Almost four years since a psychic predicted that he would get Kris Aquino pregnant, award-winning actor Coco Martin still couldn't help but laugh over the ridiculousness of its idea.
Apparently, Coco, during his live appearance on The Buzz on Sunday, he also heard about the fortune teller's claim some years ago.
"Actually kahit ako nun natatawa sabi ko nga 'yung respeto ko kay Ate Kris kasi parang kapatid ko na 'yan. And then siyempre nahihiya ako sa Aquino family na may ganong issue," he said.
But Coco just decided to brush off the issue since "sabi ko nga kanya kanya ng issue, kanya kanya ng pananaw sa trabaho."
Now that the prediction is behind them, as well as their former misunderstanding, Coco shared that he has actually grown closer with Kris while they were filming their Metro Manila Film Festival entry Feng Shui 2.
But such wasn't the case in the beginning. While their characters Joy and Lester were also initially aloof on the film, Coco shared that he was also distant from Kris during the first few days of filming.
"Hindi siyempre kasi marami na kaming pinagdaanan ni Ate Kris noong dati magkasama kami sa soap opera nagkaroon kami ng misunderstanding, ng tampuhan and then naging okay and then nagsama kami sa indie ko na Noy. And then after that ngayon nagkasama kami ulit sa movie, 'pag nakikita ko si Ate Kris nahihiya ako eh kasi 'yung respeto tapos hindi ko alam kung paano ko siya i-a-approach," revealed Coco.
He added, "And then later on nung nagiging kampante na 'ko sa kanya, baliktad na, 'Pag dumarating ako sa set siya ang una kong hinahanap."
Things have truly turned around for them so much so that he often makes time to have a chat with her while on the set.
"Kasi ako pumupunta ako sa place niya kasi hindi siya nagte-tent eh nandoon lang siya sa tabi ng van niya eh. Kami ni Mommy Pie kami ang nakikipagkwentuhan sa kanya. And then sobrang relaxed," he ended.
Kris for her part has shared that working with Coco has enabled her to have a newfound respect for him particularly due to his creative inputs to the ending of their film.
