Do Janine Gutierrez and Lovi Poe find each other attractive just like their respective onscreen characters Harry and Luna in the upcoming queer romance series “Sleep With Me”?
During the show’s media conference held last August 4, Janine and Lovi revealed the qualities they find “crushable” in each other and got real about how they would feel if someone of the same sex would potentially pursue them.
“Crush ng bayan naman talaga si Lovi ever since,” Janine spoke fondly of her co-star. “I mean, when you say Lovi Poe, ‘di ba? Alam niyo na.”
For her part, Lovi gushed over Janine’s good looks and great personality: “Si Janine, she’s very beautiful and articulate. ‘Yung personality more than anything talaga.”
“‘Pag nakausap mo ‘yung isang tao tapos ‘yung conversation niyo talaga, tuloy tuloy. I think more than how Janine looks like, she’s extremely beautiful,” she added.
Lovi also stressed that a top quality she finds attractive in a person is their “good energy.”
“Crushworthy, talagang I think when you’re a good person, nararamdaman ‘yun ng ibang tao. Your energy speaks for itself. You just admire people who have good energy,” she explained.
As for being courted by someone of the same sex, Janine and Lovi gave their own insights as women who identify as straight in real life and play queer characters in the series.
“I don’t think anything’s wrong with that. If you like someone, you like someone. Love is love. You don’t have to categorize,” Lovi asserted.
“At the end of the day, if that person uplifts you, makes you happy, and it’s not a toxic relationship. If you become a better person because of your partner, then that’s the right person,” she added.
Meanwhile, Janine answered, “After seeing the relationship of Harry and Luna and what they’ve been through, if I met Luna in real life, my gosh… who’s to say, ‘di ba? If you’re given the chance at a happy ending, why not?”
Written and directed by Samantha Lee, "Sleep With Me” follows the story of Harry (Janine), a radio show host who offers relationship advice on her late-night show, and Luna (Lovi), a woman who suffers from a sleeping disorder.
Jointly produced by Dreamscape Entertainment, Project 8 corner San Joaquin Projects, and iWantTFC, the series is set to premiere on iWantTFC this coming August 15.
