This is what President Rodrigo Duterte said of the honorary award:

 

“With due respect sa University of the Philippines, I do not accept even if I was mayor.

Hindi ako tumatanggap, as a matter of personal and official policy, I do not accept awards. Wala sa pagkatao ko. Hindi ko nire-reject. To use reject… I simply declined,” paliwanag ng Pangulo nang kapanayamin sa isyu matapos ang dinaluhang command conference sa lalawigan ng Bohol kahapon.

Kris Aquino backed out of MMFF movie ‘coz it may not be a Box-office hit!?

MANILA, Philippines – Kris Aquino is out of the 20115 Metro Manila Film Festival entry “All You Need is Pag-ibig.”

The Queen of All Media has announced this through her Instagram account on Wednesday.

Kris Aquino

Kris said that she has accepted the project and was a “good sport” despite “a storyline that would lay bare all my insecurities- the treatment given to me had the harsh but realistic words: ‘Sya si Kris- ang babaeng laging di pinipili…’”

However, Kris added that when the cinematographer she requested couldn’t commit to the film due to “schedule conflicts,” she decided to back out of the film.

“His job was to hold a mirror to my heart & soul for you to see in our movie, and I knew I’d be in good hands… And it just couldn’t fall into place…” she explained.

“After all my track record of professionalism can’t be questioned,” she added.

Kris also said that her decision is a way of putting herself first, saying she has “earned” the right to say no.

“I’m doing what is best for me,” she said. “Simpleng alaga lang sana sa isang project w/ a pressure packed timeline… It just didn’t fall into place. And I know enough to prioritize taking care of me… That’s why I choose to walk away. And put myself first, not because I want to be difficult, but simply because I’ve earned the privilege to say NO w/ courage & dignity.”

Last week, Kris announced the changes made in the film: the inclusion of Kim Chiu and Xian Lim and its title change from “Mr. & Mrs. Split” to “All You Need is Pag-ibig.”

In another post, Kris apologized to Star Cinema chairperson Malou Santos, director Antoinette Jadaone and writer Kriz Gazmen.

“I’m sorry for the stress I put you through, the many wasted hours working on the project, and all the effort you exerted,” she said. “I was wrong to commit to something that in all honesty, I am emotionally, physically & mentally not ready for… #hiyanghiya #IAmSorry”

On the comments section of this post, Kris answered some of her followers’ questions.

Kris also clarified that she did not back out of the film because she’s threatened by the film entry “Pabebe Love” which stars Vic Sotto, Ai Ai delas Alas, and the “Kalyeserye” love team Alden Richards and Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza.

Kris added she has already settled the issue with her bosses in private, and that she has already apologized to them for her Instagram rant.

A follow up question pops up and he was asked when will he know if he has feelings for her:

“Malalaman mong mahal ka niya kapag mahalaga ka na sa kanya and when she gives time. Mahal mo nga, pero susmaryosep, lagi kang nagtatrabaho, lagi kang out of town, lagi kang may project, lagi kang may shoot. Hindi totoo yun, hindi mahal yun. Pag binibigyan ka ng oras, mahal ka nun.”

Straight from Alden’s mouth, now you know.
