Arci Muñoz candidly talked about her “most challenging” task as an actress to date—that is filming the love scene for her upcoming film Can We Still Be Friends opposite Gerald Anderson.
“'Yun ang pinaka-challenging na kailangan kong gawin sa buong pelikula. Actually, sa lahat ng nagawa ko, 'yun ang pinakamahirap na iarte. Talagang 'yung pawis ko, yung malalaki, ‘yung parang sa anime,” shared Arci during their movie’s recent press conference, which elicited laughter from the members of the press.
'Yun ang pinakamahirap, hindi ko alam kung bakit,” she shared, laughing.
But even though it was the hardest part to film, Arci laughingly shared that she “made the most out of it.”
“Ako pa ‘yung nagte-take advantage,” she admitted. “Ang ganda kasi ng abs niya.”
She continued, “Ang abs po niya, never absent, always present. Ang hirap po kasing labanan. Ang ganda kasi talaga. Parang ayaw ko matapos.”
What further surprised the press was Arci’s revelation that she even talked to their director Prime Cruz about that certain scene.
“Sabi ko kay Direk Prime ‘wag niyang ika-cut. Sabi ko ‘Wait lang Direk.’ Kinausap ko na siya sa monitor nila eh. Eh cinut niya,” she said shaking her head.
Without giving too many details, Arci revealed the “effect” of that scene on the people on the set.
“Madaling araw na noon pero nagising lahat ng tao sa set,” said Arci.
Despite having “difficulty” acting that scene, Arci and Gerald were able to pull it off all because they were very much comfortable with each other.
“Kami ni Ge, he’s such a gentleman. Una pa lang, siyempre nakaka-intimidate kasi nung time na 'yun, bago lang ako. Maganda 'yung relationship namin na casual lang. Komportable kami hanggang ngayon. Wala namang nagbago. Happy set kami,” she said.
The tandem first worked together on the big screen last year in the box office hit Always Be My Maybe.
The so-called Team Relate are reuniting on the big screen for their second film which talks about the possibility of being friends with your ex-lover.
