MANILA – Charlie Dizon, who is the lead actress in the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry “Fan Girl,” admitted she does not want her parents to watch her movie.

In an article by Push, Dizon said she is nervous for her parents to see her in intimate scenes with her leading man, Paulo Avelino.

“Hindi pa [nila napapanood]. Kinakabahan pa rin ako, sa totoo lang. Sinabi ko sa mommy ko na huwag niya panoorin. Pero kasi madami daw nagme-message sa kanya na mga friends niya kaya nababalitaan niya,” she said.

The 24-year-old actress said she and Avelino were not able to talk about how they will tackle those scenes before cameras started to roll. 

Nonetheless, she trusted in Avelino and in the creative vision of their director, Antoinette Jadaone.

“Hindi namin napag-usapan ni Paulo 'yung mga eksena na 'yun so in my case, nabigla na lang ako. Pero nagtiwala naman ako kasi alam ko na planado din nila 'yun and alam nila 'yung gagawin,” she explained.

“Kumbaga na-warning-an naman nila ako dati na parang surprise din, para maging raw and mas natural 'yung magiging reactions ko. Nagtiwala na lang ako kay direk Tonette and kay Pau na mapapaganda namin 'yung eksena,” she added.

Dizon said she was fortunate to have Avelino as her co-star because he treated her well while they were doing the project.

“Naging mabait siya noong shooting namin. Kumbaga naging patient siya talaga at tinulungan niya ako para mas mapaganda 'yung mga eksena namin. And kahit hindi niya eksena, kahit eksena ko lang, tumutulong siya talaga,” she said.

Now that it’s out for streaming, Dizon is only hoping more people would watch “Fan Girl” through legal platforms.

“Noong una nakaka-feel bad na 'yun 'yung nakikita ng tao,” she said, referring to screenshots of Avelino’s frontal nudity that made the rounds online.

“Kasi iniisip ko na sana mas makita nila na maganda 'yung pelikula, mas may storya talaga at mas may sense. 'Yung iba kasi masaya sila na nakikita na ganun 'yung kumakalat na pictures. Pero thankful din [ako] sa mga tao na nanood legally and talagang nag-stay para panoorin 'yung pelikula kasi nagustuhan nila 'yung kabuuan ng pelikula. Kasi minsan 'yung photos na ganun na-a-out of context sa mismong story,” she said.

In the end, Dizon thanked everyone who has already seen the movie.

“Hindi nila alam ano namang pinanggalingan noong photos na 'yun, kung 'yun lang yung nakita nila. Pero thank you nga sa sumuporta lalo na nung nakita nila 'yun,” she said.
