Kris Aquino thanked Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo for generating interest in Pampanga and Tarlac.
The TV host-actress was referring to the fact that the lead stars of Crazy Beautiful You were able to help a community of Aetas and generated interest in these provinces of Central Luzon.
Kris narrated how DJ (Daniel's nickname) and Kathryn spearheaded an outreach program for the Aetas in Tarlac, the main location of their movie Crazy Beautiful You.
She recalled, "Your mom [referring to Daniel] kept telling me, where you were shooting, maraming katutubo.
"Nalaman n'yo kung gaano kahirap ang buhay at kusa...It came from DJ, 'Ma, bili ka naman ng school supplies, gusto ko mamigay. Ma, tawag ka naman sa ine-endorse mong softdrink para yung pailaw nila, gawin dito.'
"Si Kath, nakita ko rin ang pagse-share na ginawa mo that your mom was posting."
Kris then pointed out, "They did not just shoot a movie, they helped change a community."
In response, Daniel narrated, "May istorya nga...nagkukuwento ang mga staff...Nung last day namin, namigay kami ng mga laruan at may binigay kami na stick na parang ilaw."
Kathryn, who was seated beside Daniel, described the toy as a sword.
Daniel continued, "Noong gabi raw, ang dami raw nilang nakita na nagtatakbuhan na [may hawak] na ilaw.
"Kasi dun sa gabi, wala na. Blackout talaga. Wala silang kuryente.
"Parang ang saya-saya sila. Ang ganda lang tingnan."
Kris kept on praising the Kathniel tandem by saying, "Can you imagine kung ano ang ginawa ninyo para sa turismo ng Central Luzon?
"Galing sa taga-doon, maraming maraming salamat dahil marami ang magkakaroon ng trabaho lalo na this summer because so many will be excited to see saan nag-shooting ang Kathniel, saan sila nagpunta...ano ba ang pwede namin gawin na nagawa nila?
"Bubuhayin ang komunidad, ang dalawang probinsiya actually kasi that's Pampanga and Tarlac.
"When the lahar [flow] happened, so much devastation occured but now you are giving them another chance."
Boy Abunda teased Kris by describing her spiel as a "genuine political speech."
Kris said with a laugh, "Baka nga nae-engganyo ako...magbago na naman ang isip ko!"
At the start of the talk show, Kris revealed that Crazy Beautiful You has already earned P32 million as of 9 p.m. on its opening day, February 25.
