ROB Guinto is one of the busiest among current Vivamax bombshells. She was just seen in “Ex-Deal” as a model who shares her boyfriend with another model and in “Virgin Forest” as the victim of a prostitution ring who runs away in the jungle totally naked. She’ll now be seen in “Bula” as the girlfriend of Gab Lagman who figures in a bizarre love triangle with Ayanna Misola.
She’s also currently in Jay Altarejos’ “Memories of a Love Story” as a lonely girl grieving over the death of her friend in the pandemic. She gets drunk and has a long dance sequence with lead actors Oliver Aquino and Migs Almendras. She later on goes skinny dipping with them in her birthday suit. It was a short role but she makes quite an impact.
Does she mind when people chide her for being a sexy star?
“No, they can say anything they want, but I’m just thankful to Viva for giving me a second chance,” she says. “Kasi the first time dinala ako sa kanila, hindi pa ako ready to go sexy, so tumanggi ako.
I’m more of a model kasi. But during the pandemic, nawala lahat ng events that need models. So nawalan din ako ng income.”
This is so sad as she’s the breadwinner in her family. “Maraming umaasa sa akin. So nang bigyan ako ng Viva ng another chance, malaki ang naging tulong noon sa akin at sa family ko. Dito talaga ako nabigyan ng sunud-sunod na projects and I’m just so thankful sa Viva para sa nagawa nila for me. Kaya pag may project na ibinibigay sila sa akin, alangan namang mag-inarte pa ako.”
In “Bula”, she plays Celine, the girlfriend of a policeman, Gab Lagman as Jacob. She and Gab take their dirty clothes to a laundry shop where the attendant is Ayanna Misola as Meldie. Little do Jacob and Celine know that Meldie has designs on Celine’s boyfriend and is determined to seduce him and snatch him away from her.
It’s the first time for her to work with Gab Lagman and it’s the first time for him to do a daring movie, so she really tried her best to help him execute their sexy love scenes.
“Gentleman si Gab, sobrang mabait kaeksena at masayang kasama sa set,” she says. “Nagtutulungan kami sa mga eksena, lalo na sa most challenging part sa climax ng movie na may patayang naganap. Siempre, I cannot reveal the details dahil spoiler. But it was so challenging for me kasi very brutal ang execution. Madugo talaga, pero he was there para umalalay sa akin.”
She says she hopes to work with him again in the future. “Kasi very caring siya. Nang sumakit ang ulo ko sa shooting, he was so concerned at hinilot-hilot pa niya. During shooting breaks, nakakapagkuwentuhan kami tungkol sa mga buhay-buhay namin kaya naging mas comfortable kami sa isa’t isa sa challenging scenes na ipinagawa sa amin ni Direk Bobby Bonifacio.”
