McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson may look in love in their new movie, but off camera, they said it was difficult.

De Leon and Joson, more popularly known to fans by their love team name McLisse, admitted in a “Tonight with Boy Abunda” guesting on Monday, Jan. 14, that there was tension between them when they started filming their upcoming movie “Sakaling Maging Tayo.”

Joson explained that when they started shooting the film, they were already going through something, adding that their relationship was like a roller coaster.

When both were asked if it came to a point where they thought of backing out of the film, both said yes.

“No matter how hard it was during the film, pilit ko pong inintindi (I was trying to understand) to anyone around na I have to do this because it’s a blessing (the film),” Joson explained while fighting back tears.

The two also shared their current status: they are now “ex-lovers.”

Do they talk to each other? Yes, but only in joint interviews.

Still, they are  hopeful they can be friends. “May pinagsamahan kami eh,” De Leon said. “Naging importante siya sa buhay ko eh. Parang ang sakit naman sa feeling na matapos yung trabaho namin na di kami okay.”

(We’ve had a relationship. She had an important part in my life. It hurts that after we finish our job, we’re not okay.)

“Sakaling Maging Tayo” opened in theaters Wednesday, Jan. 16.  Katrina Hallare /ra
