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.

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?

The movie is conceptualized by Coco, as they were already getting serious with the movie Coco thinked twice since he is required to cross dress and act the gay role. he said: “Ay, hindi ko kaya ‘yan!”

He almost backed out to the project, but then as an actor he gave it a go.

This is what Vice said of his role:

“Sabi ko sa kanya (Coco), ‘Alam mo, ‘pag nagpa-girl ka naman, hindi ka pandidirihan ng mga tao, kasi maganda ang mukha mo.”

The yet to be titled movie will be helmed by Wenn Deramas. Shooting will star next month and will be probaby shown in October.
