MANILA (Mabuhay) — Is it love at first sight for Gerald Anderson?
Anderson admitted that he was captivated by Arci Munoz the very first time he saw her.
The two are working together on Star Cinema’s post-Valentine offering, “Always Be My Maybe.”
“Standout beauty talaga,” he said. “‘Yung ganda niya ay ‘yung parang maiilang ka o mahihiya ka.”
But as they spent more time together on the set of their movie, Anderson revealed that Munoz is actually “kalog and down to earth.”
“Magaan katrabaho,” he said of the actress, who is currently starring in the ABS-CBN series “Pasion de Amor.”
In a separate interview, Anderson said that he can’t believe this is only Munoz’s first lead role in a film.
“Kapag nagre-rehearse kami, parang ginagawa na namin ‘yung eksena… Siya, talagang ginagawa niya kung paano niya gagawin sa eksena. Ako, first time ko na-encounter yung ganon, kasi nga doon siya nagsimula sa teatro,” he said.
Meanwhile, Munoz also told Star Cinema that she finds Anderson easy to work with.
“Sobrang galing ni Ge. Sobrang professional at sobrang masayang katrabaho.” she said. “Tahimik lang si Ge, pero kapag nasa eksena na doon niya ibinubuhos ang lahat.”
Directed by Dan Villegas, “Always Be My Maybe” also features Jane Oineza, Kakai Bautista, Ahron Villena, Matt Evans, Carlo Aquino and Pepe Herrera. (MNS)
