Piolo teases new action flick with Kyle, reunites with ex-child star Eliza on “Magandang Buhay”

Let your hearts be stolen anew by Piolo Pascual as he gets to showcase his other side — chill and ‘makulit’ — in this episode about food, fitness, and his past and upcoming projects.

Piolo is so magnetic that even his random opinion on lumpia can draw a debate. It might sound funny or trivial that his tweet about his preference for 'lumpiang togue 'over 'lumpiang shanghai' drew mixed reactions from netizens, but this only reflects his impact on fans. Speaking of lumpia and veggies, Piolo shares his diet and his comfort food from mangoes to sweet potatoes – find out more in the podcast!

From food, we tackle fitness. How does the Sexiest Man in The Philippines maintain his fit body? The key is to get moving a lot. He’s into many sports like boxing, which he started training for to enhance his agility after his movie with Judy Ann Santos titled “Bakit Di Totohanin” (2001) where they played boxers.

Piolo will flex his action chops anew in the upcoming film “The Ride” with Kyle Echarri, who we think takes on his magnetic charm. With nothing but good words for his younger co-star, Piolo shared that viewers are about to see a different side of Kyle. After his impressive performance as young Richard Gutierrez in The Iron Heart, Kyle is going to deliver more action in The Ride. Kyle plays a car racer while Piolo portrays a con man in their movie.

The two heartthrobs built instant on- and off-cam rapport since they have known each other prior, as Kyle is one the closest friends of Piolo’s son, Inigo Pascual. “We were always together. We would work out every day. We would prepare. We would just really focus on the role, so mas na-enjoy namin. Mas nalaro namin ‘yung mga eksena namin,” shared Piolo.

In this episode, the hunk actor also reunited with Eliza Pineda, who played his daughter in his other iconic movie with Judy Ann titled “’Til There Was You,” which is celebrating its 25th year. They recalled their experiences on the set, with Piolo praising Eliza for being a good actress at a young age despite the pressure and challenges. As for Eliza, “’Til There Was You” was special, as apart from being her first movie and first major role, it jumpstarted her bigger career as a child star. In case you’re wondering how she’s been after leaving the limelight and if she has plans of going back to showbiz, you’ll find the answers in the podcast.
