Robin Padilla just can't stop praising Joshua Garcia for his humility.
The pair, who played the uncle and nephew tandem of Cocoy and Jason in the recently released "Unexpectedly Yours," sat down with Rappler Talk Entertainment. There, Robin shared his first impression of his younger co-star (and couldn't stop complimenting his down-to-earth nature).
He said, "Mabait 'tong batang 'to eh, nakasuporta sa matanda. Kaya kung ganyan lahat ng bata, ayos sana."
"[Si Joshua] masarap kasama. Hindi nagmamarunong."
Robin explained, "Mahirap 'yung kasama kasi na nagmamarunong. Itong batang 'to hindi naman ako nakaramdam ng nagmamarunong siya, kundi nagtatanong."
Joshua flushed by his side as Robin further pressed, "Hindi siya atribido."
"Unexpectedly Yours" tells the story of Patty (Sharon Cuneta), a proud and successful marketing executive in the midst of a midlife crisis, finds herself being reunited with her high school batchmate, the simple and humble seaman Cocoy (Robin Padilla), not only as organizers of their high school reunion but also as new neighbors.
And as Cocoy moves in next door, Yanni (Julia Barretto), Patty's headstrong daughter who is eager to leave and to live her own life, also meets his fun-loving nephew Jason (Joshua Garcia), who has been an avid follower of Yanni and her social media accounts.
Now, as both Patty and Yanni are undergoing big changes in their lives, how will things turn out when love unexpectedly comes their way?
The film, helmed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, is now on its second week in cinemas.
