We’ve known Paolo Contis since he was introduced as one of the childstars of the afternoon tv show Ang TV. He made us laugh with his funny antics and made us cry with his drama skills. He became a popular child actor together with Patrick Garcia, Camille Pratts among others.
When he reached his teenage years, a lot of young stars were introduced by ABS-CBN (via Star Circle) but still, Paolo never ran out of projects. He appeared in comedy shows and was included in a number of movies.
We all know that he gained weight and he admitted several times that he didn’t get the roles he wnated because he is a bit chubby. Thanks to Dra. Vicki Belo and the Belo Medical Group for helping him gain his confidence by undergoing a liposuction procedure. We all know that in the Philippine entertainment industry, one needs to take good care of his physical looks to get more projects.
Last December 6, I was fortunate enough to meet Mr. Paolo Contis. I am a big fan of his versatility as an actor. He made us cry as a gay son who just came out of the closet in Star Cinema’s Noon at Ngayon. We did appreciate him as a gay beauty queen in the movie Reyna. We hated him in a number of Kapuso telebabad shows yet he makes us laugh at Bubble Gang. Not only that! We were amazed on how he solved the mystery problems at Midnight DJ and oh, he is about to host an educational TV program for kids soon.
VERSATILE talaga, diba?
Paolo Contis is the male counterpart of Katrina Halili in Belo Medical Group’s Liposuction promo. What I like about him is that he never denied the fact that he did undergo the procedure. He is even proud of it! I also admire how disciplined he is in maintaining his figure and his physical health.
He graced the Manila Gay Pride 2008 event last December 6. While waiting for his turn to give the award, I was able to talk to him and sort of “interview” him. He is set to appear in the last soap opera of Dingdong and Marian. He is also set to play a new character in Bubble Gang’s Ang Spoiled segment. He will play another gay role in the movie Civil Status: Single which is produced by Rufa Mae Quinto and he is also set to appear on the cover of a Men’s Health magazine by February 2009.
Meeting a talented actor and a gentleman like Paolo makes me feel lucky. I am hoping to meet him again soon and hopefully star in one of my upcoming works 🙂
Hurray for Paolo! 🙂
