Paulo Avelino Irks EnPress

Paulo Avelino, the crooner?

Paulo Avelino, the crooner?

Hunky actor Paulo Avelino is now in hot waters after members of the Entertainment Press Club got offended with the “joke” he blurted out while presenting an award for the 2013 Golden Screen Award.

The actor was asked by Press Club officials to present the award for “Outstanding Single Performance by an Actor and Actress”.  The actor earlier accepted his award for “Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Program” sharing the honor with Niel Ryan Sese.

Paulo did not readily accept the responsibility telling Press Members to talk to his manager Leo Dominguez and to Star Magic, his handler.  Dominguez said yes and the actor went on stage to present the award.

The actor then dropped the bomb before presenting by saying “mahirap magtrabaho kung napipilitan ka lang.”

“It’s hard to work when you’re forced.”

Enpress members and several other media reporters were shock to hear the actor’s acidic comment.

Dominguez was quick to issue an apology for his ward’s comment.  He said the actor meant it as a jest and that Avelino is prone to making corny jokes.

Jun Nardo, Enpress President, is still fuming mad even after the apology.

““Pagmimitingan pa namin ‘yan. Madaming members ang na-offend eh. Napanood pa ng ibang writers, kaya buwisit din sila.

“Hindi naman Supporting Actor sa Comedy award niya para sabihin ‘yun jokingly. How ungrateful!!”

“We’ll still talk about that.  A lot of our members got offended.  Some writers saw what happened so they’re really upset.”

“He didn’t win an Award for Supporting Actor in a Comedy Role to say that as a joke.  How ungrateful.”

Could it be the Avelino’s premature successes have already bloated his ego? Did he want the committee to pay him for his trouble?

Paulo, don’t you think it’s too early to start showing your REAL color?

Paulo Avelino earn viewers ire for “raping” Julia Montes

Julia Montes and Paulo Avelino playing Katerina and Nathan

ABS-CBN’s top-rating primetime series “Walang Hanggan” on Wednesday night warned millions of its viewers of a Strong Parental Guidance (SPG) rating as Katerina (Montes) was shown being forced to have sex by her husband Nathan (Avelino).

After years of marriage without sexual intimacy, the “psychotic” Nathan was shown attempting to rape Katerina as she was held hostage by her brother Tomas (Joem Bascon) and Johanna (Melissa Ricks).

Katerina, who is in love with Daniel (Coco Martin), barely managed to escape after a struggle with Nathan, but only after she was forced to have sex by her husband.

The scene, which showed Katerina being punched by Nathan repeatedly, proved to be controversial, as viewers of the show posted at rapid pace their reactions on micro-blogging site Twitter.

Netizens especially expressed their anger towards Nathan, who is played by Avelino. Having recently been cited as Best Actor by the Gawad Urian, Avelino has earned raves for his portrayal of the notorious character in “Walang Hanggan.”

Even as the show took on the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board’s (MTRCB) SPG rating as a caution to viewers about the rape scene, the Tuesday episode of “Walang Hanggan” was still the No. 1 most watched show in the country nationwide.
