“Kung bata lang talaga ako, si Alden,” Kris Aquino declared unabashedly when asked in an online video about her celebrity crushes.
“I love Alden. I'm really a fan," the 46-year-old celebrity gushed over the Kapuso actor.
“Talagang tuwang-tuwa ako sa kanya, you know, kasi ang bango-bango niya tingnan, di ba?
“Hindi kami close talaga, ha.”
Kris said she follows Alden's acting projects.
She singled out his portrayal of activist/playwright/director Bonifacio Ilagan in the GMA documentary Alaala: A Martial Law Special.
“Galing na galing ako sa kanya talaga, di ba nga, pinost ko nga, e.
"That martial law special four times kong pinanood, galing na galing ako sa kanya doon."
Kris also made special mention of Alden's telemovie with screen love-team partner Maine Mendoza.
"Yung Love Is, yung sa kanila ni Maine, twice ko na napapanood.”
Recall that Maine surged to online fame for her Kris Aquino dubsmash videos.
According to Kris, she met the 25-year-old actor "before-before, before the whole AlDub."
She recalled, “He was so cute because he said, 'Miss Kris, I'm Alden.'
"Sabi ko, 'I know you!' Yung Little Bossings days ito.
“Kasi sinabi ko sa kanya, 'Every day nadadaanan ko yung billboard mo nung papunta ako sa ABS.'
"Kasi sa GMA ako nagyu-U turn, noong time na yun, he had a serye.
"So, ang laki-laki ng billboard niya, sabi ko, 'Kilala kita because of your billboard.'"
Alden was the only local male celebrity she mentioned in the interview.
Kris said her celebrity crushes are Hollywood stars Wentworth Miller, Keannu Reeves, Adam Sandler, and the late Paul Walker.
