Cristine Reyes on working with Vic Sotto: 'Alagang-alaga niya ako sa set'


When Cristine Reyes heard Vic Sotto talking about her professionalism during the presscon of Ang Darling Kong Aswang, she was really grateful that someone of his stature would defend her from her critics. You would recall that she is often tagged as a pasaway actress but then Vic told the local media that Cristine is the type who goes to work even if she’s not feeling well. “Actually hindi ko alam na may ganong kwento si bossing. Sobrang natouch ako kasi siyempre coming from bossing (nalaman) ni’yo kung paano ako magtrabaho na hindi nakikita ng iba. At least ngayon merong taong nagtanggol sa akin na hindi naman talaga ako pasaway sa set, professional naman ako,” she happily stated.

Though she doesn’t demand special treatment from him, Cristine revealed that Vic had been very attentive as her leading man and producer of the said movie. “Alagang-alaga niya ako sa set. Siguro yung pinaka-natouch ako yung pinagtalupan niya ako ng hipon. Kasi lahat kumakain ako lang hindi. Tinanong niya ako kung bakit hindi ako kumakain. Sabi ko natatamad po ako magbalat ng hipon. So pinagbalat niya ako. Tapos may one time may mga maliliit na crab sa set (na doon ko lang nakita). Sabi niya kailangan mo itong itry. Ayoko talaga kasi kailangan kainin mo yung mismong shell. Yun pala kinakain talaga siya. So ginawa ni Bossing tinanggal niya yung mga paa-paa tapos ganon ulit pinagbalat niya ako tapos kinain ko. Spoiled ako in that sense. Para talaga akong prinsesa.”

Cristine further shared that even the rest of the cast and staff enjoyed having him around because he’s so easy to work with. “Totoo yung sinabi nila na kahit anong hirap ng ginagawa naming scenes, nawawala yung pagod namin kasi tawa kami ng tawa. Very down to earth kasi si Bossing, pati yung mga staff and crew lagi niya binibiro. Siya talaga yung nagpapasaya sa set. Kumabaga kahit umaga na at pagod na lahat, ‘pag humirit na si Bossing ng jokes niya, nabubuhayan lahat. Hindi siya talaga mahirap katrabaho,” she explained.

But when asked if it’s possible for her to fall for someone like Vic, Cristine explained that it wouldn’t be proper for her to answer the question because of his girlfriend Pia Guanio. “Parang ang awkward sagutin yung tanong na’ yan dahil unang-una may girlfriend Si Bossing and yung girlfriend niya ay si Ms. Pia Guanio na sobrang nirerespeto ko. Kapag nagkikita kami ni Ate Pia nag-uusap kami. So paano kung mabasa niya ‘to? Siyempre hindi naman magandang sagutin ko kasi baka mamaya kung anong isipin pa niya.”

Cristine refused to be linked to any intrigues now that things in her life are falling back into place again. And even though she doesn’t have a special someone to inspire her at the moment, the 20-year-old confessed that she remains optimistic just by looking at the tattoo in her left wrist. “Crucifix siya na may puso ko. Tapos yung mga arrow-arrow na ‘yan yung representatoon ng trials sa life ko. Tapos yung roses yun yung feminine side of me. Kasi everytime na nakikita ni’yo ako naka-smile ako. Pero pag-uwi ko sa bahay, meron din naman akong mga problemang hinaharap. Pero ‘pag nada-down ako, tinitignan ko lang yung tattoo ko. Ito yung nagpapatatag sa akin kasi pinapaalala nito na God is with me,” she beamed.
