Angel Locsin on joining politics: ‘Wala sa utak ko yun’


Angel Locsin has made it loud and clear that she has no plans of entering politics. 

During the live Facebook launch of Regal Movies At Home on Friday with former onscreen partner Richard Gutierrez, the actress-philanthropist belied rumors that she will be running for public office amid her charity works and relief efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In between updates on what the two stars have been up to, Angel was asked if she is planning on becoming a public servant.

“Public servant naman po kami bilang mga artista, e. I think ‘yung buhay naman namin is very public. Lahat naman ‘to ginagawa namin, hindi lang para sa sarili namin, kasi gusto namin magbigay ng entertainment sa mga tao,” she said.

“Pero, politics? Hindi talaga. Sobrang hindi. Wala…Wala sa utak ko ‘yun,” she stressed.

Richard, however, went on to commend Angel by saying, “Si Angel talaga, parang she’s a true leader. She’s a good example, ang dami niyang nai-inspire.”
