Female cast members of the upcoming thriller movie “Block Z” crack pieces of fortune cookies open. Maris Racal is struck by the aphorism, “Lack of willpower has caused more failure than lack of intelligence or ability,” as she sometimes feel scared of voicing out her innermost thoughts.
“Character is what you know you are, not what others think you are”, says Ina Ramundo’s ‘fortune’ which she opts to refute. The actress thinks she is more drawn to the old saying, “What you see is what you get”.
Meanwhile, Julia Barretto agrees that “giving vent to irrational anger would be equivalent to harming oneself,” as what her fortune cookie says. “I personally never keep any anger in my heart and choose my battles because spending so much anger on something is harming my energy,” she adds.
Julia, Ina, and Maris became really good friends while filming the thriller movie, “Block Z.” And just like any other girl gang, they bond on the set by talking about random topics like beauty and love life. Ina is glad that her younger co-stars trust her with the matters of their hearts. Maris and Julia feel comfortable with Ina because of her genuine motherly care.
When asked if boys also have their own version of girl talk, the ladies say that they have never encountered a nosy guy. Ina thinks men would rather bond over playing video games than tackle issues. “They would either play games or play girls,” quips Julia.
On the topic about love, Julia describes herself as sacrificial and she doesn’t regret giving her all when in a relationship. Ina reveals that she quitted smoking because of the person she loves and she would let go of all her vices if needed. Maris confesses that she is willing to give up everything for love and she would fight hard for the one who owns her heart. Boy Abunda agrees that nothing feels better than falling in love. At the same time, he reminds Maris and Julia to surround themselves with people concerned enough to tell when to slow down.
A strong believer of forgiveness and closure, Maris is open to befriending an ex even if the process may take some time. Julia agrees, adding that turning a bad romantic relationship into a beautiful friendship is a sign that both parties have moved on. Ina thinks otherwise. She isn’t friends with any of her exes but she also understands the need for showbiz ex-couples to be in good terms.
On closures, Ina and Maris look at it as an essential part of moving on, while Julia feels that there is no need for a post-breakup talk. “Sometimes, not having closure is already a closure,” Julia asserts.
