Director Cathy Garcia-Molina and Gerald Anderson had their first time working together in their newest Star Cinema romantic comedy movie ‘My Perfect You’.
Direk Cathy admitted during the movie’s presscon on Saturday, March 10, that she wasn’t immediately impressed with Gerald.
It was then at the 2017 film ‘Can We Still Be Friends’ that Direk Cathy started noticing Gerald’s acting.
“Siyempre wala akong alam kung anong acting capabilities nito, it’s been a while. Si Gerald naman I’ve watched his films and my favorite was yung the one with Arci Muñoz. The first time na kinongratulate ko siya dun kasi hindi ko siya gusto umarte. So dun ang start namin,” she said.
[Of course I don’t know anything about his acting capabilities, it’s been a while. I’ve watched Gerald’s films and my favorite was the one with Arci Muñoz. It was the first time that I congratulated him because I don’t like his acting. So that’s the start for us.]
But halfway of filming ‘My Perfect You’, direk Cathy admitted that she was surprised by Gerald’s efforts for the film.
“Grabe ang effort niya, naging double. So yung ending take one. Tapos habang nanunuod ako nakita ko si John Lloyd. I think it’s a sincere performance that I only get from a John Lloyd Cruz. In fairness naman hindi ko alam kung good thing or bad thing sa kanya yun but to me it means I saw a sincere performance. And to me yun na yun,” she added.
[His efforts were doubled. So it was a take one in the end. And then while I was watching, I saw John Lloyd. I think it’s a sincere performance that I only get from a John Lloyd Cruz. In fairness, I don’t know if its a good thing or a bad thing for him, but for me it means I saw a sincere performance. And for me, that’s it.]
