Jak Roberto Reveals The Qualities Of Barbie Forteza That He Likes The Most

JAK ROBERTO is one of the showbiz wannabees who started with the late Kuya Germs’ Walang Tulugan who has now made a name for himself as the Pambansang Abs. Now that his primetime show, “Meant to Be”, has ended, Jak can still be seen in four shows: “Sunday PinaSaya”, “Unang Hirit”, “Bubble Gang” and “Dear Uge”.

How did it feel when it became obvious that Barbie Forteza’s mom favor him to be her partner in “Meant to Be” and not Ken Chan? “Actually, ang pinapaboran niya roon is Andoy, yung character ko,” he explains. “Kasi sa aming apat sa ‘MTB’, si Andoy yung parang santo, the underdog. I would say nadadala lang sa story ang mom niya kasi sabi ni Barbie, one time, sinabihan siya ng mom niya: ‘Bakit mo inaapi si Andoy?’ Kaya boto siya sa akin. But it’s true na naging malapit nga ako sa mom niya kasi sinasabayan ko silang kumain ng dad ni Barbie pag breaktime. Pareho kaming may pet dogs na napagkukuwentuhan namin. Kapag lumalabas kami para manood ng sine, kasama sila at nag-uunahan pa kami sa pagbabayad ng ticket. Ayaw nilang ilibre ko sila.”

So is he courting Barbie now? “As of now, we’re very close friends lang talaga. Hindi ako nagmamadali. Mas magandang foundation daw yung close friendship. Ayokong pangunahan kasi baka magkailangan lang kami. E, as of now, very comfortable kami sa isa’t isa. But I’m not closing the possibility na maging kami balang araw.”

What does he like in Barbie? “Una kaming nagkasama, sa ‘Half Sisters’, kilala na siya noon, nag-uumpisa pa lang ako, pero very approachable na siya. May innate charm siya, masayang kasama sa set. Very professional pa. Sa MTB, 30 minutes siya earlier than call time kaya mahihiya ka kapag late kang dumating sa set. Maalaga rin siya sa aming mga kasama niya.”

What can he say about the posts of his detractors showing his pictures then and now, implying that he underwent retoke? “Totoo naman pong nag-iba ang hitsura ko. Sungki-sungki ang ngipin ko noon, na naayos dahil sa braces. Mataba ako, so nag-gym ako. Maitim din ako noon so natuto akong mag-body scrub, magpa-facial. So may mga nabago talaga sa akin.”

With his sister Sanya Lopez’ career now also doing well with the success of her first lead role in “Haplos”, they’re seriously thinking of getting their own house. “Kasi sa ngayon, we’re just renting a house in Tandang Sora. Gusto naming kumuha ng bahay na huhulugan namin but eventually, magiging amin.”
