Even after she brought home the third Miss Universe crown and made her own film, Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach said she still would want to pursue her dream to become a leading lady in a James Bond movie.
“Nakabantay ako doon kasi alam kong may lalabas na bago (I’m looking at it closely because I know there will be an upcoming film),” Pia told reporters.
“They are really trying to experiment already with the cast so it means that it’s gonna be really different this time. Even sina Esther (Swan), Miss Universe, IMG, they all know that I want something like that. If not that, something like that,” she added.
Pia shared that the entire Miss Universe Organization knows about her dream, and she still hoping that someday it would happen.
The former Miss Universe, however, said that she must prepare herself first before jumping into a startup.
“Busy kasi ako dito. Dapat nandoon ako so I get stuff there (I’m still busy here. I should be there to get my stuff). For example, we’ll start first as leading lady sa music videos and then we’ll slowly work our way up. But it’s still there. It’s still at the back of my mind,” Pia explained.
She added that she is planning to get the scholarship waiting for her at the New York Film Academy.
Apart from her showbiz projects in the country, Pia is also committed in accomplishing her duties with IMG as an ambassador of Miss Universe.
“Usually ngayon, puro Miss Universe na events yung ina-attendan ko kapag nasa US [United Stated] or nasa ibang bansa. Lahat parating tungkol sa Miss Universe (As of now, usually I attend Miss universe events every time I’m in the U.S. or in other countries. Everything is just about Miss Universe),” she stressed.
According to Pia, they were trying to do something new but it will take a while before people forget that she is a Miss Universe and that she needs to “repackage” herself to be a new celebrity.
While waiting for her Hollywood opportunity, Pia said that she would focus first on her local showbiz career. She even thanked that she was given an opportunity to fulfill her dream to become an actress.
After starring in a comedy superhero film, The Revengers Squad, Pia will now be leading a romantic-comedy movie My Perfect You, along with actor Gerald Anderson. This film will be launched on March 14 in cinemas nationwide.
