STAR Cinema decided to shorten Piolo Pascual and Angel Locsin’s searing love scenes in “Love Me Again” (Land Down Under).
“They cut two scenes. Malungkot talaga ako, but then it’s their decision,” revealed director Rory Quintos, regarding Star Cinema’s judgment.
“Ito na ang pinaka-daring na love scene na nagawa ko in my 16 years as a director,” she said. “At maganda talaga. Both Piolo and Angel really look good in it.”
Both actors expressed dismay, just like their director. But they respect Star Cinema’s decision.
Piolo said the particular scene was hard to shoot. “Hindi ito nangyari sa kama o sa kwarto. Sa stable it, so makati kasi maraming dayami,” he divulged.
Angel said she personally did not find anything “malaswa” in the scene, adding that it was beautifully shot. She was also profuse with her praises for her leading man, saying she never felt he took advantage of her in their love scenes. “Piolo is such a gentleman. Talagang inaalagaan niya ako,” she said.
