Through the years, Gerald Anderson has become a reliable and versatile leading man.
He’s established undeniable chemistry with his many leading ladies Kim Chiu, Sarah Geronimo, Arci Munoz, Bea Alonzo, and now, Pia Wurtzbach for “My Perfect You.”
Not everyone can pull that off, so what’s Gerald’s secret?
The actor shared it’s focusing not on who his leading lady is, but the happiness he can bring through his films.
“‘Yung motivation ko… is the story. Kung makakapagbigay tayo ng pag-asa sa tao,” he said at the “My Perfect You” Media Launch last March 10.
He continued, “‘Yun ‘yung mas nagi-inspire sa akin, na kapag napanood ng tao ‘to, talagang magkakaroon sila ng hope or may matutunan sila sa istorya… Hindi ‘yung kung sino ang ka-love team.”
Gerald also related he’s had a wonderful experience having Pia as his leading lady for the first time.
“[Akala mo Miss Universe lang siya pero] siya ‘yung mas kalog, siya ‘yung mas down-to-earth sa shoot… siya ‘yung sobrang kumportable kasama,” he said, adding that he was blown away by Pia’s acting skills.
“I think she has the makings of the next Star Cinema leading lady,” he said. “Siya ‘yung energy ng movie na ‘to, siya ‘yung nagdadala ng sunshine, ng comic relief… maraming bagong mapapanood kay Pia dito.”
“My Perfect You” is directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina. Produced by ABS-CBN Films, Star Cinema, it opens in cinemas tomorrow, March 14.
