Kapamilya comedian Empoy Marquez finally aired his reaction after some people in the online world claimed that he looks like John Lloyd Cruz now.
KAMI learned that the aforementioned actor was interviewed about this in a recent episode of “Tonight With Boy Abunda.”
The claims started when a black-and-white photo of John Lloyd circulated online, creating rumors that he will be making a showbiz comeback.
The netizens initially speculated that the artist in the viral photo was Empoy and not the “One More Chance” star due to the style of his hair.
However, it was later on revealed that John Lloyd was really the person in the photo and he was endorsing a Beef Pita Doner.
Because of this, Empoy was asked about his thoughts that he is now being compared to the multi-awarded film and television actor.
The program's host also showed some photos of the two ABS-CBN celebrities to see their current similarities in terms of looks.
Empoy just laughed out loud upon seeing the pictures and he jokingly stated that he is happy because John Lloyd “idolizes” him.
“Masaya ako dahil idol niya ‘ko. Magkamukha naman talaga kami ni John Lloyd dati pa,” he funnily quipped.
