There is no doubt Kathryn Bernardo is a superstar of her generation.

That status was cemented Tuesday with the announcement of the record-breaking gross of “Hello, Love, Goodbye,” her lastest film with long-time collaborator Cathy Garcia-Molina.

The OFW drama has totaled P880,603,490 in worldwide earnings as of September 3, making it the highest grossing Philippine film of all time, according to producer Star Cinema.

It surpassed the record set by “The Hows of Us” — also a Star Cinema production starring Bernardo and directed by Garcia-Molina — which grossed over P800 million at the conclusion of its international run in 2018.

With the box-office milestone of “Hello, Love, Goodbye,” Bernardo and Garcia-Molina now hold the distinction of being the only Filipino actress and director with two films earning more than P800 million each.

Bernardo was in tears Tuesday, as she took her turn to give a speech during the thanksgiving party celebrating the success of “Hello, Love, Goodbye.”

The 23-year-old actress, whose acting career spans 16 years, admitted she had been apprehensive about taking on the project, noting it would be her first romance film without Padilla, her boyfriend of seven years and perennial leading man.

“Tinanong ko ‘yung sarili ko, ‘Ready na ba? Kaya ko na ba ‘to mag-isa, na wala si DJ (Padilla)?’” she said, recalling her hesitation to accept the role. “Ngayon, na-realize ko na kung hindi ko tinanggap ‘tong project na ‘to, iyon ‘yung biggest regret of my life.”

“Hello, Love, Goodbye” saw the first team-up of Bernardo and Alden Richards — a noteworthy pairing given their backgrounds. Aside from being homegrown talents of rival networks ABS-CBN and GMA-7, Bernardo and Richards are identified with two of the biggest love teams in local showbiz, KathNiel and AlDub.

Against their expectations, the untested tandem got overwhelmingly positive response, not only going by the movie’s box-office performance, but the goodwill built among their loyal fans, old and new.

“Hindi ko alam, grabe,” an ecstatic Bernardo said, when asked for her reaction to beating her own record. “Dito ko napatunayan na kapag minahal mo ‘yung project o ginagawa mo, babalik sa ‘yo. Kung ano ‘yung tinanim mo, aanihin mo talaga. Siguro, nag-reflect lang kung paano ‘yung pagmamahal na binigay namin sa bawat pelikula. I’m really thankful. [It’s] surreal. Hindi ko alam kung paano nangyayari ‘to ngayon.”

    2. What the rush? Lol. She is a starmagic artist and Cathy is exclusive for them. And besides, Kathryn is only 23 and highly priced talent of the network to date. She had other directors like Mae Cruz and Olivia Lamasan din naman in the past and in fairness to Kathryn, all of her directors have had not so good box office results with dinother artists naman. Blessed lang talaga si Kathryn all the stars aligned for her. Mabait kasing bata and may talent talaga. Mahal din sya ng masa.

Yung dalawang movies nyang all time highest grosser are more than enough to validate her being an excellent actress.

      Delete
    9. I don’t see the point why you guys are attacking 1:03. I see her comment as constructive criticism and not as an attack on Kathryn’s acting. Si Sarah Geronimo nga na magaling na kumanta, sumayaw at umarte, nagt-training pa sa ibang bansa para mapahusay pa niya ang sarili niya.
      I believe Kathryn can achieve greater heights and be more phenomenal if she works for it.

      Delete
    10. 2:20 teh high box office gross doesn’t necessarily equate to talent. Most of the time it’s because of popularity. Look at all the movies that have done well at the box office, not all of the actors were actually talented.

      Delete
    11. auntie, that’s a good and sound advice, but you’re telling the wrong girl. especially the part na “sayang ang fame kung walang improvement”. kukunin ba ng directors for big projects and susugal ba sila if walang improvement every year? hindi nabakante si bagets since going bulilit. walang sinasayang na time, balanced ang work life, love life, family life and social life. trust me, hindi sayang ang fame nya, she made her mark in the industry.

    14. 4:35 what is the point of your comment? are you saying she is not talented? she has been acting since she was young, hoarding box office hit films, back to back tv series, endorsements, awards. what is the talent you are looking for? again, just leave it on the fact that you will never see her gift because y’all do not like her and like someone else to shine instead. enough with the fake concern and real time shadiness. hirap i-please juice ko, magpahug kayo sa nanay nyo

    15. 5:55 tumpak ka jan baks! hindi nila makikita galing ni kathryn simply because may iba silang bias. just look at it this way, hindi sya pagkagagastusan ng casual viewers kung hindi sila nagagalingan sakanya. bakit ko sasayangin ang pera ko sa movie ng isang artista na hindi magaling?

Never pumatol sa bashers and when people backstab her she leaves them without making a big fuss. People say you are weak but I totally see you as a strong woman. It takes strength to stay grounded after all your achievement, it takes strength to smile despite ridicules being hurled at you. Ikaw ang dapat tinutularan ng maraming kababaihan at kabataan. Maganda, mabait, matalino, wagi sa family, lovelife at career. Nasa yo na talaga lahat.

    2. Yan tayo eh. Kaya kumita ang pelikula dahil sinuportahan to ng casual viewers. Bat di na lang sabihin na maganda kasi talaga yung movie at magaling sila both kaya achieve sa masang pinoy. May million followers si alden pero first tym nya din magkamovie na ganyan kalaki ang gross. Kasikatan nya during aldub pero di ganyan kalaki ang kinita ng movie nila ni maine. Casual viewers ang bumitbit 60 percent of the earnings. Duh.

    3. Kapal ng mga KNs. Kaya naging box office ang movie because si Alden ang leading man niya. Like her, madami din fans si Alden, hello... Kaya lang naman box office success mga movies niya its because she has DJ and Alden as her partners. Subukan ipartner ang babaeng ito sa not so famous na actor, for sure semplang sa takilya...

    4. Why would you compare that movie when she was not even the lead actress,it was a reunion movie for sharon and richard and was promoted like that.The story doesnt revolve her. The fact madethat she it back to back proves that she is really loved and her talent for acting is lit.

      Delete
    5. It is not the fans that will make movie turns box office, it's the story and how the actor performed. Do not discredit someone dahil lang sa indenial ka sa sucess niya. Even before sa last movie nya they were not with big stars. And if ever man na ipair sya sa big star dapat lang talaga kasi sikat sya alangan na idedemote mo at ipapair sa starlet. Pag big star dapat magagaling dn kasama mo sa next project.

    6. Baks hindi naman si Kathryn ang lead star sa movie ni mega. Saka pumatok ung HLG sa casual movie goers kasi first time na LT si alden and kath dun and trailer pa lang, oozing with chemistry na talaga.

    10. Support lang naman kasi sila ni Tommy don hindi mo nga ramdam yung role don ni Kathryn kasi naka focused talaga ang story kay Mega at Richard Gomez. And yep nakuha nila kiliti ng casual viewers halos lahat na nababasa ko sa Twitter na feedback galing sa non fans which is sila pa nagrerequest ng part2 so ibig sabat hin tumatak talaga sa casual viewers yung movie kaya pumatok ng bongga.

    12. Also as a moviegoer I did not watch HLG for the hype nor because I am a supporter of neither. The whole team including the supporting cast was brilliant. The acting of both the leads was complementary. Hindi sila nagsapawan and it felt genuine. Probably because it was a new team up. I hope other loveteams will learn from this movie's success.

  16. Grabe tiba tiba ang ABS sa kanya. Malakas kasi din sya sa masa at mabait din. Masipag. Walang masamang tinapay.

    1. 1:33, kaya ayaw mag experiment ng ABS ke Kathryn because they know may limitations siya... 23 yrs old na siya, matanda na. Puro pakilig at love story lang ang mga movies niya.

    3. 2:39 23 is not even old yet. she's just starting. There are much older celebrities that are still stuck with their roles and genres. Hindi kailangan mag madali ng abs and especially kathryn, she'll grow in her own time and pace. She's getting more mature, doing more mature and out of her comfort zone scenes.
