nang maghubad uli si janvier

Kinausap ko si Ihman (manager ni Janvier) at ipinagpaalam ko kung pwedeng ma-interview ang alaga niya para sa promo ng Roxxxanne. Ganito talaga pag indie, writer-director-producer noon, reporter ngayon. Tipidity productions ito kaya ako na rin ang kumakarir sa publicity.

Pero sabi ko magiging brutal ang mga tanong ko. At ayoko ng mga sagot na pa-cute. Kung kumalat na sa internet ang nude pic mo, magpapa-cute ka pa ba? Nakita na ng mga tao ang titi mo. Ano pa ang pwede mong itago?

Pero magugulat kayo, dahil marami pa.

Sa mababasa n’yong interview, makikita n’yo kung paano hinubaran uli ni Janvier ang sarili niya.

At kung ako ang tatanungin n’yo, ito ang pinakamatinding paghuhubad na pwedeng gawin ni Janvier sa buong buhay niya.

JL
Eto Janvier, babasahin ko sa yo ang isang comment na iniwan sa blog ko tungkol sa latest post ko sa yo. Hindi ko ito pinayagang ma-publish, pero tinago ko para makita mo.

Eto ang comment: “Pahada naman yang si Janvier eh. Tsupain ko yan.” Tanggap mo na bang pag nakikita ka ng mga tao, ang unang pumapasok sa isip nila sex?

(Halata kong medyo uneasy si Janvier, ngumiti lang.)

JD
Hindi naman po siguro.

JL
May iba ang tingin sa yo naglalakad na titi. Tanggap mo na ba yun?

JD
Trabaho lang naman para sa akin ang paghuhubad, Direk. Kung ano ang isipin sa akin ng mga tao, wala na akong magagawa.

JL
At siyempre sasabihin mo sa akin, naghuhubad ka para maiahon sa hirap ang pamilya mo.

JD
Para po sa Mama ko. Lahat ng ginagawa ko, para sa kanya. Hindi po biro ang pinagdaanan niya para lang mapalaki kami ng maayos.

JL
Gaya ng?

(Hindi agad sumagot si Janvier, parang naninimbang kung ano ang pwedeng sabihin.)



JD
Nung bata pa po ako, bigla kaming nilusob ng crew ng “Magandang Gabi Bayan”, pinagbintangan nilang bugaw ang nanay ko.

JL
Sino daw ang binubugaw niya?

JD
Kami pong mga anak niya. Ang totoo, naghahanap lang siya ng mag-i-sponsor sa studies namin, pa’no walo kaming magkakapatid, hindi niya kami mapag-aral lahat. Pero akala ng mga tao binubugaw niya kami.

JL
Sino naman ang mga malisyosong taong yan, at nireport pa talaga ang nanay mo sa “Magandang Gabi Bayan”?

JD
Yung mga kasama po namin sa kalye.

JL
Kalye? Anong kalye?

JD
Sa Ermita, Direk. Minsan sa U.N. Avenue… sa Luneta. Kung saan kami abutin ng gabi.

JL
Teka, naguguluhan ako. Tumira kayo sa kalsada?

(Napatingin ako sa manager ni Janvier sa tabi ko. Hindi ito umiimik.)



JL
Seryoso ka ba? Wala kayong bahay? Wala kayong kamag-anak na pwedeng tirhan?

JD
Taga-Surigao po ang Mama ko, wala siyang pamilya dito. Ang Papa ko naman po, taga-Laguna.

JL
O, e ba’t hindi kayo tumira sa Papa mo?

JD
Siya po ang tinatakasan namin. Lagi po kasi kaming binubugbog. Lalo na si Mama. Muntik na niyang mapatay si Mama.


JL
Ilang taon ka nung mapadpad kayo sa Ermita?

JD
4-5 po.

JL
Gaano kayo katagal tumira sa kalsada?

JD
11 na po ako nung kunin ako ng MYRC.

JL
Ano yun?

JD
Juvenile center po.

JL
Teka, 6 years kayong nakatira sa kalsada? Lahat kayo? Paano kayo nabuhay?

JD
Nung nagtagal po nag-squatter kami sa estero sa may U.N. Tapos nag-waitress ang Mama ko sa Ermita. Kaming magkakapatid, kung anu-anong trabaho. Ako po nagbenta ng diyaryo.

JL
Buti hindi kayo nababagansiya?

JD
Maraming beses, Direk. Ang pinakamatindi nung naghahanap kami ng matutulugan sa Ermita Center, umalis sandali si Mama, pagbalik niya isinasakay na kami sa mobile ng mga pulis. Pinagbabato ni Mama yung presinto para pakawalan kami.

(Tumigil sandali sa pagkukuwento si Janvier, parang iiyak.)

JD
Pinakawalan kami ng mga pulis pero si Mama ang pinagtripan nila. Binugbog nila, tapos hinubaran, saka kinulong. Pagkatapos po nun, madalas nang magkaroon ng breakdown si Mama.


JL
Anong klaseng breakdown?

JD
Minsan bigla na lang po siyang iiyak, magwawala, tapos maglalakad nang nakahubad sa Ermita.

JL
Anong ginagawa nyo?

JD
Susundan po namin siya hanggang mapagod siya. Basta makatulog siya, OK na siya paggising niya.

JL
Buti sa kabila ng lahat ng yan, hindi kayo nagkahiwa-hiwalay?

JD
Nung 11 po ako, dun dumating ang MYRC. Ang pakilala sa Mama ko, social worker sila. Pag-aaralin daw kami. Pero Juvenile center pala, ginawa akong katulong, taga-ipon ng kaning baboy. Yung ibang kapatid ko, pinagkukuha ng ibang ampunan. May napunta sa Kapatiran, yung iba sa Asilo.

JL
Ba’t hindi kayo kinuha ng Mama mo?

JD
Wala po siyang trabaho noon. Kung babawiin niya kami, magugutom lang kami. Pero ako, nung isang beses na bumisita si Mama, pagkaalis niya, tumakas ako, hinabol ko siya.

JL
Janvier, hindi ko kaya ang pinagdaanan mo. Talo pa ang episode ng Magpakailanman. Paano nabuo uli ang pamilya mo? Paano kayo nakaahon sa hirap?

JD
Direk… sasabihin ko po sa inyo pero off the record.


Sa mga ikinuwento ni Janvier, eto lang pwede kong i-reveal: Nang magkapera sila, sa kagustuhang makapag-aral, gumamit siya ng fake diplomas (hindi siya nakapag-elementary at high school) para matanggap sa isang university, kung saan hindi lang siya basta nakapasok, naging basketball varsity player din siya. Habang nagkukuwento si Janvier, may isang tanong na hindi maalis-alis sa isip ko:

JL
Janvier… sa dami ng pinagdanan mo… wala bang nang-molestiya sa yo… nang-abuso?

(Matagal bago nakasagot si Janvier. Parang nag-iisip. Kahit ako naging uncomfortable, iniwasan ko ang tingin niya, nagkunwaring busy sa pagtatype sa laptop)

JD
Wala po.

mahirap pala ng pinagadaanan nya, sobra. tama ka rin direk na ibang klaseng paghuhubad ito, ang pagsagot sa mga tanong. sigurado mahirap din ibahagi ang ganitong mga detalye.

pero direk, with all due respect, anong kaibahan ng ganitong paghuhubad ng damdamin o kaluluwa, sa paghuhubad sa katawan? anong klaseng lipunan tayo kung di na tayo nakontento sa katawan, pati kaluluwa gusto natin angkinin? wala na ba tayong nirerespeto?

baklamancutedin said...

kung tutoo man ang interview at tunay na nangyari ito GRABE ang hirap na pinagdaanan ni Janvier. Shet nakakaiyak!!! Kung eto lang naman ay product ng malikot na pag iiisip ni Jun Lana shet din kasi ang galing mong mangiliti ng emosyon. Hahahaha

traumatic naman pala mga pinag daanan ni Janvier pero I'm sure nakatulong din yun mga pinagdaanan nya kaya ganyan sya katapang ngayon...

in this day and age JUN LANA, naniniwala ka bang uubra pa ang ganitong publicity slant? i mean, this is so 80's. this has been bled to death by Jay Manalo, Isko Moreno and some starlets na di ko na matandaan ang mga pangalan. nakatira sa kalye, nakatira sa ilalim ng tulay, huwag mo namang insultuhin kaming mga kabataan. kung umubra ang ganitong slant no'ng panahon mo, di na ngayon ito ubra sa maing mga produckto ng digital age.

mabuhay kayong lahat at ginising nyo ang araw ko :)iba ito.....

JUN LANA said...

Salamat mga ate kuya sa napaka-positive na feedback n’yo sa interview ko kay Janvier.
Sa totoo lang, ang plano ko talaga, mala-slumbook na Q&A lang. At ganun nagsimula ang interview. Tinanong ko kung paano siya na-discover?—habang naglalakad daw sa SM Baguio. Ano ang hobbies niya?—basketball daw at mahilig din siyang magbasa, huli niya raw nabasa Rich Man, Poor Man. Once and for all, natutulog ba talaga siyang nakahubad?—Pag sobrang init daw ng panahon.

Nung naging brutal ang mga tanong ko, hindi ko inaasahan na magkukuwento si Janvier tungkol sa mga pinagdaanan niya. Kahit ako nagulat. Parang scoop na pang-Startalk at The Buzz. Alam ko na pag nilabas ko ang interview, may ilang mag-iisip na publicity stunt lang ito.

May tatlong interviews ako na lalabas tungkol sa tatlong bida ng pelikula (Janvier, Jay, Sheree). Si Janvier ang una, at nai-post ko na. Lahat ito, ginagawa ko bilang bahagi ng promotion ng pelikula. Nagkataon na itong si Janvier, may isiniwalat tungkol sa pagkatao niya. Ganun lang yun.

Dun sa mga nanlalait kay Janvier at sa kwento niya, ipupublish ko lang ang comments nyo kung mag-iiwan kayo ng matinong identity. Hindi basta anonymous. Hello, anonymous na nga, nega pa. Ba't ko naman ilalabas sa sarili kong blog di ba? Mag-iwan kayo ng maayos na identity at irerespeto ko ang comments n’yo. Otherwise, magpatubo muna kayo ng bayag.

PS

Lester, salamat sa poster na ginawa mo. Ang sweet, grabe.

Hello,

Might be surprise upon receiving a comment all the way from WAR ZONE -Kabul Afghanistan. I like the way u interview - Candid. I guess I will just have to wait to see the movie since I'm a bit far. best of luck and God Bless..

jack said...

My unsolicited advice lang, don't be so sensitive if other people will think that this is a publicity stunt, and that is because of the timing. You have invested so much on this film and its a very good one, just stick with your plan. I think the photo scandal of Janvier is already a good material just stick to it, for the sake of the movie and Janvier na rin. Thanks and More power.....

panalo ka talaga direk! kahit kailan... regards kay JD.

mataray ka rin pala, jun! "magpatubo muna kayo ng bayag" LOL

buburahin ko na ang picture ni janvier na labas ang titi sa inbox ko.

mas masarap pala talagang tignan ang lalaki sa kabuuan nya, at hindi lang sa ka-butu-an nya.

Bi-manila said...

I was moved by the interview but i still feel skeptical ... how can u enrol at any college with just a fake/real elementary & highschool diploma... u also need a highskul report card which is a basic requirement in any college and its realy hard to fake... how can u even weave through 1st sem with no educational background to support ur current studies... if he realy did undergo those things... he shouldnt exagerate abwt his past for us to pity him... it just makes him sound like a liar .. not everyone is as gullible as the masses.... respect is hard to earn.

Anonymous said...

you have a point bi-manila, and I totally agree with you that I did not see the point in that either, but I think thats the part na wala ng details na ibinigay baka naman hindi na masyado nag kaintindiahan sa part na yun at nawiwindang na si jun lana sa mga naririnig nya, but the bottom line here is that I think janvier is asking for a chance, a chance to change his life, (sana nga lang for the better :)) I really hope that in our own little way we can all give janvier a chance....

geng de los reyes said...

hi kuya jun, nakakagulat lang ang kwento ni janvier... just wondering kung bakit hindi niya ito nagamit sa supposed to be breakdown scenes niya. kung ganyan ang pinagdaanan ko... aba't tatalbugan ko talaga si Nora,Lorna at Gina sa mga iyakan scenes at meaningful glances...

wow kung may talk show ka siguro jun ang taas ng ratings. may column ka ba sa diyaryo o magazine?

rAzAzO'o said...

inspiteof the way janvier candidly answered jl's queries, lalo siyang naging tao sa mundo ng kaplastikang kanyang pinasukan. kahit nga the face & body does not necessarily match his past, mas nagiging object of curiousity ang kanyang 'pagdating' bilang ang bagong titilian at tatanghaling isa sa mga pinakaningning na bituin in due time... masyado siyang oozing to resist!

wag na kaung aangal pa kasi sa totoo man yan o hindi o maniwala tayo. it's touch us a lot because we are a beings that had felings but I don't think so n walang nakagalaw diyan o nagalaw yan.. jejejeje

payak na katotohanan ng buhay, ang pagiging totoo sa sarili at kahit ano man syang magiging susi ng laya sa ano man usapin o problema na haharapin! isang papugay sa yo janvier! sa mundo na iyong ginagalawan na puno ng balatkayo ang panindigan mo ang katotohanan at yan ang magpapalaya sa yo sa lahat ng haharapin mo.

wow. that was moving.
di ko inakalang mag c-change ang view ko sa isang porn figure, just because of reading this blog. wow.

thanks for sharing.

Cephalgia said...

sir Lana, I'm asking your permission to let me copy this onto my page and translate this interview in English. Please? I await your reply.

JUN LANA said...

hi cephalgia, don't trouble youself, here's the english version which appears in my mirror blog (not open to the public):

JANVIER BARES ALL

I asked Ihman (Janvier’s manager) if I could interview his talent for the promo of Roxxxanne. That’s how it is with indie productions; you’re the writer-director-producer one day and reporter the next. With a less than zero budget for promotions, I had no choice but to do all the publicity work myself. I decided that my questions would be brutal and that in no way would I tolerate the coy boy type of answers. After all if your nude pictures have gone the rounds of the internet and people have seen your cock up close and personal, “no comment” replies would suck.

Is there anything left to reveal? To my surprise, there was, and so much more than I bargained for. With this interview, you will see Janvier stripped all over again. And if you ask me, this is as bare naked as Janvier can ever get.

JL
Janvier, I’m going to read to you one of the comments in my blog on a recent post I made about you. I didn’t allow this to be published but I kept it so I could show it to you.

Here’s the comment: “Janvier gets paid for sex. If I had the money, I would make him fuck me.” Are you alright with the fact that when people see you, the first thing that enters their minds is sex?

(Janvier became uneasy but he just smiled.)

JD
I would like to think that isn’t true.

JL
Well obviously, what you’re thinking is false. Truth is, there are some who see you as merely a walking dick. Have you accepted that?

JD
Taking my clothes off is just a job for me, Direk. There’s nothing I can do about what people think of me.

JL
So is this the part where you tell me that you’re doing all this to put food on your family’s table?

JD
I do it for my mama. Everything that I do, I do for her. It’s no joke what she went through just for us to survive.

JL
Like?

JD
When I was a kid, the crew of “Magandang Gabi Bayan” barged in on us and accused my mama of pimping us off.

JL
Who was she supposedly pimping off?

JD
Us, her children. But all she was trying to do was look for people who could sponsor our studies. There were eight of us and she didn’t have any money to send us to school. But people said she was pimping us off anyway.

JL
Who were these malicious-minded people who had the nerve to report your mother to Magandang Gabi Bayan?

JD
The people from the streets like us.

JL
Streets? What streets?

JD
In Ermita, Direk. Sometimes in U.N. Avenue… or Luneta. Wherever we could spend the night.

JL
Wait a minute, are you saying that you lived in the streets?

(I glanced at Janvier’s manager who was beside me. He didn’t say a word.)

JL
Are you serious? You didn’t have a house; a place to stay in? Not even relatives you could ask to live with?

JD
My mama is from Surigao so she has no family here. And my father is from Laguna.

JL
And you couldn’t live with your father?

JD
He was the reason why we ran away. He was always beating us up, especially mama. One time, he almost killed her.

(Janvier paused. I thought he was going to cry.)

JL
How old were you when you lived in the streets of Ermita?

JD
Around 4-5 years old.

JL
How long did you live in the streets?

JD
I was 11 when the MYRC took me away.

JL
What’s that?

JD
A juvenile center.

JL
You mean you lived in the streets for 6 years? All of you? How did you manage? What was it like?

JD
We found a squatters area in one of the sidestreets in U.N. That’s where we stayed eventually. My mama waited tables in Ermita while we kids all found different jobs. I sold newspapers.

JL
Were you ever charged with vagrancy?

JD
Lots of times, Direk. The worst was when we were looking for a place to sleep in Ermita Center. My mama left us for a while but when she came back the police were stuffing all of us kids inside a mobile. She threw stones at the precinct till they let us go.

(Janvier stopped; he looked like he was going to cry.)

JD
The police set us free but they took it all out on Mama. They beat her up and took off her clothes and then they put her in prison. She had a breakdown after that.

JL
What sort of breakdown?

JD
She would just start to cry until she’d be screaming and shouting. Then she would walk around Ermita with no clothes on.

JL
What would you do?

JD
We would follow her until she got tired. Then she’d fall asleep. Once she woke up, she’d be okay again.

JL
It’s good that despite everything your family stayed together?

JD
When I was 11, the MYRC arrived. They introduced themselves as social workers to my mama. They said they would send us to school. But they were a juvenile center. They made me their houseboy, they made me feed the pigs. My other brothers and sisters were put in different adoption centers. Some went to Kapatiran, the others in Asilo.

JL
Your mama didn’t fight to get all of you back?

JD
She couldn’t find work. If she got us back, we would all just go hungry. But one time after mama visited me, I escaped and ran after her.

JL
Janvier, you’ve gone through so many difficulties in your life, an episode in Magpakailanman would pale in comparison. So how were you able to bring your family together? How did you rise from poverty?

JD
Direk… I will tell you but it has to be off the record.

Of all that Janvier told me in confidence, this is all I am able to reveal: once they had enough money, he used fake diplomas so that he would be accepted by a university (he didn’t study elementary and high school) where he wasn’t just accepted but eventually became a basketball varsity player. While Janvier was telling me his stories, there was one question that I couldn’t get out of my head:

JL
Janvier… in all that you’ve been through… was there any one who tried to abuse you… someone who actually molested you?

(There was a long pause before Janvier could reply; like he was grappling with what to say. Even I became uncomfortable so I turned away and pretended to busy myself with typing on the laptop.)

JD
…No.

totoo man o hindi yung interview, natouch ako kahit pano.pinagdaanan ko kasi yung kwento but those experiences served as challenge and inspiration to grow and learn more on how to survive. now, hindi ko sinasabing napakataas ko but i consider myself as one of the good citizens and a good provider to my family. kung totoo man yung story ni janvier, take your time to fulfill your dreams, be patient, huwag mo intindihin yung mga maririnig mo, just be yourself. kung publicity naman yan, ok lang basta pag nkafirst base ka na be sure na totoo na lahat ng sasabihin mo, ganyan talaga sa showbiz. dapat ka gumawa ng story ng buhay mo, totoo man o hindi, basta makilala ka muna. then, iprove mo na may talent ka talaga para mabura kung ano man ang nagawa mong istorya na buhay mo kung ginawa mo lang for publicity. anyway, may talent ka naman siguro, basta improve mo pa at mahalin ang work mo para magtagal ka dyan. God bless and more power.

to jun, i enjoyed a lot sa interview mo kay janvier. nakakatuwa. yung mga sagot naman ni janvier ay very inspiring. sabi ko nga totoo man o hindi yung story, natouch ako kahit pano, kasi pinagdaana ko yon. sana makatulong yung interview mo kay janvier. More power to you kasi kung hindi sa inyo (positive man o hindi yung interview) nakatutulong yon sa mga newcomers sa showbiz. lalo na maganda ang takbo ng interview mo. keep up the good work. od bless.
