Is Heart Evangelista saying goodbye to romantic comedy? The actress confirmed that she has grabbed the chance to do some tough kicking action scenes in an international film.
Evangelista was in China around January this year. At that time, fans were thrilled as speculations rose that she might be part of the “Crazy Rich Asians” sequel.
However, Evangelista finally shut down the rumor and dismissed the hearsays.
On Twitter, she wrote, “For those of you asking, I am not in China to film for Crazy Rich. I am here for something else – can’t wait to share.”
She, however, confirmed that she will be part of a different international action movie. Speaking with Cinema One, Evangelista said, “Medyo nagulat rin ako sa sarili ko.”
When asked what convinced her to do an action film, Evangelista jested, “You only live once.”
Without dropping hints on the movie, Evangelista shared that she’s not even sure if the film will be shown in the Philippines.
The actress revealed that she put so much preparations for the action film. She admitted that since she has never done an action movie ever, the shooting was a difficult and tiring experience.
Evangelista disclosed that they needed to wake up at 4 a.m. to exercise; adding: “Siyempre nakakapagod kasi iba rin ‘yung hinihingi nilang requirements sa fitness but it feels really good to be part of something.”
Evangelista also said that due to the film, she and husband Senator Chiz Escudero have delayed their “baby plans” for now. They are in no rush.
She added, “Better to finish first what I need to do. Minsan lang din naman may mga opportunities na dumating. So my husband and I agreed na gawin ko muna ang kailangan gawin and then we’ll try again.”
