‘Bourne’ star urges Oscar winner to visit PH

CESAR Montano in “Hitman”

Seems “The Bourne Legacy” has won at least one famous tourist for the Philippines, long before the movie debuts onscreen.

If plans push through, the new visitor is a hunky Oscar winner. A “Bourne” Actor convinced Oscar Hunk to visit the country—specifically, its famous beaches. OH is expected to fly in this week and visit a posh resort outside of Metro Manila accompanied by another “Bourne” Star.

No need to be suspicious. BS’ partner has just arrived and will join the other two.

More pliant hunk

No wonder Controversial Celeb is not as hurt as everyone thought about Young Lover’s indiscretions.

Turns out, while YL was carrying on with Perky Mestiza, CC was seeing Younger Hunk! Yup, playboy YL is yesterday’s news.

YH is fresh and more flexible, being a new age fitness freak. Moreover, CC and YH reportedly went on a holiday recently.

PAULEEN Luna says she’s not pregnant.

But wait, wasn’t YH once involved with Imported Anchor?

Shrill hunk

Naïve Production Assistant barged into the dressing room shared by Hunky Star with Handsome Actor.

PA saw HS  in an unguarded moment—screaming, swooning, chattering excitedly on the phone with a presumably gay friend.

Noticing that PA was stunned speechless, HA casually remarked: “Don’t mind him. He’s really that shrill in person.”

Hidden desire

They’ve been competitors for a long time; who knew they could’ve been sweethearts, too?

Senior Actress once sat beside Beautiful Rival on a 10-hour flight. Though pitted against each other in the biz, they were friends in real life, so BR didn’t mind traveling with SA.

CRISTINE Reyes: No plans of marrying soon (photo: cristinereyesphotogallery.blogspot.com)

While BR was sleeping soundly, however, SA feasted on the sight of her seatmate’s snow-white neck and … it was quite a ravishing view. Yup, SA swings both ways.

Leftovers

Colorful Celeb often brags about the fact that Greying Husband was previously involved with Screen Goddess and other society girls.

“My rivals were rich and famous,” CC quips.

SG’s supporters have another take on that. “CC was content with leftovers … second-hand items.” Ouch.

Aretha on Whitney

NEW YORK— Aretha Franklin says she believed Whitney Houston had overcome her demons and was ready for a comeback.

SARAH Geronimo tries to put a lid on “kilig.”

Interviewed on NBC’s “Today” show on Friday, Franklin said  fans should remember Houston for her artistry and not focus on the challenges she faced with substance abuse. AP

Top of the Talk Shows

For those who missed last weekend’s TV gabfests (and why we are moved, if we are moved):

Alden Richards on staying grounded despite recent success: “Doon tayo nagustuhan. Kung ano ’yung nasimulan natin, pananatilihin po natin … Pinapangako ko po ’yan.” (Sadly, it’s not always as simple as that.)

Annabelle Rama on Nadia Montenegro accusing her of power-tripping: “Baka siya ’yun dahil nagmamadali siyang matapos ang kaso … Nadia … aabutin tayo ng 10 years, ’Day!” (Or the end of the world, whichever comes first.)

Nadia Montenegro on allegedly calling Annabelle Rama a pimp: “Wala akong sinasabing  ‘bugaw’ … maybe by instinct it comes out of her mouth. Dininig ng Diyos … hindi ako nagtitirik ng tatlong kandilang itim sa Diyos ko. Baka iba ’yung diyos niya.” (Leave me out of this.)

Pauleen Luna on speculations that she’s pregnant after fainting on “Eat Bulaga”: “Hindi po ako buntis … May history po ako na hinihimatay. It’s not the first time.” (And maybe not the last, you mean?)

Mark Bautista on why he kept mum on the issue linking him to Piolo Pascual: “Pangit kung magsalita pa ko…”  (Hindi naman; try mo lang.)

Mark on people questioning his sexual preference: “Hindi mo maiiwasan, so tanggapin mo na lang na ’yun talaga ’yung pwedeng sabihin sa ’yo. Umpisa ko pa lang sa show biz,  ’yun na ’yun, eh… At first, medyo taranta ako. Parang shucks, ba’t ganito? Ba’t ganyan? Pero ngayon parang, ‘Okay.’” (Shucks. Tagal na ’yan?)

Cristine Reyes, asked if she plans on marrying soon: “Hindi pa! Hello, kaka-23 ko pa lang!” (Worse things have happened in the biz.)

Andi Eigenmann, asked if she’s afraid to love again: “No, I’m not, because I believe that there will be someone who will not hurt me, and who will love me for who I am, who will never turn his back on me for no reason.” (Rest ka muna, ’te.)

Cesar Montano on piracy: “Kung merong guilty diyan, tayong lahat … The Filipino should understand na kada bumibili ka, tinutulungan mo ’yung magnanakaw.”

Anne Curtis, asked if boyfriend Erwan Heussaff gave her an expensive gift for Valentine’s Day: “Hindi naman mahal! That’s the one thing I love about Erwan. It’s always about the simple things, the sentimental things.” (Expensive—or not expensive—is a relative term.)

Gerald Anderson on going on a group date with Sarah Geronimo on Valentine’s Day: “Single siya, single ako, wala namang masama du’n. Kung magkaroon ng opportunity in the future ulit na lalabas kami, oo naman, wala namang masama du’n … The truth is sobrang special si Sarah para sa ’kin dahil mas nakilala ko ’yung pagkatao niya. And sana, mas makilala ko pa.” (One group date pa lang ’yan ha?)

Sarah Geronimo on Gerald Anderson saying that she’s special to him: “Sinasanay ko nga po ’yung sarili ko sa kilig, eh. Para ’di ako madala! Dapat matibay na ako diyan! Hindi, ayun po, na-a-appreciate ko po nang sobra.” (Kiliiiig!)

Rufa Mae Quinto on being linked to Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho’s breakup: “Bakit ako? Wala akong koneksyon. Walang connectivity!” (Bakit nga kaya ikaw?)

Luis Manzano on people saying that love life and a successful career don’t mix: “I beg to differ. Wala namang kailangang may kapalit. Ang sa akin, kung oras mo naman talaga para umibig at para magkaroon ng napakaraming trabaho, oras mo talaga.” (We’ve heard this said about death.)

    Can we stop this drum-beating promotion for this Hollywood movie?
    Obviously, the Entertainment Section writers are running out of stories to tell.
    I don’t think that the producers of the movie are flattered by this impertinent news…
    Please stop patronizing this over-rated film….

       eh di sige mang teban, mag report ka sa inquirer ng mga entertainment news dyan sa barangay mo. kung wala ka naman ma-ireport, eh manahimik na lang. at di mo ba narealize ang tourism potentials ng movie na eto? well if you, mang teban, can bring in more tourists than this movie can, then sige, go ahead and clamp news bout this movie. if not, manahimik ka na lang uli, mang teban.

        Owws. talaga?
        Paniwala mo Bourne Legacy magdadala ng tourists sa Pinas?
        Bakit kaya ang mga kontra sa comments sinasabi na tumahimik na lang ang nag-komento?
        Di po ako Tourism Secretary…marami na ang nagsisipuntahan sa ating bansa dahil kilala naman ang mga magagandang tanawin at masayang puntahan.
        Marami na nagpelikula dito sa Pinas na produksyon ng mga banyaga…di naman ang mga ito naging daan ng pagrami ng turista..yan ang katotohan,
        Palagay ko lang isa ka sa mga Pinoy na kinikilig kapag nakakakita ng Caucasian  o taong puti ang kulay ng balat…
        sanhi ito ng colonial mentality na dapat mawala na sa kaisipan at kaugalian ng mga Pinoy.

        Habulan sa ibabaw ng mga bahay sa masisikip na lugar, matrapik at para raw may katotohanan, pinakita ang mga lugar na maraming mahirap at masalimuot ang kapaligiran..Iyan ba ang magdadala ng turista?
        Masuwerte na kung sasabihin sa Pilipinas ang setting…..di po natin alam.
        Nabanggit na sa balita na ang mga eksena sa Intramuros ay para ipakita na ito ay sa South America…papaano kung ang ibang eksena sabihin lang na “somewhere in Southeast Asia”? Ano napala mo, bok?
        Napakababaw ng pananaw mo, bok….mababaw.

        ikaw na rin ang nagsabi hindi ka tourism secretary, kaya wala kang alam kung may epekto sa tourism industry ang pag-shooting dito ng mga pelikulang katulad nito. 
        hindi pa nga napapalabas yung pelikula, nagbigyan ka na ng judgment. hintayin mo muna lumabas ang pelikula saka ka magkomento.

    In the Philippines, it is all about show. Hard truth, but truth.
