“Magaspang. Aha-ha-ha!” Valeen Montenegro said jokingly when asked about her kissing scenes and love scenes with Jerald Napoles.
The two GMA-7 artists are headlining the film The Write Moment, which is now currently showing in cinemas.
Turning serious, Valeen replies, “Sobrang kinabahan ako. Alam niya 'yon, e.
“Sabi ko, ‘Ikaw na talaga bahala sa ‘kin ah, bahala na.’ Minsan binubulungan ko siya ng mga gano’n,” explains Valeen at the press conference of of their film held last June 19.
“Sobrang kinakabahan ako kasi hindi ko alam kung saan pupunta. May mga blocking kasi. May mga kailangan i-hit na points.
“Aside from the mismong eksena, may mga blocking na kailangan pang alalahanin, so from the very start, I trusted him na maaalagaan niya ako sa mga gano’ng eksena, saka masaya.”
Furthermore, Valeen said about their kissing scene, “Funny. Ha-ha-ha! Passionately funny.
“You’ll get what we mean pag napanood niyo ang eksena na 'yon.”
Aside from the movie, Valeen and Jerald Napoles are regular co-hosts of the GMA-7 weekend show Sunday PinaSaya and are actually close friends.
Meanwhile, The Write Moment is Valeen’s first-ever starring role in a film after more than a decade in showbiz.
She was also asked about having Jerald as her leading man, who does not fit the mold of a conventional leading man.
“Honestly, ayoko ng ibang leading man other than Je [Jerald].
“Kasi sobrang comfortable ko po with Je I know.
“I’m in good hands, plus I just trusted Direk Doms [Dominic Lim] and him na habang ginagawa namin yung film, trust lang ako ng trust sa kanila at sumusunod lang ako kasi I know I’m with good hands.”
The Write Moment is an official entry in the 2017 QCinema International Film Festival.
The film is produced by IdeaFirst Company and Viva Films with CMB Films.
