Angeline Quinto is happy with the outcome of her kissing scene with Jake Cuenca in the movie Foolish Love, which opens on January 25 in cinemas.



Angeline Quinto admitted that she hesitated when she found out that she will have a torrid kissing scene with Jake Cuenca. 

The ABS-CBN singer revealed that she initially begged off from doing the kissing scenes for their movie Foolish Love.

In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at the January 19 blogcon of Foolish Love, Angeline admitted that she even talked to director Joel Lamangan regarding the intimate scenes.

She narrated, "Noong nabasa ko yung buong script, siyempre nagulat ako, may mga eksenang may kissing scene. Akala ko noong una, hindi naman ganon ka-torrid yung eksena.

"Hanggang sa nakausap ko si Direk Joel Lamangan. Kasi ito yung second movie ko na ginawa sa Regal na si Direk Joel din nagdirek."

It will be recalled that the veteran director also helmed her first movie That Thing Called Tanga Na (2015).

Angeline made a request back then: "Sabi ko, 'Direk, if ever iibahin na lang po ba yung mangyayari, pwede po ba yun?'

"Sabi niya, sayang naman kung hindi gagawin yung nakalagay dun sa script pero nagpromise sa 'kin si Direk Joel na hindi naman niya ako papabayaan sa eksena na gagawin namin.

"Hindi naman nga niya ko pinabayaan kasi grabe talaga yun, parang alam ko kung kelan gagawin yung eksena na yun simula umaga pa lang, magtatanong na ako kay Direk, 'Direk, ano oras po natin gagawin?'

"E, yun yung pinakalast na ginawa namin. Nagsama-sama yung pagod kasi, di ba, parang mag 24 hours ka na nagtatrabaho kasi lumipas na yung isang araw."

Angeline happily recalled that Jake also helped her overcome her hesitations.

She continued: "Hindi rin naman ako pinabayaan ni Jake sa eksenang yun kasi sinabi ko talaga sa kanya, 'Jake, never pa ako nagkaroon ng kissing scene na ganito. So kung ano man yung mangyari ngayon, alalayan mo lang ako.'

"Yun naman ang ginawa niya. Happy naman kasi hindi ko alam na kaya ko pa lang gawin yun, hindi ko alam na kaya ko pa lang gumawa ng ganoong eksena."

In this movie that opens this January 25, Angeline is cast as a woman in her thirties finding true love.

She chances upon Jake's character, a weirdo who is actually her childhood friend whom she wishes to see after a long separation.

Now that she has done a daring kissing scene, will she be willing to do it again in future projects?

The 27-year-old actress answered, "Alam mo, siguro, kasi for me, ha, hindi naman siguro masama kung susubukan ko yun.

"Kasi unang-una, hindi naman na ako 18 years old. Kung tutuusin nga yung edad kong to, yung iba may mga anak na. Twenty-seven years old na ako.

"Sinasabi ko nga, tatlong taon na lang, 30 na ako. So siguro, yung mga ganong bagay, hindi ko na dapat katakutan, e.

"Kung kaya namang gawin at lalo pag sa trabaho, basta kaya ko yung role na ibibigay niyo sa akin at magkasundo kami ng director na katrabaho ko, okay naman!"

PEP also asked Angeline to name actors that she would want to have kissing scenes with in the future.

"Talaga ba?

"Alam mo, pinaka idol ko talaga si Robin Padilla at saka si… medyo mga matatanda sa akin gusto ko, e. Aga Muhlach, at saka si Piolo Pascual.

"Pero hindi ba parang masyadong bata ang tingin nila sa akin?" she ended with a laugh.
