MANILA — Following her confirmation of the upcoming movie that she will be doing with Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista, actress Kris Aquino explained why she agreed to do the project.
Through an Instagram post, Kris Aquino said she accept the mixed reactions of netizens when she confirmed about the project.
Aquino cited a quote from the movie, “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” which says:
“We met at the wrong time. That’s why I keep telling myself that maybe one day years from now, we’ll meet in a coffee shop in a far away city somewhere and we could give it another shot.”
The actress then wrote:
“I read this quote many months ago, thak you @noringai for sending it.. I respect that some of you disagree with my choice, but maybe you should respect my reasons?
1. It’s just a movie, but we are being given the rarest of opportunities to answer all our WHAT IFs-through the eyes & and expressed by the words of the #hugotqueen Direk @tonet_jadaone.
2. The storytelling is realistic, family centered, funny, yet still uplifting & inspiring.
3. Come on, a Star Cinema movie is the way we wish life could be; poignant, emotional, lovely, memorable and with a heart tugging soundtrack…
4. Because I’m not the same Kris I was 15 months ago, and I think I’m a more mature, positive, and “live each day as it comes” version of me.
And 5. Because even if it will only happen in a movie, I deserve to experience that happy ending- kahit sa pelikula man lang,”
The post ended with:
That’s the last I have to say about our movie, as I said, we don’t start shooting until July. 😊 GOOD NIGHT.
