MANILA, Philippines - Resigned Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez is open to the idea of her controversial life being turned into a film.

In an interview with ANC's “Headstart” anchored by Karen Davila on Wednesday, Gutierrez was at a loss when asked to pick an actress who will portray her, but she responded that her favorite star is Susan Roces.

"You know, when we were still young, my sisters and I would fight kasi siya Amalia Fuentes, ako Susan Roces," Gutierrez said.

Davila then teased Gutierrez that she has similarities with Roces.

"You know there is that similarity. When you were angry, I was in front of Susan Roces at the height of her anger. That was a major moment for me, but you have similarities when you're angry," Davila said.

Gutierrez on Friday resigned from her post as the Ombudsman just 10 days before her impeachment trial begins at the Senate.

She was charged with betraying the public trust.
