JLC evasive about rumored romance with Bea

  • Page Views 2562
  • The loudest whisper in town
    is that, finally, John Lloyd Cruz
    and Bea Alonzo have made their
    partnership not only for reel but
    also even off screen. Yes, if we’d
    believe the rumor, then that
    means he has broken up with
    Angelica Panganiban, while Bea hasbea
    called it quits with Zanjoe Marudo.

    The last time we saw JLC withAngelica
    was at the press preview
    of “Honor Thy Father” at Dolphy
    Theater just before Christmas andt
    hey were still so sweet to each other.

    We also saw Zanjoe in a bar
    after the New Year and he denied that
    he and Bea have split. When asked about this at
    the congressional investigation on the anomalies at
    the MMFF, he was evasive.
    This made folks conclude
    that the rumor must be true
    because, if it were not, it’s so
    easy for him to deny that he
    and Bea are now the ones playing
    beautiful music together.

    But we agree with JLC’s declarations
    at the hearing that theremust be positive changes on
    how the annual filmfest is con
    ducted to make it a true festival
    of quality movies and not just a
    flagrant money-making affair for
    producers who come up with
    nothing but commercial flicks.
    As JLC said: “It’s about time na
    gawin nating totoong festival
    ang Metro Manila Film Festival.
    Hindi ito parang venue lang para
    pagkakitaan. Ibalik natin ‘yung
    panahon noon na ipalabas natin
    ‘yung mga importanteng pelikula.”
    He adds that he’s doing this
    not just for their entry, “Honor Thy
    Father,” which was disqualified
    for the best picture award. “I’m
    not saying na kung hindi kami
    na-disqualify, mananalo kami.
    We don’t know that. Wala
    namang nakakaalam nun.
    Pero ang alam ko lang, dahil sa
    disqualification, natanggalan
    kami ng opportunity, ng pagkakataon
    para malaman kung paano mag-perform
    ‘yung aming pelikula sa panlasa ng mga hurado.”

    Well, we just hope the hearing
    will eventually lead to a revamp in
    the way that the annual filmfest is
    now being conducted.•
