You went to EDSA Dos despite your friendship with presidential son Jinggoy Estrada. And then you lost for Cavite governor in the elections that followed.
I don’t want to talk about that sana. I went to EDSA Dos because I believed in it. Sabi nila traydor daw ako na kaibigan. But you can run the videotape again and again, and you won’t hear me saying anything negative against them. All I said was they should step down because that was the clamor of the people.

Of course, there were critics who said your appearance there was politically motivated.
That’s what they said. But I didn’t need power. I was still governor then. Actually, kung hindi ako umakyat do’n baka mas tumagal ako sa posisyon ko. But I have no regrets. And I’m not asking for power from the present administration.

So have you patched things up with Jinggoy?
I’ve said I’m sorry many times, but we’re not on speaking terms yet.

What political lessons have you learned from your father, Sen. Ramon Revilla?

What about his advice regarding showbiz?
Well, he has been guiding me In my showbiz career. Pero may sarili akjong diskarte. I make sure na iyong pagkakamali ng iba hindi ko na gagawin.

Eight din, for the same reason.

As an actor?
(long pause, smiling) Well, seven lang siguro, although marami na rin naman akong na-achieve. I have been box-office king and best actor awardee a number of times. Versatile naman ako.

As a politician?
Ah, diyan siguro nine, because I give everything. All-out ako diyan.
