Bela Padilla is still on cloud 9 after receiving good reviews about Last Night, the first full-length film she wrote, which stars Piolo Pascual and Toni Gonzaga.
On her Instagram, Bela however said that she is most grateful for the reviews Yassi Pressman and Dani Barretto shared on social media.
The actress-turned-scriptwriter said their words mean the most to her as, “They both knew the whole story of Last Night before I even pitched it. But they both watched it and felt it the same way I did. As if they were learning about it for the first time.”
Bela added that even though she’s not that “showy” when it comes to their friendship, she assured her ‘sisters’ that she loves them very much.
Of all the beautiful things I've read about Last Night (thank you po!) these two will mean the most to me. I've been so emotional today because everything made sense. All the sleepless nights, taping and shooting and working non stop paid off today because I was given something I didn't even dare dream of (I'm sorry but this is such a big deal to me 😂) and these two got me through all of those days. The good ones and the bad. Thank you, Yassi and Dani (and now Josh and Kimmy) for being the best people to be around. All my stories wouldn't move if I had nobody to tell them to. The characters wouldn't talk if I didn't inject the people I love into them and they both know I use them in my stories. They both knew the whole story of Last Night before I even pitched it. But they both watched it and felt it the same way I did. As if they were learning about it for the first time. Thank you both for that. For being so supportive. For loving me even if I'm not as showy as both of you. For tolerating my "get off me" face when you hug me. And for allowing my silence after you both say "I love you". I may not be as affectionate as you guys but know that the love I have for you is deep. Which is why your messages brought me to tears. Cheers to the sisters I chose to have ❤️
She was always waaaay better at words than me, I'd just be the one with all the hugs and actions, but she would know exactly what to say in my sadness, boost me up at my lowest of lows, and laugh with me in some of my best moments. I love seeing color in people, and boy, this girl is colorful. Kahapon, napanuod ko ang isang pelikulang Sinulat niya. 📝Finally, people are going to get to see her words, feel her heart, and get to peep inside what's going on in that beautiful brain of hers. Mahal kita Bel! And i'm so happy I was there holding your hand. I'm so proud of you! @belapadilla #LastNightMovie ❤️ Congratulations sa LAHAT nasa likod ng pelikulang 'Last Night.'👏🏻 @n2_productions daddy neil, dos, nik! Direk Joyce! At kay Ate Toni Gonzaga, and Piolo Pascual! 👏🏻 Congratulations po!
