Batangas Governor and Star For All Seasons Vilma Santos revealed that her son, Luis Manzano, refused to accept the gay role he that was offered to him in the movie which will also star his mom and actor John Lloyd Cruz. Vilma’s much awaited movie under Star Cinema is about a mother’s relationship with her gay son and his lover.
"Mamamatay siya sa kalagitnaan ng movie pero sabi ko sa kanya, ang importance ng isang role ay hindi sa length kundi sa gravity. Pero hindi pa raw siya handa sa gay role. Kung talagang itu-turn down niya 'yun, it's his decision," explained Ate Vi.
The film has actually been offered to the Governor by Star Cinema a few years ago, but she turned it down because of her hectic schedule as a public servant. But now that she will be able to get a three-month break from office, Ate Vi decided to accept the part.
In the meantime, there is no word yet as to who will play the part of Vilma's son in the movie. The role is controversial because it allegedly involves a kissing scene between the gay character and his partner. If ever the word is true, this will be John Lloyd's first time to have a kissing scene with another man.
On her son’s personal life, Ate Vi said that she hopes that her eldest son won't marry yet. For her, Luis is still young and he should enjoy his single life. "Ayoko pang maging lola at 38 years old pa lang ako!" the 50-year old actress said jokingly. Luis is currently dating actress Angel Locsin and the Governor commented that she and Edu Manzano, Luis's father, have seen that their son's relationship with Angel had a positive effect on him.
