GMA7 Issues 'Fat Notice' to Unfit Talents


Just how important is fitness among actors in the industry? Looks like in both television and movies, actors under network management do not have a choice regarding decisions about their bodies.

While a friend was having dinner yesterday, she saw and had small talk with actor Sid Lucero. She asked him about his projects and what is keeping him busy lately. He intimated to her that he is not as busy as he used to be. Right now, he is bent on working to lose the extra poundage to stay relevant and visible in the industry.

He told her that he was issued a memo by his GMA7 Management that he had to lose weight and be fit or else he would not be given projects. No sane actor would challenge such an order if he wants to survive, literally and figuratively.

If I remember it right, his cousin, Geoff Eigenmann was also given the same order by the management when he looked like he could no longer control himself getting big horizontally. He just had to do it - or he would be jobless.

A few months after, Geoff emerged and surprised everyone with his new buff and muscled body – plus a more handsome look, to boot. Not long after, he gets visible on television again.

Looks like Sid is next in line to hit the gym, too. Good for him, this is a win-win challenge. You get to be fit and look good – then happy all the way to the bank.

Having fun while having funds, so they say. Cheers!

    2. di naman yan discrimination if we're talking about being a leading man...siyempre kung leading man ka you have to look fit...or else gagawin ka na lang komedyante or sidekick once you get fat

    7. Anon 12:19 sige nga, meron ka na kilala na leading man na mataba? Kung sa comedy keri lang, eh leading man role? Image ang nagdadala kahit sabihin mong talent ang puhunan. What is pleasing to the eyes is what the people want.

    9. Sorry pero ABS is different from GMA. Ang puhunan talaga sa ABS ay talent. Plus factor na lang ang looks. Like JLC, he's not as hot as other men, pero tingnan mo naman, sikat sya. And laging may project. Magaling kasi siya. ��

    5. I agree with 1:59 AM. Mas marami ngang magagaling umarte sa GMA pero ang problema, karamihan sa kanila eh hindi nabibigyan ng projects wherein they can showcase more their talent. Are you guys familiar with Jay Gonzaga? Yung gumanap na bff ni Rafael Rosell sa Temptation of Wife? Laging extra o supporting roles ang binibigay sa kanya pero sa mundo ng theatre, he is one the dreamboats. Kalevel na niya halos si Aljur sa hotness pero ang paghuhubad ni Jay ay may kinalaman sa kanyang pag-arte. Yan ang waley sa Aljur niyo, bwahahahaha!

  39. Magkaiba newscaster sa artist. Artist sell illusions, newscasters - ideally or in theory anyway - are supposed to bring the truth. So kebs kung malaki si Jessica, maraming matabang babae.
