Bold and confident, Arci Muńoz had no qualms in giving it all for her love scene with Gerald Anderson in their new movie.

Muñoz and Anderson reunites onscreen via Star Cinema’s latest offering, “Can We Still Be Friends”. Over a year ago, their experimental team-up on “Always Be My Maybe” was a certified hit, with their love scene in that film having earned praises.


But despite the level of intimacy they showcased in that previous film, Muńoz declared that her love scene with Anderson in “Can We Still Be Friends” is by far the wildest she’s ever done.


Kailangan ko talaga mag-shot (I needed to take a shot),” she said at the press conference for the film earlier today.

Muñoz revealed that she had to down a shot of vodka to give herself an extra boost to execute the scene. Anderson also did so to ease up the tension. The revelation led journalists to further ask about the details of the new love scene.

Ito lang ang masasabi ko: ‘yun yung pinaka-challenging na kailangan ko gawin sa buong pelikula, actually sa lahat ng nagawa ko, ‘yun yung pinakamahirap na i-arte,” Muñoz said.

(This is all I can say: it was the most challenging scene I had to do in the movie. Actually, out of everything that I’ve done [in my career], it was the hardest scene I had to do as an actress.)

She even gushed about sweating profusely while she was doing the scene. The level of intimacy they projected even affected everybody in the production, said Muñoz: Madaling araw na kasi ‘nun at nagising lahat ng tao sa set. Ang hirap po kasi labanan. Ang ganda talaga, parang ayoko matapos.” 

(We shot the scene during the wee hours. It woke everyone up. It was hard to resist. It was really beautiful, as if I didn’t want it to end.)


Directed by Prime Cruz, “Can We Still Be Friends” will hit theaters nationwide on June 14. JB
