Kris Aquino feels grateful meeting Warner Bros. Pictures executive Toby Emmerich at the premiere of Crazy Rich Asians. She says, "It was just so heartwarming how many pictures Mr. Emmerich took of us because it just proved to me that anywhere in the world—our graciousness as a people is valued."


Inagaw ni Kris Aquino ang spotlight sa world premiere ng Hollywood film na Crazy Rich Asians sa TCL Chinese Theatre, kahapon, August 8 (Manila time).

Lutang na lutang sa green carpet ang kanyang classic modern Filipiniana yellow gown, na gawa ng Filipino designer na si Michael Leyva.

Maraming netizens ang nagandahan sa disenyo ng suot ni Kris, pati na ang suot niyang mamahaling alahas na tadtad ng diyamante.

May mga nagsabi ring nasapawan ni Kris ang main cast dahil sa kulay ng kanyang gown.

Ngunit may ilang nagtaka kung bakit wala sa group photo ng buong cast ng pelikula si Kris, na may special participation bilang si Princess Intan.

Tanong ng follower niya sa Instagram na si @instagreatpaolo: “May I ask why you were not in group photo with the other cast members @krisaquino? I saw @scmpnews coverage; it would have been even great.”

Kaagad din siyang sinagot ni Kris.

Paliwanag ng TV host-actress, “because nahiya naman akong umepal & it was so nice to chat w/ the family of Mr. Emmerich & the rest of the Filipinos inside.”


Si Mr. Toby Emmerich ang presidente ng Warner Bros. Pictures na nag-produce ng Crazy Rich Asians.

Kasunod na ikinuwento ni Kris ang kanilang naging usapan ng Hollywood producer.

Bahagi ng kanyang post sa Instagram, "If you’ll ask me what my unforgettable moment inside the TCL Chinese Theater was—it was being approached by the @wbpictures group chairman Toby Emmerich because he wanted to introduce his favorite staff member from the Beverly Hills Hotel who is a Filipina-American.

"He said that for 25 years she’d been taking such great care of him but had never asked for premiere night tickets except for tonight for @crazyrichasians because she wanted to meet me.

"It was just so heartwarming how many pictures Mr. Emmerich took of us because it just proved to me that anywhere in the world—our graciousness as a people is valued.

If you’ll ask me what my unforgettable moment inside the TCL Chinese Theater was- it was being approached by the @wbpictures group chairman Toby Emmerich because he wanted to introduce his favorite staff member from the Beverly Hills Hotel who is a Filipina American. He said that for 25 years she’d been taking such great care of him but had never asked for premiere night tickets except for tonight for @crazyrichasians because she wanted to meet me. It was just so heartwarming how many pictures Mr. Emmerich took of us because it just proved to me that anywhere in the world- our graciousness as a people is valued. I’m sure Bimb & i had the honor of being seated w/ his family because of how much affection a fellow Filipina had for me... @kevinkwanbooks made sure to check on me & as always he expressed so much gratitude for the support of Filipinos worldwide. P.S. Nabalitaan ko po na may konting sagutan na naganap between my brother & Sec Alan Cayetano- sa hindi sinasadyang choice- my clutch came from the Manila Fame & was given by @mayorlanicayetano. #lovelovelove THANK YOU to all the Filipinos who showed up w/ their flags, banners, and patiently waited since lunchtime to get prime spots. Yung effort na binigay nyo i know wasn’t just for me but because of Philippine pride. Uulitin ko po #kaysarapmagingpilipino. This was a chance to represent our country & i thank God for the once in a lifetime blessing. ??????????????????
