Why Ryza prefers to be in a relationship
As the countdown to Valentine’s Day begins, do you know where your heart is? Whether Feb. 14 will be a red-hot or a red-alert day for you, Viva Films and Idea First Company’s “Mr. and Mrs. Cruz” offers some answers to your heart’s crazy questions.
It is written and directed by Sigrid Bernardo, the same director who gave us 2017’s highest- grossing film, “Kita Kita.”
The charming film shot in postcard-pretty El Nido is topbilled by Ryza Cenon and JC Santos.
Since they’re from rival networks, it’s quite a delight to watch their first onscreen teamup. The chemistry is undeniably there.
They portray strangers who go soul-searching (or is it soulmate-searching?) in Palawan.
Their unconventional love story flourishes. But soon enough, trouble in paradise arises as their views on love, marriage and the “Big C” (commitment) clash.
Whether you’re single, taken or in a “complicated” status, Cupid highly recommends that you watch the film.
Here’s my chat with Ryza:
What’s your dream wedding? Simple and intimate, with the man of my dreams.
Do you prefer being single or in a relationship? I prefer being in a relationship, because I can define myself better with a partner. There are more things that I can accomplish when I’m inspired by my partner.
What scares you about commitment? When my partner is not committed to me as much as I am committed to him—that’s what scares me.
What did your movie make you realize about relationships? Self-worth is more important than any relationship. You need to love yourself first in order to love someone fully.
What was the most important lesson that 2017 taught you? To keep both feet on the ground at all times.
What’s your shout-out for 2018? Please be nice to me and send more blessings my way, 2018.
