John Lloyd Cruz can just be thankful for his luck. Male showbiz rookies are being asked to build abs and do pa-bebe waves, and yet he, a thespian in the industry, has been snatching projects, awards, and endorsements with his blazer and pudgy mid-section intact.
A canned tuna brand might have coaxed him into stripping once, but Lloydie made more headlines after a suspected penis accident and coming out as art’s biggest fan. That one time we actually cared about his pecs was when we all felt violated by his topless torso that tried sexing our brains.
God knows that clothed John Lloyd is best John Lloyd. And, like all of you, we want to know how that worked for him.
