Like any star in the showbiz industry Kapuso actress Marian Rivera had her fair share of controversies. Many of her detractors claim that Marian has a snobbish personality, although her most fervent supporters will quickly deny this. A recent interview with PEP may shed some light on Marian’s true attitude after actor Kristoffer Martin shared his encounter with GMA Network’s very own ‘Primetime Queen.’
According to Kristoffer he personally experienced the heartwarming love of the actress towards her fellow celebrities.
“Sobrang iba, sobrang iba yung pagmamahal ni Ate Yan sa mga tao. Sobra siyang mag-alaga, sobrang tropa e. Alam mo yung nanay ka na pero tropa ka,” he shared.
The 23-year-old Kapuso actor could not help but be in awe of the kind of person Marian truly is. Based on Kristoffer’s interview, the actress is actually very down to earth.
“Yun yung masarap na bonding kay Ate Yan, parang hindi niya tinitingnan yungs sarili niya as ganito (higher than others).”
He admitted that he became intimated with Marian the first time he worked with her.
“Syempre Marian Rivera siya, first time mo siyang makakatrabaho maiintimidate talaga e,” he remarked.
He recounted how he made a few mistakes while in the presence of Marian especially during their first scenes.
“May eksena kami na sobra akong nag-i-stutter, as in kinakabahan ako, Marian Rivera nasa harapan ko pero after nun sobrang usap, sobrang dami ng kwento.”
However, he immediately explained that the actress was very friendly on set.
“Pero si Ate Yan, the first day, the first word na sasabihin mo sa kanya, ibi-break niya kaagad yung wall e, na hindi dapat ganyan, magkakaibigan tayong lahat, pamilya tayong lahat.”
Kristoffer then revealed that Marian has been a good confidant to him. He shared that he frequently shares stories with actress and the latter herself is also very open towards the young actor.
“Sobrang ate, literal na ate siya!,” he exclaimed.
Moreover, Kristoffer shared an instance wherein Marian became concerned over him.
“May isang beses na pangit yung wardrobe ko nung mga kapanahunan na nag guest ako sa Party Pilipinas… tapos siya pa nag ask sa mga wardrobe na ‘Palitan niyo ang damit nito ayoko na lalabas ‘yan ng ganyan, ganyan ang echora'”.
Furthermore, he also shared that the most unforgettable encounter he had with the actress was when he happened to share a personal matter to Marian and he was amazed because the actress did not judge him.
“Nung sinabi ko sa kanya, hindi niya ako jinudge. Sobrang suportado daw niya na anjan lang daw siya.”
Kristoffer Martin strongly disagreed with the allegations towards the actress being ill-mannered. According to him, Marian is the type of person whom you should talk first before you can make a judgment.
“Yun nga yung masarap ipagtanggol kasi hindi naman talaga ganun e,” he clarified.
