It is also important for the award-winning actor to spend time with his family and bond with them.

He shared, “I make sure that we meet once a week. Sinisiguro ko lang na meron kaming time makapag-usap, makapagkuwentuhan kung ano ang nangyayari sa amin. Para sa akin, ito ang totoong buhay, eh. Everything is work, but at the end of the day, you still go home to your family.”
