Eugene eyes 'box office queen' title
MANILA, Philippines -- Although she has already won several acting awards, actress Eugene Domingo admitted that she also hopes to be hailed as a "box office queen" someday.
"Hindi pa (kasi) ako nakakatanggap. Pinapalad lang na halos lahat ng pelikulang sinasalihan ko ay kumikita," Domingo told reporters after the press conference for her upcoming movie "Kimmy Dora and The Temple of Kyeme" last Monday.
"Hindi pa talaga to the max. Sana po ay mabahagian ako ni Ai Ai at ni Vice Ganda. Maganda din pong achievement 'yon as an actor," Domingo added.
Domingo is hoping that the sequel of her film "Kimmy Dora" will do as good as the 2009 original, which took in an estimated P81 million during its run, according to data from Box Office Mojo.
The comedienne said she is also nervous about how the sequel would fare in the box office.
"Pero 'yung tiwala at pananalig na pinaghirapan niyo, pinag-aralan, pinagsumikapan at ang gusto namin ay maging sulit ang bawat sentimo ng mga Pilipino, hindi naman siguro kami pababayaan at gusto ko talaga lumigaya kayo," Domingo said.
In the interview, Domingo admitted that she's open to possibility of staying single forever.
"In God's time pero okay na din ako sa wala," she said.
"Hindi naman sad yon, kasi kung masasaktan ka lang din at mahihirapan kahit may karelasyon ka, mas magandang mag-isa ka na lang at peaceful ka," she said.
Asked if she has suitors at the moment, Domingo replied: "Wala talagang nagpaparamdam."
"Kimmy Dora and The Temple of Kyeme" will hit theaters on June 13.
