MANILA - Hollywood star Andrew Garfield congratulated Kris Aquino and her youngest son, Bimby, for beating his first "Spider-Man" film in the Philippines in terms of earnings.

This after Aquino bragged to Garfield that their movie, "My Little Bossings," holds the record for the highest first-day gross in the Philippines.

Aquino, who was accompanied by Bimby, interviewed Garfield in Singapore, whose movie, "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," premieres in the Philippines on April 30.

"Actually he (Bimby) was supposed to say 'that the first-day gross of his movie in the Philippines actually beats Spider-Man. Our movie holds the record for the highest first-day gross. It's called 'My Little Bossings.' In English, 'My Little Bosses.' It's a comedy, it was shown on Christmas Day'," Aquino said on Kris TV.

Garfield replied, saying: "Fantastic... Well, congratulations."

Aquino also thanked Garfield for allowing her son to meet him and witness the interview, as well as have a photo taken with him.

"Thank you for this opportunity, thank you for this wonderful chance. May I take a picture? Oh, thank you so much, this is the ultimate mama moment," she said.

On the "Kris TV" episode which aired on Friday, Aquino praised Garfield for being so nice and accommodating.

"Oh 'di ba, kapag pinaligaya ang anak mo, ikaw na ang pinakamasaya sa buong mundo. I love him. Genuinely mabait, hindi ba? I was the last to interview him that day, he did 24 interviews. Ganoon sya kabait," she said.
