Why Judy Ann Santos Remains On The Top Of Her Batch Of Co-Stars

WE TOLD Judy Ann Santos at her launch as Eden Cheese celebrity endorser that she’s the only one in her batch (that includes Claudine Barretto and Jolina Magdangal) who remains so active because she has such a beautiful and positive aura resulting from her happy marriage with Ryan Agoncillo.

“Thank you po,” she said. “Ang sarap namang pakinggan.”

Right now, so many film companies are vying for her services to start a new movie with them. Viva wants her to do a movie with Claudine Barretto (their first together) while Star Cinema wants her to star with Coco Martin or John Lloyd Cruz. GMA Films is also after her to do “Ouija 2” while Gov. ER Ejercito wants her to play his first wife in “El Presidente, Emilio Aguinaldo Story”.

Her manager, Alfie Lorenzo, doesn’t want Juday to do a movie with Claudine, so that’s out. Her project with Coco has long been in the drawing boards but she’d have to wait as he’s still finishing “You Light Up My Life” with Angeline Quinto. Also, Mother Lily wants Coco to give priority to his movie with Marian Rivera sto start shooting soon, directed by Maryo de los Reyes with an August playdate. As for a movie with John Lloyd, Juday also has to wait since he’s giving priority to his reunion movie with Sarah Geronimo, their third team up. Someone tells us “Malabo rin yung ‘Ouija 2’ ng GMA Films and Juday herself has turned down the offer of Gov. ER.

In the Eden Cheese affair, Juday made it clear she has nothing against ER. “It’s a big project at historical pa,” she says. “But I cannot relate to the character I’d play kasi hindi naman siya buhay. I’d rather play someone I can relate with personally, para mas mabigyan ko ng justice. Ayokong mapulaan ang movie ng dahil sa’kin. I’m sure they can get a better actress na mas makakatulong para mas mapaganda ang movie. I have nothing personal against Gov. ER. Ako mismong natatakot na baka hindi ko maitawid ng tama yung role at lumabas lang ng katawa-tawa. I hope he understands.”
