MANILA - Solenn Heussaff is thrilled by the prospect of co-starring in a movie with Ellen Adarna, who is similarly considered a "sex symbol" after a string of daring photo shoots for magazines and endorsements.
Speaking with reporters on Thursday, the 29-year-old Heussaff was asked to react to a film project being developed by Regal Films. The movie is being planned as the first onscreen team-up of Adarna and Heussaff, producers told ABS-CBN News.
Adarna, 26, recently signed a contract with Regal Entertainment, Inc. Heusaff, on the other hand, revealed that she will ink a deal with the same production company this month.
"I love Ellen! She's super fun. 'Diba bongga 'yung career niya ngayon? I'm happy for her," she said.
Aside from being a sought-after model, Adarna has been busy with the hit afternoon series "Moon of Desire," which is now down to its last 2 weeks. She also recently starred in the comedy film "My Illegal Wife."
Explaining how she is acquainted with Adarna, Heussaff said: "Si Ellen 'yung workout buddy ko since dati pa. Siya nag-introduce sa akin sa plyometrics. Super fun to be around, she's so kalog!"
She added: "Gusto ko sa kanya, she doesn't care what people think about her and she's very... maybe a little too honest sometimes!"
Adarna has made headlines time and again after candidly admitting ties with controversial personalities. In interviews, she also does not mince words in criticizing people or practices she finds disagreeable.
Asked who between her or Adarna is more "loka-loka" (crazy), Heussaff answered: "'Yung loka-loka, pareho. Pero baka ako, mag-e-edit, siya hindi. Siya walang edit. Whatever she thinks, she says it, so iyon ang gusto ko sa kanya. Parang hindi siya showbiz na personality."
"Kaya marami siyang haters din, tulad ko, but we embrace it!"
