MANILA -- Actress Judy Ann Santos gamely read and reacted to people's assumptions about her.

In a video released by ABS-CBN Entertainment on Wednesday, Santos shattered assumptions that she "cannot go out of house without make-up" and that she's a vegetarian.

"Hindi po ako actually nagme-make-up kapag wala akong trabaho kasi hindi po ako marunong mag-make-up," Santos said.

"Nung dalaga, six months naging vegetarian ako tapos 'di ko siya napanindigan kasi mahirap siya. Na-miss ko 'yung chicken," she also said.

She also clarified the notion that she's more comfortable doing drama compared to comedy or action.

"Actually pare-pareho lang. Mas happy lang ako na nakakagawa ako ng roles na medyo comedy mas ako kasi 'yon. 'Yung drama 'yon kasi ang sinimulan ko kaya mas mukhang kumportable ako sa kanya. Ang action depende sa na-save kong energy. Puwede akong mag-action," she said.

The actress also denied that she's sweet to all the people she work with in show business.

"Malambing ako sa mga tatay-tatayan ko gaya kina Tito Pip (Tirso Cruz III) at Tito Joel (Torre), ganyan. Pero 'yung kapag mga ka-edad ko, hindi ko nilalambing kasi baka sabihin nilalandi ko sila. ... Genuine lang ako sa affection ko sa kanila. I try to build a good relationshp with my co-stars. I respect everyone. I make everybody feel comfortable sa trabaho namin," she explained.

The actress confirmed that she likes children and loves to travel with her husband Ryan Agoncillo.

"Of course, kasi kapag kaming dalawa lang 'yung nagta-travel, we get to talk, we get to spend time na kaming dalawa lang. I think it's very, very important sa mag-asawa na mag-travel na kayong dalawa lang kasi you get to reconnect," says Santos, who also said she's not necessarily stricter than Ryan when it comes to their children.

"Hindi naman. Mayroon lang kaming division of roles when it comes to disciplining the children," she said.

When it comes to being the "Queen of Philippine Soap Opera," Santos said: "Sila naman po ang nagbansag sa akin niyan. I'm grateful, may pressure pero I think at some point kapag matanda na ako ay mayroon ng mas batang makakagamit ng Queen of Philippine Soap Opera."

She also confirmed that she loves to cook for her friends.

"Happiness ko siya. Saka gusto ko. It makes me happy na nakakapagpangiti ako ng tao kapag nakakain nila 'yung pagkaing ginagawa ko. There's a satisfaction inside my heart that I just can't explain," Santos said.

On the assumption that she "loves to collect branded bags and shoes," Santos replied: "Ah hindi. First branded bag ko na binili ko was Chanel and I was married already with two kids kasi parang hindi talaga kaya ng puso ko 'yung bumili ng bag na isang bagsakan"

Currently, Santos is busy with her newest series "Starla" which airs Monday to Friday after "FPJ's Ang Probinsyano."
