Angel Aquino Sounds Like She's Ashamed Of The Lurid Things She Did In 'Porno'

ANGEL AQUINO plays Joel Torre’s long suffering wife in Star Cinema’s “On the Job”. At the movie’s presscon, we told her during the open forum that we can’t understand why she did all the things her character, a transgender, did in her last movie, the Cinemalaya entry, “Porno”, where she is shown satisfying herself with a vibrator.

She suddenly shrunk in horror. “Please, please, let’s not talk about that anymore,” she said with her repeatedly waving her hand. “Let’s just focus on ‘On the Job’.”

It’s quite apparent that Angel is not proud of what she did in “Porno”. “Para namang diring-diri siya at kinahihiya niyang ginawa niya ang pelikulang yun,” quips one newshen. “Nagmistula kasi siyang parang isang baguhan na gustong magkapangalan kaya willing gumawa ng ganung kababoy na eksena. May closeup pa kasi ng ari niya habang pinaliligaya ang sarili. Sa mga nakakaalam na gaya natin, we know double lang yun. But yung hindi well versed sa ganitong mga pandaraya in moviemaking would think siya talaga ang gumawa ng ganung eksena sa harap ng kamera. Dapat, next time, mas maging maingat siya sa pagtanggap ng projects niya dahil hindi naman siya kaladkarin at chipipay na artistang kailangang gumawa pa ng ganoong kalaswaan on screen. She’s beyond that now.”

In “On the Job”, as Joel Torre’s wife, Angel doesn’t reveal to their daughter, Empress Schuck, the truth that Joel is in prison but tells her that he’s just working abroad. She herself doesn’t know that her husband is actually a hired assassin who is taken out of jail every now and then to kill people assigned to him by corrupt politicians.
