Following the success of the phenomenal love team’s first solo movie, Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza expressed their willingness to work with Kris Aquino.
In an interview with Pep.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), the pair was quick to respond with a “Why not?” and “Oo naman po,” when asked if they were open to have a project with the Queen of All Media.
It was only recently when Aquino took to Instagram her praises for AlDub’s ‘Imagine Me And You’ after seeing it on the big screen when she checked the new branch of her fast food business as well at Eastwood Mall in Quezon City.
According to the TV host and actress, the movie urged her to fly to Italy where it was filmed. She also commended Director Michael Tuviera and DOP Shayne Sarte for a job well done. Aquino claimed how one could feel Richards’ kind heart even through the movie, while Mendoza’s portrayal of Gara was ‘light and effortless.’ Despite Jasmine Curtis-Smith’s minimal scenes, she still managed to deliver her role as Aquino quipped of how she ‘empathized’ with her character.
Richards and Mendoza was grateful for Aquino’s good feedback on their movie, adding how it was an honor for them to have their film watched by the TV host.
Even prior to the blockbuster hit, Aquino has been vocal of her support to the tandem. In a guest appearance on the July 1 episode of Marian Rivera’s talk show, ‘Yan Ang Morning,’ Aquino was asked regarding the duo – to which she immediately replied that she loves them.
She also recalled her first meeting with Richards who approached her when she was at the ‘Eat Bulaga’ studio to promote ‘My Little Bossings’ back in 2013. The pambansang bae was surprised that Aquino knew him, which prompted for the actress to explain that he has already been a household name. On the other hand, Aquino first met Mendoza in an LBC event when the latter was still dubsmashing her.
Moreover, Aquino was happy for their success and said that “competition makes everybody strive harder.”
