If you’ve seen the trailer for the “Ang Dalawang Mrs Reyes” starring Judy Ann Santos and Angelica Panganiban and thought it was hilarious, imagine how much fun they had on the set while working on the film!
Angelica enjoyed it so much that she wishes to extend it. "Ayoko nang matapos 'yung pelikula, kung pwede lang mag-shooting kami palagi. Grabe 'yung separation anxiety,” she said at the film’s grand media launch last Tuesday, January 9.
She explained, “Ang sarap kasi siyempre ang tagal namin ginawa 'yung movie, kapag may shooting kami nasa isang pwesto lang kami, tambay, kwentuhan magdamag, parang puro kalokohan 'yung ginagawa namin. Masaya talaga siya. I believe na naka-build ako ng mas deeper friendship and 'yun naman 'yung ite-treasure ko palagi. Forever."
But what the Box Office Drama Queen is most grateful from it all was being able to star alongside her “idol” Judy Ann - which she thinks would make other actresses from her generation feel jealous.
"Masyado siyang nakakatuwa. Talaga namang tinitingala ko siya,” Angelica said about the Prime Superstar. “I'm sure hindi lang ako. I'm sure ang daming naiinggit sa'kin, dahil nakaupo ako dito, katabi niya, nasa isang poster kami, pareho kaming Mrs. Reyes, so I'm sure ang daming, ‘Bakit hindi ako 'yung nandiyan, bakit siya?’ Ganyan. Gano'n 'yung pakiramdam ko ngayon, mayabang ako ngayon."
She has also gained an “ate” in Judy Ann, who’s very proud of all the things Angelica has achieved since they first worked together years ago.
"Matagal na kaming magkaibigan ni Angelica. Baby ko siya noong bata, ngayon hindi na siya baby-baby,” said Judy Ann. “Sa dami ng pinagdaanan niya sa buhay, nag-mature siya nang bongga in a very nice way because it strengthened her.”
She added that Angelica has grown into this “flower” that have gone through tough times with heartbreak. But Judy Ann said that that’s just what Angelica needed.
“Ngayon she blossomed into this beautiful flower na, pero 'pag gabi… bumabaho! Nalalanta sa pag-ibig. Pero napabuti siya nun, napabuti 'yung career niya, 'yung tingin niya sa buhay. Career woman na ito ngayon. Travel nang travel and I'm so happy for her,” Judy Ann relayed.
When asked if she ever offered love advice to Angelica, she said, "Hindi. Kaya na niya 'yan."
“Ang Dalawang Mrs Reyes” follows the story of Lianne (Judy Ann) and Cindy (Angelica Panganiban), two very different women with the same goal; and that is to keep their husbands.
But soon, they realized what they need to do is to keep them apart... from each other.
Will they get their revenge or will the jokes still be on them until in the end?
Directed by Jun Robles Lana, the film also stars Joross Gamboa, JC de Vera, Andrea Brillantes, Carmi Martin, and more.
Catch it this January 17 in cinemas!
