Lovi Poe Is So Happy, She Has A Hit Movie, 'The Significant Other', & A Hit Primetime Show, 'TOTGA'

LOVI POE is justifiably grinning from ear to ear since everyone who has seen her new movie, “The Significant Other”, says she’s the most effective and persuasive player among the leads. “Hindi naman ako lang,” she demurs, remaining humble. “It’s a group effort. All of us collaborated and gave our best to make sure we’ll come up with a good film and we’re thankful na lahat ng nanood ng movie namin, nagustuhan ito and it’s now doing very well at the box office.”

Her Fil-French boyfriend, Chris Johnson, came to the premiere night of the movie at Trinoma but he was not with Lovi. He was with his own friends while Lovi joined the rest of her co-stars. But Lovi approached him and gave him a kiss before joining her co-stars. Everyone is wondering what’s Chris reaction when he saw Lovi’s sizzling hot bed scenes with her leading man, Tom Rodriguez, in the movie.

“It’s not at all an issue for him,” says Lovi. “He’s liberal minded and he knows that being an actress, doing such scenes is part of what my job requires. Alam din niyang Tom is a good friend kasi we also played husband and wife on TV in the soap ‘Someone to Watch Over Me’, kaya we’re so comfortable na with each other and so, walang problema at all.”

Lovi is really doing well on both the big and small screens these days. On TV, her portrayal of Alex in “The One That Got Away” or TOTGA is also a hit. She plays a jolly TV host who’s a “babaeng bakla” (female faggot) in the way she behaves. Satisfied audiences now express in social media how much they’re really enjoying her rollicking performance in various scenes.

A new addition in TOTGA is Renz Fernandez, the son of the late Rudy Fernandez. He does very well in his scenes with Lovi, who happens to be the daughter of Da King, Fernando Poe Jr. It’s amusing the children of two action icons of local films now interacting with each other. We’re sure that their respective dads are very proud of them as they are both to play their roles well and they do have great chemistry on screen.
