John Lloyd Cruz works for a better version of himself-A A +A
Tuesday, April 29, 2014
ACTOR John Lloyd Cruz enjoys his active lifestyle and keen to continue working to maintain a lean body.
In a CinemaNews interview, the "Home Sweetie Home" leading man shared that when he turned 30, it became his goal to maintain a balance and healthy diet.
He started running and does mountain biking.
"Ang ganda na ng nasimulan ko and nakaka-ispire kasi dati akala ko, okay na ako. Kuntento na ako kung paano ako, kung ano ako. Totoo pala yun na you want a better version of yourself," he said.
Known for his tag "tunay na lalake" for not having pronounced abs and muscles, Cruz said he is still the same person but now prefers to lead a healthy lifestyle.
"Being a better version of yourself doesn't mean having a sculptured body. Ako sa utak ko, sa puso ko, alam ko na nire-represent ko parin ang maraming kalalakihan," he said.
When asked for his advice to men who wanted to lead a healthy and active lifestyle, he said, "First you have to start with yourself. You have to know how to balance work and play. Maraming example yung play, like now nai-enjoy ko working under the sun."
He said it also helps that he has the full support of girlfriend Angelica Panganiban. Cruz said they have a deeper and stronger relationship now.
"Given my line of job, mahirap yung time. Pinakamadalas natin yan ma-take for granted, lalo na yung time sa sarili natin. With her, hindi ko iniisip na mahihirapan ako sa area na yun. Mapa-bike or kung gusto ko man tumakbo, sinasamahan niya ako," he said.
Meanwhile, the actor was asked about his professional relationship with "Dyesebel" lead actress Anne Curtis after the reported slapping incident at a posh bar in Taguig City last year.
Cruz said they are okay and even wants to do a project with the actress.
"Wala kaming problema ni Anne. Wala talaga. Prior to our last exchange of messages, ang pinag-uusapan namin na sana, dapat kasi may gagawin kaming teleserye, sana matuloy," he said.
"Pero hindi talaga magtugma tugma yung schedule namin. Nag decide muna siya ang her management na gawin yung 'Dyesebel'. Piolo (Pascual) is also doing a new teleserye. Maybe sa movie na lang kami magkakasama," he added. (Sunnex)
