MANILA – Veteran actress Nora Aunor confessed that she used to have a crush on her entertainment industry rival Vilma Santos.

She made the admission during her live interview on “The Buzz” Sunday when host Boy Abunda asked her out of curiosity.

“Hindi ko naman ikinahihiya 'yun. Totoo 'yun. Mula kasi nung bata ako, idol ko talaga si mare. Talagang fan ako noon. Limang beses ko kung panoorin ang pelikula niya, 'yung ‘Ging,’ ‘Trudis Liit.’ Talagang tumatakas ako sa bahay noon. Crush ko [si Vilma],” she said.

That's why when she got the chance to personally know Santos, Aunor said she did not waste any opportunity and sent her flowers.

“Nakatira siya sa Hillton noong araw, lukaret ako eh. Bumili ako ng rosas tapos 7 o’clock nandoon ako sa lobby ng Hillton. Wala pa si mare. Dumating siya 4 o’clock. From seven hanggang four naghintay ako talaga para lang maibigay 'yung rosas. Pinaakyat naman ako, pero walang nangyari. Umuwi lang ako,” she said laughing.

Host Kris Aquino, meanwhile, shared that Santos also once told her about Aunor’s gesture.

“Nakwento niya sa akin. Sabi niya, ‘Alam mo binigyan niya ako ng flowers tapos kursunada niya ako,’” she said, while giggling.

Aunor said she is really one of Santos’ fans because she is a talented actress.
