"When you became one of the biggest stars in this country, didn't the dynamics change? Hindi ka ba nakapagdikta, nakapagsabi na, 'Ito ang direksyon ko. Ito ang gusto kong gawin. Ito ang gusto kong puntahan.' Didn't it happen that way?" Boy asked.
"I would say that the power dynamics did shift a bit. Naranasan ko naman na I was given some right to, kind of, approve certain things that were going on with my career, but I was never empowered na mag-isip on creating or sharing ideas of how I could grow my career or bring my career in a different direction. Before, movie concepts, endorsements, were always pitched to me and they would give me recommendations and for me, nag-start po kasi ako na bata palang ako and wala po talaga akong alam sa entertainment or sa showbiz and all the knowledge that I have now came from my experience growing up in showbiz and so everything that I knew was based on what other people in the entertainment industry taught me and what the industry demanded from me," Liza answered.
The actress explained herself further, clarifying that while she made some decisions for herself, it was not "completely my own."
"Yes, I may have made some decisions for myself, I may have agreed to doing certain things, but I wouldn't say that they were completely my own kasi I had fans to cater to, I had a family to provide for, I had people in the industry that I wanted to impress or make proud, and so I didn't grow up learning how to choose things for myself and really deciding on what I want," she explained.
Eventually, Boy asked for further clarification, "Tama ba ang pagkaunawa ko na ginagawa mo lang lahat ng sinasabi sayo?"
"Opo, kasi masunurin naman ako and alam ko that everybody that was part of my journey... everybody that I worked with, Tito Ogie and ABS-CBN, Quen, the management, they were all knowledgable in what they do. They're all very experienced in showbiz," she said.
"And ina-acknowledge mo yan na natulungan ka nilang lahat?" Boy asked to which Liza answered, "Opo."
ON THE PEOPLE WHO TALKED BEHIND HER BACK
"When I started really falling in love with acting, merong mga moments po like sa taping, this is just in taping, this is not management level or anything. With the script, when I started really understanding how acting really works, started understanding character development and everything, meron pong mga times na I would talk to the director, I would talk to the PAs, I would talk to the writers and be like, 'Sa tingin ko po hindi sasabihin ng character ko 'to. Hindi gagawin ng character ko 'to,'" Liza recalled.
According to Liza, a close friend who was a director eventually informed her that people were allegedly talking behind her back.
"Sometimes they would negotiate like they would say, 'Ah no, kailangan talaga ito mangyari para sa gantong trajectory ng character mo' pero I didn't know that behind my back... actually, a really close director friend of mine told me na they would talk about me behind my back during pre-prod meetings and call me little producer. So ever since, after that, parang I felt like I didn't have the right to bring these up kasi feeling ko nao-offend ko yung mga tao sa paligid ko which was not my intention. I thought as an actor, that was my job also to do, to question and to help improve the story, to be collaborative," she revealed.
Eventually, Boy asked if she informed Ogie, "Didn't you raise this with management? Hindi mo ba kinausap si Tito Ogie? Ang Star Magic? Your management na, 'This is what's happening on set.' Nagsumbong ka ba?"
While she did inform Ogie about it, Liza revealed they weren't able to do anything since she could not tell her former manager who informed her about the news, "Nagsabi po ako kay Tito Ogie but then dahil hindi ko po masabi kung sino ang nagbibigay ng information sakin na yun, we can't really do anything about it."
