The Prenup lead stars Jennylyn Mercado and Sam Milby gave contrasting opinions on whether or not they would enter a prenuptial agreement in case they get married in the future.
Sam maintained that a prenup is out of the question when he settles down in the future.
“Personally, I don’t believe in prenup.
“It’s all or nothing when you become married. You share everything. You become one.
“Sa akin, ang prenup parang may negative vibe na kaagad. It’s like saying, ‘Kung sakaling hindi tayo [mag-work], kapag in the future naghiwalay tayo, ito ang agreement natin,” said Sam.
Hypothetically speaking, the Kapamilya actor explained that he would respect the girl if she would really insist on signing a prenup.
“I guess kahit papaano, if the girl really wants it, pagbigyan ko.
“Pero I will really try to find a way to win over the parents, the family, para may tiwala sila sa akin,” he explained.
Jennylyn, on the other hand, said that she won’t feel insecure or offended if a guy demands for a prenup before marrying her.
“Siguro sa akin kung gusto niya ng prenup ibibigay ko yung prenup.
“Kasi, di ba, kapag mag-asawa kayo, kung ano yung sa kanya, sa ‘yo rin, kung ano yung sa ‘yo, sa kanya rin.
“Pero siyempre yung mga pinaghirapan mo, yung mga bagay na sa ‘yo talaga, gusto mo proteksyunan.
“So ok din naman, walang problema. Kung gusto niya, ok ako. Kung ayaw niya, ok lang din ako,” she asserted.
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the media were able to interview Jennylyn and Sam at the presscon of The Prenup, held at 38 Valencia, Quezon City last Tuesday night.
Directed by Jun Lana, The Prenup tackles the story of Wendy and John, whose whirlwind romance begins in the United States.
But when they broke the news about their engagement back in the Philippines, John’s rich parents refused to give the young couple their blessing unless Wendy agrees to a prenuptial agreement.
Although this is their first movie together, Sam shared that he and Jennylyn instantly connected when they started shooting for The Prenup in the U.S. last July.
“Sa pictorial pa lang, nakita ko na napakabait at walang arte talaga si Jennylyn.
“She’s very outgoing and giving as an actor.
“Sa sports din, I love mixed martial arts, tapos siya, yun talaga ang sports niya.
“At ang ganda niya!” Sam cheerfully exclaimed.
In the same vein, Jennylyn said that she appreciates Sam’s thoughtfulness as her leading man.
“Nakaka-miss yung pag-aalaga niya kasi tuwing nasa set kami, ano ‘yan, tatawag, ‘Anong gusto mo? Nandito ako sa ganito.’
“Napakamaalalahanin niya at gusto niya palaging kumain,” she revealed.
Jennylyn also took note of Sam’s good work ethics.
“Very gentleman and professional si Sam. Never siyang na-late sa buong shooting namin.
“Saka pictorial pa lang magkasundo na kami, naglolokohan kami, nag-aasaran kami, kulitan.
“Unang pagkikita pa lang namin yun. So, alam niyo na nangyari sa mga sumunod. Magulo na!”
Produced by Regal Films, The Prenup is showing in theaters on October 14.
Aside from Jennylyn and Sam’s fresh tandem, the supporting cast of The Prenup will surely entertain moviegoers with their comic fights in the film.
Jaclyn Jose and Freddie Web will portray as Sam’s snobbish parents, while Gardo Versoza and Dominic Ochoa are cast as Jennylyn’s adoptive gay parents.
