Paolo describes love scene with Yam

LOVI Poe says the new year started well for her. She has a new TV show, “The One That Got Away,” and a new movie, “The Significant Other” than opens in cinemas on February 21. And she’ll soon start another movie, “Latay,” where she plays a controversial role as the violent wife of Allen Dizon, who’s a battered husband. 

We asked her if she and co-star Erich Gonzales had a tiff after they got hurt shooting a violent slapping scene in “The Significant Other.” 

“No, we’re okay,” she says. “Textmates nga kami at ang tawag niya sa’kin is Lodi Poe, kasi idol daw niya ko. Ha ha ha! I admit I was shocked sa sobrang lakas ng sampal niya sa’kin, pero mas nasaktan siya kasi tumama ‘yung kamay niya sa hikaw ko, nasugatan, nagdugo. We both got carried away. Tinalikuran namin ang isa’t isa, nagkaroon ng tensiyon sa set. But after a while, bumalik kami sa set and told Direk Joel Lamangan na ituloy na ang shooting. Nag-usap kami, said sorry to each other, at okay na uli ang lahat. I’m really happy to work with Erich kasi taga kabilang network siya and I really want to experience how to work with other stars naman.”

In the movie, she plays a top model who’s married to Tom Rodriguez, a successful cosmetic surgeon, but it’s a secret marriage as it might ruin her popularity. Erich plays an aspiring model with a birthmark who seeks the help of Tom to remove it. In the process, Tom and Erich end up having an affair, much to the chagrin of Lovi. 

We heard she and Tom have sizzling bed scenes in the movie.

“That’s true!” she says. “Isa na ito sa pinaka-daring na pelikulang nagawa ko and I’m just thankful si Tom ang kapareha ko kasi I’m so comfortable working with him na after we did ‘Someone to Watch Over Me’ on TV. Ang daming requirements ni Direk Joel Lamangan habang nasa kama kami at kahit hiyang-hiya ako, naitawid naman namin nang maayos.”

Paolo Ballesteros is back in a rom-com opposite sexpot Yam Concepcion in “Amnesia Love” that opens in theaters on February 28. For the first time, he agreed to do love scenes on screen. 

Never pa kong nakipag-love scene before, sa babae man o sa lalaki,” he says. “Si Yam ang naka-virgin sa akin. Very hot ang love scene namin sa tabing dagat kasi nagpagulong-gulong pa kami sa buhanginan.”

So how did it feel? 

“Siya yata, she felt awkward. Pero parang nadala siya sa love scene namin. Pinagsamantalahan niya ang pagkalalaki ko. Etchos!”

We asked Yam how it is kissing Paolo. 

“Malambot ang lips niya. Ini-imagine kong lalaki talaga siya.”

How did they find working with each other?

“Actually, nagkatrabaho na kami before sa ‘Bakit Lahat ng Guwapo may Boyfriend?’ so magkakilala na kami at wala nang ilangan,” says Paolo. “Masarap katrabaho si Yam kasi walang arte sa katawan. We shot the movie in eight days sa isang island off Mindoro. Walang uwian.

Mahirap puntahan, magbo-boat ka, tapos, rough roads sa isla, at bago makapunta sa beach, lalakad ka pa sa isang mahabang tulay. Malayo rin ang bihisan. Mahirap ang working conditions. May time pa na tumirik ang bangka namin sa gitna ng dagat. Walang ilaw man lang. Scary talaga. Pero walang reklamo si Yam at all.”

Yam said she is honored to have Paolo for her leading man. “It’s an honor na makatrabaho siya. Best actor yata yan sa Tokyo filmfest at dito rin sa atin. Okay siyang katrabaho kasi maalaga, very maalaga sa set. Sa love scene, talagang inalalayan niya ako throughout. At very caring din siya, kasi pati hair ko, inaayos pa niya bago mag-take.”

So how daring is their love scene? 

“Very daring,” says Paolo. “Kapag may mas daring pa run, porn na ‘yun.”

Nyoy Volante and wife, theater actress Mikee Bradshaw, are working together for the first time since they got married in the repeat of the hit West End and Broadway musical, “Kinky Boots.” The show will be shown again at the RCBC Carlos Romulo theater from March 2 to 18. 

Mikee will be playing the role of Lauren, who gets to sing the showstopping solo number, “History of Wrong Guys,” played in the original production by Yanna Laurel, who’s now busy doing another musical. 

We asked them how it is working with each other. 

“Actually, in the first production, Mikee was the one who did my make up for the show,” says Nyoy. “But now, she can’t do that anymore as she’s part of the cast. She’s a very good actor and she’s a perfect fit for the role of Lauren.”

“I really love working with him,” says Mikee. “We can ask each other for feedback and we’re very critical of each other, but in a good way.”

Mikee has a daughter, Sofie, from a previous relationship, and the 8-year old girl just loves Nyoy in his role as the crossdressing Lola in “Kinky Boots.” “Because of Lola, she now wants to have a gay black brother who can wear high heels like Lola,” says Mikee.

Sofie is also into theater. She first appeared in “Little Princess” and is now in the cast of “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” shown at Resort World. “I was hoping she’d be a doctor or a lawyer, who’ll make more money, but I guess it can’t be helped that she’ll also go into acting because we somehow influenced her.”

How will they spend Valentine’s Day? 

“Naku, that is National Nyoy Volante Day as it’s his busiest time of the year sa dami ng Valentine shows niya here and out of town,” says Mikee. “We’ll just have to wait for ten days before we can go out on a date and that’s on February 24, when we celebrate our second wedding anniversary.”

For tickets to “Kinky Boots,” call Ticketworld at (632) 891-9999 or visit www.ticketworld.com.ph.

Barbie Forteza was having dinner with BF Jak Roberto at Mesa Resto in Morato last Wednesday and they’re the ones who approached our table to greet us and our friend Malou Choa Fagar and Allan Diones. No, they’re not alone, but with Barbie’s family as her parents were celebrating their 28th wedding anniversary.

Barbie has a new show, “Inday Will Always Love You,” to be shot on location in Cebu, just like the previous “I Heart Davao,” which was set in Davao. Her co-stars are Derrick Monasterio and Juancho Trivino, with Ricky Davao and Gladys Reyes as her parents. 

This early, her fans have expressed their excitement that they will see her regularly again on primetime after her hit rom-com, “Meant to Be,” ended last year. So how come she’s paired with Derrick and not with Jak?

“May sarili po siyang show, ‘Contessa,’ with Glaiza de Castro,” she says. “Tanggap naman ng viewers ang tandem namin ni Derrick after ‘The Half Sisters’ at magkasama rin kami ngayon in a new movie, ‘Almost a Love Story,’ which we shot in Italy.”
