Kris Aquino talks about ex-husband James Yaps appearance in Dalaw


Kris Aquino revealed through her Twitter account that she had convinced her ex-husband, professional basketball player James Yap to make an appearance in her upcoming movie Dalaw.'nbsp; In the press conference of the said movie, a Star Cinema entry in the Metro Manila Film Festival, Kris explained that James will serve as a body double of her leading man Diether Ocampo, who can'rsquo;t do the scene because he is in Australia for a concert tour.'nbsp;'nbsp; "Kailangan nang masara 'lsquo;yung eksena by tomorrow night.'nbsp; The deadline for submission of the movie is sa Monday.'nbsp; We needed somebody with a good physique.'nbsp; In all fairness naman sa akin konti lang ang friends kong lalaki na hunky.'nbsp; E 'lsquo;di my ex-husband na lang.'nbsp; Kaya maraming salamat sa kanya.'nbsp; What you will see in the movie is front ko, then 'lsquo;yung back side niya, left shoulder and arm.'nbsp; Malalaman ninyong, 'lsquo;Ay!'nbsp; 'lsquo;Yan si James Yap!'rsquo;"

Kris talked about how she didn'rsquo;t have a hard time convincing James to be a body double for Diether. "Diether is very fit.'nbsp; Nakausap ko si James na, 'lsquo;I need a favor.'nbsp; Alam ko na Wednesday may game ka, pwede ka bang mahiram sa gabi?'rsquo;'nbsp; Sabi niya, 'lsquo;Miss mo na ko, no?!'rsquo; Sabi ko naman, 'lsquo;Likod mo lang ang hihiramin!'rsquo;'nbsp; Ha ha ha!'nbsp; Kailangan kasi broad ang shoulders, left arm ang makikita so kailangan developed 'lsquo;yung arm.'nbsp; Tapos 'lsquo;yung likod kailangan lean, alam mo na nagwo-work out."

Having been married, Kris figured James is just the right guy with whom she can comfortably do the slightly intimate scene in Dalaw.'nbsp; "Mahirap kasi kayakap ko siya dapat sa eksena.'nbsp; Sabi ko naman, 'lsquo;I'rsquo;m sure naman na ayaw mong kung sino-sino lang ang kayakap ng ex-wife mo.'nbsp; So pumayag ka na na ikaw ang kayakap!'rsquo;'nbsp; Ishu-shoot namin sa Wednesday.'nbsp; Manonood si Bimby (their son) sa game niya.'nbsp; Tamang tama after that dadalhin niya si Bimby sa akin sa Bulacan (where the location is).'nbsp; So wala siyang kawala!"

Kris and James'rsquo;s five year marriage had many ups and downs that made headlines, and until early this year, the actress-TV host announced that she is filing an annulment of her marriage to the basketball star.'nbsp; The annulment case is still being reviewed by the court and it had sent out a gag order preventing Kris and James from discussing the case with the media.'nbsp; But very far from the image of a squabbling ex-couple, Kris said she and James are very much in good terms now.'nbsp; "You go through stages sa hiwalayan.'nbsp; There'rsquo;s anger, resentment, then peace for a while, and you read the papers, you read what he filed, you read what you filed, mag
