Too mature for child actors
TESS Doce-Halili, writer and travel photographer: “I wish stars today would emulate the stars of yesteryears, who were the epitome of good manners, right conduct and proper behavior in public. They may not have led perfect lives, but at least they didn’t flaunt their disgusting lifestyles in public to generate publicity.”
Philip Agoncillo: “Why is Anne Curtis admired by both men and women? It’s because, no matter how daring she gets, she remains respectable. She is pretty, and her body is to die for!”
Lisa Jayme, office employee: “I was glad to see former child actor, Jiro Manio, on Sharon Cuneta’s afternoon talk show. Jiro’s confession about his rehab experience due to drug addiction and his becoming a father at age 15 taught painful lessons that have hopefully inspired him to change for the better. I hope that he’ll be given a second chance to act on television or in the movies.”
Ayin Nevo, homemaker: “Why is a local kiddie show that is telecast on weekends rated PG (Parental Guidance)? Are the child actors’ parents or guardians around when they tape the show, to enlighten them about its content? Also, I find some of the show’s themes too mature for comfort—after all, the show’s stars are still kids!”
