Gerald Anderson has given us a glimpse on how he and Pia Wurtzbach made their kissing scene work in “My Perfect You.”
At their Victory Bloggers Conference today, March 15, Gerald admitted he and the beauty queen-actress had a difficult time bringing out the kilig for their first kissing scene.
“Wala daw kaming chemistry sabi ni Direk (Cathy Garcia-Molina),” Gerald said bluntly, relating how Direk Cathy told them she couldn’t “produce” kilig - it has to come from them.
“Right after kami kausapin ni Direk, sabi ni Pia sa’kin, ‘Oh my gosh gusto ko talagang mag-work ‘to,’ Kinakabahan kasi talaga siya,” he shared.
The actor continued that he wanted to make her feel as comfortable as possible, especially since they shot the kiss while in the water.
“Sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Let’s just enjoy this, kasi hindi natin alam kung kailan mauulit ‘to eh. Look around you, look how beautiful this place is, look at the guys working, look at Direk na sobrang passionate sa ginagawa niya… kumbaga ang part natin, is para mailabas ‘yung kilig,’” he said, adding that things went a lot more smoothly after that.
“Si Pia din kasi sobrang comfortable kasama kaya hindi na mahirap sa ganung scenes,” he said.
“My Perfect You” is now showing in cinemas nationwide.
