Ronnie Alonte is not proud to confess that he once allowed fame to get the best of him when he was still new in the showbiz industry.

The “Love in 40 Days” actor made the confession in an episode of “Toni” on Dec. 20, alongside his reel-to-real life partner Loisa Andalio.


Alonte admitted that while being an actor was not his goal back then, getting his first big break in the industry made him too proud of himself. 


“Lumaki po talaga ‘yung ulo ko noon. Siyempre, ganoon po talaga kapag baguhan ka tapos nabigyan ka ng break. Nakilala ka ng tao at ng mga fans. Nakalimutan ko na ‘yung mga kaibigan kong non-showbiz na totoo kong mga naging kaibigan kasi gusto kong makipaghalubilo sa mga artista,” the actor said. 

(I allowed fame to get into my head back then. Of course, it’s normal for actors who are new in the showbiz industry and you get your big break. People recognize you, and you gain more fans. I forgot about my non-showbiz friends because I want to interact with celebrities.)

Eventually, Alonte realized that he didn’t like the person he was turning out to be when he had the chance to reconnect in his childhood home in Biñan, Laguna.

“Pagtagal-tagal ko po, na-realize kong hindi pala ako ‘yun. Sabi ko, parang hindi ako ‘to kasi hindi naman ako ganito. Kaya noong na-realize ko ito, bumalik ako sa Biñan at [nakipag-reconnect] sa mga kaibigan ko. Doon na ulit ako bumalik sa kung sino ako talaga. Hanggang ngayon, ganoon pa rin ako,” the actor said.

(It soon came to a moment where I realized that wasn’t me. I said, this is not me because I’m usually not like this. So, when I realized about the type of person I’ve become, I returned to Biñan and reconnected with my friends. That’s when I returned to the person I truly am. And until now, I’m still the same person.)

Alonte started his showbiz career as a member of the dance group Hashtags in the noontime show “It’s Showtime” in 2015. He is best known for his appearances in the films “Seklusyon,” “Vince and Kath and James,” and “James and Pat and Dave.” 


The actor is also part of the 48th Metro Manila Film Festival film entry “My Teacher” starring Toni Gonzaga and Joey de Leon. EDV
