Sarah Geronimo admitted that she had a heart-to-heart talk with director Mae Cruz together with her co-stars Gerald Anderson and Matteo Guidicelli before they started shooting their movie with Star Cinema. But the Pop Star Princess didn’t say if she opened up to them about her past heartbreak as well, to help her internalize deep emotions for her character. “Ano lang ‘yon, kasama si direk Mae nun, kami ni Gerald atMatteo, parang getting to know conversation.Nakapag-shooting na kami ng few days. Masaya po sa set, everyone’s positive, walang nakasimangot.Hopefully, ganun na rin ‘pag malapit na yung playdate,” said Sarah, who’s very careful when it comes to the media’s questions related to her love life.
Sarah also refused to comment on the fact that she used to be romantically linked to Matteo who had a huge crush on her. But she was quick to say that she has good rapport with both of her leading men. “Pareho silangprofessional at pareho silang gentleman, inaalalayan ka nila, yung respeto sa babae na co-star makikita mo sa kanila. Masaya, para nga kaming magkakaptid dun sa set, nagkagaanan kami ng loob agad. Pero sa ngayon hindi ko pa masabi yung mga bagay na napagkakasunduan namin kasi nasa proseso pa rin kami nggetting to know each other.”
As the current box office queen, there’s really pressure for Sarah to come up with another hit movie. In the same way that Gerald is challenged to measure up to Sarah’s former ka-love team, John Lloyd Cruz. But Sarah remains optimistic that their fans will support them no matter what. “Ang pressure lagi namang nand’yan ‘yan. Yun nga, sabi ni Gerald let’s take it as a challenge, para pagbutihan ang trabaho namin para hindi ma-disappoint ang mga tao. Bahala na si Lord kung ano ang magiging outcome ng proyektong ito, kung ma-appreciate ng mga tao. Pero alam namin sa sarili namin binigay namin ang makakaya namin para pagandahin ang pelikula.”
Despite the intrigues about her love life and showbiz career, Sarah didn’t fail to entertain the guests of the 16th Jollibee Maaga Ang Pasko thanksgiving event at the Mandarin hotel last February 8. She wowed them with her renditions of “Firework,” “Love Will Keep Us Together.” and “Number One.” “I feel so blessed na bahagi pa rin ako ng Jollibee family. Every Christmas nand’yan ang ‘Maaga Ang Pasko’ para bigyan ng happiness ang mga batang Pinoy. Aside from giving away toys and books, we also marked the turnover of the proceeds from the Jollibee and Friends dolls novelty promo to the Department of Education to build public school rooms in 2011. So I’m really proud to be part of a meaningful cause na tulad nito,” she cheerfully added.
