Wonder no more why in-demand actor and endorser AE is so hooked on his vice. It seems to run in the family - and he obviously took it after his dad.
AE started very young in the business, and early on had already shown big potential in acting. But amidst all his successes, handsome AE seems a failure in his battle of the bottle.
AE is the youngest in the family and a breadwinner ever since he joined showbiz. He is admirably a very ideal son and generous towards his family. As a matter of fact, he lived with them for the longest time in an exclusive community east of Manila. Inspite of AE's fame and fortune and the nice and fabulous things surrounding them, AE's family can hardly adapt to the lifestyle change.
Although AE's mother is a very religious woman, the same can not be said of his father who is the complete opposite. The jobless man takes to drinking like water. He and some family members are quite crass and rough, the kind of demeanor you would often see in a rowdy, less privileged environment where decency and order seem alien. Cursing and foul street words are what's normally spoken in and out of the family home.
Dad converts the beautiful home into a 24-hour videoke bar with his friends, drinking and singing their lungs out as if there's no tomorrow - every single day. You think AE would mind? Of course not. In fact, he tolerates them. He is quite lucky 'though that neighbors have been civil and tolerant for quite a time, even though the noise is so turning them upside down. Needless to say, for most people around, AE's love and generosity towards his family seem utterly misplaced.
If you notice, AE guards his privacy very much, especially that concerning his family. Last year was a gloomy year for him, only a handful knew that he got into depression as both his movie career and love life were in disarray. Months ago, he brought his girl to their house for a more private and intimate talk. When drunk dad saw them, he did not mind that there were visitors present and just blurted out (in Filipino), "O ano, dala mo na naman yan, magkakan***** na naman kayo dito!" Everyone was stunned. No one saw it coming.
Poor AE had finally come to his senses -- decided to move out of the family home to give himself more space -- and perhaps privacy and respect he rightfully deserves.
