Cindy Miranda: It's okay to be weird

Cindy Miranda

Former beauty queen-turned-actress Cindy Miranda considers herself weird.

Cindy made the revelation during a Zoom press conference for her latest movie "Reroute" which arrives on Vivamax on Jan. 21.

"Sabi nung mga kaibigan ko na first time kong na meet, sobrang behave ko raw po. Pag tumitingin daw ako, parang nakakatakot daw po at hindi raw ako nagsasalita. They feel na galit daw ako sa kanila. Actually malabo po yung eyes ko. At times feeling nila snob ako at hindi namamansin, hindi ko lang talaga sila makita," said Cindy. "It's just that I don't see things clearly. MInsan pag sobrang clear ang nakikita mo, then nakikita mo reaction. Destructed ka na at bothered. You feel na may reaction sila sa lahat ng ginagawa mo."

She added: "Sa tutoong buhay, mahirap po akong magtiwala. That's why naka-isolate ako palagi. But once na nagtiwala ako, tiwalang-tiwala talaga ako. But you know, ang natutunan ko po, habang tumatanda, hindi mo puwedeng i-judge yung tao when you see them the first time.

"There are some people talaga na weird. Feeling ko I'm weird. Hindi ako normal like my other friends when they communicate with people. I categorized myself as weird. But I'm not a bad person naman po," Cindy said.

"Pero sana bigyan ng chance ang lahat. Hangga't wala naman silang ginagawang masama sa'yo yung tao, kung ano man yung galaw niya or itsura niya. I think I need to trust more. Mahirap yung ikaw lang lagi sa sarili mo eh."

One of the busiest stars, Cindy said she enjoys working a lot. "Hangga't kaya ko ang trabaho gagawin ko. Tatanda ako at may papalit talaga sayo. I just wanna seize the moment. I just want to make sure I give my best sa ginagawa ko."

For now, Cindy admits she has no time to get serious in a relationship but she can wait.

"Sana ma meet ko siya. Minsan naiingit ako sa ibang friends ko kapag may post sila na magkasama sila. Wala pa naman akong plan mag asawa pero sana maging understanding siya at patient. Sana maintindihan niya ang ginagawa ko," she said.

Cindy said she's taking her craft immensely, adding that there's nothing wrong in doing sexy films. "There's nothing wrong in being pa-sexy naman pero I want to be known as a serious actress din. Hindi lang yung nagpapakita ng skin."

Calling "Reroute" as her best movie so far, Cindy stars opposite Venice Film Festival Best Actor John Arcilla, Sid Lucero, and Nathalie Hart. It is produced by Viva Films.

"Reroute" is a story about a couple, Trina (Cindy Miranda) and Dan (Sid Lucero), who are having marital problems after Dan accuses Trina. While having this problem in their relationship, they decide to travel down south to visit Dan’s dying father.

As they try to reach their destination, they encounter a roadblock, advising all vehicles for a reroute. Tired from driving, Dan gets frustrated after finding out that it would take them another hour if they change their course. He then decides to continue their journey on a nearby shortcut, passing through a rough and deserted road. To add mishaps to their evening, their car suddenly broke down, and here they stumble upon a strange, barefooted man named Gemo (John Arcilla). Gemo offers to help and invites them to stay overnight at his house and then help in fixing their car in the morning. Exhausted from the long travel they had, the couple accepts his offer, even if Trina senses something odd and unusual about Gemo.

As they arrive at his house, they meet Gemo’s wife, Lala (Nathalie Hart), a young woman who also seems strange and seldom speaks. As Trina and Dan get comfortable in their stay, Gemo continuously interviews them. And when his questions become personal, they know something is wrong.

A spine-chilling thriller like "Reroute" requires great acting prowess. Joining John Arcilla is Sid Lucero who has won several best actor awards and has an International Emmy Awards nomination. Viva’s prime actresses Cindy Miranda and Nathalie Hart, who have been making names in the acting scene, upped their game and proved they deserve the roles given to them.

To match the astounding cast is an award-winning director. This film is directed by Lawrence Fajardo, who brought us the internationally-acclaimed movie, Amok. Fajardo has also won multiple directorial and editing awards throughout his career, two of which are from Gawad Urian. Last year, Fajardo presented us intense movies like Nerisa, Mahjong Nights, and MMFF entry A Hard Day.

With a superb cast and a remarkable director, it is with no doubt that "Reroute" will be trending and highly-talked about in the movie for the start of 2022.
