HOW DOES JAKE Cuenca feel now that he turned out to be Angeline Quinto’s Ninong in doing a hot kissing scene? “Yes, ako nga raw ang nagbinyag sa lips niya,” he laughs. “Siempre, gentleman tayo so inalalayan ko siya nang husto. We had to do it a couple of times kasi iba-iba ang anggulo.
Okay naman, we were able to please our director, Joel Lamangan. Ako naman kasi, when I accept a project it, I really love and give it my all. I really guided Angeline and held her hand in every sequence, encouraging her na kaya natin ito. Inilagay ko sa siya sa pedestal while we’re shooting the movie to make her feel that she is safe with me and that she can trust me.”
Has he found a new love since she broke up with model Sarah Grace Kelley? “No, it’s not a priority right now. Trabaho muna ang focus ko.”
Is there a possibility for him to fall for Angeline? “Saludo ako sa spirituality niya, sa pagiging conservative niya. Yung ginagawa niyang panata sa Black Nazarene, bilib ako roon. But I’ve resolved that at this point, I’m not ready to have a girlfriend anytime soon. I’m in that point in my life where I’m rebuilding, changing a lot of things. I’m doing a new soap na triathlete ang role ko at isinasapuso ko talaga yun, ‘Ikaw Lang ang Iibigin’, with Kim Chiu, Coleen Garcia and Gerald Anderson. I’m also producing and starring in a new movie, ‘Requited’, for Cinemalaya Filmfest. So doon muna ako.”
