Gerald Anderson Loses Weight for 'Budoy!'

Hunk actor Gerald Anderson is preparing for his challenging role in the upcoming ABS-CBN's TV series "Budoy!" And part of his preparation is losing weight!

Gerald revealed during his interview that he already lost 15 pounds! He said that he had to exercise and follow a strict diet to get back in shape.

"Siyempre kailangan po bagong itsura, of course," he shared!

"Fifteen pounds, actually, 185 pounds to 170 pounds. Sa diet ito, exercise, cardio," he added.

Gerald even admitted that he needs to lose weight not only because for "Budoy" but also because he is becoming overweight!

"Oh yes, overweight [na ako]. Actually sabay kami ni Sam (Milby), galing kaming States, kain kami nang kain doon. When I got back, doon nag-start na akong mag-research, mag-diet at mag-exercise. So I'm happy sa weight ko ngayon, mas magaan, mas fit," the hunky young actor further shared.

Gerald even described his new character as "Budoy" during his interview with ABS-CBN. He shared: "Si Budoy ay isang 20- to 22-year-old man [pero] ang isip niya is 10 years old. Ang makikita niyo doon, ang journey ng buhay niya. 'Yung sino ba talaga ang pamilya niya at saan siya manggagaling, bakit siya ayaw tanggapin ng mga tao eh araw-araw ang ginagawa niya lang ay mag-smile sa tao at tinutulungan niya ang tao, tapos di siya tinatanggap. Isang mali lang parang napakalaki na ng ginawa niya."

This is not the first time that Gerald portray a character with a disability. He already played a man with Tourette Syndrome in the "Lubid" episode of "MMK! He got a 'Best Performance by an Actor' award in that said role!
