Newcomer AJ Raval does not find it worthy to react on those who are critical of sex comedies, branding these movies as offensive or distasteful.
“Wala akong reaction. Wala akong pakialam sa mga negative stuff. Mas nag-po-focus lang ako sa mga positive,” she said during the online press conference for the movie “Shoot, Shoot!” last Friday, Oct. 1.
(I have no reaction. I don’t care about negative stuff. I only focus on the positive.)
Raval, who stars in the movie opposite rapper Andrew E. also thinks that the proliferation of sex comedy movies has something to do with technology, since most everyone now has smartphones.
“Lahat gumagamit ng cellphone, ng internet, lalo na ngayong panahon ng pandemya, ng lockdown. Walang pinagkakaabalahan ang mga tao. Nasa bahay lang sila at puro phone lang. Siguro doon siya naging trend,” she explained.
(Everyone uses cellphones, the internet, more so now due to the pandemic and lockdowns. The people have nothing to be busy with. They’re stuck at home with their phones. That’s the reason why it trends.)
Raval was first introduced in Viva Films’ “Paglaki Ko, Gusto Kong Maging Porn Star” starring Alma Moreno, Rosanna Roces, Ara Mina and Maui Taylor.
Meanwhile, when asked about her ideal man, Raval said she does not care too much about looks.
“Number one sa akin is responsible. Siyempre, ‘yung funny, yes, mas gusto ko ‘yung funny. Mas naa-attract ako sa funny,” she said.
(Number one for me is being responsible. Of course, someone funny, yes, I prefer a funny guy. I get more attracted to that.)
Raval recently admitted that she and actor Aljur Abrenica, who has separated from Kylie Padilla, are currently seeing each other. JB
