Marvin Agustin admits he prefers cooking more than acting at this time, still wants to do showbiz projects that feel ‘right’

The restauranteur admitted that currently, he prefers cooking more than acting. He clarified, however, that it doesn’t mean he is less passionate about the latter.

Actor-chef Marvin Agustin revealed that before doing a project, his feelings take on the front seat.

Amid the pandemic, Marvin continues to thrive in the food industry.



In an interview with G3 San Diego, a question was hurled at him–whether his acting matches his passion for cooking.

The restauranteur admitted that currently, he prefers cooking more than acting. He clarified, however, that it doesn’t mean he is less passionate about the latter.

“I would say, especially right now, cooking more than acting. But it doesn’t make me less passionate about acting. It’s just that yun yung natural environment ko ngayon talaga,” he admitted.

He then revealed that he turned down a previous project offer just because he does not feel it.

Marvin had this gut feeling that he will not be satisfied after doing the project because it is not something that his heart and soul want.

“There was actually this offer for me to do this project. Parang go na go ako supposedly for acting and being in a series again.

“It’s just that parang hindi ko naramdaman na yun yung gusto ng puso ko at kaluluwa ko.

“Pero dahil sa nangyayari sa atin ngayon, kung hindi rin nararamdaman na gusto mo gawin, parang you kind of take it na alam mo na ano yung importante at anong valuable talaga ngayon because of all these things that happened to us,” he said.

Though he almost accepted the project, he felt that it is not the right thing to do as of now.

“Oo-ohan ko na sana yung project but it didn’t feel right. Parang ino-oo-han ko siya dahil gusto ko lang gumawa and not because it is the right project for me.

“And ganun ko siya kamahal na tumatanda na ako eh. parang ilang TV shows.”

It has been two years since he was last seen on TV.

His last appearance was with the GMA Network series, Inagaw na Bituin.

Since then, Agustin has been focused on running his food businesses. Despite that, he still receives offers from showbiz.

Recently, he announced the postponement of his supposed reunion film with his former loveteam partner, Jolina Magdangal.

He also clarified that it was canceled not because they do not want to do it but because they want something better.

“Gusto namin, hindi lang para sa sarili namin kung hindi para roon sa mga humahanga at gusto kaming mapanood ulit. Pero I think the right project will come.



“Huwag silang mag-alala. Ang dahilan ng hindi pagkakatuloy ay hindi dahil hindi namin gusto. Gusto namin mas magandang project,” he clarified.
