Real-life couple Kim Molina and Jerald Napoles shared what they loved the most about each other during the press conference of their upcoming movie #Jowable, which was written and directed by the talented Darryl Yap.
In the said film, Kim will play Elsa—an NSBSc(no boyfriend since birth) lass who’s already desperate to be in a romantic relationship. But fate constantly keeps her from having one. Thus, her big question is, why is she unloved?
But unlike her role in the movie, Kim is blessed with a loving long-time boyfriend. She even admitted that through time she falls more and more for Jerald, whom she says is one really brainy fellow.
“Jerald is very smart. He is one of the few people that I could talk to hanggang umaga,” Kim revealed. “Kasi ako madaldal po talaga ako, nerd ako. Kumbaga nakilala po ako ng mga tao na bubbly, minsan shu-shunga shunga sa mga roles ko pero as a person I was very studious n’ong nasa school po ako, very nerdy.”
She went on: “Ganoon din po siya (Jerald). May mga topics po kami na napapahaba po namin, may mga conversations po kami na umaabot na po ng umaga. Mas doon po kami nag-jive dalawa.”
The comedienne also hoped that people will get to know Jerald in the same way that she knows him.
“And paulit-ulit ko pong sasabihin Jerald Napoles is one of the most intelligent comedians in this country and I am proud of it. Hopefully, lahat po ng mga tao makita po kung gaano siya katalino.”
Jerald, for his part, admits that Kim changed him for the better.
He said, “Lagi ko sinasabi sa lahat ng presscon is, she makes me a better person. Kasi Tondo boy ako, so may certain gaspang ako ng ugali na minsan magagamit mo sa industriyang ito.”
He went on: “Pero si Kim kasi maganda ’yong upbringing niya tsaka she’s a bit sheltered abroad so alam niya ’yong tamang pag-uugali na dapat gawin. So may nababaril sa mga ugali ko na hindi ko nakikita dati.”
For the record, Jerald also made it clear that they have been together for five years and he also revealed the reason why they never really announced their relationship to the public before.
“People are asking na ‘bakit ngayon lang kayo nag-out’ or ‘kayo na pala bakit hindi namin alam’. Dati kasi hindi kami ’yong tipong ‘tayo na, ngayon ha official, tandaan mo ’yong date na to.’ nagkataon siguro na ayaw namin pangunahan ’yong isa’t-isa.”
Jerald added that they want to keep their relationship as private as possible before.
“And basically ako din, noong una from the 200,000 plus followers [sa social media], mas gusto ko na ’yong 1000 people muna na ka-close ko ang makaalam [ng relationship namin] than posting it, bragging about it and then later on madaming problema.”
#Jowable also stars comedians Cai Cortez, Kakai Bautista, and Chad Kinis. It screens nationwide on September 25.
