Can Toni Gonzaga beat Sarah Geronimos box office team-up with John Lloyd Cruz?


After the box office success of My Amnesia Girl, a lot of people are saying that John Lloyd Cruz'rsquo;s team-up with Toni Gonzaga is now comparable to his previous team-up with Sarah Geronimo. But Toni refused to dwell on such reports, saying that she'rsquo;s not out to compete with any of John Lloyd'rsquo;s leading ladies. "Hindi natin iniisip yung competition kasi kung ano man narating ni Lloydy kasama ibang ka-partner niya like Sarah and Bea (Alonzo), nirerespeto ko yun. Iba naman talaga yung mga achievements nila. So masaya lang ako na pinagbigyan ako ni Lord na makatrabaho si John Lloyd at ma-experience yung ganitong klaseng blessings," said the actress-TV host in an interview with Push.com.ph.

Although she'rsquo;s really flattered that many of her fans are hoping that she'rsquo;d be the next Box Office Queen, Toni said that she'rsquo;d rather not expect too much at this point in time. "Ayoko muna isipin yun kasi baka 'lsquo;di naman mangyari. Basta masaya lang ako sa reception ng tao. Iwanan na muna natin sa ganon. Saka na natin isipin 'lsquo;yan kasi kung kanino naman talaga 'lsquo;yan, para sa kanya 'rsquo;yan. Siyempre nakaka-overwhelm lang na [nagrerequest na sila agad ng part 2 nung premiere night] dahil wala naman kaming history ni Lloydy na pinagsamahan. Tignan natin kasi hindi pa naman tapos yung showing."

When asked about her family'rsquo;s reaction to My Amnesia Girl, Toni admitted that they were surprised to see a bit of her daring side in the movie. "Siyempre yung parents ko sila yung na-shock sa pelikula kasi maraming bagay dito sa na unang beses ko lang ginawa. Sa mga nakapanood ng pelikula alam nila kung anong sinasabi ko. Wala naman pong love scene. Wholesome pa rin naman. It'rsquo;s just that bilang isang actress hindi naman pwedeng pare-pareho yung ginagawa mo. Naiba lang ng konti. Mas nag-mature lang ng konti pero walang hubarang naganap," she added with a laugh. 'nbsp;

Even her boyfriend Paul Soriano was equally wowed by her successful performance in the movie. "Nakakatawa nga kasi kwento niya sa akin, mas nag-react daw tao sa paligid niya kasi parang nakilala siya nung pinanood niya yung My Amnesia Girl sa sinehan. Hindi siya maka-react kasi tinitignan siya e. Binili pa man din niya yung buong row para hindi siya mapansin kung sakaling mag-react or magulat siya. Pero sabi naman niya, so far yun daw ang best na ginawa kong pelikula. Wow. Bias naman yung isa (laughs)! Siyempre katrabaho'nbsp; ko si John Lloyd. Kapag mahusay naman talaga yung katrabaho mo, magiging mahusay ka din kasi pressured ka na galingan."
