Ronnie Alonte was not proud to admit that there was a time in his career when he allowed fame to get into his head when he was still relatively new in the entertainment industry.
Alonte, however, realized that he doesn’t like the person he was becoming then.
“Pagtagal-tagal, hindi pala ako yun. Sabi ko parang hindi ako ito kasi hindi naman ako ganito. Kaya nung na-realize ko yun, bumalik ako sa Biñan, nakipag-[reconnect] ako sa mga kaibigan ko. Doon na ulit na balik na ako na talaga. Hanggang ngayon, ganun pa rin,” he said.
In the same interview, Alonte revealed that being an actor was not really his goal growing up.
While his dream was to really become a PBA player, Alonte noted that he’s grateful for all the opportunities that came his way when he ventured into showbiz.
Currently, Alonte is busy promoting the movie “My Teacher,” which is an entry to this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival.
This is his first MMFF entry since “Seklusyon” in 2016.
