Ruffa: It's hard to be bad
By REYMA BUAN-DEVEZA
Actress Ruffa Gutierrez said that she is enjoying her role as Daniella for ABS-CBN's newest television series "I Love Betty La Fea", despite the fact that it's not easy portraying a villain.
The role is not natural to her because she is nice and very friendly in real life.
Gutierrez admitted that she underwent a workshop to give justice to her character.
"Well actually… ang buong cast talagang nag-workshop… pero at the same time humingi din ako ng one-on-one with 'direk' Laurice Guillen kasi matagal na din akong nag-drama at gusto kong mapaghusayan iyong role ko," she said.
"Gusto ko talagang mapag-aralan para at least mapansin ang aking acting at maging maganda ang feedback o reviews, so talagang I requested for that," Gutierrez added.
The actress said that she is thankful to Guillen for giving her time despite her hectic schedule as director and actress.
"Maganda iyong mga ginawa namin na inaplay ko na… sa eksena," Gutierrez said.
She said that her character as Daniella is really fun to portray and she is giving her best in playing the role.
"This is my role and there's a reason I had this kind of attitude so I might as well play with it na, gawin ko na at give na ang 200%. Bakit kailangang gawing soft ang character na hindi naman soft," she said.
Aside from being strict and snobbish, "Daniella" according to Gutierrez is also a very reasonable character.
"Galit siya sa mga taong kailangang pagalitan, galit siya for a reason and malalaman 'yon sa kanyang past," she said.
Gutierrez said that Daniella hates Betty for being loyal to Armando, who is the president of advertising house Ecomoda. Daniella's ultimate dream is to become the president of Ecomoda.
"I want her to get out of the way para lahat ng paghihiganti ko ay magawa ko at matuloy na, kasi laging nauudlot dahil kay Betty," she said.
Gutierrez made headlines when she decided to end her relationship with estranged husband Yilmaz Bektas. She shared that she is still loveless at the moment.
"Wala nga e, ang corny minsan na-lo-lonely ako," she said.
Gutierrez is mother to two lovely daughters, Lorice and Venice. She said she is now focusing on raising them as well as attending to her career.
"I just feel that I'm blessed... career ko naman ang bigyan ko ng pansin, kasi for how many years naman when I was in Istanbul puro pag-ibig at pamilya ang binigyan ko ng pansin so ngayon naman mga anak ko at career," said the actress.
Guttierrez, one of the big stars of ABS-CBN, said she hopes that people will support her new project.
