"You only live once," actress Heart Evangelista said, explaining why she decided to take on the offer of starring in an action movie.

Speaking with Cinema One, Evangelista revealed that this was the reason she was in China early this year, putting an end to the rumors that she'll be featuring in the "Crazy Rich Asians" sequel.

"Medyo nagulat rin ako sa sarili ko," she admitted, refusing to drop other details about the mystery project sans describing it as an "international movie," and that she's unsure if it will be shown locally.

Evangelista has never topbilled an action movie before, and she shared that shooting one had been a difficult and tiring experience. She recalled waking up at 4 a.m. just to exercise during the preparations.

Evangelista also added that the project delayed their plans of having a baby. She lost her twins to a miscarriage last year, and said that she and her husband, Sen. Chiz Escudero, are in no rush to try again.

"Better to finish first what I need to do. Minsan lang din naman may mga opportunities na dumating. So my husband and I agreed na gawin ko muna ang kailangan gawin and then we'll try again."
