Iza Calzado Admires Toni GonzagaIza Calzado cannot help but be vocal about her admiration for co-Kapamilya actress Toni Gonzaga, who she has worked with in the Star Cinema movie "Starting Over Again."
The movie is the latest project by Toni and Piolo Pascual. It was directed by Olivia Lamasan. "Napakahusay niya talagang artista. Even as a person, I really like her."
Iza said she also finds Toni "funny and pleasant to be around." In this movie, Toni was able to prove that she is not just a comedy actress, but she can also make people cry.
She didn't think that she was able to work with Toni. She has been a fan since "My Amnesia Girl." Iza shared that whenever Toni cries in that movie, she also cries.
Toni and Iza have a scene together in "Starting Over Again" that is a memorable one for the former Kapuso actress.
"Isang eksena lang yun sa amin ni Toni, pero I'm sure that it will also stand out. Pinakapaborito ko talaga yun sa lahat ng eksena ko sa movie."
Toni and Piolo definitely have more scenes together, Iza added.
On the other hand, Toni said she finds Iza very beautiful, but Iza countered this and said Toni does not realize how beautiful she truly is.
Iza even kidded that she will be more beautiful if she has Toni's skin and legs. "Si Toni kasi, the entire package is a beautiful sight. Yung maaliwalas, di ba, yung countenance niya, lahat."
Iza's friends said they will watch the movie not only because their friend is there, but because she will be starring alongside Toni and Piolo.
They didn't grow as close as Iza would have wanted, but she added that the times they worked together on the set, she realized how blessed she is for having Toni as a co-worker. They also support each other in all of their scenes.
Iza, however, is not aware that there was a time Piolo almost courted and pursued Toni. But like Piolo, Iza thought it's better their relationship did not materialize.
Toni, she said, received her better half in director Paul Soriano while Iza hopes Piolo's life partner will also arrive soon for the actor.
As for her own love life, Iza said she's happy with her Filipino-British boyfriend, commercial model Ben Wintle. He has been very supportive of her endeavors, Iza added, and he makes sure that he's always there for her.
As for marriage plans, Iza said they are still enjoying their time together as boyfriend-girlfriend. Although they sometimes touch on the subject, there are no concrete plans yet.
