MANILA - Cristine Reyes admitted that she felt awkward doing intimate scenes with her ex-boyfriend, Derek Ramsay, in the upcoming romance-drama film "The Trophy Wife."
During a press conference on Thursday for the Viva Films movie, the 24-year-old actress said it was challenging to be working with Ramsay in the wake of their split.
Reyes said that a scene wherein they are intimate in a bathtub, as previewed in the film's trailer, was the most difficult one to shoot.
"'Yung sa bathtub na scene, hindi na kasi kami noon, eh. Kaya sa akin, medyo may ilang factor kasi naninibago ako. Kasi from friends to naging kami for a while to hindi na," she said.
"Pero okay naman, kasi gentleman naman si Derek," she added.
Reyes and Ramsay ended their month-long relationship in 2013. The actress, at the time, admitted that she was not ready for the relationship. She added, however, that they managed to become best friends again.
Asked if there is any chance they will get back together, Reyes said, "I guess nagkaroon na kami ng pag-uusap ni Derek about that stuff."
Referring to a decision they made during a trip to Hawaii weeks after they announced the split, she added: "Okay naman kami sa napagdesisyunan namin. Happy naman ako. We're okay."
Reyes also revealed that she is now currently dating a non-showbiz foreigner, but explained that their relationship is in the early stages.
"Hindi pa naman exclusive at wala pa naman title. Kasi marami pang mga bagay na kailangan asikasuhin, like work ko and stuff," she said.
She also requested for the year-old relationship to be kept private, saying, "Ayaw ko rin siya maabala."
