Kris Aquino reveals in a taped interview on ABS-CBN showbiz program The Buzz that she once walked out of the set of a project that she was working on with Coco Martin.
“Nagkatrabaho kami na hindi pa siya Coco Martin,” the popular movie actress and TV host says of the award-winning actor.
“Papunta pa lang siya sa level na ’to. E no’ng time na ’yon, super-intense na siya. Wala siyang pakundangan na binabalibag niya ’ko.”
Kris is apparently referring to a time when she and Coco were doing a scene for Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo, an ABS-CBN teleserye that ran from January 18, 2010 to July 9, 2010, and also starred Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson.
“Nag-walk out nga ako,” Kris says of her reaction when Coco got too physical. Then she laughs, adding, “Naalala ko ’yon!”
The Kapamilya star—who hosts the daily morning show KrisTV and co-anchors the daily evening program Aquino & Abunda Tonight, as well as The Buzz—turns nostalgic because, after four years, she is working anew with the “super-intense” actor.
This time, Kris and Coco are co-starring in a movie, Feng Shui 2, the sequel to the 2004 top-grossing horror flick. Both movies are directed by Chito Roño.
“Sabi ko, ‘Diyos ko, ano na naman ang pagdadaanan naming dalawa?’” she shrieks, recalling the first time they worked together.
“May isang time na hindi kami nag-usap ng ilang linggo,” she recounts. “Dalawang beses kaming nagkapikunan until naging mag-friends kami.”
Kris makes it clear, though, that she is excited to be reunited with Coco in a big-screen production.
Feng Shui 2 is one of the eight entries to this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF), the annual exhibition of all-Filipino movies that traditionally opens on December 25, Christmas Day.
“Ako, na-e-excite ako because he was so excited to do this,” she points out.
In a previous interview, Kris said that it was actually Coco’s idea to do a sequel of Feng Shui.

In The Buzz interview, Kris shares her thoughts on the original Feng Shui movie.
“Feng Shui 1, I have to say, it opened so many doors,” she says. “It was such a risk at that time…
“Parang no’ng iniisip ko nga, feeling ko ang suwerte ko kasi no’ng ’90s, nagkaroon ako ng Box-office Queen Award. ’Tapos no’ng 2000s, nagkaro’n, then 2010s onwards, meron na naman.
“So in all fairness, tatlong dekada ’yon. Kaya sabi ko, ‘Ay, bongga na ’to!’”
The mother of two boys, Josh and Bimby, likens the experience with having a child who’s an honor student.
“Parang baby mo na nag-valedictorian no’ng elementary,” she beams. “Ngayon, titignan mo kung ‘Oh, my God! Magsu-summa cum laude kaya?’ Gano’ng feeling. Gano’n ang excitement.”
