MANILA – Karla Estrada has expressed her "all out support" for the upcoming movie of Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards.
Estrada is the mother of Daniel Padilla, Bernardo’s boyfriend and love team partner.
On Instagram, the “Magandang Buhay” host shared Bernardo and Richards’ photo with director Cathy Garcia Molina and Star Cinema managing director Olivia Lamasan.
“Mabuhay ang pelikulang Pilipino! Isa na namang obra ito,” she wrote in the caption.
Now with over 24,000 “likes” and hundreds of comments, several netizens lauded Estrada for still promoting Bernardo’s project even though it is not one with her son.
In an open letter which Preview magazine published online, Bernardo said she and Padilla have agreed not to do any projects together for 2019.
“Of course, there’s no way I can talk about growth without mentioning DJ because he’s a big part of what makes me who I am today. He’s played a crucial role in helping me become not only a better actress but also a better person,” she began.
“Some of you might already be aware of this, but late last year, we made a mutual decision to not accept projects together this 2019,” the actress added.
While admitting it will be tough for the both of them, Bernardo assured their supporters that “we really gave it some thought, and while there’s nothing we want more than to make you happy, we’d appreciate if you can give us this year to pursue our individual growth this time around.”
The actress also admitted that the idea somehow scares them but this is one way for them to discover what kind of opportunities await them in this journey.
“Needless to say, DJ and I will still be here; I will always have his back in the same way that I know he always has mine. It’s just that, in the meantime, we want to support each other off-cam,” she said.
