Gerald’s awkward moments with Bea
Gerald Anderson admits he felt awkward doing his initial scenes opposite Bea Alonzo in their still untitled movie that has just started shooting. It can be remembered that they became a couple in 2010 but didn’t last that long since Bea received heavy bashing from the fans, particularly Kim Chiu’s.
“I think it’s just normal to feel this way considering that this is our first project together, but one thing I’m certain is she’s someone I admire so much,” Gerald reveals.
Many are curious if reconciliation between them is possible.
“I can’t comment on that. At this point, Bea and I are focused on doing meaty and good projects, like the film we’re presently shooting. Actually, I think matters like that should not be played up now. It must not be the main topic for discussion.
“Bea’s such a professional actress. She’s simply amazing. I enjoy every minute we spend together on the set. I’m learning a lot from her. It’s like I’m watching a movie when we’re together in a scene. I’m just going with the moment.”
But it is said that love is lovelier the second time around and can work for the two of them.
“Is that so? Ha-ha-ha! To be honest, I don’t think about it. That’s the factor there. It’s not my top priority as of now but to come up with good potboilers and give the audience quality entertainment.”
The handsome lad believes though that time will come when he will achieve balance between his career and love life.
“Yes, when you will have the best of both worlds, so to speak. When you’re single and unattached, you’ll have more time to do the things you are passionate about…to enhance yourself. I just wish that eventually, I’ll be able to mix a happy love life and a stable profession,” says Gerald.
Janella Salvador and Elmo Magalona are happy to hear that they have strong screen chemistry based on the audience’s reaction during the recent advanced screening of their launching vehicle, Born for You.
“I’m glad to know that,” states Janella. “At least, the acting workshop we went into really paid off.”
“That’s true!” seconds Elmo. “It taught us how to be open to each other and remove our inhibitions. But what’s good about Janella is that she is not hard to approach. I got to know her better when we shot various scenes in Japan. It helped for us to really become more comfortable with each other!”
“We spent ten days in the Land of the Rising Sun. I guess, it gave us enough time to really warm up to each other. We had great bonding moments there. So, yes, the opportunity to build chemistry came in when we flew to Japan,” Janella explains.
Interestingly, the two leads of Born for You have one favorite scene.
“Oh yes! It’s when we bumped each other at the Shibuya Crossing. We had to shoot the scene various times. It came out beautifully. The ‘kilig’ element is at its best in that particular scene. During the advanced screening, even Elmo and I got tickled pink because of that,” avers Janella.
“When we were shooting said scene, I had no reservations. I gave it my all. Surprisingly, it appeared so natural on cam. Janella and I are really proud that we were able to pull off that particular scene well,” ends Elmo.
