Sharon Cuneta & Robin Padilla Talk About Working With Each Other Again Now That They're Reunited In 'Unexpectedly Yours' After 16 Years


SHARON CUNETA and Robin Padilla did three films before: “Maging Sino Ka Man” (1991), “Di Na Natuto” (1993), and “Pagdating ng Panahon” (2001). After 16 years, they’re now reunited in “Unexpectedly Yours” that opens in theaters tomorrow. So how is it working together again?
“Robin is one of my favorite leading men and it’s always a pleasure working with him,” says Ate Shawie. “We think alike, have the same sense of humor, tawa lang kami nang tawa pag magkasama kami so it’s nice to work with him again.”

“Ako naman, tagahanga pa rin ni Ma’am Sharon,” says Robin. “Idol ko pa rin siya. Lagi pa rin akong natutulala sa kanya. Sa kissing scene namin, sabi ko, mahahalikan ko na naman si Sharon Cuneta! Di na ko nakaalis dun sa fan mentality ko sa kanya. Pero ang totoo, replacement lang ako rito dahil ang nakarating sa’kin, si Gabby Concepcion ang unang kinonsider, pero tumawag sa’kin si Ms. Malou Santos ng Star Cinema at sabi, kailangan ka ni Sharon. Dalawang pelikula ang ginagawa ko ngayon sa sarili kong produksyon, ‘Bad Boy 3’ at ‘Marcelo del Pilar’, pero dahil kailangan ako ni Ma’am Sharon, ito na ang priority ko.”

“Itong project natin, totally different,” Sharon says. “Ginawa talaga ito para sa atin with Joshua and Julia.”

“So lumabas ang katotohanan,” adds robin. “Talagang gumawa sila ng bagong konsepto para sa’min. Hindi yung si Gabby ang gaganap dahil ako lang ang makagaganap nito, wala nang iba,” and he turns to Sharon, “Sa lahat ng inibig mo, walang makakagawa nito kundi si Robin lang. Yan lang kasi ang mayabang. Walang makakaganap ng ganyang kayabang.”

Sharon agrees. In the story, Robin is an OFW, a seaman who’s been his entire family’s breadwinner for many years so he remains single. He first fell in love with Sharon when they were school mates. But Sharon is in Section 1 and he’s in Section 6, so he never got to express his love for her. Now, they meet again when Sharon is feeling so low after her marriage has crumbled and she’s being eased out of her job. And that’s why the film’s title is “Unexpectedly Yours”.

And how is it working with their younger co-stars, Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto? “Kinikilig ako sa kanila. Alam ko kung paano sila nagliligawan!” Sharon reveals “Mahal na mahal nila ang isa’t isa. Grabe! Ang tawag ko sa kanila, B1 and B2, meaning Baba 1 and Baba 2. Kaya pag nakita ko silang wala yung isa, sasabihin ko, where’s your Baba?”
