Angelica Panganiban describes Kris Aquino as a very loyal friend


121211-angelp-main.jpgThird-time Best Comedy Actress winner Angelica Panganiban was initially recognized in the field of comedy with her incredible impersonation of Queen of All Media Kris Aquino. But she never expected that they'd be good friends as they worked together for the first time in Star Cinema's official Metro Manila Film Fest entry, Segunda Mano.  "Super tight [na kami]. Nakakatuwa. Sabi ko nga, ang sarap ng feeling na nakilala mo siya bilang tao, hindi yung bilang Kris Aquino na kapatid ng presidente [ng Pilipinas], anak ng isang hero, [at] hindi lang yung Kris na sikat na sikat," she said in her live interview with The Buzz, Sunday, December 11.
 
Asked what she loves most about Kris, Angelica shared that she really felt the actress-host's sincerity and concern towards her. "Kaibigan talaga siya. Ang loyal niya. Tsaka kapag nagkwento siya ang dami niyang opinyon. Siguro more on ate [yung tingin ko sa kanya]. Nilu-look up ko siya bilang matandang kapatid kasi ganon siya mag-advice. Tapos sobra siyang strict. Tsini-check niya kung, 'nakapagpa-foot spa ka na?' Umaabot na kami sa ganon."
 
Instead of being pressured with their upcoming movie, Angelica related that shooting Segunda Mano with Kris was more of a bonding time for them. "Masaya, para kaming 'di nagwo-work. Tsikahan lang kami ng tsikahan. Hindi ko nga naramdaman na gumawa kami ng movie. Para lang kaming nag-hangout." She added that Kris was very disciplined though when it comes to work. As it is, the Queen of All Media is known for being punctual and a stickler for time. "Masaya kasi ayaw niyang napupuyat. So ang bilis bilis ng work namin. Kapag 12 midnight na, [magaaya na siya] 'Tara na... Dali na gusto ko na umuwi.' So happy ako, sabi ko, 'Oo nga...'"
 
As for Angelica, she admitted that she has few girl friends and is very loyal to the people close to her as well. "Konti lang yung mga friends ko na babae. Kung hindi babae o kaya babaeng bakla. Kasi boyish ako siguro talaga. Minsan naaartehan ako sa mga babae, masyadong pa-sweet. Gusto ko masaya lang, chill lang."
 
Although Angelica often gets caught up with intrigues, many of her friends like John Prats, Pokwang and Melai Cantiveros can attest to the goodness of her heart. To which she simply replied, "Siguro kasi hindi ako madamot sa kaibigan. Kung anong nararamdaman ko gusto ko nararamdaman nila. Gusto ko kung anong happiness at blessing na meron ako, gusto ko pare-parehas kaming meron para sabay-sabay yung happiness."
 
Together with Kris Aquino and Dingdong Dantes, catch Angelica Panganiban on Segunda Mano, showing in theaters on December 25.
