LOUISE De Los Reyes does her first movie now that she’s managed by Viva Artists, “Para sa Broken Hearted”, which opens in theaters on October 3. “Maganda 'yung role ko as Kath, isang babaeng mahilig mag-emote,” she says. “Kapag humantong sa break ang isang pakikipagrelasyon ako, I quickly jump into another relationship. But later on, I will fall for Sam Concepcion na karelasyon din si Yassi Pressman so magiging love triangle kami.”
It was GMA-7 who gave her the break playing leads in soaps like “Alakdana”, “Mundo Mo’y Akin”, “Magkaibang Mundo” and “Kambal Sirena”. Viva brought her to ABS-CBN and she has since done supporting roles for them in “Ang Probinsyano” and “Asintado”. What can she say about this?
“Okay lang naman for more,” she says. “Kasi, let’s face it, I think I had my time and I couldn’t ask for more.”
So she has no regrets that she played lead roles in GMA-7 but is now just a supporting actress? “All my decisions, pinag-iisipan ko naman so I’m not that kind of person who wallows in regrets. Ang mahalaga, I have work to do at heto nga, ongoing pa rin ang ‘Asintado’ at may bagong movie ako. I have so much to be thankful for.”
One of the reasons she’s thankful is she has found an ideal boyfriend named Jino, who owns a restobar in the in-place today for night outs, Poblacion in Makati. When she turned 26 on September 1, Jino prepared a party for her and she’s overwhelmed by the way he orchestrated everything for her, from the decors of the place up to the food and drinks served to her guests. It’s obvious she’s very much in love with Jino since she’s very open in sharing their relationship with the press, unlike when she was on with Champ Lui Pio of Hale Band and she was so secretive.
“I can really say that everything is going well in my life now. Parang ngang everything fell into the right place and I can’t believe it that I feel deep inside that I’m so genuinely happy. Eight months kaming dating and three months nang in a formal relationship. For his patience and understanding, he’s really the best boyfriend ever,” she adds with her eyes beaming.
It would be recalled that when she was still a Kapuso, Louise also went steady with Enzo Pineda for four years and also briefly with Aljur Abrenica when they did “Kambal Sirena”. All of them are now with ABS-CBN.
