Friday, June 24, 2016

Jodi Sta. Maria will be caught in a love triangle between Richard Yap and Ian Veneracion in Star Cinema's upcoming movie The Achy Breaky Hearts.

It can be remembered that Jodi formed good tandems with Richard and Ian in separate television shows. Both tandems earned their own fans and are all very excited for this upcoming film. 

"The Achy Breaky Hearts" follows the story of Chinggay (Jodi Sta. Maria), a jewelry shop manager, is one of the single women in their 30’s who feels the pressure to find love. She goes out on dates with men but none of them seem to make the cut. You may blame her high standards but the pain from her previous relationship could also be affecting her judgment on men. Now, her love life is suffering a drought for seven years.

Everything changes when suddenly, two men are interested to be with her. Ryan (Ian Veneracion) and Frank (Richard Yap).

Chinggay finds herself torn between two kinds of love. Will she choose one over the other? Or will she realize that the love that she needs won’t come from either?

As early as now, Teams JodIan (Jodi-Ian) and JoChard (Jodi-Richard) have been active in social media to campaign for their favorite tandem to end up in this movie.

During the Grand Presscon of The Achy Breaky Hearts, Jodi said that she is very grateful and thankful to ABS-CBN for trusting her and giving her projects that really motivates her to be a better actress on each project. Up until now she can't believe that her tandem with Richard Yap and Ian Veneracion was a big hit and she is also thasnkful to all her supporters that even though she is being paired with different actors, they're still there, supporting her every step of the way.

The lead stars Ian Veneracion, Richard Yap, and Jodi Sta. Maria revealed what makes them feel "kilig" since they have been making all their fans "kilig" for the past few months.

Ian, having his own brand of humor said, "Siguro 'yung description ng kilig 'yung pagkatapos mo mag-jingle no?" But on a serious note, he said, "Ako siguro 'pag 'yung kausap ko sweet sa akin. 'Yung may mga pahabol na tingin."

Richard said that he always looks in the eyes. "Sa akin siguro is when someone looks at you at nakikita mong may love sa mata niya. Kikiligin ka," he related.

Jodi, on the other hand, is more on the appreciation side. "Nakikilig ako when people appreicate me and the work that I do," she said. "And also 'yung mga simple blessings in life."

Moreover, co-stars Sarah Lahbati and Beauty Gonzalez and director Anotinette Jadaone also revealed what makes them "kilig." "Everything makes me kilig. Tititigan lang ako, jusko tumaas na balahibo ko. Madali ako kiligin just by saying 'Good morning'. My BF, sabihan niya akong good morning, kilig na ako," Beauty said.

She added, "People telling me I look good now, kilig na ako. 'Yun everything makes me kilig lalo na kung mahal mo magsasabi sa'yo."

Sarah wants someone who is affectionate to her, meanwhile."Ako kinikilig ako sa affection. Kapag kasi minsan 'pag matagal na kayo magkasama, minsan ang nangyayari nawawala 'yun. So kinikilig ako kapag constant na andyan 'yung affection at tsaka 'yung care."

Direk Tonet, who transcends her "kilig" to the audience, said "Unexpected na gestures. Basta unexpected."

Award-winning director Antoinette Jadaone, who worked for the first time with Richard Yap and for the second time with Ian Veneracion and Jodi Sta. Maria, shared her working experience with the three.

" Sobrang mabait [nila]. Wala akong sakit ng ulo sa set. Sobrang gagaling po nila," Direk Tonet said. She added, "Silang tatlo parang 'yung characters na cinreate namin ni Yoshke [Dimen], nabigyan nila ng buhay kasi nabigyan nila ng sariling atake 'yung characters nila. Kaya naging collaborative 'yung story."

"Usually kasi mas kinikilig tayo sa mas batang love teams eh. Kaya masaya ako ngayon kasi nabigyan ako ng chance na gumawa ng proyekto sa age na ano... Age natin. Mas mature na age ng Pinoy," she said, laughing.

Direk Tonet said that it is a "more mature" kind of kilig. "Ibang klaseng kilig po binibigay nila," she said. "Pero na-realize ko 'yung kilig na pa-tweetums age at kilig ng age ng Jodi-Ian-Richard, pareho lang pala. Pareho lang 'yung kilig na maibibigay nila. 'Yung kilig nila, 'pag pinapanood mo sila, parang 15 years old. May ganung klase ng kilig pa pala na sila lang nakakapagbigay."

"Based po sa mga comments and reactions online, parang iba't ibang age po. 15 [years old] pataas. May titas, may lolas, may high school, may college, may yuppies. So in fairness din naman sa kanila."
