Janine Gutierrez said ths half joke to Paulo Avelino
The two celebrities are now the lead stars in the series Marry Me, Marry You. Back in 2019, they already had their first project together and that was supposed to be for the First Summer Metro Manila Film Festival in 2020. However, this did not push through as lockdown was implemented due to the pandemic.
Based on the article in PEP, during a recent interview, Janine Gutierrez revealed that even back then, she already presented herself to be the leading lady of Paulo Avelino. While they were shooting for the movie in 2019, the actor mentioned to the actress that he will be doing a series. “Noong nagsusyuting pa po kami for our film, yung Ngayon Kaya, pinapag-usapan na din talaga namin na… Nagkukuwento siya na may gagawin siyang serye. Tapos, parang ako… ‘O, baka puwede, ako na lang?’” she said.
Janine said that it was a half-joke. At that time, she was still under the management of GMA Artist Agency and so it was not possible for them to work together in a series. “I was really, really hoping to eventually work with Pau sa TV,” she said.
Now that she is under ABS-CBN, this statement of the actress became a reality. Her first leading man as a Kapamilya is indeed Paulo Avelino.
Previously, the actor revealed, that Janine really cried when her first attempt to be a Kapamilya was not a success. Paulo said that years ago, the former Kapuso star was already aiming to transfer and she cried when it did not happen back then. The actor knew about this as they are being handled by the same manager.
