Star Cinema offers another controversial love story with the upcoming movie The Mistress starring Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz in celebration of their 10th anniversary as a love team.
In this movie, Bea Alonzo will be at her bravest and most daring role yet. Playing the title role as the mistress named Sari, the movie required Bea to have kissing and love scenes with an older man (Rico) played by veteran actor Ronaldo Valdez.
Ronaldo Valdez, 64, who once played Bea Alonzo's father in the hit remake I Love Betty La Fea, revealed that he and Bea will have love scenes in the movie.
“Nung mabasa ko ‘yung script at malaman ko ‘yung role ko bilang si Rico ang mature benefactor ni Sari (Bea), na-excite ako kaya pumayag agad ako. Kinilig ako kasi it’s a love story of two people na nagkataon ‘yung isa younger at ‘yung isa older tapos at nagkataon din na meron nang pamilya si Rico.”
According to the highly-acclaimed actor, the movie is a great challenge for him since it's not only a typical father that he is portraying but Bea Alonzo's lover and John Lloyd's rival. He also added that he tried to be at ease with Bea.
“Dahil baka mailang siya I tried my best to be ease with her. Ayokong isipin niya na nagte-take advantage ako. Well its work, but then again syempre kailangan ng preparations lalo na at may love scenes.”
Meanwhile, John Lloyd Cruz will be playing JD, Sari's suitor. In the movie, Bea and John Lloyd's paths will cross in an unexpected circumstance, that is when Sari is already committed to a married man, Rico (Ronaldo Valdez).
Aside from Bea, John Lloyd and Ronaldo, The Mistress also stars multi-awarded actress Hilda Koronel who will play Regina, Rico's understanding wife. This will be Ms. Hilda's first movie after six years in hiatus and the reason she said yes to the project is not just that she loved the script the first time she had read it.
“It’s a perfect project–it’s from Star Cinema, I have direk Olive, and I’m working with John Lloyd, Bea, and Ronald. When you have all these people, you just can’t say no!”
Under the direction of acclaimed director Olivia Lamasan, The Mistress will hit Philippine theaters this September 12, 2012.
