Liza and Enrique Answers Their “Why’s”




MANILA, Philippines – Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil asked each other’s “why’s” in a recent press conference and here goes the conversation.

“Bakit ako ang nagustuhan mo sa lahat ng pwede mo namang magustuhan?” the first question raised during the press conference of their new movie, “My Ex and Whys.”

Enrique quickly replied with: “Eh nalaman ko na crush mo ko!”

But the actor also quickly said “Joke lang!”

“Dahil siguro iba ka sa kanila kasi may ibang tao, ‘pag nakikilala ko, parang may ibang anyo, parang may costume silang sinusuot. There’s like some defense for people not to take them the wrong way. Kung papaano sila mag-act in the house, iba sila ‘pag nag-act in public. Pero ikaw, hindi ka naman siguro ganun. Kung ano s’ya sa bahay, ganun din s’ya sa labas. You don’t have to make tantsa or to guess who she is,” he explained.

On the other hand, Enrique too has this "why" to throw at Liza.

“Bakit ako ang naging pinaka-close mo?” said Enrique.

Liza’s quick answer was, “Eh s’yempre, ikaw ang nakakasama ko parati! May choice pa ba ‘ko?”

“Alam mo naman yun e! Pareho tayo ng handler noon. Nagkatrabaho tayo sa ‘Just the Way You Are,’ tapos nagka-show tayo, ‘Forevermore.’ S’yempre magkasama tayo araw-araw, naging close tayo, nag-uusap tayo. Tapos, araw-araw trabaho natin magkasama. Naging close talaga tayo…Ganun naman talaga nagsimula yung friendship.”, she added.

“Pero ang feeling ko, parang na-in-love ka na talaga sa’kin!” Enrique butted on.

If two people keep on asking whys, then there is still something going on between them, Enrique added.

“Kaya di pa rin sila nakaka-move on. ‘Di mawawala yung baggage kung alam mong meron pa (kayong nararamdaman sa isa’t isa). It takes time,” he asserted.

He said he was confident to note that he had no "whys" to ask his exes. “Kung meron, e ‘di hindi ako nakapag-move on!”

Moving on depends on a person, he said. “It depends on you if you still have an unfinished business or kung may kailangan ka for you to move on.”

He also asked their fans to move on from their demand to have a second book for “Forevermore” because so far, they have no plans to do it.

He said “Probably, in the future, or another love team will remake it for us.” “Siguro, ‘pag matanda na kami, ‘pag ako na si tatang,” he jokingly said.

Somebody in the press conference joked that if the series would have a sequel, it could be titled “Forevermost.”
