21 celebrity quotes of 2021

/ 12:04 AM January 01, 2022

First of two parts

Before we plunge into 2022, allow me to share 21 celeb quotes that got “Dollywoodified” in 2021. May this year not be a replay of the past two years.


Have some originality please, 2022, and create better content.

Sharon Cuneta

Sharon Cuneta: I wanted my first marriage to last, but when I was 21, all the signs were there to end it. No regrets because I’m happily married to my cool hubby, Kiko Pangilinan. He never makes me feel trapped nor does he stunt my growth as an actress. He has no qualms about me working with my exes. Kaya ‘di ko siya iniiwan (laughs).


Martin Nievera: I had nothing to do with Pops and my girlfriend Anj being on good terms. Anj never took me away from Pops, so why would they not be on good terms? Anj, just like any other woman, has to take so much when she’s involved with a show biz personality. I try to shield her from some of the unnecessary sticks and stones, but thanks to social media, I can’t always protect her. When she met me, I was the same guy I am now. The guy who always had this kind of career and complicated life all rolled into one. I am sure she doesn’t like it at all, but because she loves me, she takes it all in stride. That’s why I love her.

Yassi Pressman: I’ve done so much in the name of love. But I don’t think of it as a sacrifice. If it’s for love, it must not feel heavy. Besides, all those things brought me to a place where I want to be, so my efforts paid off.

John Arcilla: Acting is just being natural—anybody can do it because what we do in our daily life is actually acting. For me, being is acting, and acting is being.

Tom Rodriguez: I am more of a touchy feely person. Meanwhile, Carla (Abellana) responds through acts of service. Just because you don’t have the same love language doesn’t mean you are not compatible.

Xian Lim

Xian Lim: For me, what matters most is the sense of fulfillment I get from doing a project. If an actor does a project for the sake of awards or box-office success or high ratings, that mindset could affect his performance. If I am truly happy with a project, there’s no need for validation. But if I win an award for it or it becomes a hit, then I consider that as a bonus.

Ellen Adarna (left) and Derek Ramsay

Derek Ramsay: For couples in a whirlwind romance, like what happened to Ellen (Adarna) and me, you must be aware of your emotions and not be scared to act on them. Whether it be “to marry or to break up.”

Marco Gumabao: For me, getting married is not a race. Even if many friends of mine got hitched, I am not pressured to do so, too. I follow my own pace. I want my next girlfriend to be the one I will marry. I don’t want to waste my time, money and emotions anymore.


Diego Loyzaga: I am open to the idea of becoming a dad at an early age. I don’t want to be too old to enjoy [spending time] with my future kids. Besides, I come from a broken family, so I want to start my own family as soon as possible.

Kylie Versoza: To make a relationship work, the guy must love the girl more. I am a very hopeful person, but I set limits for my boyfriend after he does something wrong.

Andrew E

From ‘Knock Knock’ to TikTok

That is what Andrew E’s hit song from way back, “Aussie! Aussie! O Sige!,” can do—and it’s now a TikTok trend. It’s the theme of the comedy series “Sanggano, Sanggago’t Sanggwapo” (now streaming on Vivamax), topbilled by Janno Gibbs, Dennis Padilla and Andrew E. Welcome the aňo nuevo with the trio loco.

Here are quotes from Andrew (A) and Janno (J):

A: If my life story would be made into a movie, I want the title to be “Humanap Ka ng Pangit Pero Mabuhay Ka ng Pogi.”

J: When Andrew, Dennis or I make an ad-lib during our scenes, walang gustong magpatalo. So one ad-lib leads to another. But we make sure they’re all stitched together well.

A: My wife gets mad when I don’t have kissing scenes. She is that supportive. For her, no movie of mine is complete if I don’t get cozy with my leading ladies.

J: Since it was a lock-in shoot due to the pandemic, we all had separation anxiety when it was time to go home.

A: The secret of our comedy as a troika is we have no secret at all. Our rapport comes naturally. INQ
