PNS — ACCORDING to Eugene Domingo, she’s toying with the idea of doing a movie project with Sarah Geronimo in the near future.
“That would be nice, don’t you think so? I’d love to work with Sarah. She has this certain charm on screen, and I feel we’ll make a good combination, if ever,” she avers.
Some quarters wonder why she is considering the thought, to think that she herself is a main box-office attraction. In the process, she won’t be able to get solo credit if ever the film becomes a hit.
“Honestly, it doesn’t matter to me at this point in time: who gets top billing or whose exposure is longer. I’m not that competitive. My commitment is with the project.”
For Eugene, potential hit team-ups are what the local film industry needs these days.
“Definitely,” she beams, “for practicality reasons. It’s hard to score a hit these days. Good screen tandems stir excitement among the viewing public. The fresher the team-up, the bigger chances it has to make money.
“Gone are the days when a movie’s financial viability is dictated by its lone lead star. As an old adage goes, two heads are better than one. In my case with Sarah, we could pass up as a riotous mother and daughter team. I wish there is really a producer out there who will take interest in us,” she explains.
Meanwhile, many believe she is presently the highest paid celebrity on the boob tube since her shows for GMA7 are left and right.
“That’s not true,” she says with a laugh.
Considering her present stature, it’s inevitable for the public to think that she’s got lots of money already.
“Again, that’s a wrong perception. I’m not yet that rich. But I admit I have savings. I’m a hardworking person. I don’t have vices too.”
With the success of her last two silver screen starrers, “Working Girls 2010” and “Here Comes the Bride,” she is a likely candidate for the Box-office Queen title next year.
“Well, I don’t know about that. For me, it’s just a title. What’s important is that my movies make money. I simply feel lucky and blessed,” ends Eugene.
