On Aquino and Abunda Tonight, Ex with Benefits stars Derek Ramsay and Coleen Garcia revealed how they did their kissing scenes. Derek said they didn’t actually talk about the kissing scenes and how they were going to go about it because doing so would make the scenes appear technical.
Rather, they talked about other stuff, basically getting to know each other so that they would be more comfortable with each other when they need to do kissing scenes. Derek told Coleen, "I'm trying to gain your trust." Coleen also said they talked about the execution of the kissing scenes up to a point but the rest is "surrendering" and "allowing it to happen."
The two said kissing scenes can't be faked because as Derek says "kitang-kita kapag daya." In Ex with Benefits, Derek and Coleen had the most difficult kissing scenes because there are "levels." There's that youthful kiss when they were in College, or that romantic kiss when they were falling in love.
Asked if it is the kind of movie they can show their partners, Coleen admitted that she didn't want beau Billy Crawford to see it at first. But being "supportive, pinilit niya." Derek, for his part, said his girlfriend is "really good to watch it." Derek added that it's a brilliant film and she's just as excited as him to watch it.
