During the media conference for his Vivamax Plus movie, Two and One, with the press, including LionhearTV, on October 4, artist Miggy Jimenez recalled how he told his girlfriend and his mom about the sensitive scenes in his Vivamax movie.
Jimenez highlighted the value of communication and support in his current romantic relationship.
“Feeling ko it boils down to a good time to communicate, to sit down and talk things through. Kasi, hindi lang naman din ‘yung sarili ko ‘yung kino-consider ko which is siyempre, everyone around you, my mom, isa ‘yun sa mga walk through na kailangan ko ring suriin.
“For someone, na kailangan mo din sila i-enlighten. Na kailangan mo i-explain talaga, but pumupunta pa rin din doon ‘yung suporta. ‘Yung suporta pa rin na kailangan mo na to keep you going, kasi feeling ko, pag nasa-isang relationship ka tapos wala ‘yung support, I feel like na hindi siya okay, na hindi ka namo-motivate na gawin ‘yun kasi parang hindi natutuwa ‘yung other half mo.”
He then admitted that he had more difficulty telling his mom about his intimate scenes in the Vivamax film.
He explained that his mom wasn’t ready to see him on-screen and asked if she could leave in the middle of the movie premiere.
“I’m happy na she went like earlier kanina, pero sabi niya po sa akin noong nagkita po kami na, ‘Okay lang ba na umalis ako in the middle of your film.’ Kasi she wasn’t really ready. And I understand. I do understand, but I can feel the support and how proud she is, but again, I have to respect her. And when she’s ready to watch it, I’ll watch it with her.”
Under the direction of Ivan Andrew Payawal, premiered on Vivamax Plus on October 5.
