MANILA, Philippines – Kapamilya actor Paulo Avelino has denied accusations that he has become swell-headed after his break in the phenomenal series “Walang Hanggan.”

In an interview with “The Buzz” on Sunday, Avelino said he does not know where such rumors are coming from.

“Kung during the times na parang nagmamadali tapos may magpapa-picture, ako naman I try my best to stay with the people and have pictures. Kasi minsan lang naman iyan eh. But minsan talaga na kailangan na puntahang work so minsan nagmamadali talaga,” the actor added.

Avelino said he always tries his best to keep himself grounded despite the opportunities coming his way.

The actor also defended why he has become very particular on which roles to accept after “Walang Hanggan.”

“As an actor, parang there are no small or big roles for them eh. Sa nangyayari po ngayon, medyo magulo rin po 'yung schedule, medyo puno rin po so I had to say no to some projects na gusto ko rin gawin. It’s a scheduling matter. Kumbaga hindi na po talaga kayang gawin,” he said.

Avelino said he does not even have much to choose from yet.

“As of now, konti pa lang ang nao-offer so I don’t really get to choose that much. I just want something different all the time,” he said.

Avelino said he still has a lot to learn to be tagged as one of the best actors of this generation.

“Sa akin, parang hindi naman po [ako threat sa iba]. Tulad ng sinabi ko nga dati, marami pa akong kakaining bigas para pumunta sa stardom at sa level ng husay nila sa pag-arte,” he said.
