Kris Aquino talked about the possibility of her appearing on "China Rich Girlfriend" — the sequel to the Hollywood blockbuster "Crazy Rich Asians."
Both movies are based on books by bestselling author Kevin Kwan, who is a friend of Kris.
In the first film, Kris played the character of Princess Intan, a Malay royal.
During a recent media huddle for her endorsement with an online shopping brand, Kris shared, "I asked him (Kevin) because the opening of 'China Rich Girlfriend' is the wedding. And then I was asking him, 'Am I going to be at the wedding? Is Princess Intan invited to the wedding?'"
"And he said, 'Of course! Because you're the one who gave her (lead character Rachel Chu) the validation in 'Crazy Rich Asians.' So I said, 'Oh my gosh, I hope it happens.'"
Last September, Kevin revealed that he asked for Kris' help for two Pinoy characters in his new book, "Sex and Vanity."
He said, "I had asked my friend Kris Aquino for recommendations on the school of the Ortiz sisters."
Kris suggested St. Scholastica's College to Kevin. In the media huddle, Kris recalled how their conversation went.
"He said that, 'I would imagine that was when your mom went to school.' And I said, 'My mom went to St. Scholastica, then she went to Assumption, and then she went to school in the States," she shared.
"And then he used the schools in the States where my mom went. Because my mom went to this school in Philadelphia where Princess Grace of Monaco actually went, so that's included in the book."
Kris also shared that was the inspiration to another character in the new book!
"The sisters who are there [in the book], they have a cousin named Kris who owns the biggest talent agency in the Philippines. And then they were telling the girl that she could be a model, and that Kris is me. And I said, 'Thanks, Kevin!"
