Enchong Dee bares nastiest rumor about him
Since Cupid is all set to go “target shooting” in a few days, Regal Entertainment sets the Valentine mood in advance via its movie “Elise.”
Janine Gutierrez and Enchong Dee headline the dramatic-comedy film, which opens on Feb. 6. It’s more than just a love story that is based on real-life events. It is also about the journey of childhood friends, Elise (Janine) and (Bert) Enchong. They grew up together, yet their dreams made them grow apart. But fate lets their paths cross again. Same feelings, different situation.
Can their puppy love take them to the soul mate level?
Love is not just finding the one who’s right. The time must also be ripe.
Here’s my chat with Enchong:
What was the nastiest rumor about you? That I sleep around. I just laughed it off because I’d rather eat, sleep and watch movies than do that.
Tell us about your first love experience. The perfect adjective to use would be nakakakilig because when we’re younger, we experience a lot of firsts. And the thing is, any feeling that is new to our hearts is always memorable and powerful. And this feeling eventually changed my view toward love forever.
How would you define a soul mate? A soul mate is a person with whom we have an unexplainable connection with, and someone we want to have for the rest of our lives. They can be a friend, a sibling or someone we have a romantic relationship with, etc.
What’s your fave line and scene in your movie? The scene in the bed where Elise and Bert were sleeping and Bert said the line, “Kung ako na lang kasi sana ang minahal mo, ’di ka na iiyak pa.”
Any funny off-cam moment with Janine? I always ask her what time she wants to go home, then we connive to hasten the “pack-up” moment (laughs).
What’s something you want to do this 2019 that you have never done before? Learn to make pasta in Italy.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve done for love? Wait outside her house till she got home just to get a chance to talk to her.
What do you find hard to understand about women? Why do they need so much makeup in their life (laughs)?
If you get a tempting offer from GMA 7, would you transfer? If I feel that I am no longer needed in the company I work for, I’d think about it. I love and need my job as an actor.
What’s the biggest lesson you learned in 2018? Stand for what is right, not for what is popular.
