- Director Cathy Garcia-Molina shared her honest thoughts on Gerald Anderson
- She revealed that she did not find him handsome
- The director also admitted that she used to not have an appreciation for his acting ability
Cathy Garcia-Molina did not hold back in sharing what he thought of Gerald Anderson before working with him on “My Perfect You.”
KAMI learned that the director did not find Gerald physically attractive.
According to the report from PUSH, she also was not impressed by the actor’s acting skills.
“I have always been honest to everyone. Sa sobrang pagiging honest minsan nakaka-offend na ako.
“But then, I talked to my stars and they know from the very start, sabi ko kay Gerald, ‘Ge, alam mo naman na hindi ako naga-guwapuhan sa ‘yo.’
“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…”
According to Cathy, the reason she shared her honest thoughts on Gerald was in order to bring out the best in him.
“Si Gerald sobra tinapak-tapakan ko ang ego ng taong ito. Wala ng preno ang bibig ko.
“All for one intention, I want to bring out who Gerald really is or maybe what else he can give. And siyempre lalake, ang hirap ng ego, it’s getting in the way.
“But I admire him for allowing me na tapakan siya at rendahan. Finally, may isang sequence na sabi ko, ‘Oy, pogi ka na dun!’ Partida ito pa yung gulo gulo buhok niya.”
She added that she saw glimpses of acclaimed actor John Lloyd Cruz in his performance.
“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…
“Sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Pag ikaw bumalik pa sa acting mong ewan, lagot ka sa akin!”
“My Perfect You” opens nationwide on March 14, Wednesday.
The movie also stars Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach.
Direk Cathy has announced that she will soon be retiring from directing movies.
