Marian Rivera thankful for all her blessings this 2010

MARIAN RIVERA has much to be thankful for this year so she gave a thanksgiving party to the press at Annabel’s. “Kahit may mga intriga, thankful akong kumita yung ‘You to Me are Everything’ namin ni Dingdong (Dantes), tapos may filmfest entry ako ngayon, ‘Super Inday and the Golden Bibe’,” she says. “On TV, hits ang ‘Darna’, ‘Show Me Da Manny’ and ‘Endless Love’. Tuloy-tuloy rin ang endorsements, so I can’t complain. God is good.”

She says ‘Super Inday’ a special blessing. “Kasi this gives me a chance na makapagpasaya ng tao this holiday season. Very entertaining ito, comedy-fantasy with action scenes ako fighting monsters and other forces of evil. It’s for the whole family. Also, it gave me the chance to remake a movie ng idol ko, Maricel Soriano.”

It’s common knowledge Vivian Velez was not pleased when she remade Vivian’s “Babaeng Hinugot sa Aking Tadyang”. What if Maricel Soriano also wouldn’t enjoy her portrayal of “Super Inday”? “Naku, I think she’ll like it, thanks to Mother Lily and Direk Mike Tuviera who guided me to make sure okay ang version ko ng ‘Super Inday’. Sana nga, manood si Ate Marya ng premiere night so she’d see our updated version ng kanyang 1988 movie. We’re both babaeng bakla rito. We’ve worked together in ‘Bahay Kubo’ sa 2007 filmfest and she’s really very nice and warm.”

Did she resent Vivian’s comments? “No, opinion niya yun and we’re all entitled to our own opinion. So I respect her opinion. Wala yun. I even told my fans not to react na kasi free country ito.”

So which one does she prefer: Darna or Super Inday? “Magkaiba sila kasi si Darna, serious. Super Inday is funny with fight scene ng naka-high heels ako sa batuhan kaya muntik ng masubsob ang mukha ko several times. Tiyak na tatawa ang viewers dito, pati sa characters played by Pokwang as Kokay and John Lapus as the Golden Bibe.”
