Vice Ganda shares why his role in 'This Guy's In Love With You, Mare' hits too close to home


100212-vice_main.jpgAs the October 10 playdate nears for his newest Star Cinema comedy This Guy’s In Love With You, Mare, Vice Ganda admitted he is excited to see the film on the big screen already. “Personally hindi ako nakaramdam ng anumang stress o paghihirap sa pagtratrabaho kasama sila kasi nga hindi trabaho, harutan lang. Harutan lang kami ng harutan at saka itong pelikulang ito, ito yung nagpatagpo sa amin ulit ni Toni Gonzaga eh. Kasi matalik kong kaibigan si Toni pero hindi kami nagkikita dahil ang dami niyang ginagawa, ang dami ko ring ginagawa. Dito nagkaroon kami ng dahilan para magkita T-Th-S. Si Luis Manzano naman masarap pa rin kasama kasi mahilig siyang maghubad sa dressing room, hubad siya ng hubad kahit sa mga pagkakataong hindi naman kinakailangan kaya masaya rin ang shoot (laughs),” he joked.

Even with the box-office success of his previous hits Petrang Kabayo and Praybeyt Benjamin, Vice said he would rather concentrate on providing good entertainment more than anything else. “Ako naman ever since I don’t pressure myself. I’ve never pressured myself to be a box-office star. I just pressure myself to be a great performer. You always claim it. I-claim mo na. Pag ako tinatanong kung malaki ba kikitain nito? Sabihin na natin na oo. Wala namang mawawala when you claim it at saka makapangyarihan kasi ang salita, yung mga iniisip mo at mga sinasabi mo kadalasan nagkakatotoo yan. Kaya let’s go for 400 million na, wala namang mawawala di ba? Wala naman tayong masasaktan pag sinabi natin yan di ba? Kasi tinanong nila ako dati kung hindi ba ako na-pe-pressure na ang susundan mo No Other Woman na dineclare na highest grossing Filipino movie of all time? Sabi ko, ‘Hindi po, kahit P20 million lang ang kitain ng Praybeyt Benjamin, masaya na ako.’ tapos hanggang that day na nagkatotoo, first day kumita siya ng 20-plus eh. Nadaan sa biro pero nagkatotoo,” he recalled.

In the movie, Vice Ganda plays the role of a jilted lover who plots to destroy the new relationship of his ex-boyfriend by pretending to woo the new girlfriend as a straight guy.

During the presscon for the movie, Vice admitted that some of the scenes he shot with Luis hit too close to home for him. “Sobrang relate, sobra. Sabi ko nga kay Direk, ‘Eto alam mong eksena ko ito sa totoong buhay, dinagdag mo dito.’ Ang eksena kasi boyfriend ko si Luis, nagkahiwalay kami. Hiniwalayan niya ako kasi nag-Born Again siya. Yun ang sinabi niya sa akin. Na nangyari na din sa akin sa totoong buhay. Meron akong boyfriend dati na nakipaghiwalay din kasi nag-Born Again. Eh hindi na ako nakipag-away. Paano ko kakakalbanin si Lord? Sabi ko, ‘Go! (laughs)” he recalled.

Now that the film is done, Vice said he hopes that fans will enjoy his antics in his newest movie. “Masaya lang kami. Hindi pressure, excited. Tagal na tagal ako sa October 10. Gusto ko ng mag-showing ito! Nung nalaman kong pinalabas na ang The Mistress, dun ako kinabahan dahil kung The Mistress na, ibig sabihin next na yung sa amin, parang ang bilis naman. Pero nung tapos na namin gawin yung pelikula, ang bagal naman, gusto ko na mag-October 10. Nakaka-proud itong pelikulang ito, kampante ako at saka ito yung pinakamaganda kong comedy film. Mas maganda ito di hamak sa Praybeyt Benjamin!” he claimed.
