NAG-DALAWANG-ISIP PALA sina Anne Curtis at Sam Milby bago nila tinanggap ang Babe, I love You. Nasa puso’t isipan pa rin nila ang kirot na dulot ng kanilang pag-iibigan noon.
“To be honest, yes! Siyempre nandu’n ‘yung fear to work with him again. At that time, we owe it to the fans who waited so long. ‘Yun ang first step namin and it’s really a journey talaga, and thanks to Direk Mae for helping us out in the personal department para matuloy ‘yung movie,” mabilis na sagot ni Anne.
At first, naging asiwa sa isa’t isa sina Anne at Sam habang nasa set, kuwento nila. Hindi nagpapansinan, parang nag-iiwasan. Palibhasa, matalik na kaibigan nila si Direk Mae, naayos ang gusot sa dating magkasintahan.
“Si Direk Mae, kilalang-kilala niya kami, as in, from the start. She knows our love story on reel and real life talaga. I think, she knows how to handle us. We’re very, very open with Direk about everything so, Direk knows how to handle us, how to help us out for the movie and sa personal,” wika ni Sam.
Sa sariling obserbasyon naman ni Direk Mae kung nagkabalikan na nga sina Anne at Sam, comment niya: “They will always remain special… parang special talaga sila sa isa’t isa. We can see naman how they are now. Kung hindi special … it’s just that alam na nila kung ano ‘yung mga mistake nila before. Now, they take it day by day na parang it’s better, it’s good that things are okay now. It’s peaceful and they’re getting to know each other better as friends. You never knew kasi what’s the future has store for them. I think it’s a fact, they are special to each other, it’s not deniable.”
Inamin ni Sam na deepest love niya si Anne dahil matagal na ‘yung relationship nila. Nag-start ito sa Maging Sino Ka Man, 4 years ago.
“With 4 years of history, never naman kaming umamin. Hindi kami super open book when it’s come to that. Siguro, that’s the way we like to keep it. Kasi, there was a time na masyadong naging open and it caused a lot of problems. Basta ako, I’m happy now, Sam and I our okay now, it’s a fresh start. Who knows what will happen? We both admitted to each other that we will never close our door pagdating sa…” hirit ni Anne na alam nating very much in love sa guwapong actor.
Inamin nina Anne at Sam na Babe ang tawagan nila nu’n time na ginagawa nila ang teleseryeng Maging Sino Ka Man. Maging sina Shaina Magdayao at Angelica Panganiban, alam nila ang tungkol dito. Ang nakapagtataka lang, bakit ngayon parang ang hirap nilang sabihin sa isa’t isa ang katagang ‘Babe, I Love You’ ?
“Oo, kasi hindi pa right time… siguro if the right time comes and it will happen, buong-buo kong sasabihin, ‘di ba? As of now, let’s see what will happen. Siguro, kasi kami ni Sam ‘yung love-hate… so, ‘yun ang nakikita sa amin, the whole war. This movie becomes a journey to patch things, day by day, no expectations. I could say this movie, may pagka-true-to-life siya,” paliwanag ni Anne.
“Same with Anne, when the right time comes, you know,”dugtong naman ni Sam na forever niyang mamahalin ang dalaga.
“She has that mark on me… she taught me a lot and she has that special place in my heart palagi.”
Say naman ni Anne, “Always and forever… those two words stick together, ‘di ba? The story and the experience na pinagdaanan namin ni Sam… ‘yun ang istoryang maikukuwento ko sa mga anak mo. Those stories na ikukuwento mo for the rest of your life. Always and forever love in that kind of way, hindi na kayang maulit ‘yung ganu’n.”
Nakaiintriga raw ang love scene nina Anne at Sam, very passionate. Naiiba raw ito compared sa sexy scene nila sa Maging Sino Ka Man.
“Ibang klase… tahimik, hindi ‘yung parang nagmamadali, ‘yun lang ang puwede kong sabihin,” matipid na sabi ni Direk Mae.
Well, let’s wait and see kung worth watching nga talaga!
