Jolina recalls getting a good slap from Maricel

Remember that moment from the cult classic “Mean Girls” when one of the girls said that she got punched by Queen Bee Regina George in the face and thought it was awesome? 

Well, one of our favorite pop culture icons Jolina Magdangal had a similar encounter when she was younger in a scene with Diamond Star Maricel Soriano, no less. 

The “Magandang Buhay” host talked about it on the show last Monday, November 6, after listening to Maricel’s birthday message for her. 

Jolina recalled working with the veteran actress for the 1998 film “Kung Ayaw Mo Huwag Mo”. “Noong una talaga hindi ko akalain na ganoon siya ka-approchable.” She added, “Totoo palang masakit siyang manampal.” 

But it’s all good for Jolina, because she realized the fact that not everyone gets the opportunity to work with a high-caliber actress like Maricel. “Pero okay na okay lang. Talagang ninamnam ko 'yung sampal niya sa akin.” 

“Tapos 'yung mga iyakan scenes namin talagang tinreasure ko din 'yun, kasi 'di ba dati uso 'yung isang camera lang? So kahit na siya lang 'yung kinukuhanan talaga, sumo-support ako doon, nakiki-eksena pa rin ako, nakikiiyak pa rin ako,” she shared. 

Jolina praised her former co-star and expressed how she still holds their moments together to her heart. 

"Talagang dream come true na makasama ko si Ate Maria. Siya talaga ang idol ko. Ang galing niyang mag-drama, dramedy, ang galing niyang magpatawa. Talagang thankful ako na once nangyari sa buhay ko na nakasama ko siya," she ended. 

Jolina turned 38 last November 6.
