Kris backs out of MMFF movie

TV host-actress Kris Aquino revealed that she will no longer be part of the Metro Manila Film Festival movie "Sisteraka," which also stars her friend Vice Ganda.

Kris tweeted on Sunday, September 23, that she already "backed out" from the movie, after realizing she cannot work "7 days a week" without affecting her other projects. Aside from the daily talk show "Kris TV," she’s also in the TV drama "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw."

"Sisteraka" is Star Cinema and Viva Films’ entry to the 38th MMFF. It also stars Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo.

"I didn't want to talk about work this weekend. But YES it's true I backed out of the MMFF movie w/ Vice Ganda," Kris tweeted.

She added that it’s important for her to take care of her voice since she’s a talk show host. 

"If u remember I lost my voice the other week & I realized I can't possibly work 7 days a wk & not have all my projects suffer. In the past my talk show was always the 1 that suffered because of my "acting" dreams. More than anything else, I am a talk show host & I can't be effective w/ no voice," she said.

Kris started taping “Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw" with Robin Padilla and Anne Curtis.

"Our teleserye Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw has a story so close to my heart, about a family, about sisters, & what toll cancer takes not just for the victim but for all those she loves," Kris noted.

"I made difficult choices but I have peace in my heart. Growing up means accepting I'm not superwoman, and realizing just how blessed I am to have what's here & now".

    When I decided to do "Dancing With The Stars," I knew it was a reality show, but I’m used to working on movies where nothing is very real. Although acting helps in being a great dancer there is no getting around the reality of learning to ACTUALLY dance! So yeah, I knew on "Dancing with the Stars" we would have to dance, but part of me figured that with some great camera tricks or some secret dance shortcuts there may be a sort of easy route through this. …

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician.

In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
