Piolo Pascual has this first reaction when he was first called Papa Pi

A-list actor Piolo Pascual shared who gave him the nickname Papa Pi, initially admitting he didn’t like it.

With his talent and charm, Piolo paved his way to stardom. It was through supporting roles that he eventually proved he could handle leading roles in a variety of genres, whether on the small or big screen.

Over the years he’s been nicknamed Papa Pi. He even did a sitcom called My Papa Pi starring Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach. In an interview on Korina Interviews, veteran journalist Korina Sanchez asked the A-list actor how his nickname got his start in showbiz.

Piolo Pascual shared that it was comedy concert queen Ai-Ai delas Alas who first called him that. The actor said it was during the time he was a guest on Kapamilya’s defunct midday show Sang Linggo Na Po Sila.

He admitted that at first he didn’t like this nickname. “To me, that’s parang mockery,” said the actor. When asked why he didn’t like it, Piolo said he was young at the time and felt it was inappropriate for his age.

Korina said, “Papa ng bayan” and that it was a compliment. Piolo has since accepted that the moniker was a compliment.

In part of the interview, Korina asked her guest if there was ever a time when, with all the success he’s achieved, he had an “attitude.” Piolo admitted it’s inevitable but his family keeps him grounded.

Every time he comes home he doesn’t feel like a celebrity because his family treated him the same way they treated him before he became famous. “Pwede par rin nila akong utusan,” the actor shared, adding that his family doesn’t feed his ego.
