Liza Soberano did not feel any awkwardness when she shot her closet scene with love team partner Enrique Gil.
For their upcoming movie My Ex and Whys, Liza and Enrique shot a scene where their characters Cali and Gio were locked up in a closet.
In the scene, Enrique was required to go topless.
During the February 1 press conference of their upcoming film, Liza said that she was already comfortable seeing her onscreen partner topless when shooting their scenes, including those from their previous TV projects.
The 19-year-old actress said, "Sa totoo lang po, feeling ko, sobrang comfortable ako kay Quen, hindi ako naiilang!"
She then turned to Enrique and revealed, "At saka hindi kita binabash or anything, pero sa totoo lang po, ayoko ng lalaking sobrang ma-abs!"
Liza's revelation drew screams from the press and LizQuen fans present at the presscon.
She then recalled a scene in her TV series Dolce Amore when co-star Joseph Marco had to go topless.
Joseph is known for his six-pack abs which he showed in the now-defunct Kapamilya TV shows Pure Love and Pasion de Amor.
Liza narrated, "Totoo po yun! Nung Dolce Amore, may scene po kami ni Joseph Marco na nakahubad siya sa harapan ko, hindi ko siya matignan talaga!
"Hindi dahil kinikilig ako, dahil… I don't know! I have a phobia of seeing naked men. I don't know. Hindi ko po alam, it distracts me!"
Why didn't she feel awkward when she saw the body of Quen (Enrique's nickname)?
She answered, "Kasi parang wala pong malisya pag si Quen! Parang katawan ng baby!
"Hindi niya kailangan ng abs para… you know!"
Quen then said that even if Liza looks at his bod that way, he pointed out that he still needs to work on his abs.
He explained, "Kailangan ko po para sa susunod na project!"
He then told Liza, "Pero, thank you para dun, sweet mo dun!"
In a previous interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), the 24-year-old actor admitted that he was not prepared at all for his topless scene in this movie that will open in cinemas starting February 15.
As he explained then, "Hindi nga prepared yun, e! Biglaan yun so hindi masyadong prepared.
"Biglaan kasi, so whatever was there, yun na."
My Ex and Whys is helmed by rom-com director Cathy Garcia-Molina, who also directed LizQuen's TV shows Forevermore and Dolce Amore.
