After his first time as leading man to Bea Alonzo in She's the One, Enrique Gil admitted he was really nervous when they shot kissing scenes for the movie. “Nag-mouthwash ako ng solid (laughs) Hindi joke lang. Ako nung una kinakabahan talaga ako sobra. As in sobra. At saka yung mga eksena namin ako pa yung pinapawisan sa ibang eksena namin tapos si Bea wala lang. Basta ayun. Pero okay naman nagawa naman namin lahat yung mga ganun. Napakagaling ni Bea, artistang artista,” he said.
Enrique, or Quen, said he did not expect them to have kissing scenes when he accepted the project. “Nung una sinabi na walang kissing scene tapos nung nag-shu-shoot na kami biglang binago sabi may kissing scene na. Hindi ko alam yung pakiramdam ko nun eh, hindi ko ma-explain. Ewan ko, parang gusto ko magawa ko lang ng maayos yung naiisip ko, ayun,” he recalled.
When asked if he ever had a crush on his She's The One leading lady, Enrique admitted it was hard not to be attracted to Bea. “Oo naman. Okay na yun. Sasabihin ko talaga na sobrang bait ni Bea, sobrang maalaga. So sa sobrang bait na tao sinong hindi ma-i-in love sa napakagada at napakabait na tao? Yun lang. Siyempre nakakadala yung eksena pag maganda so dapat madala ka talaga. Siyempre nailang ako kasi first kissing scene ko na ganung level, yung solid na kiss so tense talaga, kahit sino namang gagawa ng una talaga ma-te-tense. Wala, na-te-tense lang talaga ako, yun lang,” he said.
At 21 years old, Quen is being groomed as one of ABS-CBN's top leading men. “Siyempre sobrang saya. Never ko ma-imagine na makasama ko sa pelikula si Dingdong (Dantes) at saka si Bea so nung sinabi pa lang sa akin, before there was excitement it was really pressure talaga. Kasi kailangan ibigay mo rin, I don't know, sobrang saya ko lang. I just got to do what I got to do,” he shared.
Just like his character David in the movie, Quen admitted it is not impossible for him to fall for an older woman. “Oo, I mean para sa akin kung mahal mo talaga ang isang tao na hindi mo mapigilan, siguro puwede oo naman. Nothing is impossible naman. Pag may something, may something talaga,” he admitted.
