Kris Aquino denied ex-husband James Yap’s claims that they have become good friends.
“No, that's not true,” she said in an interview at the press conference of Star Cinema’s Metro Manila Film Festival entry “Sisterakas” on Saturday, December 8.
She added, “Ayoko magpaka-plastic sa inyo eh. It's easy to tell all of you na, 'Yes, we're friends, we're good and all.' We're not.”
Kris did not give the reason behind their gap. She just said it’s better for them to distance themselves from each other.
A love life, she goes on, is not a priority. She is just focusing on her sons, Joshua and James Jr. or Bimby, plus her career.
“Walang nagpaparamdam. Wala akong ini-entertain. Hindi siya pumapasok sa pag-iisip ko because I know it’s not part of my destiny at this point.”
Her sons’ love is enough for her.
“Siguro, binigay sila sa buhay ko para hindi ko ever ma-feel na may pagkukulang kasi kumpleto naman talaga. Ayaw ko nang maging selfish na hingiin lahat kay God. So, kung hindi niya ako bibigyan ng asawa, boyfriend or love life, I’m really okay.”
Return to comedy
Kris is back to comedy after years of doing drama and horror projects. She plays the brilliant, talented and wicked Roselle in “Sisterakas.”
Kris had one condition in accepting the villain role. She wanted her character to have redeeming value.
Kris shares that her movie with real-life friends Ai-Ai delas Alas and Vice Ganda has solidified their friendship. In fact, Kris, Ai Ai and Vice Ganda have a 25 percent investment in the movie.
“Sobrang tagal na kaming magkakakilala at iba na talaga ang bonding namin. Ang maganda sa aming tatlo in this point of our lives, nagsusuportahan kami talaga, magbigay ng moments sa isa’t isa. Spoiled ako sa kanilang dalawa kasi maalaga sila,” Kris said.
