Marian Rivera Talks About Love Scenes with Richard Gutierrez in ‘My Lady Boss’
February 4, 2013 by GMA-7
During a recent press interview with GMA’s primetime queen Marian Rivera on the set of the upcoming Valentine movie “My Lady Boss,” she was grilled with questions pertaining to a very intimate kissing scene with her leading man in the movie, Richard Gutierrez.
So did she “enjoy” it?
“Actually, ‘pag nag-roll ang camera hindi na ako si Marian Rivera, ako na si Evelyn,” quipped Marian. “As Evelyn, inenjoy ko si Zack (Richard’s character),” she continued.
As much as possible, Marian avoids doing very intimate kissing scenes with his leading men in TV series and films and she does not easily agree to doing bed scenes unless the story really calls for it.
“Malaki ang tiwala ko kay Chard (Richard). Besides, ever since naman na nagkatrabaho kami hindi naman siya nag-take advantage sa akin at siya mismo ‘yong umaalalay sa akin e,” shared the actress.
She clarified, however, that in her seven years in the business, she has not experienced being taken advantage of by any of her previous leading men.
“Siguro ‘yon ‘yong isa sa dahilan kung bakit proud ako sa sarili ko kasi kahit sino ang naka-eksena ko, never kong naramdaman na hindi ako nirespeto,” she said.
It is not Marian’s first time to work in a movie with Richard. In fact, their first movie team up was in the romantic-comedy film “My Best Friend’s Girlfriend (My BFGF),” which was released almost five years ago (2008).
Marian says a lot has changed between her working relationship with Richard during the “My BFGF” days and now in “My Lady Boss.”
“Nung nakatrabaho ko siya sa “My BFGF,” he was very okay, sincere at sweet siya sa lahat pero ngayon parang mas malalim yung pagiging ganoon niya sa akin,” said Marian about Richard. “Minsan niloko ko siya na nagugutom ako at gusto ko nito tapos dinalhan niya ako ng food pero hindi lang ako ha; lahat ng taong nandito dinalhan niya ng food. Mas naging sweet siya, mas lumawak yung pag-iisip niya tungkol sa pagkakaibigan naming dalawa. Masarap siyang kasama. ‘Yun din siguro yung isang espesiyal sa aming dalawa: ‘pag magkasama kaming dalawa, although alam naming trabaho ‘to at pinagbubutihan namin, ineenjoy pa rin namin.”
“May mga times na kahit seryoso ‘yung eksena namin tawa lang kami nang tawa. Ang saya lang. Hindi mo maramdaman ‘yong pressure sa set. Nag-uusap kaming dalawa kung anu-ano yung makakabuti para sa eksena namin. Nagsusuggest kami sa isa’t isa – isang bagay na hindi namin nagawa dati,” Marian added.
Although Marian and Richard are both in a relationship, they still manage to be convincingly sweet on-cam. Marian spills the beans.
“Siguro kasi mas lumalim na ‘yong samahan naming dalawa. Akala ko kasi since after the ‘My BFGF’ ay hindi na kami ulit nagkasama sa soap opera o sa isang pelikula magkakaroon na kahit papaano ng ‘wall’ o magkakahiyaan pero unexpectedly, nagkaroon pa kami ng mas matinding bonding, mas lumalim pa yun samahan namin, mas nakilala pa namin ang isa’t isa,” she explained.
Unlike “My BFGF,” “My Lady Boss” promises to be “sexier,” “wilder” and more “intense” without of course dropping the comedy portion. In fact, apart from the very passionate kissing scene, Marian and Richard also have several bed scenes in the movie.
“Kasi sa ‘My BFGF’ bakya talaga ‘yong character ko dun e, dito kasi hindi. So first time ko sa isang pelikula na magiging maldita ako, at lalambot, at maiinlove at migiging ‘wild’ sa huli,” Marian revealed. “Medyo kakaiba ito para sa akin. Siguro it’s about time na i-open ko na ‘yong pinto ko para sa ganitong klaseng eksena (laughs).”
”My Lady Boss” is a joint production of GMA Films and Regal Films and is directed by Jade Castro. It will hit nationwide theatres soon.
