"Masaya ako na kasama ko siya ulit dahil nga talagang we're having a good time shooting the movie. Siyempre, it's a different experience kapag katrabaho mo ang isang John Lloyd Cruz," says Bea Alonzo about her reunion movie with the Box-Office King.


After almost three years of not working together in a movie, reigining Box-Office King John Lloyd Cruz and former Box-Office Queen Bea Alonzo, are reunited in Star Cinema's post-Valentine movie Miss You Like Crazy. (CLICK HERE to read related article.)

Bea admitted that she missed being paired with the actor and when they started shooting the movie, she discovered new things about John Lloyd.

"Ang sarap ulit katrabaho siya, ang dami ulit na matutunan sa kanya. Ang dami ulit bagong experience na napulot ko o nakuha ko sa paggawa ng pelikulang ito," Bea said at their movie's press conference last night, February 3, at Dolphy Theater in ABS-CBN compound.

Although they were paired in ABS-CBN's defunct primetime series I Love Betty La Fea (2008), Bea said the experience was different because they were not able to talk to each other then since she was always included in most of the scenes.

"Doon sa Betty La Fea kasi, kahit na magkatrabaho kami, e, halos kada eksena kasali ako at hindi talaga ako nakaka-chika sa kanya. Dito [sa Miss You Like Crazy], medyo matagal 'yong hintayan, tapos ang saya-saya sa set. Alam mo yun, puro biruan ang nangyayari. Ang sarap ulit makipagbiruan kay John Lloyd. Dati [naiilang] na akong makipagbiruan sa kanya, kasi parang, 'Uy, mabibiro ko pa kaya 'to? Kasi, baka iba na.' Pero ngayon, ganung-gano'n pa rin ang pagiging mabiro niya."

Bea also discovered that John Lloyd has opened himself to more people around him.

"Kasi, ngayon ko lang nakita kung gaano siya kakumportable sa group namin ngayon. Kaya niyang mag-stay doon, kahit mainit sa labas, para lang makipagkuwentuhan. Lalong-lalo na siya [Direk Cathy], kasi tagal na niyang kasama 'yan from One More Chance, Close To You. After One More Chance, may dalawa pa silang pelikula. Actually, ang greatest discovery ko is 'yong pagiging open niya sa mga tao ngayon.

"Mahiyain kasi si John Lloyd dati," she continued. "Ngayon, wala na siyang hiya! Dati, mahiyain pa siya. At saka kapag bagong kilala niya ang tao, hindi siya masyadong nagpapatawa, parang tine-test niya muna ang waters. Talagang halatang-halata naman na open na open na si John Lloyd."

KEEPING THE LOVETEAM SUCCESSFUL. John Lloyd and Bea have already proven that they are effective as onscreen lovers in their past movie and TV projects. However, both say that they don't have to be together in real life.

Bea explained, "Siguro maraming bagay sa mundo na hindi na dapat ipilit at naipipilit. So, in that case, hindi namin kailangang ipilit kung hindi talaga nangyayari at kung hindi talaga kami nabibigyan ng mga sitwasyon sa amin to do that or to feel that."

Didn't she ever get attracted to her loveteam partner over time?

"Siyempre, attractive naman si John Lloyd," Bea replied. "Siguro naman mga 70 percent ng mga Pinay sa Pilipinas, e, talagang... Attractive naman si John Lloyd, pero tulad ng sabi ko nga kanina, hindi talaga maipipilit kung hindi naipipilit."

The Kapamilya actress also gives credit to their mother network for always giving her and John Lloyd good projects.

"Siguro the other factor din po na nakaapekto sa loveteam namin ng malaking-malaki ay yung material na binibigay sa amin. At nagpapasalamat kami sa Star Cinema kasi talagang inaalagaan nila ang growth ng loveteam. Hindi talaga sila bumibigay. From the first movie na nagawa namin, hanggang sa 'yong every time talagang dapat mayroon kaming dapat ipakita. Talagang pinu-push nila kami beyond our limits, especially the directors na nabibigay sa amin," Bea said.

"KINABAHAN AKO." While Bea was not doing any project with John Lloyd, he did two movies with Pop Princess Sarah Geronimo—A Very Special Love (2008)and You Changed My Life (2009). These movies both became box-office hits, which somehow made Bea worried.

"Aaminin ko po, noong una kinabahan ako," she said. "Kagaya nga ng sinabi ni John Lloyd, noong una, tao lang kami, minsan hindi ka magiging logical mag-isip, e. Kinabahan ako kasi akala ko mawawala na ako sa eksena. Hindi ko alam kung, 'Teka, saan na ba ako pupunta? Saan na ba ako lalagay?'

"Pero after a while, lalung-lalo na noong napanood ko ang pelikula nila, na-appreciate ko talaga kung gaano nila pinaghirapan, at kung gaano kaganda 'yong pelikula. Doon ko naintindihan na dapat lang nila makamit 'yon, na maging box-office [hit] ang mga pelikula nila."

Instead of worrying, Bea improved her acting skills to do better on her next project.

"After that, siyempre I have to move on. After that, iisipin mo, 'Ano ba ang puwede kong i-offer na puwedeng makahabol ako? Baka sakaling makatrabaho ko sila ulit.' 'Yon ang ginawa ko.

"Kaya noong And I Love You So [her 2009 movie without John Lloyd], noong turn ko na, lahat ng kaya kong ibigay, ibinigay ko na. And nakita naman siguro ng Star Cinema 'yon, and tinupad nila ang pangako nila. Binigyan nila kami ng chance na magkatrabaho ulit [ni John Lloyd]. So, ang sarap ng pakiramdam na nakatrabaho ko ulit sila."

Bea also realized she still has the friendship she had built with John Lloyd and their director, Cathy Garcia-Molina.

"At saka genuinely, naging happy ako for Direk Cathy at kay John Lloyd kasi talaga namang malapit sila sa puso ko. Alam mo 'yon, kahit hindi kami nagkakasama ng ilang taon, kapag sinabi mong merong masamang nangyari or event sa buhay nila, hindi kami nagsasabihan na, alam [namin], deep inside our hearts na, masaya kami para sa isa't isa," ended Bea.
