Newcomer Angela Morena has revealed that it was her aunt, actress Lara Morena, who encouraged her to go sexy in the movies.
A Viva artist, Angela shared the information during the online press conference for her latest movie, “X-Deal 2” last Wednesday, March 9. Lara, who has starred in several sexy drama films, is the fiancee of news anchor and host Paolo Bediones.
“Actually, wala pa akong napanood na sexy movies niya. ‘Yung mga napanood ko lang is ‘yung kasama sina Redford White, ‘Tatlong Tatay Kong Pakitong-Kitong,’ ‘yung kasama niya si Michael V, ‘yung ‘Bakit Mo Sinaktan Ang Puso Ko.’ Kasi bata pa ako noon, bawal pang ipanood sa amin ‘yung mga sexy (films),” Angela said of her aunt Lara.
(Actually, I have not yet seen any of her sexy movies. What I was able to watch was her movie with Redford White, “Tatlong Tatay Kong Pakitong-Kitong,” and the one with Michael V, “Bakit Mo Sinaktan Ang Puso Ko.” I was still young then, we were not allowed to watch her sexy movies.
Being already of age, Angela wants to watch her aunt’s sexy films, adding it was actually her aunt who encouraged her to try showbiz via the sexy route.
“Actually, siya ‘yung talagang nag-push sa aming magkakapatid to do sexy roles. Siya ang nag-encourage sa amin na it’s a good start, it’s a stepping stone for us to be in showbiz. Talagang napaka-supportive ni tita Lara sa amin. I couldn’t be more grateful to have her talaga [as my tita],” she said.
(Actually, it was her who pushed me and my sister to do sexy roles. She was the one who encouraged us that it’s a good start, it’s a stepping stone for us to be in showbiz.)
Now that she’s into doing love scenes, Angela also disclosed that she learned not to get carried away while doing it.
“Sa mga intimate scenes, sa mga love scenes, hindi naman ako nadadala as Angela Morena. Kasi nga po, isa sa mga natutunan ko talaga is kapag in character ka, you have to be in character,” she explained. “Kasi kapag ikaw nadala ka, natamaan ka, ikaw ‘yung talo.”
(In intimate scenes, in love scenes, I don’t get carried away as Angela Morena. This is because one of the lessons I learned is when you’re in character, you have to be in character. It’s because if you get carried away, if you get affected, you’re the loser.)
“X-Deal 2,” which also stars Rob Guinto and Josef Elizalde, is directed by Lawrence Fajardo and premiers on March 25. JB
