Having done sexy and daring roles, actor Marco Gumabao had the press on Tuesday, August 2, inquired on the possibility of him doing frontal nudity in his future projects.
What was his answer?
People have seen his behind during the 2019 film Just A Stranger. In terms of going all-out, Gumabao explained that “it all depends.”
“Depende. I mean if kailangang-kailangan for the movie,” he said during the press conference for his latest project Baby Boy, Baby Girl.
Furthermore, the actor does not see it as vital as portraying a role. He pointed out that he would rather showcase the improvement of his craft rather than show even more skin.
“Kasi for me, hindi naman kailangang for every project, kailangan mong magpakita or kailangan mong higitan ang pagpapakita mo sa previous projects mo.
“I thinks what’s better is higitan mo ang ipinakita mo in terms of acting, in terms of your craft sa previous project mo. I don’t think na nababase naman sa galing ng isang pelikula kung gaano kadaming skin or gaano ka-nude ang ipapakita natin,” he explained.
The Viva star also would not like to use prosthetics just to give the audience what they want—seeing his private part.
“For me naman, hindi issue ang prosthetics. With or without the prosthetics, the fact na nagpakita ka pa rin kahit na hindi sa ‘yo iyon or sa iyo ‘yun, ‘yon ang medyo ano eh.”
Coming from a religious family, Gumabao stressed that it is “ironic” if people see him flaunting his privates (even if it’s fake) while being a devoted Christian.
“Ako, Kristyano ako at the same time. Pino-post ko minsan na nagsisimba ako, na Christian ang family namin. So very contradicting naman na Kristya-Kristyanuhan ako tapos nagpakita ako ng ano sa mga tao. Kumbaga, ‘yung cute-cute lang.”
Baby Boy, Baby Girl also stars beauty queen-turned-sexy actress Kylie Versoza. John Paul Laxamana is the director of the film.
