Tom Rodriguez Misses Dennis Trillo And 'My Husband's Lover'

TOM RODRIGUEZ told his manager Popoy Caritativo that he doesn’t want to accept gay-themed movies for a while. “Kasi after ‘My Husband’s Lover’ on TV, I did two movies about gays, ‘Bekikang’ and ‘Gaydar’, kaya sabi ko, quota na ako diyan,” he says.

So what’s his next project? Is it true Marian Rivera rejected him to be one of her leading men in the new soap that she’s doing? “Wala pa akong bagong project kasi may concert tour kami ni Dennis and Carla Abellana in six cities in the U.S. from California to New York. After that, magpapaiwan ako doon to visit my family in Arizona. Matagal ko na kasi silang hindi nakikita. So bakasyon muna ako. Saka na ako tatanggap ng work, pagbalik ko rito. About Marian rejecting me, I don’t think it’s true. Kasi nagkatrabaho na kami sa ‘My Lady Boss’ where I played her first boyfriend. Okay naman kami.”

He admits missing Dennis Trillo and "My Husband Lover". "Siempre, ilang months din kaming nagkasama and all our co-workers in the show. So I miss the routine of waking up knowing I'd see them when I report to the set for our taping. May nagsasabing sana magkaroon kami ng Book 2 pero it will all depend sa GMA management. Right now, those who miss us can just get a copy of our 'TomDen' album and listen to our songs from the show."

In “Gaydar”, he’s paired with Pauleen Luna for the first time. “I play the driver of the FX taxi na sinasakyan niya lagi at nagkaroon siya ng crush sa akin. Kaya lang, ang last boyfriend niya turned out to be gay so worried siya na baka gay rin ako as she feels her gaydar doesn’t really work for her. The movie is written and directed by Alvin Yapan. Maganda ang pagkakagawa, very entertaining, kaya I’m sure viewers will enjoy it.”

Has any of his girlfriends doubted that he’s gay? “Wala pa namang nagduda sa pagkalalaki ko, even after I did ‘My Husband’s Lover’. Secure naman kasi ako about my manhood ever since.”
