Celebrities often portray different onscreen personas that viewers can't help but be curious about what they're really like in real life. And with more and more stars opening their own YouTube channels, fans get a glimpse of their idols' lives outside of the TV show or movie they star in.

Case in point: Actor Marco Gumabao debunks people's assumptions about him in a new video on his YouTube channel, one of which pertains to what he was like as a student back in high school. ICYDK, Marco attended Ateneo de Manila High School, an educational institution exclusively for boys.

One of the assumptions about Marco was that he was pilyo and pasaway as a high school student. Marco's simple response? Yes, it is apparently true. Marco further explains that it's because he was the type of student who always wanted to make his classmates laugh with his antics and give off GV to make the classroom atmosphere lighter. "Ako yung malakas humirit sa school," Marco admits. And according to him, it's something teachers aren't exactly the happiest about.

To add to that, Marco shared a funny story about him in high school. Apparently, because of his classroom persona, Marco's class moderator back then tried to get him transferred to another section. Because he has gotten attached to his classmates and doesn't want to transfer to a new class, Marco started a counter-petition to keep him in his section and asked his classmates to sign it. Thankfully, all his classmates signed the petition and he got to stay! "Medyo magulo talaga ako noong high school," Marco concludes. TBH, every class probably has a Marco among them.
