Guy's In Love With You, Mare," which also stars actor-host Luis Manzano.
In Star Cinema's upcoming comedy film "This Guy's In Love With You, Mare," the comedian-host portrays a suitor of actress Toni Gonzaga's character.
"Lalaki siya sa pelikulang ito kaya nakakatawa, pero lalaking-lalaki siya, convincing ah," Gonzaga told reporters on Wednesday night.
Asked about their kissing scene, Gonzaga said in jest: "Pinakamalalang nagawa ko sa buong buhay ko, na magka-eksena kami ni Vice na hindi ko alam kung paano namin nagawa!"
"First time ko ma-experience 'yung ganung klaseng kissing scene, kakaiba, hindi ko mai-describe. Nakakabaliktad ng sikmura," she added, laughing.
Directed by Wenn Deramas, "This Guy" is Vice Ganda's follow up to the 2011 comedy film "The Ukabogable Praybeyt Benjamin," which went on to become the highest-grossing local film of all time.
Referring to the achievement of the film, Gonzaga admitted she feels "pressured" to replicate its success, especially since she co-stars with Vice Ganda.
"Lagi namang may pressure, every project na ginagawa natin. Siguro mas may pressure lang dahil nga doon sa pelikula ni Vice," Gonzaga said.
"Pero hindi namin iniisip 'yun sa ngayon eh. Ine-enjoy lang namin ngayon 'yung pelikula," she added.
Known to be a close friend of the "It's Showtime" host, Gonzaga also said she has noticed Vice Ganda's evolution as an actor over the course of filming for their comedy flick.
"Mas mahusay siya ngayon, mas magaling, mas mabilis, at saka iba na 'yung kumpyansa niya sa sarili niya dahil alam niya na mahusay siya talaga at maraming nagmamahal sa kanya," Gonzaga said.
Also starring actor-host Luis Manzano, "This Guy's In Love With You Mare" is expected to hit theaters nationwide in October.
