Judy Ann Santos And Piolo Pascual Presented As Sun Life Endorsers. Juday Says She's Ready To Work Anew With Piolo, Depending On The Right Project

JUDY ANN SANTOS is proudly presented by Sun Life Financial as their new endorser for their program, Money for Life, along with Piolo Pascual. There are two other endorsers, Charo Santos Concio and Matteo Guidicelli, but they were not present at the presscon held at ABS-CBN. Instead, video presentations with them plugging Sun Life were shown.

Juday says she has always been a Sun Life client. “For the longest time, I’m with Sun Life na, since my child star days pa in ‘Mara Clara’,” she adds. “Kasi I’m not confident na aabot ako ng ganito katagal sa showbiz so for my own peace of mind, kumuha ako ng Sun Life insurance to be more secure about my finances and let your money work for you. And now that I am a mother, I want my kids to have a good education and a bright future, so I also want Sun Life to be the right financial partner by my side. Money for Life is a new approach in financial planning and you can avail of it from Sun Life of Canada, Sun Life Asset Management Company and Sun Life Grepa Financial.”
How does it feel to be reunited with former ka-love team Piolo Pascual as Sun Life Financial endorsers? “We’ve been working together for the longest time din and it’s nice kasi, ito, hindi pelikula kundi we’re working for a cause, with the aim to make Filipino lives get better.”

So how are they now? Would she be willing to work with him again in a new movie? “In due time, given the proper project and the right story, and after I’m back in the right shape para naman hindi ako magmukhang mascot niya. As of now, there’s nothing concrete yet. If it would happen, then it would happen. And I just want to make it clear na okay kami ni Piolo ha. Hindi kami magkagalit. Hindi kami yung tipong nagtatawagan at hindi lang nakikita ng mga tao na nag-uusap kami, but kapag nagkikita naman kami, nagbabatian kami, like when we saw each other sa ASAP.”

She has a comeback movie after giving birth to daughter Luna. This is the Cinemalaya Filmfest entry “Kusina” which will be shown next month. This early, there are talks that she and Nora Aunor, who also has an entry, are the top rivals when it comes to the plum best actress award. What can she say about this?

“Naku, hindi ko naman ginawa ang movie to compete with anyone. Yung ma-nominate lang ako with Ms. Nora Aunor, it’s already a big honor for me. Basta very proud ako sa movie namin and I play a good role as a wife and mother who devoted all her life sa ‘Kusina’, serving selflessly and cooking for the people she loved .”
