Solenn Heusaff bit the lip of Mikael Daez

SOLENN HEUSSAFF vehemently denies the report that she got so drunk in Boracay during Holy Week that she had to be carried by four men back to her hotel. “If they have pictures or video of me passing out, show me,” she said as we’re having lunch in Laoag for the “Temptation Island” shoot. “I’m not tanga naman to behave like that now that I’m in the public eye. When I was younger, I did drink to show that I’m cool. But that’s ‘been there, done that’ for me. In Boracay, I was with Bianca King and Michelle Madrigal and I was entertaining 3 friends from France and 3 from Israel. We were there just to have fun. How can I show them around if I got so drunk? I just drank tubig-tubig lang. And why would it take four men to carry me? Am I that heavy? Three of the guys with us are real big, so one lang puede na if that were true. But it’s not, we always walk back to our hotel after our nights out on the beach. I’m angry as I have six endorsements that might be affected by such negative stories about me. I’m also just starting in showbiz. I don’t want people to think I’m a drunkard.”

Will she sue? “No, it’s a minor thing, but it’s annoying kasi I can’t understand why they have to invent such things. Wala namang proof, they still write about it without verifying facts.”

Some say Bianca and Michelle are bad influence to her. “Not true. Bianca has a boyfriend and Michelle is not a party animal. Baka it’s the other way around,” she laughs.

She’s happy with her role in “Temptation Island” as a social climber paired with newcomer Mikael Daez who’s the toyboy of John Lapus in the movie. Has she seen the original film? “Oh yes, even before I joined showbiz. My friends like watching it kasi, but I didn’t fully understand it then. I never imagined I’d be part of its remake pala. My mom here is Deborah Sun, who’s part of the original movie. She’s so nice and helps me with my role.”

Is she now more confident on cam than in her first film? “Yes, but there’s pressure kasi I’m with Marian Rivera, Heart Evangelista, Rufa Mae Quinto and Lovi Poe. E, ang gagaling nila. Love triangle kami ni John Lapus dito with Mikael. When told we have to kiss, Mikael’s first question to me was: may tongue ba? I laughed because that was also the question I asked Richard (Gutierrez) before our kissing scene in ‘My Valentine Girls’. Di ko kasi alam. Now, I’m the one who carried the scene with Mikael and just as it’s about to end, I bit his lip playfully kaya nagulat siya.”
