Luis Hontiveros finally addressed the people who question him regarding his sexual orientation!
During the virtual media launch of the sexy drama indie movie Palitan on Monday, November 22, Hontiveros was asked if he is afraid of controversies resurfacing, considering him entering the world of showbiz.
“Sa modelling days pa lang nagsimula, I think any other male model, may pagdadaanan na kung anu-anong isyu kasi we’re in the entertainment industry.
“Sa akin, nagmo-model pa lang ako, even before pumasok ako sa showbiz, parang may mga kumakalat na bakla raw ako.” Hontiveros answered
He even admitted he heard allegations of him receiving indecent proposals.
“Kesyo ganyan, kesyo ganito. Alaga ni ganito, tumatanggap ng indecent proposals. Well, for me, noong una, parang, what?! Parang nasa-shock pa ako, affected ako.” Hontiveros stated.
“But after so many years being in the industry, knowing myself, knowing yung katotohanan na wala naman ganoong nangyari, I just brushed it off.
“At the end of the day, the only opinions that matter are the people who actually matter to me.”
Hontiveros shared he eventually learned not to pay attention to the negative things people are saying about him.
He shared that a person’s sexual preference should not be a big deal, saying that there is nothing wrong with people expressing their preferred identity.
“It’s 2021 na. Ano naman kung bading yung lalake? Ano naman kung tomboy yung babae? What’s wrong with that? Until now pa rin ba, gagawin nating isyu yung sekswalidad, sexual identity, sexual preference ng mga tao?
“Dapat hindi na pinagtsitsismisan ‘yan kasi everyone should accept everyone. No matter who, where, what type of person, they should be accepted at the end of the day.” he added.
Hontiveros started his showbiz career when he joined the Kapamilya reality show Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky 7 in 2016.
