Star Magic's 20Th Anniversary Offering, '24/7 In Love", Feature Real Live Lovebirds Zanjoe-Bea, Angelica-John Lloyd Plus Kim-Gerald, Kathryn-Daniel

REAL LIFE LOVE BIRDS Bea Alonzo and Zanjoe Marudo are paired in Star Magic’s 20th anniversary movie, “24/7 in Love”. They were very sweet at the presscon. But Angelica Panganiban was all by her lonesome in the same affair. How come her beau John Lloyd Cruz is not with her?

“May taping po siya sa Batangas,” she says.

The movie has seven different episodes and is star studded. Aside from the Zanjoe-Bea, Angelica-John Lloyd episodes, also reunited in their own story are Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson. Diether Ocampo is paired with Maja Salvador for the first time, ditto for Pokwang and Sam Milby, while Piolo Pascual plays a 35-year old mentally challenged man with the mind of a 7-year old who figures in a love triangle with kiddie stars Zaijian Jaranilla and Xyriel Manabat. The 7th episode is the framework of the movie linking all the stories, with Kathryn Bernardo as an avid fan of Daniel Padilla, a hot young actor in their episode, interviewing all the other stars on what will they do if it’s already the end of the world. The movie has four directors: Mae Santos, Frasco Mortiz, Dado Lumibao and John D. Lazatin.

The funniest episode based on the trailer is that of Zanjoe who plays a beki but Bea is still in love with him. Who was his peg in playing the role? “Actually, at the start of the shoot, hindi ko alam ang gagawin,” he says. “Buti na lang maraming bakla sa set so sila na lang ginaya ko. After a while, I became comfortable with the role.”

A hilarious scene in their story shows him getting drunk with Bea and sleeping with her. When he wakes up and realizes what happened to them, he rushes to the toilet and throws up.
