Coleen Garcia describes boyfriend Billy Crawford as "seloso" or the jealous type.
Did she ask permission from Billy before doing sexy scenes in her upcoming movie Ex With Benefits?
"Before I even accepted the role, sinabi ko na. Hindi naman paalam, pero sinabi ko," the 22-year-old actress-host told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) during the presscon for the movie, which also topbills Derek Ramsay and Meg Imperial.
Coleen added, "He has been very understanding."
She describes her boyfriend of one year as "cute na seloso lang, pero hindi siya nakakatakot."
Coleen adds that Billy, who is 10 years her senior, is "seloso na may dahilan."
She explains, "Maiintindihan mo. Kahit naman siguro kung gumawa rin siya ng ganito, magseselos rin ako.
"But it never came to a point that it interferes with my work."
GETTING INTO DETAILS. Coleen recalled that she initially didn't want to describe her intimate scenes with Derek, her leading man in Ex With Benefits, to Billy. But he wanted to know the details.
"Ayoko muna i-discuss sa kanya pero umupo kami, just the other day, and sabi niya, 'I just want to know. Describe mo sa akin specifically.'
"Dinescribe ko talaga sa kanya everything in very vivid detail kasi makikita rin niya naman.
"Maririnig niya rin naman sa iba, so mas maganda na manggaling sa akin."
How daring is Coleen in this movie?
"Kita ang buong likod ko pero wala namang kita sa private parts ko," she replied.
How did Billy react to her sexy scenes?
"Nung una siyempre, parang nagseselos siya, pero not in a way na inaaway ako.
"At the end of the day, he has been very understanding and supportive, and that is all the matters to me."
REASSURING BILLY. How did she reassure Billy he has nothing to worry about?
Coleen said, "Habang tumatagal, I reassure him.
"Kasi ganun naman ang relationship, kailangan niyong mag-usap. Kailangan niyo ng open communication.
"Kumbaga, lahat ng nangyari sa movie, ikinuwento ko sa kanya in full detail para alam niya.
"Siya mismo nagtanong, 'All emotions aside, tell me exactly what happened.'
"He didn't get mad at me."
Coleen understands that Billy's jealous feelings is but normal.
"I'm happy rin naman na ang boyfriend ko, hindi yung tipong walang pakialam. Nagseselos pa rin siya."
ON DEREK RAMSAY. Did Billy get jealous of Derek?
"No," said Coleen.
"When he first learned about this movie, dun siya medyo natakot.
"Pero when he found out that Derek was doing it, dun siya naging kampante.
"He knows that Derek is very professional."
Coleen pointed out that she and Derek discussed their love scenes in detail so they could finish it in one take.
"We talked about it so much para one take lang. Kailangan todo-bigay na talaga para hindi na aabot sa take 2.
"True enough, hindi kami umaabot sa take 2.
"I guess the key is to prepare less but discuss about it more."
