What did Kim Chiu reveal about Xian Lim’s preparations for his shirtless scene in ‘All You Need is Pag-ibig?’
All You Need is Pag-ibig
stars Kim Chiu and Xian Lim talked about their experiences while filming the 2015 Metro Manila Film Festival entry.
Talking about the scene that she enjoyed doing, Kim reminisced the part where they rode on a speedboat. However, while Kim enjoyed this water activity, Xian admitted he felt nauseated. “Si Kim kasi mahilig sa mga ganoong kakaiba. Ako naman, parang sukang suka na ako kasi mga isang oras na kaming paikot-ikot lang dun,” he lightheartedly shared.
When asked about their memorable lines in the movie, Kim said, “May sinabi ako dun na, ‘sana ganoon din ako magmahal, ‘yung hindi madamot,’” adding that it was her character Anya’s realization.
Although he did not mention lines to avoid spoiling the movie, Xian answered that his favorite part was a confrontation scene with Kim’s character. “Napa-realize ko sa kanya kung ano siya ngayon. ‘Yung narealize niya na parang ito ‘yung ginagawa niya sa buhay niya, ito ‘yung pananaw niya sa pag-ibig. Ganito siya umibig ng tao kaya siya mag-iisa,” he said, confirming Anya’s selfishness.
Meanwhile, when asked if there are scenes that they still find difficult to do, Kim admitted sometimes they do not understand the scene well enough. However, in this movie, Xian said, “Pero this particular movie, it’s very light. Sabi ko nga, it’s ano, bring yourself lang talaga… Being actors, kung ano ‘yung napagdaan mo, whatever you can offer, hindi na kailangan siyang… ‘bigyan ka naming five minutes, karga ka or internalize,’ it’s not that. So wala namang mga ganong eksena dito. It’s a happy movie.”
Speaking of Xian, his shirtless scene was also brought up during the interview. Kim then revealed, “Hindi siya kumain. Nasa Palawan kami, buffet buffet, sabi ko ‘halika na, kain na tayo,’ sabi niya, ‘ayoko.’” Saying that this was his first time to go shirtless on the big screen, Xian admitted, “So ‘yun, I think for me, that’s the most, medyo nahirapan ako. Nakakahiya eh… Kumakain naman ako pero hindi ko lang maenjoy talaga ng todo ‘yung buffet na (nakahain).”
