For the first time, Billy Crawford felt how it is to be in a premiere night as one of the cast members. The singer-actor attended the premiere night of Momzillas on Tuesday, September 17.
The singer-actor is used to attending premiere nights but only as a guest of fellow celebrities.
In an interview after the premiere, Billy admitted, “Nakakaniyerbyos pala.
“Lagi akong bumibisita sa mga premiere night ng mga kaibigan pero sobrang sarap ng pakiramdam.
“Sana it’s not the last.”
Since Momzillas received positive feedback from viewers during the premiere, does Billy already consider himself as a comedian?
“Dyusko! Huwag muna, support-support lang,” the It’s Showtime host said with a laugh.
Billy gave credit to the lead actresses of the movie, Maricel Soriano and Eugene Domingo, who both did very well as comediennes in the movie.
“Napakasaya. Sobrang talagang tagahanga ako nina Ms. Eugene Domingo at Ms. Maricel Soriano.
“Just to see both of them, ibang klase. Ibang klase talaga,” said Billy.
Joining Billy at the premiere night were, of course, the Momzillas in the movie, Maricel and Eugene.
Other cast members who were present at the premiere night were Andi Eigenmann, Candy Pangilinan, Mel Martinez, and Joey Paras.
Momzillas director Wenn Deramas joined cast members on stage prior to the screening of the movie.
Vice Ganda, Billy’s co-host in It’s Showtime, also showed his support by attending the red-carpet premiere.
"I FOUND MY MATCH." During the Momzillas press conference, Maricel Soriano gave her observation about Billy, who plays her son in the movie.
"Walang kapaguran ito [sa pagkuwento]. Sabi ko sa kanya, ganyan ka ba talaga sa personal? Nagugulat talaga ako, hindi siya napapagod mag-kuwento."
The Diamond Star then turned to Billy and asked him: "Bakit nga ba ganun? Saan ka ba pinaglihi?"
Billy quipped, "Kaya ngayon, hindi ako magku-kuwento. Tahimik lang ako."
Maricel sighed and said, "Mabuti naman, anak. Kasi umpisahan mo sa kotse...ang dami!
"Buti pa si Andi, nakakapag nap sa set namin kasi makikita mo pagod ang bata galing sa taping.
"Ang sipag-sipag ng bata na ito [referring to Andi]. Yun ang kaibahan ng dalawa."
Billy reacted immediately as he said, "So ako madaldal lang?!"
Maricel clarified, "Hindi ang sinabi ko hindi ka napapagod. Daldal ka pa rin ng daldal. Kinukwento ko lang ang totoo."
During the presscon, Billy conceded that he is indeed talkative and that Maricel was just as fond as talking as him. "I found my match," said Billy with a smile.
