Ano ang naging pangamba ni Kris Aquino nang ipalabas ang 'Crazy Rich Asians' sa bansa?


 

Kris Aquino took to social media to reveal the fears she had when the movie "Crazy Rich Asians" started showing here in the Philippines. 

In her Instagram page, Kris wrote, "When @crazyrichasians became the #1 movie in the US, that Monday night (August 20) after reading it earned $35.5M in the 5 days since Aug 15, I was so stressed & anxious that my BP was at hypertensive crisis level. There was FEAR that if it did poorly here, I’d be the logical punching bag & laughingstock."

Kris also revealed the reason why she chose to stay quiet online when the movie had its debut here in the Philippines. "I firmly decided to shut up about @crazyrichasians... as previously stated, the movie shouldn’t become a referendum on the moviegoers’ feelings about me and/or my family," Kris posted.

She added, "It wouldn’t be right to see what was so instrumental in helping me regain my self worth suffer because of association with me. Prayers and silence were my best options. "

When she learned the box-office results, Kris’ fears faded away. "Then like a dream friends started sending me pictures & videos of all seats taken cinemas, I read in messages the spontaneous cheers when Princess Intan walked in. I reached out to Ms. Sionee Lagman, the marketing director of @wbpictures 🇵🇭 on Saturday to ask how the movie was doing? I received this at 2:44 PM Monday: Sharing with you CRA’s 🇵🇭record breaking opening weekend box-office results as promised: CRA Op We box-office - P82.7M: Biggest Op We for a WB FIlm for 2018; Biggest All Time Op We for a Foreign/English RomCom. Congratulations. She updated me just now- 7 day total is ₱110M," she wrote.

Kris remarked that she is thankful for being given the opportunity to represent the Filipinos in the global stage. “Just thank you, not because of illusions about my contribution-but because my cameo appearance in a historically significant, phenomenally successful #1 Hollywood movie championing inclusivity for all Asians elevated Filipinos," Kris posted.

My soul baring truths: 1. When @crazyrichasians became the #1 movie in the 🇺🇸, that Monday night (August 20) after reading it earned $35.5M in the 5 days since Aug 15, i was so stressed & anxious that my BP was at hypertensive crisis level. There was FEAR that if it did poorly here, i’d be the logical punching bag & laughingstock. 2. I firmly decided to shut up about @crazyrichasians... as previously stated, the movie shouldn’t become a referendum on the moviegoers’ feelings about me and/or my family. It wouldn’t be right to see what was so instrumental in helping me regain MY SELF WORTH suffer because of association w/ me. PRAYERS & SILENCE were my best options. 3. Then like a dream friends started sending me pictures & videos of all seats taken cinemas, i read in messages the spontaneous cheers when Princess Intan walked in. 4. i reached out to Ms. Sionee Lagman, the marketing director of @wbpictures 🇵🇭 on Saturday to ask how the movie was doing? 5. i received this at 2:44 PM Monday: Sharing with you CRA’s 🇵🇭record breaking opening weekend box-office results as promised: CRA Op We box-office - P82.7M: Biggest Op We for a WB FIlm for 2018; Biggest All Time Op We for a Foreign/English RomCom. Congratulations. She updated me just now- 7 day total is ₱110M.❤️ 6. Just THANK YOU, not because of illusions about my contribution-but because my cameo appearance in a historically significant, phenomenally successful #1 Hollywood movie championing INCLUSIVITY for all Asians elevated Filipinos- 1 of us was chosen to be the only ROYAL in the fantasy world of CRAZY RICH ASIANS. 7. After portraying an orphaned girl pushing a “kariton” in her 1st movie 28 years ago, capping that roller coaster ride of hits & misses to portray a Princess resplendent in her real life family’s & democracy’s symbolic yellow- this girl was given her version of not just THE END but the magical HAPPILY EVER AFTER. 8. To all the Rachels, never allow the Eleanors to bully you. BE BRAVE because of your intelligence, personal achievements & your courage to LOVE.💛
