Fate worked its magic and led Angelica Panganiban, JM de Guzman, and Direk Antoinette Jadaone to reunite on the latest episode of “Ask Angelica”!
On Friday, October 30, Angge welcomed her “That Thing Called Tadhana” co-star JM and their director Tonet on her digital talk show. Joined by Kean Cipriano and Via Antonio — the happy bunch talked about dealing with the past, and what to do during awkward reunions.
As they looked back on their own past to give advice on other people's present, we found out little known details about Angge, JM, and Direk Tonet's lives.
1. Direk Tonet and Direk Dan’s heated argument in Europe
Direk Tonet and her fiancé, Direk Dan Villegas, once traveled to Europe and there, had a huge fight.
The “Alone Together” director shared, “Maliit na bagay lang naman ‘yung nagawa ko. ‘Yung pera namin, nanakaw.”
“Kasi cash, nahulog ko siya habang naglalakad kami. Buti na lang, mabuti ang loob noong nakapulot, so binalik niya sa amin.”
She continued, “‘Yung pangalawa, sa Metro. Nanakaw eh. So, wala na kaming pera. May confrontation scene kami doon, hindi na namin ginalang ang Paris. Sa ilalim ng Eiffel Tower, may mga naghahalikan, kami nag-aaway kami. Wala kaming pinipili talaga na [lugar]. Pero okay naman, ‘di ko naman nire-regret ‘yun kasi nandoon pa rin naman kami.”
2. JM’s new “happy face” tattoo
A little birdie told Angge that “U-Turn” star JM had a brand new tattoo. When the group asked JM to show it, walang warning, walang anything, JM pulled his pants down and showed the happy face tattoo on his butt! 🙈
3. JM’s most “hated” project
When asked if he has ever hated a project he was part of, JM shared a story about a sketchy incident with a producer.
“May nandaya sa aking isang producer na gawin ang isang proyekto na medyo sensitive ‘yung scenes. So inuna niya ‘yung sensitive scenes pero hindi niya tinapos ‘yung pelikula,” he said.
Angelica then remarked, “Baka naman nabudol ka lang rin, hindi sila taga-industriya? Baka sa porn (laughs).”
4. Direk Tonet looks back on ‘You’re My Boss’
The blockbuster director is happy with all the projects she’s done, but there’s one film she wishes she could have done a better job on.
She shared, “Siguro ‘yung sana mas may nabigay pa ako, ‘yung first film ko sa Star Cinema, ‘yung ‘You’re My Boss.’ Looking back, hindi naging wise ‘yung mga ibang desisyon ko. Basta sa processes ko as director. ‘Yun nga, kasi bagets pa ako.”
5. Angge, JM, and Direk Tonet's favorite co-workers
Direk Tonet expressed her appreciation for Angelica's bright attitude on set, saying, “Si Angge, sobrang saya talaga kasama sa set. Kapag hindi pa nagte-take, sobrang daldal niya. Na kinakabahan ako, na kapag drama ‘yung kukunan, feeling ko hindi niya makakaya kasi sobrang saya niya, pero ‘pag sumalang na, ‘Ay, iba rin ‘to si bakla.’”
JM said it’s always a pleasure working with Joey Marquez. He said, “Masaya kasama. Parang positive force siya talaga.”
Meanwhile, Angge said, "Ako masasabi ko, sa mga katrabaho, si Z (Zanjoe Marudo).”
