Cristine Reyes says she doesn't mind sharing the title of box office queen with Anne Curtis


103011-cristine_main.jpgNow that the Star Cinema movie No Other Woman has been hailed as the highest-grossing Filipino film of all time, it won’t be a far cry to deduce that the film’s stars are shoo-ins for this year’s box office queen and king titles. Although it looks like she may have to share the title with her female co-star, Cristine Reyes said she would rather focus on feeling blessed that she would even be given recognition for her role as the doting wife Charmaine in No Other Woman and it is not an issue for her if she has to share the title with Anne Curtis.

Hindi ko naman kini-claim. Bahala na ang tao at si Lord magbigay nun sa akin. Hindi ko naman ini-expect eh. Kumbaga bigla na lang kaming lahat nagulat na nag-hit yung No Other Woman so thankful kami. Siyempre kung dalawa kami, dapat dalawang award yun. Kasi iniisip ko, okay lang yun kesa sa wala. At least meron akong masasabi sa pagtanda ko na at one time naging highest grossing film ako ‘di ba? Masasabi ko yun pag nagkaroon ako ng mga apo-apo. Magiging proud ako dun kasi hindi lahat nagkakaroon nun. Actually sabi ko nga hindi ako nanghihinayang kung magkaroon man or wala. Okay na okay lang sa akin na may ka-share kesa sa wala,” she admitted.

In fact, the actress is keeping her expectations in check just in case the title ends up with someone else. “Kung meron man, okay lang yun. Ganun talaga. Ayoko naman kasi nag-e-expect so if ever hindi kami okay lang din kasi hindi naman ako nag-expect. Okay lang yun kasi kumbaga na-achieve na namin yung ganito, dahil wala pa naman nakaka-achieve ng ganito. Okay na ako dun,” she added.

Because of the movie’s success, Cristine reportedly received a big bonus even before No Other Woman hit the P200M mark in ticket sales. “Nasa bangko pa yun. Nagtitipid ako eh. May pinag-iipunan lang. Secret. Malalaman niyo na lang. Malapit na,” she said.

The pretty mestiza also has another reason to be happy because her drama series Reputasyon has been extended until next year because of public demand. “Siguro maganda yung story namin at magagaling yung mga kasama ko and nakikita nila na maganda yung Reputasyon. Abangan nila siyempre yung mangyayari sa love story namin ni Henry, kung pipiliin niya ba ang kanyang kapatid na si Catherine or ang mahal niya na si Agnes. At abangan niyo yung kakalabasan sa family ko. Ang Reputasyon kasi ang story niya about sa family. Ano mas pipiliin mo, yung love or family? Meron pang ibang papasok pero wala pa sa ngayon. Kasi nakita ko sa bagong script namin na may mga bagong characters,” she shared.

Cristine also believed that her relationship with real-life sweetheart Rayver Cruz as a possible reason for the show being more effective. “Siguro part na rin yun, yung real-life may chemistry kami ni Rayver. Pero sinabi ko nga yung collaboration ng artists and director, yun talaga yung kung bakit naging successful yung show. Nagtutulungan kayo,” she said.

Cristine said that despite all the success she is reaping, she does not feel any added pressure when it comes to work. “Hindi siya pressure kasi para sa akin mas masaya yun dahil ibig sabihin tinangkilik yung show mo kaya i-e-extend,” she concluded.
