Furthermore, Paolo said that their chemistry was there even if they did not have time to attend workshops together.
“It was very easy. Yen was very professional. The chemistry was very easy because during the first day pa lang, we were able to talk about what we want to happen in the movie.
“Yen was very open to suggestions. I was also very open to suggestions. Direk was very open to what we wanted to do together in the scenes.
“It was easy, considering that we didn’t have time for reading, we didn’t have time for any workshops. Kumbaga, I met Yen for the first time during the look test and then shooting followed.
“We both wanted the same thing for the film. It worked well,” Paolo shared.
This interview was published today by The Philippine Star days after his ex-girlfriend LJ Reyes revealed to Boy Abunda that she and Paolo broke up because the latter’s behavior changed for the worse, as reported by the Manila Bulletin.
Rappler also reported about LJ’s interview with Boy, particularly about the actress being the one to formally end her romance with Paolo, which contradicted Lolit Solis’s claim that the breakup was mutual.
Paolo Contis is a Filipino actor and comedian of Italian descent who appeared in his acting debut as a child actor in the ABS-CBN show "Ang TV". He was born on March 14, 1984. Contis is half-Italian (from his father) and half-Filipino (from his mother). He was a popular child actor where he already appeared in various movies during the mid-1990s. Despite being cast in the popular teleserye "Mara Clara", Contis was better known for being part of the primetime sitcom "Oki Doki Doc". He has won several awards, particularly at the PMPC Star Awards. His celebrity ex-girlfriends include Lian Paz and LJ Reyes.
LJ Reyes recently stunned netizens after she answered a question about what could end a good relationship. During one of the recent episodes of "Mars Pa More", LJ and Camille Prats were playing a game alongside Jelai Andres and Divine Aucina. Among the questions they received was if they ever made a huge mistake in the past which affected a relationship they had. According to LJ, she has not yet ruined a good relationship but said that perhaps her "mapilit" attitude could ruin a relationship.
Veteran columnist Lolit Solis, on the other hand, also aired her thoughts on the things that appear on the news regarding Paolo Contis and LJ Reyes. The veteran showbiz columnist stated that she really thought that LJ is "the one" for Paolo considering that they have been together for a long time now. Lolit then speculated what could have happened and why, and said that it's possible that the romance is gone.
