Ariel Rivera doesn't watch his own movies

DO you know that Ariel Rivera doesn’t watch his own films? “Parang nahihiya kasi ako,” he says.

Not even the first movie he did, “Bakit Labis Kitang Mahal,” with Lea Salonga and Aga Muhlach, for which he won a best supporting actor award? “Ang pinapanood ko lang, movies ni Sharon Cuneta,” he adds.

At the premiere night of his title-roler, “Padre de Pamilya,” he left before the film started. He was with wife Gelli de Belen and their two sons. “Magdi-dinner muna kami,” he says. “We’ll return kapag tapos na ang movie.”

Ariel was based in Canada when he came to Manila in 1990 to be a singer. It turns out an acting career was also waiting for him. “Bale 19 years na ako rito,” he says. “And I love it here.”

He’s glad to be a part of a meaningful film like “Padre de Pamilya.” “It shows how corruption is so rooted in our country that even God-fearing people get corrupted against their better judgment.”

He plays a municipal employee in a small town who’s in charge of health and sanitation permits. He doesn’t like to be corrupt like their mayor (Tessie Tomas) but his family is so poor and his eldest child (Cedric Jose) needs a new computer so he finally gives in to a factory owner who bribes him, but this is uncovered by the media. Ariel’s acting is superb. “Padre de Pamilya” is directed by Cesar Buendia and opens in SM Cinemas today.
