In his latest comedy movie Bar Boys, Kean Cipriano stars with Carlo Aquino, Rocco Nacino, and Enzo Pineda as a group of boys who enter the dog-eat-dog world of law school. The 29-year-old actor admitted it was easy working with his co-stars. "Solid yung grupo naming apat. Pag nagsama kami sa eksena okay na lahat, kung chemistry man yung tawag dun. Nagawa naman ng tama at saka sobrang chill lang yung pelikula. Mas gumagalaw yung pelikula dun sa script kesa sa dialogue ng mga characters,” he shared during the Bar Boys presscon held last November 17 at the Blue Rocket Kitchen in Quezon city.
Kean also admitted that at this one point in his life he would still want to pursue becoming a lawyer if given the chance. "Oo actually ngayon gusto ko maging lawyer. Totoo ito ha hindi ko lang yan sinasabi ngayon. Meron akong ganun eh. Kasi parang meron akong sinasabi sa sarili ko palagi na ayoko ng gulo sa sistema. Kung meron akong nakikita parang ano yan, bakit ganyan?” he said.
After the birth of his baby Stellar earlier this year, Kean said that fatherhood has definitely inspired him to work harder. "Definitely. Iba eh. Ibang drive. Kumbaga kung inspired ako sa buhay ko sa level na ganito, more pa ngayon. Family is the most important thing. Siyempre madaming factor pag may pamilya ka na din pero ako kasi ever since mahilig akong magtrabaho, mahilig akong gumawa ng mga kung ano lang pelikula o tutugtog ako o kung ano man. Mahal ko lang yung ginaggawa ko, mahal ko yung industry kung nasaan ako. Mahal ko yung ginagawa ko kaya tuloy tuloy lang. Naging drive ko yun. Natutuwa lang ako kasi ang daming nagtitiwala at na-appreciate ko yun sobra,” he shared.
Even though he is a new dad, the talented singer-actor could not hide his happiness with his new family. “Fatherhood is a dream come true. It’s really more than what I expected. I don’t know what kind of father I’ll be. I just want to be a good dad. I don’t know. I have no idea. I just want to be a good person to the kid,” he added.
This year, the Bar Boys actor also celebrated his first year anniversary with Chynna Ortaleza in Japan. Ever since the start of their relationship, Kean has kept the details of their marriage at a minimum. "Sa totoo lang, ano kami eh, pag kinuwento ko kasi kung anong nangyari sa Japan namin ni Chynna parang ayoko galawin kung gaano ka-sacred yun nangyari sa loob ng trip na yun na kaming dalawa lang ang nandun. Okay naman. Okay naman lahat. I am blessed with a beautiful woman, with a beautiful being. I can never ask for more than that. She’s the woman of my dreams. Wala na akong ibang hihilingin pa,” he explained.
Even though they are both from showbiz, Kean also shared why it will be unlikely for him and his wife to act together in a project in the future. "Dapat, yun yung point. Hindi naman dapat kung meron kaming isang napagkasunduan ni Chynna eh siyempre na-establish nung tao yung career niya for the longest time so kung anong kailangan niya gawin, mission niya as siya gagawin niya tapos yung mission ko as ako. Pero at the end of the day, I sleep with my best friend you know,” he said.
Bar Boys will be shown starting December 7 exclusively in SM cinemas nationwide. Bar Boys is directed by Kip Oebanda under TropicFrills Film Productions and also stars Anna Luna and Hazel Faith Cruz. It is co-produced by the Rotary Club of San Miguel Makati.
