Although it was rumored that during the duration of last year's MMFF, good friends Vice Ganda and Kris Aquino had a gap because of the competition between their respective films Girl Boy Bakla Tomboy and My Little Bossings. In a recent episode of Kris TV, Kris reportedly apologized to Vice but the GGV host denied there was even anything to resolve. “Hindi ko naramdaman yun. Wala, walang nag-apologize sa aming dalawa. Siguro healthy competition kasi magkasama yung pelikula namin. Siguro siya nagtampo siya ng slight kasi niloko-loko ko siya sa Christmas special pero hindi din eh kasi nag-uusap pa rin kami ng regular eh,” he shares during his ABS-CBN contract-signing held last January 13.
Vice Ganda says that the issue was blown out of proportion because their films were competing against each other at the box-office and both of them we're hoping to be number one. “Siyempre kaya nagka-ganun kasi pareho naming kinarir yung pareho naming pelikula eh. Sobrang karir siya, sobrang karir ako. Yung panandalian na hindi muna namin naiisip yung friendship. Ang naiisip lang namin kailangan karirin namin yung pareho naming pelikula,” he admits. When asked how he feels about reports that at the closing of the MMFF box-office returns, his and Kris's movies were almost at the same figures, Vice chooses his words carefully but admits he is happy for his friend as well, “Ayokong mag-comment. Masaya tayong lahat! (laughs) Happy ako para sa kanila at para sa akin. Siya rin naman happy siya. ”
In fact, Vice Ganda shares that he and Kris were in touch during the holidays even she went abroad with Bimby and Josh. “Okay kami. Okay na okay ako. Kasi nag-usap pa rin kami. Kagabi magkausap kami. Sabi niya, 'Oy, congrats mag-ko-contract-signing ka na tapos ako naman susunod.' kaya lang kami hindi nakakapag-usap kasi umalis nga siya. Pero nung nandun siya sa London nag-te-text pa rin kami. Tinext nga niya ako, 'I just bought you a pair of Loubotins.' Sabi ko, 'Ay thank you!' tapos sabi niya, 'May gift ka ba sa akin?' (laughs). Sabi ko, 'Wala pa eh, ano bang gusto mo?' tapos hindi na siya sumagot. Sabi ko tuloy, 'Hindi ka na sumagot, siguro hindi mo na ibibigay sa akin gift ko kasi wala pa akong gift para sa iyo,' tapos tumawa siya. Sobrang okay kami,” he recalls.
For 2014, Vice says he looks forward to doing more film projects and tackling different characters so that he has something new to offer his loyal fans. “Of course I will be doing another movie. A movie or two this year pero hindi ko pa alam kung ano. Pero I want to offer something new to the public. Hindi ko alam kung film fest. Yung first movie parang hindi muna film fest. Ewan ko kung meron pa rin akong entry next year,” he shares.
