Even onscreen, Aquino's pretend romance is a matter of concern for James Yap, Jr., more popularly known by his nickname "Bimby."
Aquino said Bimby is "affected" and "heartbroken" by any hint of a new love life for his mom.
Referring to the upcoming comedy film "Sisterakas," where she portrays a villainous business tycoon, Aquino said, "Dito tuwang-tuwa nga siya (Bimby) dahil walang ka-love team, walang ka-eksena."
In her upcoming romance-drama series, however, the same isn't the case.
In "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw," Aquino and former real-life boyfriend Robin Padilla portray a married couple, Roxanne and Bogs.
"Nanood [si Bimby] ng taping namin," Aquino told reporters shortly after the grand press conference for "Sisterakas" held Saturday.
"Ang nakita niyang scene kasi was a 15th wedding anniversary scene. Obviously may halik. Hindi siya naka-get over talaga, kasi ang bukambibig niya, 'Mama, I really hate Robin Padilla because he's stealing you from me,'" the actress added, laughing.
According to Aquino, 41, Bimby even went to tell "everyone" about the kiss, including the "Kris TV" host's brother, President Benigno Aquino III.
For his part, Padilla has assured the 5-year-old that the kissing scene is just pretend. "Ang sabi niya, 'Bimb, it's just acting, it's not real life.' Napapa-English siya," Aquino said.
"Tapos nagsuntukan na lang sila, hindi pa rin sila okay," she added, laughing.
Along with "It's Showtime" host Vice Ganda and veteran comedienne Ai Ai delas Alas, Aquino topbills Star Cinema's "Sisterakas." The upcoming comedy flick by Wenn Deramas is a film entry to the 38th Metro Manila Film Festival.
Also starring Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla and Xyriel Manabat, "Sisterakas" will hit theaters nationwide on Christmas Day.
