MANILA – Heart Evangelista was all praises for her “Trophy Wife” co-star Cristine Reyes, who went daring in their upcoming movie produced by Viva Films.
At the sidelines of the press conference for the said film, Evangelista said Reyes deserves to be where she is now because she saw first-hand how passionate the Kapamilya actress is with her job.
“Grabe siya. Bilib talaga ako sa kanya. She is where she is today because she could do certain things I cannot do,” she said referring to Reyes’ daring scenes in the movie.
“I don’t think it’s something I’d also want to do personally. I’m very liberated with my personal life. I’ve been very open about my ex-boyfriends, whoever I dated. But when it comes to certain things, there are just certain limits that I cannot pass. Iwan na natin yun kay Cristine,” she said.
Saying Reyes did “a very good job,” Evangelista added: “Sobrang ibang klase siya talaga, kapag tanggal, tanggal talaga. She’s really good.”
Real-life trophy wife?
Meanwhile, Evangelista said she only wants to be a “normal wife” once she finally decides to settle down.
“I definitely want to play an active role [as a wife]. I’ve missed a lot growing up. I didn’t get to travel, I didn’t get to experience college, normal life. Definitely, yung chapter na yun sa buhay ko, I really want to experience it,” she said.
This, however, does not mean that she will be leaving show business, she said.
“Maybe I wouldn’t do that much soaps anymore. Maybe I’d venture into hosting. I’ve always wanted to have that normal life pero hindi naman ako aalis ng showbiz,” Evangelista said.
Asked if she is already headed to becoming a real-life wife, Evangelista said: “Definitely papunta na ako doon. We are just taking our time. We are very open about our relationship. We talk, we are honest to each other. We plan things out. It’s just… basta.”
Evangelista has been in a relationship with Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero since 2012.
