Ever since she rose to fame after joining a reality TV show, Cristine Reyes has had her share of leading men. She says, however, that it was the latest one who impressed her most and whom she considers as her best leading man by far.
Cristine, who recently renewed her contract with the Kapamilya network, is referring to none other than action star and “Idol ng Masa” Robin Padilla.
When the 24-year-old actress first found out that the two of them were going to work together for a new project, Cristine shares that she felt excited and nervous at the same time. Although they have worked together before, she says they are not as familiar with each other yet.
Later on, Cristine realized that she had nothing to be nervous about. Members of the production team are actually talking about her and Robin’s unique chemistry. And though she wouldn’t admit it, staffers have also noticed a different glow in Cristine during the shoot. Asked if it’s possible for a girl like her to fall for someone like Robin, Cristine laughs and says, “May asawa na siya eh. Pero kung binata siya, bakit naman hindi, ‘di ba (He’s already married. But if he were still single, then why not)?”
Asked why she thinks many women fall head over heels for Robin, the actress says that aside from his good looks and great-looking body, it must be his interesting personality that women find attractive. “Tingin ko gusto ng mga babae ‘yung macho and true gentleman image ni Robin. Para kasing lagi siyang handang protektahan ka. Pero kahit ganoon ‘yung image niya, malambing talaga siya at maka-kapwa (I think women fall for Robin’s macho and true gentleman image because he seems like someone who’s always there to protect you. But inside his strong personality, he’s really a sweet guy who has compassion for others),” says Cristine.
The sexy actress says she herself witnessed how much Robin values his fans. During their shoot, the actor had many followers who were watching at a distance. Robin didn’t want to disappoint them, so even if it was raining hard, he approached them, joined them for picture taking, and even chatted with them every chance he got.
Cristine further says that she is very thankful for the experience because working more closely with Robin gave her the opportunity to find out for herself why the actor is deemed as one of the country’s best leading men.
“Usually, medyo matagal bago ako mag-warm up sa mga leading men ko. Pero kay Robin, naging komportable naman ako kaagad. Napaka-down to earth kasi niya, saka wala talagang star complex (It usually takes a while before I could warm up to my leading men. But with Robin, I felt comfortable right away. I think it’s because he’s really down to earth and he has no star complex),” she says.
“Hanga talaga ako sa kanya. Sobrang perfectionist niya na bawat take, nirereview niya talaga. Bukod doon, magaling talaga siyang makisama. Lagi siyang handang tumulong sa mga tao. Yung shoot din namin, sobrang aga nagsimula tapos sobrang late na natapos, pero wala kang maririnig ni isang reklamo sa kanya (I really admire him. He’s such a perfectionist actor that he even reviews every take. Aside from that, he’s really great at getting along well with everyone. Our shoot started super early and ended super late, but we didn’t hear him complain),” Cristine adds.
In the end, Cristine says that it was a privilege to work with Robin even just for a while. For her, it was a very worthwhile experience and given the choice, she would want to do more projects with him. She adds, “Idol!”
