Crazy Rich Asians author Kevin Kwan says about Kris Aquino: "Everything she does gets viral."


Crazy Rich Asians author Kevin Kwan considers the appearance of Kris Aquino as a "highlight" of the upcoming Hollywood movie.

Kwan talked about Kris in the Hollywood adaptation during a recent interview with Milken Institute's Curtis Chin. The host described Kris as a "super celeb interviewer" and "media star."

When Chin asked Kwan about Kris, the author of the best-selling novel confirmed:

"She's definitely in the movie. She's a highlight of the movie, for me."

Chin predicted that Kwan's statement will "go viral in the Philippines."

Kwan laughed as he said, "I hope so. She doesn't need my help, though.

"Everything she does gets viral."

Through her Instagram account, Kris thanked Kevin who described Filipino fans in the Philippines as "superfans."

Kris, who will play Princess Intan in Crazy Rich Asians, pointed out that this is the reason why she didn't mind even when people taunted her and belittled her role in the Hollywood movie.

She wrote: "My nephew @jiggycruz sent me the whole interview. #family My KCAP team led by @paanipedro edited the meaningful moment for me...

"i was grateful to watch & hear all the generous words to describe me Mr. Curtis Chin used BUT to actually view @kevinkwanbooks answer in reference to me “she’s a highlight of the movie, for me, she’s a highlight...” what more could a girl who only dreamed of this say but- THANK YOU Kevin, for the affirmation, but more importantly for appreciating that we Filipinos are @crazyrichasians #superfans...

"i know my part would never have been “tweaked” had it not been because Kevin wanted to reciprocate the #lovelovelove we Filipinos have from book 1 consistently supported him with.

"(The clips we included are from the audition we submitted to the @crazyrichasians casting directors & producers; after the Philippine theatrical release on August 22- we’ll hopefully be able to upload most of it on my official FB page & my @youtube The Aquinos channel.)
