Alden Richards and Julia Montes Forge Unexpected Friendship.

Richards, a seasoned actor with a plethora of projects under his belt, extolled Montes not only for her exceptional acting prowess but also for the depth of her character. He emphasized that the opportunity to get to know her on a personal level was the true reward.

"In all my years of working in this industry, Julia Montes stands out not just as an outstanding actress, but also as a remarkable human being. The chance to connect – not just professionally, as the work itself is a bonus – to share our secrets and our conversations throughout this journey, has been incredibly fulfilling both in work and in life," Richards articulated.

Montes, concurring with her on-screen partner, echoed that their newfound friendship was the most precious takeaway from this collaborative effort.

"This is the first project that I've enjoyed immensely, with countless lessons learned. The camaraderie we carry after work, knowing that you have friends and you're part of that circle. For those who look up to Alden, I now understand why you idolize him. It's truly well-deserved," she affirmed.

They delved into a pivotal scene recently shared with their social media followers, revealing that the emotionally charged sequence was captured on the very first day of shooting.

"As I watched it, I was genuinely moved. Not just because it was us, but the thought of being in that situation, knowing your partner, yet hesitating to assign blame because you lack concrete evidence. But you know your partner, so at the end of the day, you know there's something there," Montes confided.

Richards pointed out that filming that scene on the inaugural day turned out to be serendipitous, as their initial unfamiliarity with each other worked to their advantage.

"As sensitive actors, we used that moment to our advantage to elevate the scene we were creating... because, at that time, I didn't know Jules too well. So I was easily affected by the words you were throwing at me. If we had done it later, after getting to know each other better, it would have been harder to be hurt by words coming from you," he explained.

Addressing the leaked kissing scene, shared online with the consent of their director Irene Villamor, both actors were candid about their reactions.

"I had no inkling it would be released. It was quite nerve-wracking," Richards confessed. "Slowly, my excitement grew after that leaked video and the scene drop, as we saw the feedback from our audience. In reality, this is just a little taste."

As their conversation drew to a close, Montes expressed her elation and the privilege she felt in witnessing Richards' exceptional acting abilities firsthand.

"It's such a wonderful feeling to know that when you have a scene partner, you don't feel pressured on how to bring out what the scene requires. With us, it's like every scene, we just lock eyes, and we're already connected," she beamed.

"If you watch the film, you'll see our genuine excitement because there are moments not in the script, but because we felt the characters... we were truly moved. The script asks for something, but we went above and beyond because it was brimming with emotions. It's just so fulfilling to work on a project like this," she concluded.

While the release of the movie is confirmed for this year, the exact date remains undisclosed.

This comprehensive exchange between Alden Richards and Julia Montes provides a rare insight into the organic development of a profound friendship amidst their collaborative efforts on "Five Break-Ups and a Romance." Their genuine connection and commitment to their roles have elevated the project to a level of emotional depth that promises an exceptional cinematic experience for audiences.
