Contrary to previous reports, Heart Evangelista claims that she tried her best to be part of 'Ang Tanging Ina Niyong Lahat: Last Na 'To.'
In an interview with Push.com.ph, Heart Evangelista claimed that she really tried her best to be part of the movie Ang Tanging Ina Niyong Lahat: Last Na 'lsquo;To. It was supposed to be a big reunion for Ai-Ai de las Alas'rsquo;s onscreen brood of twelve and Heart was the only one who didn'rsquo;t make it. Rumor has it that she was removed from the cast after failing to show up for the first shooting day.'nbsp; "Yes, actually I called. I was supposed to [go], mahahabol pa namin. But Roxy (Liquigan, Star Cinema executive) and I had a talk. I was leaving for Bellaroca Island Resort in Marinduque (for the wedding of the sister of her boyfriend Daniel Matsunaga) and also I had to start working on a soap so yung last shooting day nila, hindi ako aabot. But I'rsquo;ve tried, so yun," said Heart who showed up at the launch of Caffe Ti Amo at Greenbelt 5 last December 1.
Heart also clarified that it wasn'rsquo;t as if she turned down the offer from the get go. "Not me. Maybe there was a problem with the shooting schedule or something. But I was such a fan of the movie. I tried to be here a day earlier for the shoot. So from my end, wala naman akong nakitang pagkukulang. Nagkaroon lang siguro ng [miscommunication] or something." As a matter of fact, she expressed her desire to support the movie should Star Cinema invite her to the premiere night. "If they invite me, I will go."
When asked if she misses her former Ang Tanging Ina family, Heart stressed that she would always treasure the good times they had back when she was still a Kapamilya star. "I miss everybody from ABS-CBN. I grew up there and that was like my old university. So of course I was sad when I didn'rsquo;t make it in the movie. Pero I guess there'rsquo;s a reason for everything," she stated.
