What’s keeping Tom from proposing to Carla

TOM Rodriguez was torn between a woman and another man in the hit soap “My Husband’s Lover.” This time, he’s torn between two women in the love triangle movie, “The Significant Other.” As a successful cosmetic surgeon who’s married to Lovi Poe, the country’s number one model, Tom then has an affair with an alluring new patient, Erich Gonzales, an aspiring model who’s the rival of Lovi. They get into a tempestuous affair and all hell breaks loose when Lovi learns about this. Tom says he has fiery love scenes with both Lovi and Erich.

When he participates in the Bench underwear fashion show, Tom is always talked about because of his bulging crotch. “The Significant Other” director Joel Lamangan vouches that he is really “gifted.” Will Tom be willing to do a full frontal nudity scene? 

“Actually, in art school, when I was 18, nag-pose na ako ng nude in a painting session. Wala kasing makuhang models at kami-kami lang naman so I did it. But now, in the movies, it won’t be that easy. Maraming dapat i-consider. Is the role and the project worth it? Who’ll be the director and what will be the treatment? Mga ganun.”

Will he take his girlfriend Carla Abellana to the premiere night of “The Significant Other” and make her watch his love scenes with Lovi and Erich? 

“Why not? Alam naman niyang this is just part of our job as actors. I don’t really mind.”

Have they talked about facing the altar? 

“Yes, but nothing serious. Kasi kailangang mag-ipon muna kami, for the wedding and for our future. Kung mananalo lang ako sa lotto, baka bukas, mag-propose na agad ako. But we have to prepare muna talaga seriously.”

“The Significant Other” opens in theaters on February 21.

Coleen Garcia shows a very sultry and sensuous side of her in Star Cinema’s Valentine offering, “Sin Island,” directed by Gino Santos. 

“It’s definitely my most daring role to date as it’s not your usual rom-com,” she says. “Puede mong panoorin kahit wala kang jowa and be with your whole barkada on the day of hearts. Everyone will enjoy it kasi it’s so spicy, not bland or walang lasa. This one is definitely steamy! I even have a shower scene with Xian Lim.”

The movie is shot in what is called the Sinilaban Island and it will really ignite the passions of people who go there. Coleen plays Kanika, a beautiful flight attendant who is the wife of Xian Lim as David, an ace photographer. They have a misunderstanding when Coleen gets attracted to a co-worker, TJ Trinidad. This angers Xian who goes by himself to the island to nurse his broken heart. 

In the island, Xian meets a sexy girl doing yoga on the beach while naked, Nathalie Hart as Tasha, a liberated fashion designer. They quickly engage in a tempestuous affair. But Coleen follows Xian to the island and is very determined to solve their marital problems and win her husband back. 

The movie has a dark twist that will surely surprise viewers in that it turns into a suspenseful thriller that will show a very dangerous side of love that turns into an obsession. 

Everyone knows Coleen will soon walk down the isle with her prospetive groom, Billy Crawford. Will she let Billy watch “Sin Island” and her sizzling love scenes with Xian? 

“Why not? I had a movie with Derek Ramsay before na may torrid love scene and he didn’t mind watching it at all. We’re all professionals here.”

Yam Concepcion had fun shooting “Amnesia Love” with Paolo Ballesteros in an island off Mindoro and, later, in another island in Zambales. 

“Mahirap ang working conditions kasi wala namang proper accommodations dun sa island, pero okay lang kasi game lahat ng kasama namin sa shooting, lalo na si Paolo,” she says. “It’s really a privilege to be paired with him kasi nanalo na siya ng best actor awards locally and internationally. At utang na loob ko sa kanya ang pelikulang ito kasi siya mismo ang pumili sa aking maging leading lady niya after magkasama kami before sa ‘Bakit Lahat ng Guwapo May Boyfriend’.”

In the story, Paolo turns out to be gay. Is it possible for her to fall for a gay guy? 

“I think so, yes. Kasi, more than sa physical, sa ugali ako tumitingin kasi ‘yung magandang ugali, hindi nawawala yun hanggang sa pagtanda.”

Wasn’t she linked to Ejay Falcon before? 

“Yes, when we were doing ‘Pasion de Amor.’ Pero itinutukso lang kami sa isa’t isa at never naman naging kami. May non-showbiz boyfriend ako at three years na kami.”

The name of her boyfriend is Miguel CuUnjieng and he’s based in the U.S. “Yes, it’s a long-distance love affair, but carry naman. Three years na kami, one month and three days. Sobrang bait niya and he’s very faithful kaya I trust him. He used to work for an NGO company in Boston but now, nakuha niya ang dream job niya sa Wells Fargo, an international bank.”

Angelu de Leon is enjoying her villain role to the hilt in the hit afternoon soap, “The Stepdaughters,” that now airs after “Ika-6 na Utos.” She plays Brenda, the wife of Gary Estrada and mom of Katrina Halili who is very mean to Glydel Mercado and Megan Young. 

“Lately, puro mabait ang roles ko so I welcome playing this role na hindi ako kawawa at umiiyak,” she says. “Na-miss ko rin ‘yung ako ang nagtataray, nang-aapi at nakikipag-away. May lalim naman ‘yung character ni Brenda rito kasi may pinanggagalingan ‘yung kasamaan niya.

Maaaring morally, questionable siya, but she’s actually just thinking of her family at gusto niyang makaahon sila sa hirap sa squatter area na tinitirhan nila.”

We saw the pilot episode of “The Stepdaughters” and there are scenes where she is maltreating the child actress who plays the young Megan Young. Did she have any qualms doing this? 

“Siempre, I felt reluctant at the start. Pero siya pa ang nagsabi sa’kin na okay lang pong saktan nyo ako. So sabi ko naman, naku, anak, sigurado ka ba dyan? Okay raw, gusto raw niya maramdaman ang eksena. So di sige, ginawa namin, pero alalay pa rin ako sa kanya. I don’t want to really hurt her.”

It’s good she can still act even if the effects of Bell’s Palsy have not totally been healed on her face. 

“Yes, may part ng bibig ko at ng isang mata ko na hindi gumagalaw pero okay lang naman. Hindi halata. Buti nga kahit may ganito ako, nakuha pa akong endorser ng isang slimming salon. Hindi naman ako pinababayaan ng Panginoong Hesus. I’m totally at peace with Him so I was never bitter dahil sa naging sakit ko. Hayan nga’t tuloy-tuloy lang ang projects ko.”

Now that his mentor Maryo J. delos Reyes is gone, a lot of people are trying to convince Ruru Madrid to sign up with them and be their new manager. But someone who’s been very close to Ruru for sometime now says this cannot be. 

“Over my dead body!” threatens Joe Barrameda. 

Ruru is still grieving but he’s very happy that his primetime show, “Sherlock Jr.,” is doing very well and it was trending recently, when her girlfriend in the story, Janine Gutierrez, died prematurely, killed by some bad elements. The show’s other attraction is the smart dog who serves as his sidekick, Siri as Serena, a golden retriever.
