On May 31, Sue Ramirez and Diego Loyzaga revealed behind-the-scene bonding for their latest movie, How to Love Mr. Heartless.
During the media conference for How to Love Mr. Heartless, Ramirez disclosed that she ‘ruined’ Loyzaga’s diet while filming for their Vivamax movie.
“May isang beses, hindi na ito sa set, well sinira ko ‘yung diet ni Diego. Sabi niya ayaw niya daw kumain pero nilatag ko lahat ng food sa harap niya, tapos hindi rin niya natiis ‘yung sarili niya, kumain din siya.
“Pero, inaasar ko lang naman siya, kasi palagi, kasi nga very conscious siya, kasi nga galing siyang U.S. Tapos sabi niya nag-gain daw siya, eh ang ganda-ganda pa rin naman katawan niya, so inaasar lang namin siya, nialatagan namin siya ng pagkain. Tinitignan namin kung kakagatin niya. So may one time na na-break ko si Diego, so masaya na ako doon.”
As for Loyzaga, he recalled how Ramirez called out those who were ‘pasaway’ on set.
“Ito si Sue, she stood up, the scene was like a classroom and it was like 2 in the morning– 3 in the morning, we were all tired. Dayang umaga ‘to. We had all the lights on, it was hot inside, walang aircon, ang ingay, ayaw tumahimik ng ibang tao. Ang iingay nila, I was outside talking to our production design, and bigla akong narinig na may sumigaw, ‘Ano ayaw niyo bang ayusin? Kami, inaayos namin ‘yung trabaho namin.’
“Sabi ko ano ‘yun. Ako naman, sugod ako sa loob ng classroom, sabi ko, ‘anong nangyayari dito, ba’t parang may nag-aaway.’ Siyempre resbak ako kay Sue, resbak na resbak ako. Handa na ako– sinong umaaway kay Sue? ‘Yun pala may mga pasaway may mga ma-iingay and I saw that Sue was doing that for Direk, and I had Sue back also.”
Ramirez then highlighted the tight bond they had as a cast for the movie.
“Pero ‘yun nga sa set, kasi ‘yun nga everybody has each other’s backs. Everybody was willing to help each other. Si Direk pag nakikita niya rin na napapagod na ‘yung mga tao, bigla ‘yang magpe-play ng kung ano-anong kalokohan.
“Si Diego kumakanta kasama ‘yung mga ex niya, or ako. So ganon ‘yung feel sa set, ‘yung pakiramdam mo mga kabarkada mo lang ‘yung nandoon. Hindi ka–wala kang dahilan para mahiya, wala kang dahilan para mailang.”
Loyzaga expressed how much he liked their group because of the bond they made while filming the movie.
“And sabi ko, ‘Damn, I like this group.’ We have each other’s back. That really molded us or bonded us a group.”
Directed by Jason Paul Laxamana, Loyzaga and Ramirez star in the bittersweet romantic movie How To Love Mr. Heartless.
The film premieres on Vivamax Plus on June 10, 2022, and streams worldwide on Vivamax on June 17, 2022.
