Rotation lang talaga yung story ng Katorse. Walang kabugan, iisang show e so tulong-tulong kami. Actually madami ngang nagsasabi sa akin na lumalabas na Enchong Dee ang nilagay sa storya. Sabi ko naman hindi, nagkataon lang na masaya gawin yung character ni Jojo.

But the young actor insisted that it was just a courteous gesture on his part. “No naman. Busy kasi si Erich nun magpass ng goods and super init kasi nakaexpose talaga kami sa initan. Nasa Nangka, Marikina kami at that time. Busing-busy talaga, lahat ng tao in a rush. So I’m trying to be a gentleman lang. Inofferan ko siya ng tubig and tinulungan ko lang siyang uminom,” he said in an interview with ABS-CBN.com.

Gerald Anderson was one of the Star Magic artists who walked the ramp in the Magic for a Cause fashion show last October 11 for the benefit of the victims of Typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng. In an interview with ABS-CBN.com, Gerald shared how happy he was to be a part of the charity show. “It feels good because it gives us an opportunity para makatulong pa sa mga nasalanta ng bagyo. Kahit nga nakatulong na ako noon, hindi tayo dapat tumigil sa pagtulong dahil marami pa rin ang naghihirap ngayon after the calamity.” Gerald wore a creation by renowned designer Inno Sotto who also made the suit that the young actor wore in last August’s Star Magic Ball.
Gerald was also recently hailed the sexiest man in the country by a popular magazine. In spite of this recognition, the Fil-American cutie from General Santos City confessed he still feels shy about taking his shirt off. “Kahit maraming nagsasabi na maganda na ‘yung katawan ko nahihiya pa rin ako. Hindi pa rin ako comfortable maghubad.”
After the successful teleserye Tayong Dalawa, Gerald’s next project with his ka-love team Kim Chiu will be a movie with Star Cinema. ABS-CBN.com asked Gerald if he is ready to do another love scene with Kim just like they did in Tayong Dalawa. “Tingnan natin kung mas daring pa sa love scene namin sa Tayong Dalawa. Ayaw naman naming ulitin kung ano ‘yung nagawa na namin. Game ako sa love scene pero sana maganda pa rin ‘yung labas sa screen.” Details about the movie are still under wraps and all that the 20-year-old actor would share was that the film will be a big treat to all the loyal “Kimerald” fans. “Maraming dapat abangan sa movie namin ni Kim. Ipinapangako namin sa lahat ng fans na kikiligin sila,” he said.
After the movie, Gerald and Kim will start taping for their next teleserye which will also star Kris Aquino. Gerald said that he hopes this project will push through because he is excited to be working with the Queen of All Media. “I hope so matuloy. I’m very excited to be working with her. Wala pa ngang concept. Ako nga nagulat sa The Buzz nung sinabi niyang kasama pala siya. Sana talaga matuloy ‘yung teleserye na ‘yun.”
On the relationship front, Gerald, who has been vocal about his courtship of Kim, still has to own up to rumors claiming that the two already have a serious commitment which they are keeping secret. “Ewan ko. Ano sa tingin niyo? Kami naman, what you see is what you get. Basta happy kami ni Kim,” Gerald said.
Jericho Rosales was one of the celebrities who risked their lives to help save the victims of the Ondoy tragedy. Jericho braved rising floodwaters using only his surfboard to rescue people stranded in their homes. “Wala 'yun, maraming-marami pang iba na hindi kilala na nagtutulong-tulong. Saludo talaga ako. God bless the family of the construction worker who saved 30 lives [and died after one rescue]. Kasi wala naman ['yun ginawa ko, e], matagal na akong nagsu-surf, ten years na. Kaya ko namang mag-paddle sa tubig, eh. To be honest with you I didn’t want any interview about that because I believe na kung ano yung ginawa ko, it's not that great.”
Jericho admitted that the heavy rains brought about by Typhoon Ondoy were scary, but he realized that he should not just sit and wait in his home until the flood subsided. He said that he needed to take action and help those who needed to be rescued.
“For me, the great thing about it, I guess, [is that] I hoped I inspired other people to help as well. For example, my friends, a day after [the storm] lumabas sila, dala-dala na nila ang surfboards nila. Buong Aloha team namin, surfers talaga, nandun na sa Pasig at sa Cainta. More than 20 of them. The next day nasa helicopter na sila dropping off [relief] goods.”
The actor also reacted to criticisms that he only went out to help his neighbors for the sake of publicity. “There are many ways to promote myself, but you know kung ano man ang naiisip ninyo I don’t actually need to promote myself because it's not really my job. I'm not running for politics.”
Jericho also revealed some of the incidents that have left their mark on him since then. “Merong time noong gabi na nagpa-paddle ako sa streets, hindi ko kabisado talaga. Natatakot ako [sa current kasi a] few hundred meters away, ilog na 'yun, e. Sumisigaw kami, 'May tao ba diyan?’ [Then] biglang may sisigaw. Then there was one question that hit me, [someone asked,] 'Titigil ba ang ulan?' Sabi ko, 'Titigil po in Jesus's name. May tutulong na po diyan.’ They just wanted to talk to me [for] assurance lang. Sabi ko, 'May MMDA na po diyan, may salbabida po kami. Ito po ang linya magkakabit po kami. Kailangan po namin ng hagdan.’ True enough, tumigil ang ulan. It was one of the most solid at totoong time sa buhay ko.”
The actor had preferred not to talk about what he had done since he felt no need for it. But Genesis, the talent management agency he belongs to, enlightened him. “I was asking Sir Gary (Valenciano) and my pastors. Sabi ko, 'What's the point of [talking about it in public?]’ They said, 'Point is, you inspire other people to do it so go ahead and talk about it, tell them what you did.’ I've been invited to some relief centers and I asked, 'What am I going to do there?' They say, 'Just talk to them.' Parang 'yun ang time na na-realize ko how depressed our country was that time. 'Yung simpleng encouragement lang talaga na-boost ang morale nila.”
The tragedy has also left him some life lessons he won’t likely forget. “What I learned from the bagyo is that it doesn't really matter who you are. It really doesn't matter where you are standing. It doesn't matter whether you live in a big house or you're driving a nice car. What matters is what you are and what's inside your heart. Sabi ko 'nung araw na 'yun, habang nagpa-paddle ako, 'Kapag tayo binaha, hinubaran at walang matitira, pare-pareho lang tayo."
“Sa buhay ng tao may oras para tumawa, may oras para umiyak. May oras para magpugay, may oras para magluksa. May oras para manahimik, may oras para mag-ingay. Sa buhay natin may mga oras na ganito dumadaan ang bagyo, 'di ba?” Ang purpose ng ulan minsan is to clean the air, clean the environment. Maybe a tragedy like this happened in our lives to clean our hearts to clean our mind, to clear away all the bad things in our lives. And that after the rainy days, the sun will shine again.”
He also had words of encouragement for the survivors of Ondoy and for the whole Philippines. “I'm so sure po na kung ano man ang nangyayari ngayon ay may magandang epekto. Mas magiging matibay kayong tao, mas magkakaroon kayo ng maraming kaibigan. Mas magkakaroon kayo ng malinaw na pananaw sa buhay at mas makikilala niyo si God kung sino talaga siya. God just wants to make you feel that He loves you unconditionally. He just wants to make you restore [your life] at iayos ang lahat ng bagay. Don't waste your time thinking about negative stuff. Start thinking about good things. If you're going to spend your time thinking about something, think about good things and it will actually make you feel good.”

“When a man transforms into a wolf,” he tells the magazine, “all of his clothes get shredded. When he comes back to human form, he’s wearing ripped jeans, and that’s about it. It’s the way it was written. The great thing about this series is we stay true to the books.”
