Andi Eigenmann and Bret Jackson have no qualms about working with each other in Viva Films’ upcoming movie, Your Place or Mine?
The two were reportedly dating for two months when Andi decided that they’re better off as friends.
But despite what happened, Andi and Bret are all set to start filming their movie next week.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), the former Pinoy Big Brother Teen Clash housemate even joked about what he’s looking forward to the most when it comes to working with Andi.
“Hmm… The truth? Kissing scenes agad? Joke lang!
“I’m looking forward to just learning from Andi kasi ang galing niya, grabe!
“I’ve seen [her movies]. I just wanna learn from her and [hopefully she’ll] teach me how to do things, I guess,” Bret cheerfully stated.
Andi, for her part, humbly said that she’s not in the position to teach Bret, but she’d rather be there to help him in whatever she way she can.
At the same time, she’s equally thrilled to work with him given his easy-going personality.
“Siguro kay Bret hindi ko pa naman kasi alam kung paano siya magtrabaho since this will be his first [lead movie].
“Ang ine-expect ko sa kanya, alam ko magiging malaking contribution siya sa pagiging light ng set namin kasi comedian ‘yan, e.
“He's very funny. Magaan siyang kasama,” said Andi.
Since they will be working closely with each other, PEP asked Andi if there’s any possibility for her to develop romantic feelings for Bret.
As it is, Bret has been vocal about wanting to win her over if given a chance.

“Hindi ko po alam.
“Pero kasi I’ve done quite a lot of movies na ang tao umaasa rin na makakatuluyan ko kung sino makakatrabaho ko.
In the meantime, Bret is thankful to Viva Films’ big boss Vic Del Rosario for entrusting him with his first lead role in a movie.
Bret previously starred as one of the support characters in the movie Talk Back and You're Dead, topbilled by James Reid and Nadine Lustre.
“I was one of the members of Lucky 13. I guess, nakita ni Boss Vic na may potential.
“I feel really good right now na Boss Vic saw something good in me tapos with Andi pa. Ang galing!” he exclaimed.
Based from a Wattpad novel, Your Place or Mine tells the story of two strangers, Haley and Russel, who thought they’d never see each other again after a one-night stand back in college.
But their paths will cross once again when Haley’s mom forces her to get into an arranged marriage just to salvage their family business.
Bret further described his role as Russel, “He’s a good person. He's a true believer in love. He's the popular guy in school, the one everyone wants to be with.”
Andi, on the other hand, clued us in about her role as Haley and the exciting twists in the story.
“Si Haley ay mayaman ang pamilya pero nagkaproblemo sa negosyo simula nung namatay daddy niya.
“Siya yung nangako na she will be the one to make up and pay for it and make sure na mababawi nila yun.”
Asked how daring will she go for this film, Andi replied, “Sexy somehow [yung theme] pero but not like A Secret Affair na talagang I really went daring because this movie is still for teens.”
Directed by Joel Lamangan and based on a Wattpad story (written by user Turning_Japanese), Your Place or Mine? is expected to be shown early next year.
