindi ko nga sila ina-ano, eh, o inaaway sa TV. Yung iba naman itsitsismis ka pa na ganito, ganyan. Naku, yang mga yan, kaya nga ako na-turn off.

“Totoo yan, kung bakit din ako umalis sa showbiz kasi parang, ano ba naman itong mga ‘to? Para akong nasa dinosaur place, maraming tarantula and everything. Parang hindi ko na alam kung sino ba yung kausap ko talaga,” Quinto shared.

Quinto also said that she used to read hate comments before that even led her to plan about quitting showbiz.

“Binabasa ko yung mga comments, eh, mali pala yon. Dapat hindi ko pala binasa kasi unti-unti akong na-hurt. Tapos bigla na lang ayoko ng mag-artista, yung mga ganun.

“Kasi ano ako, eh, hindi ako masyadong magaling na mag-aaral, pero malakas po ang pakiramdam ko at ang vision ko kaya nga ako artista. So, napi-feel ko agad kapag hindi maganda at hindi okey, naba-vibes ko din.

“Maraming salbahe, eh. Ang yabang-yabang nila, akala mo naman… Kaya tingnan mo, wala na sila. Bigla silang nawala, pumangit sila,” she joked.

According to her, most of her fellow celebrities mocked her due to her poor English speaking skills.

She narrated:”Noon kasi yung mga ka-batch ko puro Fil-Am, yung mga panahon na hirap na hirap akong mag-English. Hindi ako maka-English kaya parang inapi-api ako. Sabi ko, ‘Ay ganun.’ Tapos nung nasa PBA ako, eh, di ba ang ingay-ingay, sabi sa akin, ‘How are you?’ ang sagot ko, ‘Yes.’ Hahaha.

“Tapos may isang artista, binully din ako. Pa-English-English siya. ‘How are you, atchu-chucu-chu.’ Nakatingin lang ako sa kanya, wala ako masabi kasi hindi ako marunong mag-English.

“Nung una, hiyang-hiya din ako, kasi kahit mga kapatid ko tinutukso ako”she shared.

Despite this, the actress chose to forget her past experiences and forgive the people who bullied her. She also refused to reveal the names of her fellow celebrities bullies.

“Pero kinalimutan ko lahat ng yon. Eh, ano ngayon kung mali-mali yung English ko? Oh, ngayon yon yung naging hugot ko, awa ng Diyos binigyan ako ng asawang Inglisero. Hahaha!”

The actress married financial analyst Trevor Magallanes in 2016 and they had a daughter in 2017.

Quinto is currently part of the cast of the movie And Ai Thank You starring Ai-Ai Delas Alas and Dennis Padilla under the direction of Joven Tan. It premiered last August 14 in the cinemas nationwide.
