Does Imee Marcos want a movie based on her life story? “Buhay pa ako eh!”

  • The media asked about Imee Marcos if she’s interested in having a movie inspired by her life story.
  • She addressed the issue about Nora Aunor not honored as a National Artist.

Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos recently met up with the entertainment media regarding her plans for the Philippine entertainment industry.

She was asked if there was a chance that a movie about her life will be produced, which actor does she want to be her leading man.

“Ms. Imee, kung isasapelikula ang life story mo, sino sa mga artista natin ang gusto mong gumanap, at sino ang gusto mong maging leading man?”

She smiled and answered that it was a difficult question. “Naku, ang hirap naman isipin niyan. Talaga namang napakahirap isipin.”

The governor added that she’s still not interested in having a movie based about her life as she’s still alive. She also joked about her leading men being her three sons.

“Huwag muna, hindi pa ako patay, eh! (laughs) Pero teka, sino nga ba sa mga artista ang kamukha ko? Ha, ha, ha! Sa leading man, siguro ‘yung tatlo kong anak.”

Marcos also admitted that as a close friend of actress Nora Aunor, she’s dismayed that the superstar still isn’t bestowed with the National Artist award. She added that she’s willing to lobby behind Nora to Malacañan,  

“Siyempre may personal favorite ako, dahil ang Himala sa Ilocos ng ECP. Na siya mismo ang naging producer. Kaya hindi nila ako tinatanong dahil medyo biased ako diyan.”

Marcos was the director general of Experimental Cinema of the Philippines (ECP) which produced classic Filipino movies such as ‘Himala, ‘Oro, Plata, Mata, ‘Soltero‘ and ‘Misteryo sa Tuwa‘.


Adding to that, the Marcos family was also the founder of Manila International Film Festival, which was attended by Hollywood actress Brooke Shields.
