The new Star Cinema film "Three Words To Forever" will star the iconic love team of Sharon Cuneta and Richard Gomez, together with Kathryn Bernardo. Kathryn's ever-gwapo leading man on-screen (and off-screen ) Daniel Padilla, however is not part of it. And because of the phenomenal effect of their team-up, fondly called KathNiel, the media couldn't help but ask how Kathryn feels about the situation.

Kathryn answered, "Yeah, okay [lang po]. Actually, hinatid niya ako kanina [dito] kasi excited din po siya."
The director of "Three Words To Forever", Cathy Garcia-Molina, who also helmed the pair's films "The Hows of Us" and "She's Dating the Gangster," is a strong believer that Kathryn and Daniel can take on projects independent from each other.
"Bakit naman hindi [pwedeng mag-isa si Kathryn]? Hindi naman sila package deal," Direk Cathy said yesterday, August 12, during the press interview after the story conference of the new film.
Megastar Sharon then interjected, "Oo naman. Ganyan na ganyan ako nung nag-uumpisa, 'wag kang papayag na package kayo forever."
Direk Cathy then continued to say how happy and proud Daniel actually is for Kathryn.
"In all fairness to Daniel, [he] is very supportive of Kathryn. Siya naman ay very open, silang dalawa actually, na magkaroon ng growth, independently, ang bawat isa. Dapat lang. Kasi Kathryn is Kathryn. Hindi naman 'yan KathNiel pinanganak. Neither is Daniel. Pinanganak naman 'yan Kathryn lang 'di ba? And Daniel will be very happy na makita si Kathryn to blossom on her own," she related.
Sharon, who will be working with Kathryn for the first time, then said that Daniel is very much welcome to visit their set.
Kathryn then confirmed that Daniel expressed his intentions to visit them when they start filming. "Sinabi niya, Tita, magvi-visit siya."
Direk Cathy also added, "Mas excited pa nga si Daniel, excited nang dumalaw sa set. For the first time daw dadalaw siya as bisita [hindi as an actor]."
How sweet of Daniel!
