Kapamilya star and Star Magic artist Enchong Dee admitted that he’s vocal about issues especially those that are timely and important.
This resulted to the hate messages especially from supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte, whom statements he often criticized. He has also been labeled as a “dilawan”, which is a term coined for those who are against the current administration.
Others have then said that he’s just fishing for attention.
But in the press conference of his upcoming movie with Janine Gutierrez, titled Elise, he said that he doesn’t take the comments too seriously.
“This is a democracy. May karapatan tayong sabihin kung ano ang gusto nating sabihin. Pilipino naman ako bago ako artista. Hindi naman porke’t artista kami, wala na kaming karapatang magpahayag ng aming damdamin.
“Hindi naman pakikisawsaw sa isyu iyong makialam ka dahil karapatan at tungkulin mo iyon bilang mamamayan lalo na kung may gusto kang ipaglaban.”
On the other hand, he admitted that he really looks up to his leading lady as she makes work easy.
“She’s a natural actress. Napakagaan niyang katrabaho at wala kaming ilangan. Iyong level ng comfort namin kumpara noong una kaming magsama sa Lila, kakaiba.”
The Valentine movie by Regal Entertainment will be in cinemas starting February 6.
Vhong Navarro and Lovi Poe can be an odd pair for a comedy film, yet they are a perfect match for Woke Up Like This. It’s the first time Lovi has done a comedic role after focusing on heavy drama.
Definitely! The two have worked together already in ‘Shake, Rattle, & Roll 14’ so it was not a start-from-scratch story for them.
However, Woke Up Like This is the complete opposite of a well-loved horror series in the country. In this movie, Lovi and Vhong shared a different side of them as their characters switched personalities.
Lando, an aspiring athlete trying to make it big in basketball, switched lives with Sabrina, an international model.We are used to seeing Vhong portraying cross-dressed characters, however, it would be Lovi’s first time playing a Tomboy role, which makes it exciting for the audience to watch.
With its trailer raking to 7 million views, the movie tells a story of a couple who switched lives because of an old woman trying to teach them a lesson.
The Temptation Island actress was very open to admit that she really had a hard time portraying Lando’s character.
“Kailangan ko talagang maging as Vhong so nakabantay talaga [directors] sa akin. Sabi ko, sabihin niyo talaga sakin ‘pag mali ah. Kasi first time ko mag-cocomedy,” she detailed.
Despite it all, the cast is very hopeful that masses would support this film. Woke Up Like This is under Regal Entertainment, Inc. and will start screening on August 23!
Watch the full trailer here.
So what are you waiting for, guys? Go now to the nearest cinemas and support Lovi and Vhong for their first comedy film together.

Still reigning as the local showbiz’ comedy queen, Ai Ai De las Alas portrays a playful nanny in latest Regal Entertainment‘s Mother’s Day Special, “Our Mighty Yaya“.
In this new film outing, Ai Ai plays an almost similar part to her previous roles, portraying a nanny, Yaya Virgie, a hideous-looking woman from the province. This 2017 Philippine comedy film is written and directed by Jose Javier Reyes.
The story revolves with Virgie who was hired as a nanny for a rich family in Manila. The movie also features Zoren Legaspi and Megan Young who played the parents of the children whom Virgie is taking care of. The kids who turned Virgie’s world upside down were played by Sofia Andres, Lucas Magallano, and Alyson McBride.
Premiered last May 10, it grossed more than ₱6 million pesos in the box office on its first day. Despite the cliche plot of the film, the Best Actress of Queens World Film Festival showed that she can still make box office movies.
Since the trailer of the film was posted on Facebook, it has generated 1.5 million views. Although the plan of making it to the 2016 MMFF was destroyed, Regal is still optimistic about their new offer.
When asked if what the movie is all about, direk Jose Javier Reyes said:
“I [want to] do a movie that pays tribute to these people who we think are just there because of the salary. It’s about the love they give to the people they live with… Our Mighty Yaya [is about the] men and women who sacrifice [and] give love to other families’ children for them to sustain their own families.”
