Alden Richards admits pressure after success of ‘Hello, Love, Goodbye’
Even though it’s been four years since the film “Hello, Love, Goodbye” hit theaters, Alden Richards said that he was dreading accepting new movie projects because of the record-breaking success of his movie with Kathryn Bernardo.
During a 24 Oras interview last Sept. 15, Richards admitted that such was his dread that he felt pressure to set a higher standard for himself and the new projects he would choose to star in. Thus, when the offer for the movie “Five Breakups and a Romance” with Julia Montes came along, he knew that he was setting his career to new heights.
“I was fearful, coming from the success of ‘Hello, Love, Goodbye.’ Siyempre, it broke records… Natakot po ako to accept projects in terms of movies kasi lalo pa’t ‘yung pagtingin ko sa details ng gagawing projects is medyo, of course, tumaas din ‘yung standards ko (I was scared of accepting movie projects, especially as I’ve been very particular about certain details since I set my standards higher),” he added.
The actor previously expressed his admiration for his leading lady’s acting prowess at a media launch in April of this year.
Richards will star as Lance, while Montes will portray the role of Justine. It is set to hit theaters on Oct. 18.
“Hello, Love, Goodbye” was the first team-up of Richards and Kathryn Bernardo which became the “highest-grossing Filipino film of all time,” per Star Cinema in September 2019.
Interestingly, Bernardo and Montes starred as the leads in the 2010 teleserye “Mara Clara” and the 2011 film “Way Back Home.” EDV
