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 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.

In an earlier interview, Aquino said Bautista was a personal choice because she wants her show to offer new content for viewers.

He also described Bautista, who is also a professor at the University of the Philippines, as a “very well-respected” member of the academe.

“Meron din siyang mga best-selling books na nasulat na,” Aquino added.

Bautista has written both self-help books “Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo” and “Help!!! Ayoko na sa Syota Ko!”


The “Mistress” in Kris Aquino reconsiders role in “Etiquette for Mistresses”!

Earlier this year Kris Aquino accepted the role of a mistress in the movie adaptation of “Etiquette for Mistresses: And What Wives Can Learn From Them”, but backed out for the reason that she would then breach a contract from her endorsements since she will be playing the mistress role.

But now Krtis turned 360degrees as she announced early this week on “Aquino & Abunda Tonight” that she can now star in the film adaptation of Jullie Yap Daza’s book “Etiquette for Mistresses: And What Wives Can Learn From Them.”

The film adaptation will be directed by Chito Roño and could see Kris reunite with Claudine Barretto, her co-star in “Sukob” in 2006.

 Kris will surely do justice to the role, don’t you think?

Kris Aquino on movie with Bistek: “I deserve to experience that happy ending- kahit sa pelikula man lang.”!

Kris Aquino and Herbert Bautista movie is now in the works ans it will be helmed by no less than the Hugot Queen director Tonet Jadaone!

Screen shot 2015-05-18 at 2.57.52 PM

Kris received a lot of negative comments upon posting the photo above confirming that they will indeed be in one movie. It was a big headline then that their short lived romance ended abruptly.

Kris enumerates the reasons why she agreed to do a movie with ex-BF Herbert on her Instagram with the caption:

I read this quote many months ago, thank you @noringai for sending it… I respect that some of you disagree with my choice, but maybe you should also respect my reasons?
1. It’s just a movie, but we are being given that rarest of opportunities to answer all our WHAT IFs- through the eyes & expressed by the words of the#hugotqueen Direk @tonet_jadaone.
2. The storyline is realistic, family centered, funny, yet still uplifting & inspiring.
3. Come on, a Star Cinema movie is the way we wish life could be: poignant, emotional, lovely, memorable, and with a heart tugging soundtrack…
4. Because I’m not the same Kris I was 15 months ago, and I think I’m a more mature, positive, and “live each day as it comes” version of me.
And 5. Because even if it will only happen in a movie, I deserve to experience that happy ending- kahit sa pelikula man lang.

That’s the last I have to say about our movie, as I said, we don’t start shooting until July. 😊 GOOD NIGHT.

Are you excited to see Kris and Herbert in a romantic movie with a happy ending?

With the following captions:

“I kept quiet & just prayed. Left & right paulit ulit na walang ginawa, walang effort, walang malasakit, patalsikin, walang nagawa si Noynoy,” patuloy niya.

“Our whole family prayed, of course for Mary Jane and her family, but I prayed deeply for the Holy Spirit to guide my brother & his government to find a way to spare the life of a fellow Filipino. To find a reason compelling enough for the Indonesian govt to give Mary Jane Veloso a reprieve, and it came because of testimony regarding the greater problem of HUMAN TRAFFICKING. I prayed for God to bless our relations w/ Indonesia… Australia, Brazil, Nigeria, and even an Indonesian died by firing squad.”

Kris Aquino reveals how Herbert courted her and how she was dumped on her website!


From my perspective, it has never been RECALLING the fights, the breakup, the disappointment over avoidable interviews that made me cry. It was remembering the happy moments that were so fleeting, but so special because they were so “normal”.
He went into my A&A dressing room on our 2nd telecast and said: “Ms. Aquino, may I have your number?”
He brought me a cheeseburger w/ no onions, fries, and a small Coke on my birthday last year. I’ve never had that meal again from that fast food because I’m now with the opposing Pinoy Food Giant (takot mag violate ng contract) and partly because it will just never taste the same again.
We watched the midnight screening of Divergent and I’ve never gone back to the cinema where we watched.
He gave me this funny looking, ugly cute figurine holding a heart, and I used to have it beside my bed, and now I have it kept inside my night table drawer.
He sent me a lot of Gatorade, boxes of it, and I’ve never had the sports drink again.
We went to 2 Starbucks with drive through windows, and I’ve also never gone back to those places.
We spoke of building a life together, actually set a time frame, in this restaurant in Greenbelt that I frequented because of their steaks and burgers, but I’ve also never eaten there again.
I cut off more than 18 inches of my hair because I wanted to forget how I must have looked with hair all over my face & pillow, when he used to surprise me by waking me up and bringing me my venti nonfat latte with no foam, just because his day would be so hectic and early morning was the only time he could see me, regardless of my still being fast asleep.
Broken hearts retreat to where they can be safe again, locked away for nobody to ever get too close to again…
This is the first time i’ll publicly acknowledge this, because I can now recall with absolutely no bitterness or regrets; on the first Friday of April nearly a year ago during merienda, he said he was tired, he didn’t want to play games, he was tired of chasing and of running away, and he wanted to feel secure with someone he could grow old with.  He said, walang romance, walang lokohan, walang bolahan. Okay na raw ba ko to marry him kasi nga PAGOD na sya?
I remember laughing and saying that was probably the least romantic proposal any woman has ever received, but because we were so similar in our weirdness, I was in agreement; I wanted to grow old with him because I knew we’d never be bored conversing, and maybe this was where God led 2 individuals who deserved a chance at life long companionship with maturity, and full acceptance of equally colorful pasts.
We went separate ways because he had an appointment with an old professor he had kept close to, and I went to 6 PM Mass and prayed that this was what would be best for us.
The next day he had dinner with my family, and I cried during our heart to heart talk after that first attempt at introducing him to my family.  I said I realized he never said he loved me, he was simply tired, and I didn’t want to be his version of Salonpas, Alaxan, Ben Gay, or a massage. He cried too and said he was scared, overwhelmed, afraid of being branded a “user” when he has given the majority of his life to public service, and maybe we should take a step back.
We went to Mass together Sunday because we had made a pact that praying together will be our priority, but again we parted immediately after Mass because he had friends to meet up with… I remember going home, alone because my 2 sons were going to have dinner with James and Mic. And I prayed and said, please God strengthen us, cement our bond, and protect our peace. And I remember thinking, sana umabot sya sa point that he would be comfortable enough to let me be more a part of his world.
I made the mistake of speaking about him the following night on A&A. The next day, over the phone he broke up with me, right before Bimb’s 7th birthday party.
In time we healed, and became friends again. Comfortable to catch up over the phone every few weeks or so.
The last time I cried about him was Christmas Eve. I remembered an earlier agreement that we had made, when he asked early in our relationship how we’d deal with the holidays, I said that my non-negotiable was Christmas Eve Mass with my family, but Christmas Day was for him & his siblings & his kids. And I went to sleep with tears quietly streaming down my face, sad that we hadn’t made it.
So can I be truthful, I hibernated February 15, and listened to this song over and over. I kept to myself and slept most of February 15. And I was proud of surviving.
Inayawan nya ko, I’d like to think not me the actual person, but the complicated baggage that comes with having a relationship with me.
He called 4 times that Sunday, the day after my birthday, and I just didn’t pick up. Bimb saw his name flashing on my phone, and he told me: “Mama, go ahead talk to him because when you talk to him, you get happy. But remember after, you get so sad and I hate seeing you cry.”
And BOOM, that was my wake up call, my long avoided wisdom coming from the innocence of my 7 year old.
I realized as much as I want us to be friends, we can’t. There were just too many promises that my heart so desperately wanted to believe in. And continuing the friendship will continue to make me long for what wasn’t meant to be.
And I want Bimb to see by my example, that his feelings come first. A 7 year old shouldn’t be subjected to being the protector of his mother’s fragile feelings.
And maybe this was what this whole experience of trying to love again was meant to teach me, to be HUMBLE that for a man not ready to commit, I WILL NEVER BE ENOUGH.
Yes in all honesty, I still pray for someone who can be my strength. I still pray for someone to talk to at the end of a long day, someone who will listen, and someone who will also teach me new things, challenging my mind, and mirroring my values. Someone to pray with and pray for. Someone I can trust with all my fears, someone who accepts my past, and still looks forward to our future. And someone who won’t be tired about love, but will accept, nurture, and treasure what we will share.
But then, maybe Mom raised me to stand alone, and own my strength. And maybe the rejection I went through is a blessing, because I needed to feel the hurt, in order to learn to be less selfish and more compassionate, to empathize more readily with those suffering from all kinds of pain.
I needed for my love to be declined for me to value those who accept my love with so much gratitude, and I needed to realize this important life truth: True love doesn’t find you, neither do you find it. You build true love together, and you can’t do that when you’re tired, jaded, or weary. Love is built by those who have inspiration, determination, fortitude, trustworthiness, loyalty, courage, childlike faith, openness, enthusiasm, and enchantment with what is, plus all that will be.
To now paraphrase my mom: And love can only make you the best possible version of yourself.
I was spared birthday blues maybe because God said: NATUTO NA SYA, OKAY NA YAN, SIGURO NAMAN MAG-IINGAT NA…

With the following caption:

“I just came from 1 of my favorite Churches on my way to A&A. I said sorry to God for my sin of pride. I can be impulsive & overly emotional. But I also believe I am never spiteful & always respectful. Above all, I know how to take responsibility for my actions… Before leaving for work, I felt my guardian angel telling me to text @officialjuday. Naglakas loob ako & prayed for the best. Thank You God for answering my prayer. #mutualrespect”

Derek Ramsay a long time friend of Kris Aquino defended her from bashers and also her brother PNoy  from the January 27 incident to his non-appearance at the arrival honors for the slain policemen.


This is what Derek said:

“Kris is very close to her family. And when she reads messages that her brother should die, that’s personal. It’s okay to have an opinion but some people just take it too far, saying all these hurtful things against her like it was her fault.”

On PNoys attending the inauguration of a Mitsubishi car plant in Laguna instead of the arrival of the #Fallen44 at Villamor Air Base:

“We really don’t know much about this touchy issue. The President has his reasons. We put him there. Let’s trust him to lead. If we can’t trust our leader, then nothing will happen. We just can’t turn our back on him. He can’t do it all by himself.”
