Robin Padilla admits that he enjoyed his intimate scenes with Kris Aquino and Anne Curtis; but insists that his wife Mariel Rodriguez has nothing to worry about.
Robin Padilla maintained that he will not give his wife Mariel Rodriguez a reason to feel jealous towards his leading lady Kris Aquino. As it is, Mariel recently revealed that Kris has never invited Robin inside her trailer during on-location tapings out of respect for her. “Eh parang magkapatid yung dalawang yun. Siguro silang dalawa ang nagkakaintindihan dun. Pero para sa akin , ke paakyatin ako ni
Kris dun o hindi, wala naman akong gagawing hokus pokus. Ke ako pa magmaneho nun o sa bahay niya ako matulog, wala. Ang bait ko,
” exclaimed the dashing actor during his solo press con for Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw
held last Thursday, January 10.
When asked how it feels like working with Kris again, Robin revealed that the actress/host is quite the perfectionist on the set of their teleserye. “Nakakatakot katrabaho si Kris. Nasa 200 porsiyento ang pagiging perfectionist niya. Palagi kaming naka-attention. Pag nagsalita na si Ms. Kris kailangan ready kami. Totoo yun. Kasi lahat naman ng sinasabi ni Kris pinagiisipan niya mabuti. Hindi naman siya hihirit ng isang bagay na wala siyang katwiran.”
But he further shared that she has no restrictions when it comes to their kissing scenes. “Yung aming love scene masyado kong na-enjoy. Wala naman siyang hininging bawal to, bawal yun. Isang beses lang ’yan nag-request. Huwag ko raw siya ibagsak ’pag buhat ko siya. May eksenang inatake siya, kailangan ko siya buhatin. Siyempre nung rehearsal hindi pa namin maipakita ni Direk. Medyo [nagba-balance pa ako]. Pero nung take okay na.”
Robin was also all praises for their co-star Anne Curtis whom he finds really attractive. The few local press who were present at the event teased the actor who is notorious for getting romantically involved with his leading ladies in the past. But Robin was quick to say that he has long since mastered self-control when it comes to these matters. “Mabigat din sa ibang usapin (pertaining to Anne). Kailangan lang matindi ang pagpipigil mo sa sarili. Kailangan bumabalik ka lagi sa realidad. Hindi ka na papatulan ng mga batang ito.”
He further cited an instance wherein he couldn’t stay mad at Anne who looked so good during one of their scenes together. “Meron isang eksena, nasa prisinto kami, antagal naming hindi nagkita ni Anne. Lapit ako kay Direk, 'Matagal kong ’di nakita si Ruth (Anne’s role in the soap). Ano ba ito Direk, ngingiti ba ako sa kanya?’ '[Expletive] galit ka sa kanya.' 'Ah okay.' May ganong klase. Kasi ang ganda ni Anne e, imposibleng ’di ka mapapangiti. Kailangan ka ibalik sa realidad ng director,” he related in between laughs.
It was also Robin who pointed out that the first time he worked with Anne was when the actress was only 12 or 13 years old. “Kasi si Anne kalalabas ko ng kulungan [nung nakatrabaho ko siya], bata pa si Anne. Sino ba love team niya nun (Chubby del Rosario)? Yun ang unang pelikula ko. Tulak Ng Bibig Kabig ng Dibdib (1998). Yung parang kapatid siya ni Maricel (Soriano) nun. Ang bata pa niya nun. Eh ngayon, ’pag nakita mo siya marami ka na masyadong maglalaro sa isip mo. Akin na lang yun [kung ano yun].”
But despite his naughty remarks, Robin reiterated that he knows his boundaries when it comes to his job. He said he belives that it’s okay to feel a certain attraction towards a leading lady for him to bring out the right emotions during their scenes together. “Ay wala [dapat ika-worry si Mariel]. Mabait ako e. Walang dapat pagselosan si Mariel. Kasi ‘pag di mo nilagyan ng ganong klaseng pagiisip, wala ka mailalabas na emosyon sa mata mo. Isipin mo lang lagi kagandahan nila, kabanguhan nila. Hindi mo pwedeng hindi maamoy may mga eksenang malalapit,” he finally stated.
Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw premieres on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida on January 21 at 9 pm.
