When Robin Padilla was named as one of the 12 "Men Who Matter" by a lifestyle magazine recently, members of the press took the opportunity to ask him regarding two of his upcoming movies.
In a video interview uploaded on the Philippine Star’s website, Robin himself revealed that he has already met with Regal matriarch Mother Lily Monteverde regarding an upcoming movie, which will reportedly pair him with Marian Rivera.
Robin said with a smile: "Exciting nga, e.
"Nag-meeting na kami ni Mother, maganda ang konsepto..matindi.
"Humanda ka Marian Rivera...magte-training ka sa akin!"
In real life, Robin is married to Mariel Rodriguez while Marian is in a relationship with Dingdong Dantes.
Will Robin and Marian have kissing scenes in this upcoming movie?
"Hindi naman ako papayag na wala," stated Robin.
Won’t Mariel get jealous? He then explained, "Trabaho lang ’yon. Nasa loob po tayo ng pelikulang Pilipino. Kailangan nakakapagbigay tayo ng entertainment."
How excited is he to work with Marian Rivera?
"Si Marian ang masasabi nating reyna ng GMA. Isang malaking karangalan [ang makatrabaho siya].
"Ang ganda niya! Ano pa bang hihingin ng isang leading man? Wala nang hihilingin ang isang leading man," he said.
According to a report written by Jun Nardo in the Pilipino Star Ngayon, this Robin Padilla-Marian Rivera movie is being considered as a Valentine’s Day offering next year.
