In her Star Cinema Chat interview last February 23, Karen happily shared one of her most memorable experiences on the set of their latest film.
"Nung nag-birthday ako sa set. Kasi first time ko na mag-birthday sa set, at the same time first time ako i-surprise sa set," Karen said.
She went on to detail everything that has happened.
"'Di lang siya bastang surprise na 'SURPRISE!' Hindi. Pinagalitan ako ni Direk... So talagang naiyak talaga ko kasi from the favorite director ko na parang 'Wow' sila pa 'yung grupo na sumurprise sa'kin. Nakaka-touch."
Karen, who plays the role of Nina, Cali's (Liza) best friend in the film, also related the lessons she learned from doing the film.
"Siguro 'yung hindi ka na dapat magtanong. Kasi eventually, malalaman at malalaman mo yung sagot," she relayed.
The 20-year-old actress then admitted that she personally experienced it.
"Na-experience ko rin naman na ang dami kong tanong. Totoo nga ba, pangit ba ko? Natanong ko na rin 'yon sa sarili ko," Karen explained. "'Di ba 'ko deserving para sa'yo? Kapalit-palit ba ko? Kung may kulang ba sa'kin?"
"My Ex and Whys" is definitely a blockbuster hit, having earned P31.5 million on its first day of screening and P200 million in just one week.
This "Most Beautiful Valentine" film is still showing in cinemas nationwide!
