24 Nov – John Lloyd Cruz recently opened up about his decision to take a showbiz hiatus back in 2017, saying that he needed to take a breather from everything.

As reported on Push, the actor, who spoke about the hiatus on Boy Abunda's online show, "The Best Talk", stated that he needed to stop and meditate, to get some distance before returning after working back to back for many years.

Asked if he was tired of the life of an actor, he responded, "At one point you realise that life is too short, somehow you realise that you need to give value and attention to things that you can no longer deny..."

Cruz stated that it was something that he needed to do, or he would have regretted it in the long run.

"As a creator, you always want to be able to give something worth people's time. And if you are [exhausted] it will be difficult for you to deliver," he added.

He also admitted that he is now happy being a father to Elias Modesto - his son with former partner Ellen Adarna.

"I don't think anything is happier than to have a small child, who is now two years old. Nothing is as fun. He is my saviour," he said.
