- Robin Padilla laments the lack of respect that young artists show
- He experienced it firsthand with younger artists today
- 'Dinaanan' was the term used by Robin
Robin Padilla is undeniably one of the veteran actors in the Philippine showbiz industry. He has been an actor for decades, which makes him well-respected in the showbiz world.
While many respect Robin, the 48-year-old actor lamented the fact that there are younger stars who seem not to understand the value of respect.
According to Robin, he has been a witness to younger generation actors who don't know how to even make a simple greeting when meeting older actors and actresses.
He experienced "dinaanan lang" by these young new stars who didn't even utter a single greeting.
In an interview made by PEP, Robin narrated how this culture of disrespect seems to pervade among young stars.
“Ngayon kasi, medyo may kulang dun, e,” stated the actor.
“Mga bata pa, pag nakita mo, di ka pinapansin. Nasasalubong ka sa elevator. Parang, ‘Di yata ako napansin ng batang yun, ah!’"
"Parang gusto mong kalabitin pa, e, ‘Ay, ako po si Robin Padilla po,'" lamented the Bad Boy of Philippine movies.
"Ganun lang. Hindi mo naman pinipilit sila."
Robin said that he is saddened by this attitude of younger stars today considering that such disrespect was not tolerated during their times.
“Nalulungkot ako, kasi nung panahon natin, bawal yun! Pagagalitan ka ng produksiyon mismo, [si] Boss Vic mismo kakausapin ka, di ka puwedeng bastos sa matatandang artista," elaborated Robin.
He clarified that he is not compelling younger stars, but it's just that as someone older, he is looking for the respect that must be accorded to them as older celebs, just like the way they have been respectful to stars older than them.
