Marian Rivera shares the secret to her relationship with Dingdong Dantes


101513-Marian_Main.jpgAfter producing her first movie project Kung Fu Divas, Marian Rivera admitted she was very proud of doing her own stunts for the action-comedy film. “Ito ata yung kauna-unahang epic na comedy adventure na ganito tapos kasama ko pa ang reyna ng comedy so ano pa ba ang hahanapin niyo? Sa action scenes may harness kami dito at hindi naging madali sa amin gawin ito kasi at the same time artista kami at nag-train kami ni Ate Ai-Ai (De las Alas) ng halos tatlong buwan so talagang kinarir naming yung mga fight scene namin para hindi alangan yung mga porma namin. Para mukha talag kaming nag-ku-kung fu at yun ang talagang sinigurado sa amin ni direk,” she said.

When she was offered to produce the project, Marian said she had faith in the script. “Kasi malaki tiwala ko sa pelikula at palagi ko sinasabi na nakaka-proud. Pag napanuod niyo yung buong pelikula sa cinema ma-a-amaze kayo kasi iisipin niyo nakaka-proud naman ang Pinoy, nagagawa na pala ito ngayon. Masasabi kong isa ito sa mapagmamalaki kong pelikulang nagawa ko,” she said.

Marian said she did not always rely on a stunt double to do her scenes even when she was tired from other showbiz commitments during the making of the film. “Hindi naman. Siguro pag kaya naman o hindi naman masyado stress, okay siya. Pero kapag halos everyday naman halo yung trabaho tapos yung tulog mo dalawang oras. Siyempre sa pag-aartista hindi mo naman control yung oras mo kung kelan yung call time mo or kung kelan ka matatapos so kahit umidlip ka sa taping, iidlip,” she said.

After getting positive feedback, Marian said she would definitely consider doing another movie with Star Cinema. “Siguro oo, why not,” she said. When asked if she would consider producing a movie with boyfriend Dingdong Dantes, Marian said it was not impossible. “Hindi ko masasagot yan. Pag kumita ito baka hindi ako madala (Laughs). To be honest, yung experience ko bilang producer dito iba rin pala. Kasi bilang artista ibibigay ko yung 100% ko, makikisama ka, makikitungo ka sa mga bagay bagay. Pero kapag producer ka pala, minsan may mga idadagdag ka na tipong may binibigay ka pa sa trabaho mo na more pa na kaya mong ibigay na kahit siguro huling hininga mo ibibigay mo kasi producer ka,” she shared.

After surviving a lot of intrigues in showbiz throughout the years, Marian shared why her relationship with one of showbiz's most eligible bachelors has remained strong all this time. “Kami kasi ni Dong hindi ko alam kung paano ipaliwanag at ilatag lahat sa inyo, may kanya-kanya pa rin. Kami as a couple oo pero may kanya-kanyang trabaho kami eh. Malaki yung tiwala naminsa bawat isa na kung ano yung gusto naming gawin, susuportahan namin ang bawat isa. Hindi ibig sabihin na dinidiktahan namin ang bawat isa kung ano ang gagawin namin. Itong pelikulang ito, diretso sa amin si direk, kinausap ako at ako rin mismo ang nag-decide na gagawin ko ito, napakagandang pelikula. After nun for example nag-lunch kami together, in-open up ko sa kanya na may in-offer sa akin na ganitong pelikula, kinuha ko. Ganun ang relationship na meron kaming dalawa na mahirap ipaliwanag sa ibang tao kasi nasa showbiz kami. So ganung klaseng relationship ang meron kami at ang importante sa akin, may respeto kami sa bawat isa, may kanya-kanyang career. Kasi minsan mahirap matali na Marian and Dingdong together, siyempre kanya kanya rin,” she explained.
