Sarah Geronimo talks about how she deals with heartbreak
062715-sarah_main.jpgIn her first big screen pairing with Piolo Pascual, Sarah Geronimo admitted that on the set of their movie The BreakUp Playlist he definitely lived up to his reputation as a heartthrob. “Una sa lahat, mas guwapo talaga siya. Guwapo na sa TV, pero talagang iba yung pagka-guwapo niya sa personal. Nakakatuwa lang na lahat ng mga kababaihan sa set maririnig mo, 'Haaaay si Papa P, nakasalubong ko siya, naka-sando.' As in lahat ng kababaihan sa set lagi silang may mga compliments kay Piolo. Sa ugali niya talagang hats off ako sa sobrang professionalism niya. Talagang napaka-seryoso niya sa trabaho pero he also knows how to have fun. Pag nakikipag-kuwentuhan sa set giving din siya. Mas ako pa nga yung nahihiya na magkuwento, yung magpakatotoo. Siya yung talagang napaka-natural lang. At yun yung gustong gusto kong lumalabas pagka-may eksena kami na,” she shared. 

Until now, the Popstar Princess said she still finds it surreal to be paired with Piolo. “Mahirap yung thought na i-portray ko yung character na girlfriend ni Gino na ang nag-po-portray si Piolo Pascual kasi siyempre na-intimidate ako. Hiyang hiya talaga ako as in mahawakan lang hiyang hiya na ako. Para akong matutunaw. Pawis na pawis na yung kili-kili ko (laughs). Look test pa lang hiyang hiya na talaga ako. Pero dahil kailangan at wala tayong choice at nag-commit tayo, ilalagay mo yung isip mo, yung puso mo dun sa character mo. Mapapanindigan mo at talagang mabibigay mo ng tama yung portrayal mo so in-overcome ko yun. Pero minsan talagang kumakawala talaga na ang surreal pa rin. Pero in-enjoy ko at saka isang karangalan na makatrabaho ang nag-iisang Piolo Pascual,” she explained.

When asked how she is able to be successful at the box office with every new movie, Sarah chalked it up to one simple reason. “Wala akong sikreto. Siguro ang sikreto lang talaga is i-commit mo yung puso mo talaga na makagawa ka ng maayos na portrayal kahit na anong role ang ibigay sa iyo.”

During filming, Sarah said there was no shortage of lively moments with Piolo. “Meron kaming eksena na tuwang tuwa ako. Napakatotoo yung tawa ko kasi nandudun yung pagiging Gino niya, pero lumalabas din yung pagka-Piolo Pascual niya. May ganun siyang side, yung pagiging komedyante niya. At saka favorite niya yung mais na pagkain talaga, yung puting mais!” she shared.


062715-sarah_main.jpgIn real life, Sarah said she has also had her share of listening to breakup songs which have helped her overcome past heartbreak. “Yung breakup playlist or kahit yung pag-alala mo sa emotions mo na bawat emosyon kailangan mong pagdaanan. Or else mababaliw ka (laughs). Nung magkasama kami ni ate Juday (Santos) sa Hating Kapatid gumagawa kami ng pelikula, may music nun, nakalimutan ko na yung music, heartbreak song siya, tapos nilakasan namin yung tugtog tapos kumakanta lang kami. Umiiyak ako, ganyan. Kasi parte ng process yan eh. Di ba yung alagaan mo yung sakit until mawala na?” she said.

Looking solid with her relationship with Matteo Guidicelli, Sarah was asked if she considers herself to have a happy heart right now. “Sana po. Siyempre wala namang perpektong sitwasyon or perpektong solusyon. Kailangan mo lang ipagdasal talaga na kung ano yung kalooban ng Diyos yun yung mangyayari sa bawat relasyon na pinapasukan mo,” she added.

During the presscon for The BreakUp Playlist, the movie was compared to a recent Hollywood film which also had a music theme and starred British actress Keira Knightley. Sarah clarified why there should be no comparison between their characters. “Ang similarities lang siguro katulad nung sa Begin Again kasi ung ka-relasyon ni Keira Knightley dun si Adam Levine. Yung boyfriend niya yung sumikat na rock star, siya yung nakikinig sa mga kanta niya. Kami kasi dito ni Piolo pareho kami dito na nagtratrabaho kami, pareho kaming sumikat magkasama kami sa success na yun, pareho naming mahal ang music. Yung magiging conflict pala is magiging pangarap din namin,” she said.
