“I’m a jerk. I’m sorry.”

This was what actress Kris Aquino posted on her Instagram on Wednesday, confirming reports that she begged off from her upcoming movie with Mayor Herbert Bautista.

The movie, entitled “All You Need is Pag-ibig”, is supposed to be one of the official entries at this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival.

On the post, Aquino tagged Star Cinema’s managing director Malou Santos, the movie’s creative writer Kriz Gazmen and director Antoinette Jadaone.

Aquino further expressed her apologetic message: “I’m sorry for the stress I put you through, the many wasted hours working on the project, and all the effort you exerted. I was wrong to commit to something that in all honesty, I am emotionally, physically [and] mentally not ready for.”

Not mentioning which specific movie, the “Queen of all Media” earlier announced on a separate Instagram post that she is backing out of a project because of some conflict in schedule with the cinematographer she wants to work with.

“This is about a film, and just 1 request on my end after endless compromising to honor my commitment… But [with] 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,’” she said.

“And yet, I was a good sport and said GO, let’s do it. But tonight I got word that the only person I asked for, my cinematographer just couldn’t do the project because of scheduling conflicts—I said NO. His job was to hold a mirror to my heart [and] soul for you to see in our movie, and I knew I’d be in good hands,” she explained.

Aquino was referring to Neil Daza, the cinematographer of her latest movie “Etiquette for Mistresses” which has been warmly welcomed by moviegoers.

For Aquino, Daza did a great job in bringing the best out of her in “Etiquette for Mistresses.”

Aquino said she knows how to prioritize taking care of herself. “Simpleng alaga lang sana sa isang project [with] a pressure packed timeline. It just didn’t fall into place.”

“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 [with] courage [and] dignity,” she concluded. TVJ

But tonight I got word that the only person i asked for, my cinematographer just couldn’t do the project because of scheduling conflicts- I said NO… 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… In tackling this movie, I was taking the leap of faith of reopening already healed wounds- until I realized tonight, what for? After all my track record of professionalism can’t be questioned, my Kris Tv family, close friends & I worked hard to have 68 block screenings for #EtiquetteForMistresses starting tomorrow- I believe I’ve done my utmost… And now i’m doing what is best for me. 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. Good Night. THE END.
