Angel Locsin says no divas in star-studded movie

MANILA – Actress Angel Locsin does not mind getting unequal exposure in the upcoming family-oriented movie “Four Sisters and a Wedding.” The comedy-drama, which will kick off the 20th anniversary celebration of ABS-CBN's film production outfit Star Cinema, also features Bea Alonzo, Shaina Magdayao, Toni Gonzaga and Enchong Dee. More than her screen time, Locsin said she is concerned about how all of them would perform to properly tell the story to the audience. “Kung lahat kami magpapaka-diva, walang storyang mabubuo. Parang weird naman kung magbibilang ng eksena. Ang importante sa akin 'yung kuwento maganda at mahatid sa audience kasi family movie ito,” she said. In a separate interview, director Cathy Garcia Molina said trying to give the actresses equal exposure in the movie was tough. “Yun ang [klinaro] ko sa kanila, na I can’t promise equal exposure in the film because at the end of the day, it’s the story being told that's important. But I tried giving them equal treatment from me, making them feel na pareho ang importance nila sa pelikula whether mas marami exposure nila o hindi,” she said. Locsin said she is feels honored to have been given the chance to work with Alonzo, Magdaya, Gonzaga and Dee, as she praised her co-stars for not showing up with an “attitude” on the set. “Yung set namin masaya. Ang sarap ng uuwi kang nakangiti, hindi ka na-stress sa mga katrabaho mo off cam. Masi-stress ka siguro kung 'yung performance mo hindi maganda. Pero masaya 'yung meron kaming mga opportunidad na magkakatrabaho,” she said. Despite winning several acting trophies for her previous movies, Locsin said she still learned a lot from doing “Four Sisters and a Wedding.” “Iba ang natutunan ko. Ang gagaling ng mga katrabaho ko, walang biro. Nag-e-expect ako na may isa sa amin magpapaka-diva. Wala eh. Lahat sila professional. Suwerte ako na nabigyan ako ng chance makatrabaho ang magagaling na artista na mababait,” she said. In the first trailer for the film released early this month, sisters Teddie (Gonzaga), Bobbie (Alonzo), Alex (Locsin) and Gabbie (Magdayao) reunite for a "big event" -- their youngest brother's (Enchong Dee) wedding. However, the four sisters, left with a foul impression after meeting the bride's family, conspire to block the wedding as they scheme to "save" their brother. "Four Sisters and a Wedding" will be released in theaters nationwide on June 26.
