Daniel Padilla explains why he turned down a role in Hello, Love, Goodbye.
In an interview with the ‘King of Talk’ Boy Abunda, Daniel Padilla revealed that he was supposed to be the partner of Kathryn Bernardo in the blockbuster movie Hello, Love, Goodbye, before it was offered to ‘Pambansang Bae’ Alden Richards. He even discussed the HLG role with Kathryn after their phenomenal The Hows Of Us. But then they decided to take a break from doing projects together.
“Napag-usapan namin ‘yun after ‘The Hows Of Us’ na magpapahinga muna kaming dalawa. Hindi siya mabilis na proseso (na parang) ‘okay, gawin mo na, gawin mo na siya.’ Hindi ganun kadali. Isa siyang mahabang proseso. It’s something new sa amin and parang out of nowhere si Kathryn nagtatanong kung paano ‘to kung ready na ba siya and mahaba siyang usapan.”
Daniel also clarified that he never felt jealous towards Alden but it was the first time they were apart for a month and he was worried.
He said, ““Masyadong mababaw ang selos, hindi ako nagselos, hindi siya selos, it’s just different. It’s a different feeling. Kasi ang selos makukuha mo lang ‘yan kung saan-saan eh. Ito ibang usapan siya eh. Doon nagkaroon ng security, doon kami lalo naging tight ni Kathryn, nang dahil doon.”
Daniel admitted that it wasn’t easy for him being away from Kathryn for over a month that they were filming Hello, Love, Goodbye in Hong Kong. “Noong umalis siya andon ako sa puntong… I was in dark times noong nangyari ‘yun. Hindi ‘yun basta okay lang ako. It was different. Minsan nasa banyo ako for hours lang, andon lang ako.”
He added, “Minsan kasi maiisip mo, ano na nga ba nangyayari doon, di ba?. Hindi naman sa inisipan ko ng masama si Alden, hindi ‘yun. And hindi ko rin naman siya pwede tawagan every time dahil nag-shooting sila.”
