Kris Aquino admits owning second hand timepieces

She may have the affluence associated with her name but TV host Kris Aquino revealed she owns pre-owned timepieces.
“Vintage na relo, yes, [I do own some],” Kris shared on “Segunda Mano” presscon Monday, Dec. 12.
“May collection ako from ''70s and '80s [na mga relo],” she added.
Aquino came to buy the age-old watches because “may nag-alok lang na nangailangan ng pera,” adding that she bought them in bulk. Since those were second-hand timepieces, Aquino consulted a geomancer on how to remove the bad vibes that the items might carry with it.
 “Ibabad daw sa rock salt sa morning sun. When the sun nandoon na para madala na kung ano ang nandu’n,” she said.
After talk of her material possessions, the loquacious TV host did share how she was able to pull the strings just to make Dingdong her leading man in “Segunda Mano,” which is one of the entries in this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF).
“To be perfectly honest, 2010 pa lang, December of 2010, si Ms. Annette Gozon-Abrogar kausap ko na. But Malou Santos said, ‘Bakit hindi na lang si Dingdong ang gumawa sa atin (ng pelikula)?’”
Aquino admitted that she convinced Dingdong to make the movie “dahil sinabi ko na kung lalaban tayo sa ganitong klaseng laban dapat doon tayo sa mabibigyan tayo ng maganda at maximum na exposure. Sabi ko ngayon lang tayo magkakasama. Maganda na napakametikuloso  ng mga makakatrabaho natin. I think si direk Joyce  pinaglaban talaga siya ni Dingdong.”
She assured that “Segunda Mano” is a quality movie and even bets her name on it.
“Actually, the trailer is nothing,” Aquino quipped. “Sorry, the movie is one million times  better than the trailer,” she reasoned out. “Doon sa last twenty minutes, sinabi ko nga kaya kong itaya hindi lang ang pangalan ko kundi pangalan ng buong angkan namin. It’s the best 20 minutes I’ve ever seen of any movie I’ve done.”
She’s also all praises for her leading man, Dingdong, saying, “Honestly, it’s not my movie. It’s Dingdong Dantes’ movie.  Kung performance at performance ang pag-uusapan natin, he should be best actor… not just for the festival but for the entire year.”
