Mother Lily Monteverde On Director Mike De Leon's Accusations Against Her Re 'Sister Stella L': 'Ayokong Pumatol. Worst Movie Pala Niya, Bakit Gusto Niyang Ipa-Restore?'

WE HAD DINNER with Mother Lily Monteverde and some friends at Gloria Maris recently, then a few days later, we bump into her at Jean Garcia’s restobar. She’s very pleased with the good feedback that her movie starring Kiray Celis, “I Love You to Death”, is getting.

“Maraming may gusto kay Kiray at ang dami niyang publicity, kaya feeling superstar na siya,” she says. “They say she strikes them as the female version of Rene Requiestas. Gusto ko rin si Enchong Dee. Napakabait. Everybody loves him sa set kasi very professional at magaang katrabaho.”
Is it true she was able to get the service of Piolo Pascual to do a movie for Regal soon? “Nag-meeting kami, but nothing is final. Marami kasing requirements ang ABS. Gusto nila co-production with Star Cinema at iba pa. Pero sana matuloy.”

What can she say about the complaints of Director Mike de Leon on the restoration of “Sister Stella L”? “Ay, huwag na lang patulan yan, ayoko,” she says emphatically. “Sabi niya, he considers it his worst film daw. E, bakit gusto pa nila i-restore? Worst film pala. Basta, ayokong pumatol. Kapag nagsalita ako, pagagalitan ako ni Roselle.”
