Cristine Reyes Is Viva's Favorite Actress Now Doing Four Movies Simultaneously

CRISTINE REYES is obviously the favorite actress of Viva Entertainment these days. Viva is going full blast in making movies and would you believe she’s in the cast of four new movies no less? First, she plays the title role in “My Trophy Wife”, directed by Elwood Perez. She’s the trophy wife of John Estrada who has an affair with Derek Ramsay, whose girlfriend is Heart Evangelista. In “Where Love Has Gone” (directed by Andoy Ranay and based on the hit Danny Zialcita drama “Nagalit ang Buwan sa Haba ng Gabi”), she plays the wife of Jake Cuenca who turns out to be gay so she has an affair with Gabby Concepcion, who’s married to Alice Dixson, with Andi Eigenmann as their daughter.

In the Metro-Manila Filmfest entry “Girl Boy Bakla Tomboy” directed by Wenn Deramas, she plays the girlfriend of the Tomboy character of Vice Ganda, with Ruffa Gutierrez as the girlfriend of the Boy character. And finally, in “The Gifted” directed by Chris Martinez, she and Anne Curtis plays friends from high school who are always competing with each other. Cristine is a pimply faced girl here while Anne is fat so she’ll be wearing a fat suit, with Sam Milby as their leading man.

Aside from these four movies that she’s now currently shooting, Cristine is also in ABS-CBN soap “Bukas na Lang Kita Mamahalin” as the leading lady of Gerald Anderson. Wonder if she still has time to go out on dates with boyfriend Derek Ramsay.

Going back to Viva, aside from the four amentioned films, they’re also doing the film version of the hit Bob Ong book, “Aba, Nakakabasa Na Ako”, directed by Mark Meily, starring Jericho Rosales, Andi Eigenmann, Meg Imperial and Vandolph. Then they’ll do the hit internet book “Diary of a Pangit” to launch teen star Nadine Ilustre (of “Bagets” on TV5) with Kapamilya actors Enrique Gil and Matteo Guidicelli as leading men. “We’ve talked to Star Magic at pinahiram na sila,” says Viva exec June Torrejon.
