Maria Rosa Vilma Tuazon Santos-Recto (born Maria Rosa Vilma Tuazon Santos November 3, 1953 in Bamban, Tarlac), commonly known as Vilma Santos-Recto or Ate Vi is a Filipino actress and box office queen for almost four decades. One of the original Philippine movie queens, she rose up to become the versatile actress that has been given the fitting title of “Star for All Seasons” because of her capacity to adapt to the changing mores and values of the Filipino woman, giving a face to their plight and struggles, albeit in success both critically and box-office wise in some of Philippine cinema’s classics such as Trudis Liit (1963), Lipad, Darna, Lipad (1973), Burlesk Queen (1977), Relasyon (1982), Sister Stella L. (1984), Alyas Baby Tsina (1984), Pahiram ng Isang Umaga (1989), Dahil Mahal Kita: The Dolzura Cortez Story (1993), Anak (2000) and Dekada ’70 (2002). She is currently the governor of Batangas, Philippines (2012)(Wikipedia).

Higit Ngayon Ang Reponsibilites ni Vi


Ngayong masasabing kay Vi lahat nakatutok ang mga mata ng mga taong nagbabasa sa local showbiz world. At marahil gayon din ang mga nasa labas nito...ang kanyang hindi mabilang na fans at ang mga movie public. Pagka't bukod sa pagiging isang aktress, isa na ring movie producer si Vi. Nakikiramdam ang mga naturan kung mahusay niyang magampanan ang dalawang papel na ito ngayon. Bilang aktres, ang paglabas ni Vi sa Mga Rosas Sa Putikan, na isang movie production ng kanyang kompanya ay isa ring puntos ng interes para sa mga naturan. Pagka't dito'y maiiba sa dating uring role ang ginagampanan ni Vi. Magsisilbing tunay na hamon sa career niya. Dito kasi'y gagawa si Vi ng mga eksenang hindi niya ginagawa-gawa sa pelikula. Sa Mga Rosas mababatid kong maiibigan ng movie public at ng mga fans niya in particular ang gagawin niya o hindi. Kung ipagpapatuloy niya ito o hindi, kaya ang mahalagang katanungang malikha tungkol dito ay "tanggapin kaya ang pagbabago" (na marami ring nagsasabing pagpapaunlad sa kanyang career na panahon na niyang gawin( ng kanyang image?" Ang isa pang interesadong malaman ng publiko'y ang tungkol sa unang movie production niya, ang Mga Rosas Sa Putikan nga.


Hindi kaila kasi sa mga ito na maraming pumapasok sa movie making business na sa unang produksiyon pa lang ay bagsak na agad. Hindi kasi kumuwela ito. Bagama't nakakahigit mang malaki ang nagsasabing ki-click ang Mga Rosas, kahit paano'y naroon pa rin ang katanungang, "Mag-click kaya ang first movie productions nina Vi!" Ngunit ang katanungang ganito'y pangkaraniwan sa showbiz. People in and out of the showbiz world will always wonder if a movie will be a hit or not in the box office. Kaya't higit ngayong marahil ang responsibilities ni Vi hindi lang sa kanyang sarili kungdi sa kanya ring fans, the movie public, sa mga mahal niya sa buhay, sa mga kaibigan, at sa local showbiz industry. Wala nang hangarin si Vi sa pagiging aktres n'ya. She has more than proven herself in this. Ngunit, masasabing mayroon din naman. Pagka't sa pagpasok niya sa movie productions, hindi niya dapat payagang mabawasan ang ningning ng kanyang nakakasilaw na katayuan bilang isang artista. She owes this much to her countless followers. At bilang aktres ay nararapat niya ring ibuhos ang kanyang lahat sa unang produksiyon niya kung saan siya rin ang pangunahing bituin. - Cleo Cruz, Darna, No. 304, 30 Aug 1974


Cleo Cruz, Vilma Santos' publicist in the early part of her movie career, Vi normally calls her, "Mommy" or Mommy Cleo. Now retired from entertainment journalism, Cleo Cruz is reportedly now living in the United States. She referred Vi's followers in many of her columns and articles as "Luvs." - RV
