In a previous story, we reported the public backlash following Xander Ford’s post on Facebook where he compared himself to the veteran Kita-Kita actor.
Xander Ford–also known in the past as Marlou Arizala–has undergone cosmetic surgery including rhinoplasty which he explained as a ‘career move’.
In an interview with Abante, the sensational Kita-Kita actor said that he doesn’t plan to follow Xander Ford’s footsteps in changing his physical appearance.
“Hindi po, hindi po… hindi po pumasok sa isip ko ‘yung ganu’n, e.
Hindi na po si Empoy ‘pag ganu’n, Kompeyo na ‘yun. Hahaha! Kung ano po ang ibinigay ni God sa akin, ‘yun po ako.”
According to Empoy Marquez, changing any aspect of his physical appearance never crossed his mind even in the past. During the interview, the actor expressed his contentment with what he has right now.
During the interview, Empoy also revealed his feelings on his upcoming movie with Viva Film, “The Barker“. In this film, the actor will be pairing with Viva actress Shy Carlos. Earlier this year, Empoy Marquez starred in the top-grossing indie film “Kita-Kita” with Alessandra de Rossi.

“Hindi naman po, kasi siguro sa ngayon po, natutuwa po sila sa akin. Mga kaibigan ko naman po halos ang mga leading men.”
