Actress Kris Bernal's love team with Aljur Abrenica is coming to a close with The Last Prince airing its final episodes. The two have projects waiting for them but on separate paths. Kris will team up with model Daniel Matsunaga for an episode of Lovebug and Aljur will be with Rhian Ramos in a primetime series.
Yesterday, May 30, on Showbiz Central, Kris was strapped to a lie-detector machine to face master showbiz interrogator John "Sweet" Lapus and answer some past issues about her and Aljur, plus recent ones about her new project with Daniel.
TORRID KISSING SCENE. After the brief hellos with John, it was time for the first question: "Marami ang nagulat sa kissing scene ninyo ni Aljur sa The Last Prince na kakapalabas lang noong isang linggo. May pagka-torrid daw ito nang bonggang-bongga. Ang chismis daw, e, sa inyong dalawa daw ni Aljur, e, ikaw daw ang nadala! Kaya tatanungin ko na, Kris, nadala ka nga ba sa eksena?"
"Yes," admitted Kris. Because of her honesty, the lie detector gave her answer as "Truth." When asked to explain why, she said, "Kasi pang ilang na namin itong love scene, so tuwing nagkakaroon kami ng love scene, e, talagang, 'Aljur, in character tayo!' Siyempre, sabi ko nga na ganoon, e, characters namin, e, in love na in love. Gusto lang namin ipakita na in love na in love kami para hindi magmukhang stiff."
She added that an earlier love scene in Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin was unusual. "Naninigas ako!" she laughed. "So gusto ko lang pagandahin talaga."
DANIEL MATSUNAGA. That said, it was time for the second question. Rumor has it that ever since Brazilian-Japanese model Daniel Matsunaga came into the picture and joined the cast of The Last Prince, a love triangle issue burst forth with connecting issues like Aljur getting jealous and Daniel breaking up with his girlfriend because of her. Now, is it true that Kris is into Daniel more than Aljur?
"No," the petite actress calmly answered.
But the machine said otherwise: "Lie!"
Kris looked surprised as Sweet did his sweet moves on the stage with his deadly acrobatic dance moves. Without pausing for breath, Sweet turned to Kris and immediately asked, "Umapila ka sa barangay, baka ma-hurt ang mga Alkris fans! Baka nalilito damdamin mo? Ano pakiramdam mo na maglalayo na ang loveteam ninyo ni Aljur?"
"Siyempre, malungkot po sa akin," said Kris. "Magkasama kami for three years. Talagang lahat ng shows namin, e, magkasama kami. Pero lahat naman po, e, dumadaan sa ganoon. Lahat ng love team dadaan sa kailangan maghiwalay. Iyong tungkol kay Daniel, nagiging close kami ni Daniel, e."
Well, according to Sweet's informer, Kris and Daniel go out even when there's no taping?
"Saan kayo nagpupunta ni Daniel pag lumalabas kayo?" inquired Sweet.
"Ah, wala," said Kris. "Kasi si Daniel kasi madalas siya magyaya. Naging close kami dahil nagshu-shoot kami for Lovebug at nakasama ko siya sa Singapore. Siyempre, mas close pa rin kami ni Aljur."
THE NEW KRIS. The final question had to do with Kris's new look. Of course, fans of Kris have noticed that her appearance improved from her early days in StarStruck to her current status. Question is, did Kris undergo some enhancement for her face?
Kris exclaimed, "No!"
The lie detector affirmed, "Truth." When asked to explain how her beauty came about, she laughed, "Nagdadalaga lang siguro! Pero umabot talaga sa point na ang payat ko. 'Tapos, 'yan, kumain ako ng marami at pinapakain ako so nagkapisngi naman ako!"
