Christopher De Leon Is In The Best Position To Give Advice About Drug Addiction As He Admits He Was Once A User Himself

CHRISTOPHER DE LEON is one actor who’s in the best position to give valuable advice to people who get addicted to substance abuse. He admits he resorted to drugs before and it’s only when he found the Lord and became one of the pillars of the Catholic community Oasis of Love that he became a changed man. He was shocked about what happened to Mark Anthony Fernandez.
“He’s my godson and I hope to visit him one of these days,” he says. “I just want to be there and make him feel that we care, that we love him. Wala ka namang masasabi kapag andun ka na kundi kumusta ka na? Okay ka lang ba? Prison kasi is hell and I’m praying na sana, malampasan niya ito.”

What can he say about Pres. Duterte’s drive against drugs? “Let’s listen to him. Pakinggan natin yung mga babala niya and let’s get serious, let’s stay away from drugs kasi demonyo ang droga. I’ve been there, done that and I was delivered from that because of God. During those days that I was into it, I was losing everything, nobody wanted to get me for projects, friends were shying away from me, my parents were worried like hell, my family, iniwan ako. Wala kang panalo sa drugs. So it’s best to surrender yourself to the Lord. Hang on to Him because eventually, He will make a way for you and your salvation.”

Brother Bo, which is how he’s called in the Oasis of Love, has been playing father roles lately and now that he's turning 60 on October 31, he has accepted that. But now, he’s one of the lead stars in Regal’s sizzling sex-drama, “The Escort”. “I play Gary, a rich businessman. Biyudo na ako and I fall in love with Lovi Poe, a secretary sa escort agency in the same condo building where I live. Niligawan ko and offered to buy her love, but she says her love is not for sale kasi si Derek Ramsay ang gusto niya.”

His role is reminiscent of that of Robert Redford in the Hollywood hit, “Indecent Proposal”. When Derek is hospitalized and Lovi needs money for his surgery, she approached Bro. Bo, but he says he’ll only help her if she'd give in to one of his own indecent proposals. She has to choose from three options: marry him, give her virginity to him, or make love with Derek when he’s healed in front of him. To find out which one Lovi chose, you’d have to see the movie when it opens in theatres on November 2.
