A throwback photo of Kapamilya stars and BFFs JM de Guzman and Arci Munoz appears on Tonight with Boy Abunda. The picture, showing JM and Arci in their innocent looks was taken way back in 2005 at the University of the Philippines were they became classmates.
According to Arci, she initially perceived JM as gay during their younger years but this impression has faded away when JM had a girlfriend. JM admits getting a lot of “gay” misconceptions before but he knows for sure that he is a straight guy.
JM, on the other hand, marked Arci with her timid and bashful character. But he finds it amazing that Arci has developed a distinct on-screen presence enveloped with a certain angst that belongs only to her. However, when behind the cameras, Arci still remains the ‘mahinhin’ girl he saw before.
Fourteen years later, the former classmates took on the lead roles in a romantic-comedy film entitled “Last Fool Show”. The two also worked together on the Kapamilya series "Pamilya Ko".
