"Hindi siya like basketball na if you put in the hard work, or like, if you're tall, you can be successful," the actor stated.

Coming from someone who has really great visuals and an amazing physique, the 29-year-old actor strongly thinks that showbiz is not all about pretty looks, but more about how good of a reception you have with your audience.

"In showbiz kasi, even if you're super gwapo, or super ganda, it still depends on the people watching you—if they like you," he explained. "Then, the network naman 'yung kukuha sa'yo if they see na, 'Uy, gusto siya ng mga tao.'"

Now, David has proven that people do like him for his craft and his current stance in the industry. But he acknowledges the hard truth that, "The competition is stiff." His words give us a glimpse of how he has been trying to be on top of his game, no matter what.
