John Lloyd Cruz and Toni Gonzaga talk about their eagerness to make their movie extra special.
During the premiere night of My Amnesia Girl, John Lloyd Cruz and Toni Gonzaga surprised many of their fans not only with their unique chemistry but also the efforts that they'rsquo;ve given to make the movie a huge hit. For instance, it'rsquo;s a first for Toni to do a lot of kissing scenes on screen. It was quite unexpected given her reservations to go daring in her previous projects. "Malaking factor kasi na malaki ang tiwala ko kay Direk Cathy (Garcia-Molina) at kay John Lloyd (Cruz). Alam kong napaka-concerned niya at napakagentleman. Alam ko naman na magiging maayos ang lahat at hindi siya sagad dun sa alam mong 'lsquo;di mo kayang gawin. Nakayanan ko naman," said Toni in an interview with Push.com.ph.
John Lloyd on the other hand made the audience laugh out loud when he went shirtless and posed with a group of guys with six-pack abs just to please Toni'rsquo;s character in the story. It was meant to provide comic relief and he was glad that it worked with the audience. "Hindi naman talaga issue sa akin yung maghubad at magpakita ng katawan as long as nasa konteksto ng pelikula. Clearly, yung character ko dito hindi naman siya pine-peg as lalaking maganda ang katawan. Yung experience namin with the audience napaka-rare kasi dun sa mga pagkakataon na ine-expect namin na tatawa sila at tatahimik, nangyari. So nakakatuwa kasi nakuha nila yung gusto naming iparamdam sa kanila."
Moviegoers are in for a surprise because My Amnesia Girl is far from the Hollywood movie 50 First Dates as other people were led to believe based on the trailers alone. On the contrary, it is a story about heartbreak and giving true love a chance the second and third time around. "Kami mismo ni Toni bitin na bitin kami sa panahon na ibinigay sa amin para masabi sa lahat na panoorin yung pelikula. Parang nagkulang kami sa part na yun dahil na rin sa tight schedule ng shooting and all. Kaya sana inaasahan ko base sa mga nanood ng premiere night, I hope they can tell their friends and families na panoorin ang My Amnesia Girl," he added.
My Amnesia Girl is now showing in theaters nationwide.
