Angel Jones, the mom of heartthrob Tony Labrusca, finally gave her two cents about her son's steamy scenes with Angel Aquino from the iWant original film Glorious.
"You know, people want me to say that I'm shocked, and this and that. But because I was there when they were filming and all that, I see an actor—I see a talented actor. Angel and Tony had so much chemistry that when you watch the movie, parang I forget that he's my son. And I see these two people in love and I see chemistry. I see great acting. That's what I see. I don't see weird, awkward 'Oh My God,’" she said in an exclusive interview with PUSH at the ABS-CBN Christmas Trade Launch.
"I guess we're so open about relationships and things like that that those type of scenes isn't weird. It's natural. If you're not doing laplapan like that with your lover, then you're doing it wrong," she added.
Asked if she was okay watching it, Jones, who is almost five years younger than Aquino, went straight to the point and explained why she doesn't find any of the latter's scenes with her son too uncomfortable.
"Again, I'll be honest. A little bit. But because I know that it's part of the art, I was so proud of him for being able to execute that. You know what I mean? He was professional. Angel was so professional. And that was what I was so proud of. They were so professional and they did their job. They made everyone feel that they were so in love—and that's what I was so proud of," she stated.
Jones also opened up about what she feels on the success of her son Tony who is doing one project after another.
"You know, what? You'd think I'd be really shocked, but because I know him and I know his talent, I just… I'm so happy for happy him. And I feel like he deserves it because I know his capabilities so I see what's going to happen for him. I see nothing but really amazing things for him. So I just feel proud and also confident because I know that he's so talented," she said.
