ARA Mina and Maui Taylor are the younger two mentors in “Pornstar 2: Pangalawang Putok” after Alma Moreno and Rosanna Roces. They’re now both married and has kids of their own. Ara has a daughter and Maui has two sons.

Has Ara’s husband, Dave Almarinez, seen “Pornstar 1”?

“No, wala siyang time, he’s so busy, lalo ngayon he’s campaigning for the elections,” she says. “Pero hindi naman siya nakikialam sa career ko, so okay lang kahit di niya mapanood.”

What’s the difference between Pornstar 1 and 2? “Mas busog ang mata ng male viewers dito kasi apat na bagong sexy young stars ang ini-introduce namin. Mas na-enjoy rin namin ng mga kasama ko ang bagong movie kasi mas sanay na kami kay Direk Darryl Yap. Sa first one, naninibago pa kami sa mga ipinagawa niya sa amin. But this time, mas game na kami and we just enjoy what we’re doing. Wala ng ilangan kahit na sa mga risque na eksenang ipinagagawa sa amin.”

She says they all enjoyed more each other’s company.

“We’re all very thankful na we’re still active sa work namin. Nagkakasundo kaming lahat sa tsismisan during breaks at sa pagkain. We’re like a family at ang lahat, very professional pagdating sa trabaho. Para ko talagang kapatid sina Ate Ness and Ate Osang. At si Maui matapang siya and very protective, you can really depend on her.”

What advice did she give to the newbies working with them? “Basta ako, ang bilin ko, kapag sumikat kayo, don’t change. And always, show respect to other stars, specially to senior stars. At maging polite sa lahat, pati sa crew.”

MauiMaui’s family enjoys to watch her daring movie

MAUI Taylor says her family watched “Pornstar 1” and they all enjoyed it. “Gusto nila ang style ni Direk Darryl so I’m sure they will also watch ‘Pornstar 2’ na mas maraming nakakalokang eksena na ako mismo, nababaliw,” she says. “Ay, grabe ang lines na pinapa-deliver sa amin. Siguradong magba-viral na naman. But I’m sure it’s a film that everyone will enjoy kasi mas malalim ang aral niya sa dulo compared to the Pornstar 1.”

So she didn’t have any hesitations at all in doing controversial scenes? “None, no hesitations, kasi alam naman naming maganda ang kalalabasan ng mga pinaggagawa namin dito. Ganyan din kami sa ‘69+1’ ni Rose Van Ginkle and even dun sa rant series namin with Direk Darryl na ‘Kung Pwede Lang’. We know na part ‘yun ng humor niya, so we just trust him and no reservations at all.”

How is it working with Ness, Osang and Ara this time? “We’re more comfortable with each other. Na-miss namin ang isa’t isa kasi we shot ‘Pornstar 1’ last year and, after a year, itong ‘Pornstar 2’ naman. Para kaming pamilya na galing sa iba-ibang henerasyon. Mas marami kaming daldalan ngayon, lalo kami ni Miss O, lagi kaming may balita isa’t isa.”

What advice did she give to the newcomers in the movie? “I tell them na sa eksena, pag may ipinagagawa si Direk, itodo nyo na ‘yan kaysa ipaulit-ulit pa sa inyo. And don’t forget all the people you work with, batiin nila lahat ng tao sa set, pati na ang crew at staff.”
