Kathryn Bernardo defends Daniel Padilla: ‘Hindi siya bad boy’


073014-kathniel_main.jpgWith the success of their third movie together She's Dating The Gangster, Kathryn Bernardo admitted she herself felt “kilig” while making the romantic comedy film adapted from a popular Wattpad novel. “Ibang level ang kilig dito. Totoo kasi nung binabasa ko pa lang yung script, kahit sa libro pa lang pag ini-imagine mo pa lang kikiligin ka so lalo na nung ginagawa na namin yung scene. At lalong lalo na nung dinu-dub na namin. Bihira lang yung ikaw yung gumagawa pero kinikilig ka, so naramdaman ko yun nung dina-dub namin so abangan niyo kasi ibang kilig talaga ito. Hindi lang siya pang-teenager na kilig. Lahat sana kiligin,” she shared.

Kath said that her latest Star Cinema project was an enjoyable experience on and off cam. “Yung pinakamasaya i-shoot feeling ko masaya yung pareho kami sa sexy love kasi kahit pag nag-mo-mall show kami yung mga tao sinasabayan na nila yung cheer na sexy love tapos pag napanuod niyo sa movie makikita niyo yung scene na yun, sana ma-enjoy niyo rin kasi sobrang na-enjoy namin siya gawin. And the whole movie kasi, sa lahat ng nagawa ko, ito yung pinakamalapit sa akin kasi yung story and yung lahat ng nangyayari behind the camera sobra din kasing ganda ng samahan namin sa movie na ito,” she said.

Some of the most memorable scenes they shot were at the scenic Mayon volcano in Legazpi, Albay. “Masaya yung shoot namin kasi sa Must Be Love sa Cebu naman kami and then this time sa Bicol tapos umakyat talaga kami sa mismong Mayon para i-shoot. Gusto namin pareho ni DJ yung sa Mayon kasi nag-enjoy si DJ mag-ATV,” she added.

For her future projects, The She's Dating The Gangster star said she would like to be able to do more romantic comedies appropriate for her age. She said she is not in a hurry to do more adult roles. “Na-enjoy ko yung rom-com kasi yung vibe niya at saka masarap paglaruan yung character tapos feeling ko okay pa ako sana sa rom-com ulit. Kung ano yung ibigay nila sa amin. Kasi bago naman nila ibigay sa amin ni DJ yung project they make sure na bagay sa amin yung story so open naman ako sa mga roles na ibibigay pero medyo gusto ko pa rin rom-com,” she admitted.


073014-kathniel_main.jpgAs part of the reigning teen love team in the country today, Kathryn said a lot has changed ever since she started working with DJ in the weekend teen-oriented show Growing Up in 2011. “Sobrang comfortable na kami sa isa't isa siguro kasi halos everyday siya na yung kasama ko, kilalang kilala ko na si DJ, kilala rin niya ako kaya parang kahit ano, hindi na ako mahihiyang gawin kay DJ. Kasi kung i-ko-compare ko sa first project namin together nung nahihiya pa ako kay DJ at hindi ko alam kung paano siya kausapin, pero ngayon parang puwede ko sabihin kahit ano na sa kanya kasi alam ko maiintindihan ka niya,” she explained.

When asked how she feels about people referring to DJ as a bad boy, the 18-year-old actress defended her ka-“MU” “Siguro may bad boy qualities lang si DJ pero hindi siya bad boy kasi pag nakilala mo na sya makikita mo talaga kung ano talaga siya. Physically makikita niyo maangas siya tapos parang parati siyang astig lang. Pero once na makilala mo si DJ malalim siyang tao.”
