James Reid says he stopped school because kids would take photos of him, sell them to others

Published

Even before he became famous as a an actor, James Reid apparently was already some sort of a celebrity when he was still studying in a Makati school.

Unfortunately, this was also the reason why he decided to stop coming to school because of the unwanted attention he got from fellow students.

In an interview on Fun with Dumb, James revealed he only lasted for a month in that school before eventually quitting and changed to home schooling.

Born and raised in Australia, the Kapamilya actor moved to the Philippines when he was 16 years old with his mom and went to Makati Science High School.

“When I first went there, I was 16, to go to school, it lasted like a month,” he shared. “After a month, I was like I can’t do this anymore.”

When asked whether he was bullied, James replied, “It’s not even bullying. I just felt awkward by it because some kids would like take photos of me in the classroom and sell it to other kids.”

“Every time I come to school, people would like, scream. And I was like, you know what I don’t think I can do this,” he added.

Didn’t have an audition with PBB

Another thing James shared is that he didn’t go through a normal audition with Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) where he was proclaimed the eventual winner in the 2010 Teen Clash Edition.

He said a guy approached him when he was walking down the street one night and gave him a card. The same guy popped up again the next night while he was eating at a restaurant with his dad to convince them both to go to ABS-CBN.

It was there where he met the director who put him in PBB.

“And then, I met a director, he was like, ‘I like this guy. Let’s put him on this show.’ I was like, ‘What’s the show?”, ‘It’s Big Brother.’ So within a couple of days, I was inside the house already. I didn’t have to do an audition,” James recalled.

James’ career took off after his stint at PBB and he was paired as a love team with his former girlfriend, Nadine Lustre.

Tom Rodriguez sinagot na ilang katanungan tungkol sa kanilang hiwalayan ni Carla

Published

Sa kauna-unahang pagkakataon, nagsalita na si Tom Rodriguez upang sagutin ang ilang katanungan tungkol sa kontrobersiyal na hiwalayan nila ng kaniyang dating misis na si Carla Abellana.

Kay Ogie Diaz nagpaunlak ng panayam ang Kapuso actor na kasalukuyang nasa Las Vegas, Nevada ngayon; ilang buwan simula nang pumutok ang balitang may matinding pinagdaraanan ang ex-couple.

Kabilang sa mga diretsang itinanong ni Ogie kay Tom ay tungkol sa kaniyang tunay na kasarian na ayon sa mga dating kumalat na balita ay siyang dahilan ng kanilang paghihiwalay ni Carla.

Ayon kay Ogie, sari-sari kasi ang lumabas na haka-haka noon kaya nais niyang malaman ang totoo; “May babae ba o may lalaki si Tom?”

“Bading ba si Tom?” diretsahang tanong ng talent manager.

“If that’s the worse that someone can call me. That’s not an insult to me. Most of the best people I know happen to be of that persuasion. Happen to be gay,” paliwanag ng aktor.

Iginiit din ni Tom na hindi siya nababahala kung marinig man ang mga balita tungkol sa isyung ito dahil wala naman umano itong katotohanan.

Muling humirit si Ogie na baka raw sabihin ng mga manonood na ‘paligoy-ligoy’ lamang ang aktor kaya sana ay ‘yes or no’ lang ang isagot.

“No,” ang maagap naman na turan ng dating mister ni Carla.

Tungkol naman sa tanong na kung mahal pa niya si Carla, ani Tom, “Of course. Hindi naman agad-agad mawawala yun. But like I said, it will transform into other things. Siguro the love may never disappear but it will change. It will develop, it will grow on its own way. Whether together, apart, it will grow on its own way.”

Inamin din ng aktor na nakagawa nga siya ng pagkakamali subalit kailan man umano ay hindi niya napagbuhatan ng kamay ang kaniyang dating misis.

“Tao lang ako. I have my mistakes, siguro hindi ‘yung mga binibintang sa’kin per se, but I have things that I have to be accountable for,” wika pa nito.
