JM de Guzman was surprised by the score that he got from Barbie Imperial when she was asked to rate him as a kisser.
JM and Barbie opened up about playing the characters of Adrian and Mich in Precious Hearts Romances presents Araw Gabi during their recent PEP.ph Live Interview held at the PEP office in Mandaluyong City.
Barbie said about the strong reception for Araw Gabi, "Happy ako kasi maraming nagsasabi na hindi raw bagay sa akin ang role ni Mich."
For his part, JM (whose real name is Juan Miguel), said with a smile: "Sobrang grateful lang po talaga ako."
Since he has been part of Precious Hearts Romances way back in 2010, JM quipped, "Original hubadero ako!"
This is because PHR is known for its daring scenes such as those aired in its installment titled Midnight Phantom.
When ABS-CBN management was casting the stars for Araw Gabi, JM was asked to comment about the 9 actresses who auditioned for the lead role.
What made Barbie different from other girls who auditioned to become his leading lady?
JM admitted, "Yung kay Barbie, kinilig ako so sinabi ko yun na kinilig ako.
"Effortless ang chemistry namin."
Their love team is now known as JuanBie. JM revealed that they have done 3 kissing scenes already.
"Yung isa yung nire-rape kita," he reminded Barbie about the dream sequence that they did wherein he was very aggressive.
They also shared a kiss that was shown during the pilot episode and they also locked lips when they did a CPR scene.
Barbie was then asked: How would she rate JM as a kisser?
The two whispered to each other as they discussed JM's score.
"Ten raw pero para sa akin, seven," Barbie candidly admitted.
Upon hearing this, JM exclaimed, "Bakit? Saan ako nagkulang? Sumabit ba ang ngipin ko?"
JM looked back and said incredulously, "Seven?!"
Barbie relented and said, "O sige, eight."
Later on, when they were asked if they have become close even off-cam, JM said, "Close na kami."
As for Barbie, she revealed the quality that she likes most about JM.
"Malalim siya magsalita. Tama yung mga sinasabi niya.
"Kunyari about life...mapapaisip ka. Masarap kausap yung mga ganun."
