Kim Chiu said she has no plans of watching the acclaimed crime-thriller "On the Job (OTJ)," which was released Wednesday in theaters nationwide, explaining she has no interest in "hard action" movies.
The 23-year-old actress was asked on the matter shortly after a press conference held Tuesday night for her month-long starring stint in the weekend fantasy anthology "Wansapanataym."
On whether she is seeing "OTJ," Chiu said, "Ay, hindi po [ako manonood]. Hindi po ako mahilig sa hard action. [Gusto ko] feel-good, saya-sayahan."
Directed by Erik Matti and co-produced by Star Cinema and Reality Entertainment, "OTJ" stars Piolo Pascual, Gerald Anderson, Joel Torre and Joey Marquez.
Torre and Anderson portray inmates temporarily released from jail to become contract killers, while Pascual and Marquez are law enforcers assigned on their trail.
Anderon is Chiu's former boyfriend, having separated in 2010. While the former couple went on to co-star in a number of projects since then, Chiu reportedly cut her ties with the actor and her former best friend, actress Maja Salvador, early this year, when the two admitted having a relationship.
Ready but cautious
On Tuesday, Chiu said she is ready to enter a new relationship, but added she is "taking her time" when it comes to getting to know a potential partner.
"Darating din tayo diyan. Hindi naman kailangan sapilitan, kusa niyo pong malalaman kung sinuman po ang nagpapatibok ng puso ko. Hindi ko naman itatago, at tsaka na sa tamang edad na ako," she said.
Admitting she misses having a boyfriend, the actress nonetheless added, "It takes time know someone para tumanggal 'yung relationship. Kasi pag mabilisan, gano'n din, mabilisan, para ka lang nagpalit ng damit. 'Ay, ayoko na dito,' gano'n."
On the subject of her close relationship with on-screen leading man Xian Lim, who has openly expressed admiration for her, Chiu merely surmised they must be "exclusively" dating as they are not seeing other people for now.
"Thank you kasi nandiyan po siya para sa akin. Pero wala naman pong bakuran effect. Wala naman po, wala naman pong gano'n siguro," the actress said, when asked if she thinks her close ties with Lim may be discouraging to other potential suitors.
Noting the "fairy godmother" story of her "Wansapanataym" mini-series, Chiu was also asked if she has any wish when it comes to love.
She responded: "Huwag mo na i-wish, kasi minsan 'yung wish mo mali eh. Hayaan mo na 'yung destiny 'yung magsabi about love."
