WATCH: Kris Aquino gushes that Alden Richards is her local celeb crush
The Queen of All Media Kris Aquino really will be frank and candid when talking about what she likes, particularly men that interest her.
In a YouTube video posted on “The Aquinos” page on Monday, the media personality revealed her celebrity crushes while enjoying merienda at a food court.
Aquino said that while she crushes on “Prison Break” star Wentworth Miller and late actor Paul Walker from the “Fast and the Furious” franchise, her local celebrity crush would be the Pambansang Bae, Alden Richards.
“Kung bata lang ako talaga (If I were still young), si Alden. I love Alden!” she said in delight.
“I’m really a fan. Talagang tuwang-tuwa ako sa kanya, you know. Kasi ang bango-bango niya tingnan, di ba? (I’m really a fan. He makes me so happy, you know. Because he really looks pleasant, right?),” Aquino explained.
She then applauded Richards for his acting in a GMA Network documentary about Martial Law and the “Love Is…” telemovie with his love team partner, Maine Mendoza. Aquino admitted that she watched both films more than once.
Not restraining her “kilig” over the Pambansang Bae, she recalled how they met before he found superstardom through the AlDub phenomenon.
“He was so cute! Because he said, ‘Miss Kris, I’m Alden,'” she remembered, to which she replied that she knows him because she recognized a huge billboard featuring him, which she passed by often.
Aside from Richards, included in her list of crushes are Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves and comedian Adam Sandler.
The media personality, who has quickly developed a cult following on social media, started her own YouTube page as an alternative to appearing in television, from which she’s in hiatus. JB
