MANILA - Veteran actress Vilma Santos, who has been in the industry since she was nine, explained on Thursday the reason she turned down an offer to do a "tell-all" book in an episode of "Tonight with Boy Abunda."

Speaking on the late night talk show, the 62-year-old Santos teased: "Ino-offer sa akin na gawin libro ang buhay ko. Pero sabi ko hindi puwedeng 'tell-all.' Kasi may mga sekreto ako na hindi niyo pa puwedeng malaman."

Santos, the star of Star Cinema's newest offering "Everything About Her," also talked about the things she would willingly share on her book should she write one.

The "Star for All Seasons" said that she would begin her book, which she gave the tile of "Abstract," writing about how her parents raised her before segueing into a story on her first acting job.

"Alam ng lahat na nine pa lang ako nagtratrabaho na ako, na ang suweldo ko para sa una kong pelikula ay 100 pesos, at nagkakaroon ako ng stage show ay ang bayad sa akin ay trenta pesos. ...Dinaanan ko lahat iyon," she said.

Santos further said that she would then talk about the various milestones of her career --her first dramatic role, the first time she took on a more liberated film, and her experience working with celebrated directors.

On Angel and Luis

Meanwhile, Santos was also asked about her thoughts on a possible marriage between co-star Angel Locsin and her son, "Pilipinas Got Talent" host Luis Manzano.

"Inyo na iyon. Kayo na magdesisyon, naka-suporta lang ako," she said.

Manzano has revealed on Wednesday that her relationship with Locsin has currently hit a snag. He, however, refused to go into details about his misunderstanding with Locsin.
