Starting Over Again (Filipino Movie English Translation)
Ginny:So why? Tell me why you didn't like it! (her work or proposal) I deserve an explanation!
Marco:What? What did you say?
Ginny:I deserve an acceptable reason.
Ginny:Because I worked on it. I worked hard for it. I invested my time and my effort.
Marco:That's why you need to know what's wrong?
Ginny:Yes! Because if there's a problem, then I'll fix it.
Marco:Because it's not just your time and your effort that you invested in it right? But your heart and soul right? Because you did it for that person whom you thought still trusts and believes in you right? That if you make mistakes... you'd think that she will give you a chance to correct them because she made you believe she loves you; that you're important to her. That you share the same dream. That you vision the same future right? You need to know... why one day when you wake up, everything suddenly changed. Why is she gone? Why are you alone? You need a reason right? You need something to hold onto or understand why you were made to look like a fool. That you looked like shit to everyone, even to yourself. Because you don't know how. You don't know when. You don't know what happened. What's wrong with yourself, why did she leave you?
Marco:How dare you ask for something you refused to give?
Marco:I deserved an explanation. I deserved an acceptable reason!
“Sobra kitang minahal kaya sobrang sakit nung iniwan mo ko. Ang lungkot. Naaalala ko tuwing gabi, pinipilit kong matulog para makalimutan ko yung sakit…”—Marco Villanueva, Starting Over Again (via thattourismguy)

Muling pumirma ng multi-picture contract ang Multimedia Star na si Toni Gonzaga sa Star Cinema. “I am very happy na once again I am officially a Star Cinema talent,maraming-maraming salamat sa Star Cinema for the trust at sa pagkakataon na marenew ako. Maraming, maraming salamat. I have grown so much with Star Cinema, not just as an actress but as a person dahil sa mga beautiful films na nagagawa ko sa kanila, ang dami kong natutunan. I am really excited and I am looking forward to another great year of partnership with them.”
Matapos ang box office hit nilang pelikula ni Piolo Pascual na Starting Over Again na kumita ng halos kalahating bilyon internationally, natanong ng Push si Toni kung hindi ba siya nakakaramdam ng pressure sa mga susunod niyang proyekto na kung hindi man mahigitan ay mapantayan ang kanyang huling ginawang pelikula. “Siguro I think one thing I have learned for ten years with Star Cinema, isa sa mga natutunan ko hindi araw-araw Pasko, parang ganun. May mga moments talaga na nabibigyan tayo ng blessing na kumita ng ganito kalaki yung pelikula or minsan tama lang, minsan breakeven so minsan hindi mo lang siya maabsorb lahat ng nangyayari, you are just really thankful and grateful kahit papaano, nabibigyan tayo ng mga proyekto na tinatangkilik pa rin. With the pressure, siguro sanay na rin na you put so much pressure on it na sana kumita. I guess the second one, ayaw ko na magpa-pressure, yung first kasi na ginawa naming na pelikula na Starting Over… hindi naman namin nilagyan ng pressure, pinagbuti lang namin. Siguro ano na lang more than pressuring myself, I’d rather put an effort and challenge myself to be better sa susunod na pelikulang gagawin.”
Ibinahagi din ni Toni na maliban kay Piolo na pangarap niyang makatrabaho noon, meron pa siyang isang artista na nais niyang makatrabaho kung mabibigyan ng pagkakataon. “Dati bago pa si PJ, isa sa mga pangarap kong makatrabaho ko si Bossing [Vic Sotto]. Yun naman ay pangarap lang, nandun pa din. Katulad ng kay PJ akala ko hindi mangyayari yung day na yun, yung moment na yun, na magkakatrabaho kami. Yung mga nagkaroon ng significant na ano sa buhay ko, siguroone day, hindi naman ako nagmamadali.”
At nang mapunta na sa usapin tungkol sa kanyang kapatid na si Alex na nahaharap ngayon sa mga intriga at kontrobersiya, tulad na lang ng nangyari sa kanila ni Ryan Bang, nagsalita si Toni tungkol dito.“Ano naman, siyempre may kasamang sabunot. I think one thing that’s good about my sister is she’s teachable, she is open to criticisms and she is open to accepting that she has done wrong at may mga mali siya. She is a work in progress, she is getting there sa maturity, and I cannot consider her a veteran in the business, she has still a lot to experience and yun siguro charge to experience ang mga nararanasan niya ngayon and it will help her to become a better person and hopefully help her to know handle situations like these.”
Ikwinento din ni Toni na kapag nahaharap si Alex sa ganitong mga klaseng problema, lumalapit siya sa kanya, “Oo, pero mayhiya kasi alam niya na ang sasabihin ko kaagad, sabi ko sa iyo, hindi ka nakinig sa akin, ako na naman ang tama.”

At the recent gala night of Ponds, Toni Gonzaga retraces her inspiring journey to stardom.
"Fourteen years ago, I started as a screaming fan of Piolo in a softdrink commercial. After so many years, I ended up starring in a movie as his leading lady, with God’s grace of course," she fondly recalls.
Toni is the latest addition to Pond’s roster of beauties including Heart Evangelista, Charlene Gonzalez, Jasmine Curtis, Cheska Garcia-Kramer, and Tweetie de Leon, among others.
Toni Gonzaga’s boyfriend, Paul Soriano, goes onstage to personally welcome Toni as the newest face of Pond’s. Direk Paul was earlier launched as part of PondsMen’s roster of celebrity male ambassadors. “It is beyond our wildest dreams to be part of such a great family,” says Toni.

Toni Gonzaga knows the pulse of the audience so well
Many think her wit, humor, talents and gift of gab catapulted Toni Gonzaga to stardom. Few realize that the girl who nearly didn’t get the guy in the movies, the girl who often played characters that find themselves flat-footed in situations only to get through these with chin up, the girl who says outrageously candid one-liners in interviews that end up as Twitter trending topic a few minutes after these are uttered—is a girl who delivers the goods every single time because she understands the Filipino audience so well.
In an interview with Bulletin Entertainment, the so-called Multi-Media Star talked about the Pinoy psyche and how the nation determines whom to champion.
Surprise, surprise: It’s almost always the underdog.
“Ang Pilipino, may maawain na puso. It’s our culture. If you go back to history, sinakop tayo ng madaming lahi kaya many of us have meek personality, mahiyain. Simple lang tayo pero we’re sympathetic at ang laging hinahanap natin ay puso,” she said to that effect.
We opened the subject in light of some people’s observation that in local reality and talent shows, contestants who have a sob story seem to automatically have advantage over those who don’t.
“Gusto kasi ng Pilipino na laging nakaka-relate (sa kapwa niya). Gusto ng Pinoy malaman kung san ka nagsimula, san ka ba galing, bakit ka ba nag-a-artista. It’s not just about what you can do but also why you do it.”
It’s not that talent doesn’t factor in. In a nation acknowledged worldwide to have talented people teeming in every nook and cranny, that’s a given. However, he who speaks directly to and captures the heart of the people, stands out and could have key in the hole.
“Kung sino ang may pinakamahirap na buhay…siya ang ginagawang panalo (ng mga tao),” she mulled aloud.
Is this something that needs correcting? Should the culture be changed? We didn’t ask Toni these questions but she did say that when it comes to the Pinoy audience “wag mo silang pagiisipin—ibigay mo sa kanila (kung sino ka) at tataggapin ka nila.”
“Hindi ‘yung parang bubuksan pa nila yung package—buksan mo na sa kanila.”
No one has to take Toni’s opinions as gospel truth. But no one can deny that she who has been hailed Princess of Philippine Movies, Box Office Queen, Best Emcee, Best Female TV Host, Best Talent Search Program Host and Best Concert Performer of the Year at various points in her career has at least earned the right to speak her mind on the subject.
‘Bring them on a high’
On Oct. 3, Toni will be mounting a major concert at the Mall of Asia Arena. Titled “Celestine” and produced by DSL Events and Production House Inc., it celebrates her 15 years in show business.
“Celestine” director Paolo Valenciano was with her at the time of interview and they agree that the concert aims to highlight some facets of the artist that aren’t given the opportunity to shine in her other endeavors.
This means that aside from performing some hit cover songs, the singer-actress will be doing her original smash tunes including “We Belong,” “Catch Me I’m Falling,” and “Kahit Na.” There will be few medleys, if at all, and, no, it won’t be a marathon show lasting till wee hours of the morning.
“It’s better na dalhin mo ang audience on a high then end it there,” she said. “Pag more than that, matutulog na sila.”
Beyond showcasing her singing and dancing prowess, Toni hopes the concertgoers will see her in another light; one that’s not “filtered.”
“I’ll get to share a part of me sa audience that they don’t often see. When you sing live, you interact with your audience—andyan sila sa harap mo—so when the songs touch someone’s heart kita mo agad.
“Kung may ma-awe, may maiyak, you know nakaka-relate sila. Everything will be spontaneous even the spiels. I’ll share my thoughts with them. They’ll see another side of me na maybe hindi pa nila alam.”
It’s Toni just being herself. And it’s why people just love her.
Still, it doesn’t prevent her from preparing this early for the big day, like brushing up on books about marriage. “Plano ako nang plano, hindi ko naman alam kung matutupad,” she admitted.
Gonzaga is leaving matters in God’s hands, citing the biblical quote: “Many are the plans in a man’s heart but it’s always His purpose that prevails.”
“So ako talaga this year – and the coming years – sabi ko, ‘Bahala na kayo Lord.’ Ganoon talaga, I surrender talaga, I give up.”
Earlier this year, Gonzaga’s close friend, Bianca Gonzales, refuted rumors that the “Home Sweetie Home” star and the director are already engaged, with Soriano supposedly proposing to his girlfriend while they were in New York to welcome the New Year.
