Maine Mendoza glad she’s in ‘My Bebe Love’
The four main stars of the 2015 Metro Manila Film Festival entry My Bebe Love namely, Vic Sotto, Ai Ai delas Alas, Maine Mendoza and Alden Richards are happy with their maiden screen collaboration.
“This is my first silver screen project and considering that I’m with Tito Vic, Ms. Ai Ai and Alden who, compared to me are way ahead in the ‘biz, I didn’t feel that I was a greenhorn whatsoever. They made me feel at ease, especially Tito Vic who plays the role of my dad in the story. He helped me in our scenes together, to understand my character better.
“The same goes to both Ms. Ai Ai and Alden. They were giving actors who guided me in doing a number of key scenes. Yes, I learned a lot from them. I’m simply grateful for their support,” avers Maine.
Vic says, “Maine is a natural actress. She has great promise. I’m sure the public will like her here. Credit goes to Direk Jose Javier Reyes for giving the AlDub tandem a fresh material. It’s definitely a different take from what the viewers see in Eat Bulaga’s daily Kalye-serye.”
“Of course, to be honest, at first, I was very nervous because this project is an acid test for Maine and I,” states Alden. “But given that we were working with the best people like Bosing Vic, Ate Ai and Direk Joey, it put my fears to rest. I’m very happy with our end product. It’s challenging that we play different characters here outside the Kalye-serye umbrella. I believe that Maine and I were able to deliver in this feel-good vehicle!”
For Ai Ai, more than its commercial viability, the movie is an attestation of Vic’s genuine friendship with her.
“Bosing never abandoned me!” she muses. “Even during those low periods in my career when I was still at the rival studio, he always communicated with me. I felt his sincerity. That’s why I got so touched when he officially offered me to be part of My Bebe Love. I will always be thankful for his unfaltering belief in my talent and capacity!”
According to the majority, My Bebe Love will be the undisputed top-grosser in the forthcoming MMFF.
“Well, that’s nice to hear. It’s a big boost to our morale. I’m confident that film buffs will enjoy watching because this is the true romantic-comedy offering. It’s just perfect for the whole family this Christmastime,” ends Vic.
Walang Forever leads Jennylyn Mercado and Jericho Rosales have only good words for each other.
“Echo is very friendly,” avers Jen. “Apart from that, he takes good care of everybody on the set. He always orders food for the group to partake, the reason why most of us gained some weight during the filming. Ha-ha-ha! But honestly, I really had a wonderful time working with a good and down-to-earth actor like him.”
“A beautiful person is how I would describe Jennylyn. She is not only physically alluring but sensible as well. I discovered this when we started talking about serious matters on (sic) the course of our shooting. Jen is so mature. Perhaps, we hit it off well because we have one common denominator: we’re both products of reality shows. I won in Mr. Pogi while she was the first Ultimate Female Survivor in StarStruck!” says Jericho.
In the movie, the handsome Kapamilya hunk reveals they have intimate scenes
“Yes and Jen took care of me during the take. Ha-ha-ha! She was the one who was asking me if I’m okay after we shot it. It was a passionate scene and one of the highlights in the movie so people should watch out for it.”
“Jericho is a true gentleman. He was very careful in handling our kissing and love scene, the mark of a true PRO,” Jen states.
