John Lloyd Cruz and Gerald Anderson
Comparisons are inevitable in show business and it seems the latest to be pitted against each other are actors Gerald Anderson and John Lloyd Cruz.
Apparently, John Lloyd’s portrayal of a mentally-handicapped character in “The Trial” called to mind Gerald’s portrayal on the TV series “Budoy.”
Gerald maintained that the comparison isn’t justified, mainly because he and John Lloyd portrayed two different characters.
Gerald pointed out that Budoy was suffering from Angelman syndrome, while John Lloyd’s Ronald in “The Trial” suffers from what is described as “mild intellectual disability.”
“Hindi ko pa napapanood (’yung movie) pero sa trailer pa lang, magkaiba talaga sila,” Gerald told ABS-CBN in a recent interview.
He is nevertheless flattered to be mentioned in the same sentence as John Lloyd.
“John Lloyd is John Lloyd. Just to be compared, napakalaking bagay na para sa akin,” Gerald said.
Meanwhile, when asked if he’s willing to work again with erstwhile girlfriend and love team partner Kim Chiu, Gerald said, “Ako naman, basta maganda ’yung project, something inspiring and fulfilling, ’yung makakapagbigay kami ng saya sa mga fans, why not? Pero ABS-CBN pa rin ang magsasabi (at magdedesisyon).”
Gerald Anderson reacted to comments that his acting as a mentally challenged person in his previous series, "Budoy", was better compared to that of John Lloyd Cruz in his newest movie, "The Trial".
