Heaven Peralejo not ready to undress in the movies
Even if she had a quite steamy love scene with Ian Veneracion in “Nanahimik ang Gabi,” Heaven Peralejo is not about ready to strip in her future projects.
When asked if she was ready to throw all caution to the wind the way other sexy stars do nowadays, Peralejo said she can’t disrobe for the big screen.
“Siguro ibibigay ko na po sa kanila iyon (Maybe, I will give it to them),” she said during the movie’s grand media conference, Dec. 13.
“I think, when it comes to my craft, siguro parang planado lahat ng ginagawa ko (maybe all the things I do are planned). Whatever I choose, whatever character I put myself into, parang everything is calculated. I don’t think I can see myself in that kind of sense pa. I want to respect also my parents’ opinion. If hindi okay sa kanila iyon, I think I will respect that,” she explained.
But this is not to say that Peralejo did not give her all in portraying her character of Me Ann, the love of Ian Veneracion’s chief character.
“I think I gave my all in this film. What you will see in this film is Me Ann and not Heaven,” she said, noting that she and Veneracion had been very comfortable with each other so that doing love scenes together was not a problem.
“About sa comfortability doon sa pagkandong ko kay Chief, kay Ian (About the comfortability of having Chief, Ian, sit on my lap), kasi he made me feel so comfortable around him. Since we’re comfortable with each other, we get to laugh at each other’s joke. ‘Yung pagkandong (sitting on the lap), it’s work, it’s not malicious,” she said.
“I think iyon ang maganda sa aming dalawa. We have set the boundaries very clearly. Once na nakita kong si Chief na siya, ang bilis kong magpunta doon sa character na Me Ann kasi kaming tatlo, it’s teamwork kasi, eh. Nakakahiya naman sa mga beterano na actor na hindi ko galingan,” she explained. (I think that’s what’s beautiful between [Ian and me]). We have set the boundaries very clearly. Once I saw him as Chief, it was fast for me to get to the character of Me Ann because all three of us, it’s teamwork. It would be a shame to these veterans if I did not work hard.) /ra
