Dawn Zulueta Says She Is Not Yet Ready For "Cougar" RolesDawn Zulueta related that she may not be ready yet to play a role in a May-December love affair.
“Challenging yun, di ko pa alam and I have to think about it," she said when asked if she will be able to play the character of a "cougar."
“Parang di ko pa naman na-imagine ang sarili ko, ngayon lang 'ata kasi nauuso yung mga cougar-cougar na yan, di ba?"
“Nung panahon ko, let’s say noong dalaga ako, hindi naman masyadong…I mean nangyayari siya pero hindi siya masyadong pinag-uusapan, di ba? Nowadays it’s like... open.”
Even though she is already in her 40s, Zulueta still exudes a radiant glow in her.
During the recently held Bb. Pilipinas Gold, the audience noticed how Zulueta and former Bb. Pilipinas titleholder Alice Dixson outshone the contestants.
Zulueta was flattered with these compliments, but said it was never her intention to seek the attention away from the candidates.
“As a matter of fact, I felt very honored that they choose me to host because it was the 50th year, so napaka-espesyal nang Bb. Pilipinas this year.”
“And then I just realized nga noong Sunday, na next year pala…na tayo rin ang host na country for the Miss Universe, so di ba that’s exciting?”
For now, Zulueta is busy taping for ABS-CBN's "Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin."
She's very grateful to ABS-CBN for giving her worthy projects and reviving her career.
She just finished the highly successful and phenomenal "Walang Hanggan."
Even though Zulueta initially planned to start working again only after the May 2013 elections, she said she couldn't say "no" to ABS-CBN.
Her husband, Anton Lagdameo, is running as congressman in Davao.
“Malaking pasasalamat ko sa asawa ko kasi naiintindihan niya, kasi siyempre pinramis ko nga sa kanya na wala akong trabaho during the campaign period."
But Zulueta cannot pass the opportunity of giving back to ABS-CBN, who she claimed was the one who boosted her career again.
“Gusto ko rin naman na ibalik sa kanila, after all sila rin naman ang nagpa-bongga ng career ko. Lalo na nung binigay nila sa akin ang 'Walang Hanggan.'”
