Cathy Garcia-Molina revealed something about Richard Gomez
Prominent filmmaker Cathy Garcia-Molina revealed that she felt “kaba” towards actor-politician Richard Gomez when they did the movie She’s Dating The Gangster.
During a recent episode of Secret Movie Files on the YouTube channel of Star Cinema, Direk Cathy recalled the time when she had to set aside the past conflict that she had with Richard for the sake of the movie project that featured reel and real-life sweethearts Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla.
“I think it’s no secret na kami ni Richard had a falling out,” the filmmaker revealed. However, at that time, they had to find an actor who is fit to play the father of Daniel’s character and they could not think of anyone else than Richard Gomez.
“Nanalo yung need for the movie and parang sinabi ko sa sarili ko na siguro panahon nang magkabati kami ni Richard,” Direk Cathy said.
She also recalled that first shooting day and she was really nervous thinking about how she will deal with the actor-politician. “Noong dumating, alam mo yung kaba ko parang ‘ayan na direk, andyan na,” the filmmaker shared.
Direk Cathy added that she had no idea how to go through with that first shooting day with Richard. Fortunately, it went well. It turns out that the Ormoc City Mayor already forgot that conflict between them. With this, the director felt relieved as if the burden in her heart was taken off.
There was even an instance that Direk Cathy requested Richard to shoot some scenes for her as she needed to go to the editing. The actor gladly did that for his director.
Apparently, the movie became a way for their reconciliation, and Cathy Garcia-Molina said that her friendship with Richard Gomez was rekindled after that. To prove that they were better after that stint, they did another movie together titled Three Words to Forever.
