It’s been a few years since we’ve seen Toni Gonzaga and Sam Milby on the big screen together, but let’s not sleep on their reign as one of the early 2000’s most iconic love teams.
Today, August 30, we celebrate the 12th anniversary of their first ever film together “You Are the One”. Also one of the earliest films of “The Hows of Us” blockbuster director Cathy Garcia-Molina, the film tells an incredibly heartfelt, incredibly Filipino story of Sally, a woman (reluctantly) seeking to reunite with her family in the United States and Will, the ornery man who denied her visa. Will, following the tradition of handsome sullen movie leading men, also has a heartbreaking backstory: he was given up for adoption by his Filipino family and in between working in the American consulate and enjoying Manila’s vibrant nightlife, he’s been searching for his real parents.
Look back on the film’s best and most romantic moments in the gallery above!
After the success of “You Are the One”, Sam and Toni went on to topbill 2007’s “You Got Me!”, 2008’s “My Big Love, and 2009’s "Ang Tanging Pamilya: A Marry Go Round".
