Kris Aquino, nag-back out na sa MMFF movie nila ni Mayor Herbert Bautista

Kris-AquinoUMAYAW NA si Kris Aquino sa Metro Manila Film Festival movie niya with Mayor Herbert Bautista.

Sa kanyang caption sa photo niya sa kanyang Instgaram account ay tinag niya sina Malou N. Santos, managing director of Star Cinema; Kriz Gazmen; creative writer of  All You Need Is Pag-ibig, her movie with Mayor Bistek; and Antoinette Jadaone, director of the movie,  ay sinabi ni Kris na, “I’m sorry for the stress I put you through, the many wasted hours working on the project, and all the effort you exerted… I was wrong to commit to something that in all honesty, I am emotionally, physically & mentally not ready for…”

Earlier, nagbigay ng hint si Kris na hindi na niya gagawin ang movie nila ni Mayor Bistek, “This is about a film, and just 1 request on my end after endless compromising to honor my commitment… But w/ a storyline that would lay bare all my insecurities- the treatment given to me had the harsh but realistic words: “Sya si Kris- ang babaeng laging di pinipili… ”

“And yet, I was a good sport and said GO, let’s do it. But tonight I got word that the only person i asked for, my cinematographer just couldn’t do the project because of scheduling conflicts- I said NO… His job was to hold a mirror to my heart & soul for you to see in our movie, and I knew I’d be in good hands… And it just couldn’t fall into place… In tackling this movie, I was taking the leap of faith of reopening already healed wounds- until I realized tonight, what for?

“After all my track record of professionalism can’t be questioned, my Kris Tv family, close friends & I worked hard to have 68 block screenings for #EtiquetteForMistresses starting tomorrow- I believe I’ve done my utmost… And now i’m doing what is best for me. Simpleng alaga lang sana sa isang project w/ a pressure packed timeline… It just didn’t fall into place. And I know enough to prioritize taking care of me… That’s why I choose to walk away. And put myself first, not because I want to be difficult, but simply because I’ve earned the privilege to say NO w/ courage & dignity.

Good Night. THE END.”
