IT is sad but Jameson Blake candidly admits that he’s been repeatedly bashed lately since he did a movie (Connected under Regal) with Janella Salvador that is slated to get shown sometime next year.
“Well, to be honest,” he said matter of factly, “it’s actually happening now, e.
“It’s like some people are bashing me on Twitter.
“Mabuti na lang my fans are helping me ‘cause I don’t want to fight with anyone.
“Ako, as person, I’m a peaceful person. I don’t like fights.
“Kahit mga ano sa internet, hindi naman ako umaaway sa Twitter or anything.
“Siguro may fans, of course, their loyal to their… if they have another love team, gano’n, they’ll have an argument, they won’t agree with that, so…”
Admittedly, he gets affected also when the bashings would be so intense.
“Of course, I’m not doing naman anything,” he said stoically. “I’m not fighting with the fans naman, e.
“And I’m just telling them how happy I am to work with her (Janella), happy to get the lead role.”
Jameson was interviewed by the press at the grand mediacon of Regal’s entry to the Metro Manila Film Festival 2017, Haunted Forest.
“Ngayon, when I see those tweets, naapektohan din ako nang konti, I just learned to forget about it, cause people can really be… they would disagree sa mga sinasabi.
“They can really be mean. Siyempre, hindi ko kilala ang fans, so that’s what they’re saying naman.”
Still about the bashing, he would talk about it to Janella in a positive light.
“I’m just makin’ it in a joking way na parang, ‘Bina-bash ako ng fans mo.’” he averred. “Pero we don’t really talk about it kasi…”
Janella knows that people can be mean.
“Even siya mismo,” he said with good humor,” she said na she has fans who are mean as well, so we can’t control that, e.
“What we’re focusing now is ‘yung good work namin, what we’re doing for the movie, ‘yung craft namin.
“We don’t really talk about the bashers.
“The fans kasi, expected naman na may mga ganoong tao.”
Predictably so, ini-expect niyang kapag malapit nang ipalabas ang kanilang movie ay higit na darami ang kanyang bashers.
But right now, he wants to focus on their festival movie Haunted Forest that he prays would earn enormous amount of money at the box-office.
And with that, ito po ang Kuya Pete ninyo na nagsasabing, Christopher, my son, I love you very, very much, my love for you goes beyond eternity.
Adios. Mabalos. I always need you, Nhong!
