Kris Aquino recently revealed that she will play the mistress of Richard Yap's character in The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin.
The TV host-actress will appear in two Metro Manila Film Festival entries this year: the horror film Feng Shui 2 and the comedy film Praybeyt Benjamin 2.
Kris will have a role in the comedy movie starring Vice Ganda, Richard Yap, Alex Gonzaga, and her son Bimby Aquno-Yap.
She disclosed her role when Richard appeared as a guest on Aquino & Abunda Tonight, which Kris co-hosts with Boy Abunda.
"I'm your wife there!" she told Richard who is cast as a general in the film.
Kris said with a laugh: "I'm the mom of Bimb. We had an affair. Inakit ko siya [Richard]. Inakit ko yung heneral! Nagtagumpay ako and I'm bad. Ang saya!"
During the December 7 press conference of Praybeyt Benjamin, Richard was asked how it was like to shoot scenes with Kris.
"Wala pa naman kaming scenes together so hinihintay ko pa lang."
Is he ready to be seduced by Kris Aquino?
"Ready naman," he said with a smile.
How was it like working with Bimby Aquino-Yap and Rhed Bustamante?
"They're both very nice kids and masunurin naman sila. Si Rhed parang bihasang-bihasang artista na.
Did Richard Yap have sweet moments with Vice Ganda in this MMFF 2014 entry?
"Abangan n'yo na lang. Meron kaming very romantic moment."
In a separate interview, Vice Ganda said about his co-star: "May harutang magaganap sa amin ni Richard Yap."
KRIS AQUINO ON THE SET. Kris is vocal in saying that she is a stage mother. Were there times when Kris interfered on the set?
Vice Ganda recalled: "Kahapon nandun siya, behave lang naman siya sa shooting pero noong una, nangingialam talaga siya.
"Noong unang shooting namin, mahirap yung pinagawa kay Bimby na kahit ako naawa sa bagets.
"Kasi pinag-Chinese siya. Lahat ng linya niya puro Chinese at pati yung bata hindi rin handa.
"Merong Chinese instructor dun na nagbibigay ng mga linya niya in Chinese. Tapos si Kris papalit siya papalit. [Sinasabi niya] 'Huwag 'yan, yung mas maikli pa.' Babaguhin ng instructor then sasabihin niya, 'Yung mas simple pa.'
"Naloloka yung Chinese instructor then sabi ni Kris, 'Huwag 'yan, Tagalog na lang.'
"E, di nag-Tagalog na lang si Bimby."
Did Kris have special instructions on how to take care of her son while shooting for this movie?
"Wala naman siyang bilin kasi kahit hindi siya mag-bilin, sigurado namang aalagaan siya ng Star Cinema at Viva Films...ni Direk Wenn saka ako, lalo ako kasi parang anak ko na rin yun."
Vice Ganda then revealed that Kris actually likes it when Bimby is treated like any other kid.
"Tuwang-tuwa siya pag napaglalaruan si Bimby. Pag tinatrato siyang pangkaraniwan lang o hindi tinatratong anak ni Kris Aquino o pamangkin ng Pangulo [referring to President Noynoy Aquino] o apo ng bayani [referring to Ninoy Aquino].
"Dito sa pelikula, napaglaruan talaga namin si Bimby."
