Joshua, Julia compete to get in Kris’ good graces

THE love team of Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto, that scored their first hit on the big screen in “Vince, Kath & James” in 2016, followed by “Love You to the Stars and Back” and “Unexpectedly Yours” in 2017, is now back in their fourth screen outing, “I Love You, Hater.” In the story of this rollicking romantic comedy, they actually start as rivals. 

Joshua is Joko, the breadwinner in his family while Julia is Zoey, a go-getting young woman who wants to work with the so-called Digital Empress, Sasha Imperial, played by the comebacking Kris Aquino. 

Kris as Sasha needs a new executive assistant but she would work only with women and gays, so Joshua has to pretend that he is a homosexual to get the job, much to the chagrin of Julia for whom working with Kris is a dream job, so she insists to Kris that she’s actually the one who’s better for the job. So Kris also gets her and they become tough competitors in trying to get to the good graces of Kris. 

But naturally, things get quite complicated when Joshua can’t help but be sexually attracted to Julia and he starts regretting he presented himself to her as a gay man. He also cannot reveal the truth as he would lose his job with Kris. As to where all this will be heading, you have to find out when the movie is shown on July 11 in theaters nationwide, as directed by the neophyte Giselle Andres. 

***

Did Kris Aquino have any second thoughts being directed by a newbie whose only previous film was “Loving in Tandem” with the “MayWard” love team. 

“Our director is young but so brilliant,” says Kris. “She knows how to push the right buttons to bring out the best in me. Ganun siya kagaling. Ang tinanong ko lang, who did she work with before? When I learned na assistant siya ni Direk Olive Lamasan for eight years, okay na ko. If Inang believes in her to give her this break, that means she’s really good. Actually, it’s the two stars na pinanood ko muna ang mga pelikula. I caught glimpses of their teleseryes, but iba kasi ang sa movies. So I watched them in ‘Love You to the Stars and Back’ and ‘Unexpectedly Yours’ and they’re good. They made me laugh and cry, kaya gusto ko silang makasama. With them in my comeback movie, para na akong nakasandal sa pader.”

How is it working with Joshua and Julia? 

“They certainly know their craft. Masunurin silang mga bata. My son (Bimby) loves Julia, so if Joshua would not behave, my son is just waiting in the wings. He came to the shooting and he kissed me and Julia 40 times. Ako sa cheeks, si Julia, sa lips. Iba talagang kamandag meron si Julia Barretto. My son identifies with her so much. That means, napakagaling niyang artista. She’s so hungry. 

“Si Joshua naman, the more I get to know him, the more I understand why Julia is in love with him. He’s amazing because the work needs him, he’s the real deal. In 15 or 20 years from now, he’ll still be here as one of our greatest actors in the industry.”

Of course, both Julia and Joshua are very thankful to Kris for her kind words for them. 

“Sa tagal na niya sa industry, it’s an honor that she appreciates our work,” they say. “Dahil diyan, mas inspired kami, mas ginaganahan to give our best sa pag-arte.”

Kiko Estrada is dead serious in his ambition to be recognized as a good actor rather than just as a rugged hunk. “Although I do pictorials and scenes showing me without any shirt on, my main concern is more about people recognizing me for my good acting,” he says. “And I’m happy that I’m being given projects where I get the chance to show that I can do different kinds of roles.”

Right now, he plays a wholesome role as Justin in the GMA-7 romantic comedy, “My Guitar Princess,” as the confidante of Julie Anne San Jose, who plays the title role. On the big screen, he’s one of the four leads in Regal Entertainment’s youth oriented film, “Walwal,” that opens on June 27. But in another film, “My Stepmother’s Lover,” he does a nude love scene with Sunshine Cruz, his most daring movie to date.

Kiko’s paternal grandfather was the late George Estregan, who did a lot of sexy films. His dad, Gary Estrada, also went sexy but later forayed into politics, although he has not forgotten acting as he is now seen regularly on the hit GMA-7 afternoon soap, “The Stepdaughters,” where he plays the dad of Katrina Halili. 

Kiko’s mom is former actress Cheska Diaz and his maternal grandfather was the famous contravida, the late Paquito Diaz. So you can say that acting is really in his blood.

“I’m currently working with my mom in ‘Walwal,’” says Kiko. “So ang dream ko naman ngayon is makatrabaho rin ang dad ko as we haven’t worked together. Since we’re both with the Kapuso network, hindi naman siguro imposibleng mangyari ito in the near future.”

Her ex-girlfriend Barbie Forteza has since found a new love in Jak Roberto, but Kiko says he has remained loveless since then. 

“It’s my choice. Mas gusto ko talagang mag-focus muna sa career ko. Maraming projects na dumarating and I want to give my best efforts and my undivided attention to them.”

Kylie Padilla is back to acting as the latest addition in the cast of GMA-7’s hit primetime thriller, “The Cure.” She has already started taping for the show and she’s glad that her role calls for her to do some action scenes. She’s really ready to go back to work since her love son, Alas, is now almost one year old. 

“I like my role and I really enjoy doing it kasi naipapakita kong kaya kong mag-action,” she says. “I wish they’d give me a lot of fight scenes.”

It’s Kylie’s choice to remain a Kapuso while her partner, Aljur Abrenica, is now with ABS-CBN. One of those who’s happy to see her acting again is Ruru Madrid.  Ruru even posted a message for Kylie in his social media account gladly welcoming her back. 

Kylie was paired with Ruru in the reboot of “Encantadia” and the public’s reaction to their tandem was very positive, but Kylie had to leave the show prematurely because of her unforeseen pregnancy. Now, their fans are requesting Mark Reyes, director of “The Cure,” to also get Ruru to join the show so that they can be together again on screen.
