Lovi Poe reacts to what Susan Roces and Grace Poe said about her

LOVI POE IS tickled pink that it’s not only her dad FPJ’s widow, Susan Roces, who said some nice words for her but also their daughter, MTRCB Chair Grace Poe-Llamanzares. In a TV interview, Grace said she’s happy with Lovi’s success in her career and wishes her well. Has she met both Susan and Grace? “Yes, a long time ago,” says Lovi. “We haven’t got the chance to meet again recently, but I’m really awed by their kind words for mer. Coming from them, talagang nakakatuwa as they’re two women my late father love so much and who really matter to him. Gusto ko nga sana silang imbitahin sa premiere night ng movie ko, ‘Aswang’, kaya lang nahihiya ako.” Here is a related article where Lovi Poe states she wants to work with Susan Roces.

“Aswang”, which got a B from the Cinema Evaluation Board, will be premiered tonight at SM Megamall and she’s optimistic that viewers will enjoy it. “I have to take my hat off to our director, Jerrold Tarog, he’s young and full of bright ideas. Very cool on the set, hindi nagagalit, laging very calm. At na-play time niya ko. One time, I heard my songs being played on the set sa ipod niya. I like the way he wrote my role in ‘Aswang’. I’m the kind of aswang who feels guilty pag may napapatay siya. Yung first victim ko was a man with a family. So hinanap ko yung asawa’t mga anak niya and I give them food kasi nawalan sila ng ama.”

She’s the busiest actress in films this year. Whereas others have only one or two films a year, she’s now shooting her 6th film this year, the filmfest entry “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow”. The first five are “Valentine Girls”, “Deadline”, “Temptation Island”, “My Neighbor’s Wife” and “Aswang”. What’s her role in “Yesterday, Today”? “I’m the wife of Jericho Rosales at sisters niya sina Maricel Soriano and Solenn Heussaff.”
