Meg Imperial revealed there were times she was called "plastic" because of her reserved personality!

Back at the digital press conference for the Viva Films offering STEAL, Meg Imperial said people’s impression of her was that she had a reserved personality and that for the year 2021, she aims to socialize more with other people.

Now, at the digital press conference for her upcoming movie Sana All, another Viva Films offering with her as the lead star, Meg proudly said she is learning to socialize more with her co-workers as the new year passes by.

“Every day naman, talagang pinupush ko ’yong sarili ko to wake up early, to have breakfast with them, lunch with them. If magkakaroon man, I’ll always care sa mga ka-trabaho ko. Talagang hindi lang namin iniisip ’yong sarili namin,” the actress told the press last Tuesday, January 26. “That’s what I’m trying to do: not to be selfish and try to bond talaga and understand them.”

Meg adds that she is trying her best to be an outgoing person, rather than being the shy, reserved type. And her resolution is working best for her now.

“Marami akong nagiging kaibigan now sa industry, unlike before na very kaunti lang mga friends ko, piling pili lang dahil nga sobrang reserved ako,” she said. 

However, Meg recalled that there were instances in her life where her actions were misunderstood because of her being reserved, causing her to fall into depression.

“Many times and that caused me depression before ’cause they thought that dahil reserved ako, I’m not being true to myself, I’m being plastic,” she explained. “But, truth is mahiyain lang ako before talaga and ’di lang talaga ako sanay na mag-start ng conversation.”

Meg recounted a specific incident that she was called out for her personality. It was during one lunch, wherein she joined her colleagues to eat but does not talk or engage in conversation.

“They thought na hindi talaga genuine ’yong pinapakita ko, hindi talaga ako sincere sa pakikisama sa kanila, and, sometimes, hindi rin ako sumasabay sa kanila ’cause really, nahihiya din ako and being [...] first time ko doon sa industry, siyempre, ang inaasikaso ko is myself, ’yong script ko, ’yong ganito-ganito na sobrang focused ako sa trabaho na I forgot merong mga tao sa paligid ko na kailangan ko rin pakisamahan,” she said.

The Sana All lead star said she learned a lot from that experience that she has used in her everyday life.

“[I’m] so proud na konti-konti, improving naman [ako],” she said.

Sana All, a movie under Viva Films and BluArt Productions, stars Meg, Arvic Tan, Andrew Muhlach, Pio Balbuena, and Lita Loresca. It is under the direction of Bona Fajardo and will be released in selected cinemas on February 5 and soon on Viva’s digital streaming platform Vivamax.
