Dubbed as this generation’s “movie queen,” Bea Alonzo sat down with Boy Abunda on “Tonight With Boy Abunda” (TWBA) to discuss her new movie, “First Love” (directed by Paul Soriano), in which she stars alongside Aga Muhlach. Just two days short of her 30th birthday, the actress expressed her long standing dream to work with Muhlach, calling herself his “fangirl” and recounting her excitement when she first got the offer to work with him.
When asked what the new movie was all about, Alonzo said, “When we fell in love for the first time, we didn’t have any expectations. We were reckless. That’s probably the purest form of [romantic] love that you feel towards another person. You haven’t been hurt so you aren’t afraid yet.” She reflected on the lessons she learned in the movie and in her 30 years of living by saying that her wish for her birthday was for wisdom and contentment, both in her career and in her love life.
Abunda recalls having asked Alonzo during her last appearance on the show whether ‘Gerald’ was the name of the man she was going to marry, to which she answered that she was not sure. Since her last appearance on TWBA in early 2017, she and Anderson had broken up and subsequently gotten back together. They were last seen attending the 2018 Star Magic Ball together, during which Alonzo took to Instagram to show fans their “magical” night together.
When asked what kind of cake she would bake Anderson, Alonzo said chocolate cake because it is his favorite. And because “you always go back to it,” she added with a laugh. When Abunda repeated the question he had asked on her previous visit about whether ‘Gerald’ would be the name of the man she was going to marry, Alonzo simply replied, “hopefully.”
