MANILA – In a recent interview with actor Alden Richards, popular TV host Boy Abunda revealed what he regretted about the Hello, Love, Goodbye star.
Abunda held a rare interview with the star from TV network GMA 7 at his Tonight With Boy Abunda show on rival network ABS-CBN.
Richards, who stars in the film Hello, Love, Goodbye opposite Kathryn Bernardo, was a guest on the TV show that was released as part of an online exclusive.
Hello, Love, Goodbye, which is also showing in the UAE, has become a box office hit, raking in P603 million since it opened in July 31, Star Cinema announced Saturday (August 17). It also broke the box office record for 2019’s highest grossing film on opening day.
This was the first time that Richards, who has a massive following for his GMA 7 AlDub love team, starred in a movie opposite an actress from a rival TV network.
It was revealed that years prior to his launch in show business, Richards had wanted to be managed by Abunda. Unfortunately, their meeting never materialized.
“Ang laki nga ng pagsisisi ko! (It’s a big regret for me)” Abunda said, in jest. “Ang yaman ko na siguro kung talagang na-manage kita! (I would probably be very rich now if I managed you)”
Richards, in turn, thanked Abunda for his guidance in the early years of his career.
The actor had revealed that he is single and that the last time he was in a relationship was when he was in college “a long time [ago]”.
Richards also said he had fallen in love with an actress before, but that they did not end up together.
“Siguro po, there’s a point in a relationship and in life, na sometimes, no matter how strong the feelings are towards a person, minsan hindi talaga kayo nagkakaintindihan… Hindi po umabot sa naging kami (Perhaps there is appoint in a relationship and in life when sometimes, no matter how strong the feelings are towards a person, sometimes the two of you just don’t have an understanding. We did not reach a point where we became a couple),” he said.
Richards was in the UAE last week with co-star Bernardo to promote their film. In Dubai, Richards and Bernardo revealed to Expatmedia.net the challenges they faced while filming their movie on two overseas Filipino workers finding love in Hong Kong.
