MANILA – The stars of the Hollywood movie “The Other Woman” shared that they were exposed to Filipino culture when they were young.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News’ Ginger Conejero, Cameron Diaz recalled how she enjoyed eating adobo and lumpia prepared by mother of her best friend who is from the Philippines.

“My best friend that I grew up next door to, her mother is from the Philippines. The lumpia and adobo, I ate it every single day. [I ate] rice all the time. Her mom made the best rice. I would just go over to the house and open up the fridge because her mom would make stacks of lumpia and I would just like go in there. I just go and let myself in…fry up some lumpia,” she said.

Kate Upton, on the other hand, said she has been to the Philippines for a photo shoot for a popular magazine.

“I've been there. I went there for my first Sports Illustrated shoot, actually. I thought it was so beautiful. I was so happy. It's just a beautiful culture. I loved it there... I was only 18,” she said.

Aside from Diaz and Upton, “The Other Woman” also stars Leslie Mann. The movie tells the story of three ladies who team up to exact revenge on the same man who cheated on them.
