After almost a year of shunning the limelight of the Philippine Cinema, the Queen of Drama is back to give smiles to her adoring fans with her signature tear jerking acting. But it would only be on a part time basis. Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo is ready as ever to give the profession she had come to love another go despite her now being a dedicated mom and a full pledged wife to Ryan Agoncillo and loving mom to Yohan and baby Lucho.
Despite her award winning and time tested unparalleled acting prowess, Judy Ann expressed her hesitance to go back as a public figure. One reason for this is her increasing body figure that is now quite noticeable after conceiving and giving birth to Baby Yohan. Judy Ann is known to have struggled on some weight issues in the past and had overcome is quite sensationally. This year, it would be another hurdle for her to overcome. She had gained a lot of weight and she is on a race to decrease it to make her more appealing to TV screens. Many are quick to notice that she now resembles Sharon Cuneta in her body structure and facial chubbiness.
No matter how tongues wag to criticize her ballooning figure, Judy dismissed it aside stating that her prolonged vacation off the camera had done her good and she is living a blissful life with Ryan which might be some of the contributing factor for her weight gain.
“I promised myself na i-e-enjoy ko lang muna itong mga nangyayari sa akin kasi mula eight years old nagtrabaho naman ako so first time ako nagpahinga ng ganito kahaba. So na-enjoy ko naman siya ng husto. Parang kulang pa nga,” Judy Ann said in an interview with ABS-CBN’s “SNN” on Thursday, March 17.
When asked about her weight, Judy Ann spewed biting lash backs. “Kung may magsasabi sa akin na mataba ako at hindi pa sya nabuntis, tatanunging ko sya ng: Bakit, nabuntis ka na ba?” was the Drama Queen’s hot tirade. Yet, she also shared that she is trying to get back on shape.
“Lucho is now five months. I started going back to the gym when Lucho turned 3 months kasi yun yung tamang proseso daw so the third month saka pa lang ako nagtakbo-takbo unti-unti. Nag gi-gym, nag da-diet,” she shared.
Judy Ann stated that it might take her awhile to engage in a full time job as an actress. One movie a year was all that she could promise because she wants to spend some more time with her family. As of now, her current project is endorsing a milk brand Lactum.
