Matagal nang usap-usapan ang posibleng pagsali ng panganay na anak ni Ruffa Gutierrez na si Lorin sa mga beauty pageants. She got the looks and the brains, kaya naman ay may mga kumalat na spekulasyon na hindi imposibleng hindi tahakin ng dalaga ang yapak ng kanyang beauty queen mom.
Sa isang press conference na inilungsad ng Viva para sa pag welcome nila kay Lorin bilang bagong talent nito ay hindi maiwasang itanong sa dalaga kung may plano nga ba itong sumali sa mga beauty pageants. Agad naman itong sinagot ni Lorin na wala pa itong plano sa ngayon ngunit maaari umanong magbago ang kanyang isip pagdating ng panahon.
Ayon kay Lorin, “I don’t know what will happen to me. As of now, I don’t really have plans of joining a beauty contest and I haven’t thought much about it. But honestly in the future, my mind can change in a year. My mind can change in three years, we’ll never really know. “
Dagdag pa nito, “I guess I’ll just have to see it where my mind takes me and where my future takes me in terms of beauty pageants. Or what I decide to pursue in the future.”
Mas gusto umano nitong i-pursue muna ang kanyang hilig sa acting bago pa magdesisyon sa pagsali sa pageants.
“I think I’ve kind of decided after reflecting with myself that I also want to pursue my passion which is acting, while doing my studies at the same time. As long as I’m disciplined, as long as I make the time, as long as I work hard, I can balance everything.”
“Even in high school, when I was focused in my studies, I already took part in plays, had drama classes, because I always had the passion for acting. It was genuinely something I enjoyed and I did in my free time.”
