Kris Aquino said she has no problem with Vice Ganda impersonating her in the 2017 Metro Manila Film Festival entry, Gandarrapiddo: The Revenger Squad.
Every so often, Vice also impersonates Kris when the latter does comic ad libs on ABS-CBN’s noontime show It’s Showtime.
Speaking to PEP.ph, (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Kris said, “Of course, it’s always flattering that somebody as famous as Vice is still mimicking me, so thanks.”
Based on the trailer, Vice mimicked Kris’s distinct speaking voice while tearfully saying this line, “This is for you naman... para hindi mo ma-commit the same mistakes na na-commit ko before."
Asked if she has seen the trailer, Kris replied, “Not yet, I haven’t.”
Then, the 46-year-old TV host-actress revealed that she was offered to do a cameo role for the same film.
“They have actually asked me to do a cameo. But it was a kontrabida.
“So, sabi ko, ‘Ayoko kaya maging kontrabida.’ Hahaha!
“Tapos, sabi ko, ‘Marami akong brands na magagalit kapag nagkontrabida ako.’
“I would have loved to do it. Pero sabi ko, ‘Ba’t ayaw niyo akong maging mabait?’ Hahaha!”
PEP.ph's latest interview with Kris was held after a casual merienda session for Adobomall online shopping site/app, held at Florabel Restaurant in Estancia Mall, Pasig City, yesterday, December 11.
In a separate interview last October 20, Kris told PEP.ph that she and Vice haven’t seen each other for quite some time.
But she added that they still keep in touch either through text messaging or through updates from their common friends.
Kris said, “We really haven’t seen each other even if we’re neighbors. Hindi kami nagtatagpo.
“Actually, kasi siguro iba rin talaga yung oras namin. Gising siya sa gabi, tulog kami sa gabi. So, yun.
“And busy siya nagsu-shooting. Panay shoot-shoot siya.”
