This is the most awaited movie of the year and just like me, and the millions of fans of social media phenomenon AlDub (which they are fondly called) are excited about seeing "Imagine You and Me" a film made for national bae Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza. The two have been inseparable since their accidental chemistry happened a few eons ago in the longest noontime show in the country Eat Bulaga.
Now I've already had the privilege to talk to Alden a couple of times and I know he's been so down to earth still, but I haven't had the chance to actually interview Maine so my plan was to ask her a lot of questions in this blog conference. Unfortunately we were allowed like 2 questions, but I was so happy how she answered it liberally and quite long. She actually had mentioned (while she was answering one question from another blogger) that she thinks she's a "pessimistic" person. I was really surprised (actually shocked) she said that out of the blue but when she explained and said that she was always like that and Direk also mentioned how Maine was so hard on herself during scenes in IYAM because once they did it on screen and she sees some little things she doesn't like.
She goes ahead and says it to Direk and everybody on set so they can shoot it again. I think in some way it made her part of the creative process, not that she's a perfectionist. I actually think Maine wants this movie to be good because they are dedicating this to the millions of fans that have been there to support them and they don't want to short change YOU and ME. :)
In that short exchange, and the little introduction I had with Maine made me feel how much she's telling people that she's real. She knows how much love she's getting but ultimately she wants people to know she's the same person as when she started. I don't know about you but when I see them together, I don't think Alden and Maine is doing this for kicks. I do feel this is something REAL, something that people may think is just for screen but for me, I feel they're really together. It's the actions, the small things that they do when they're with each other. You can't question that.
Anyway, there's another reason for you guys and gals to be happy because Imagine You and Me will finally be seen on theaters tomorrow. To celebrate that, let me share with you some photos from the #IYAMBlogcon which happened a few days ago. I've also included videos of the interview on the bottom of this post. Please make your friends know it's showing on July 13, 2016 and also on the last week of July for other countries. Enjoy!

|They had to stop a few times because they had to ask Direk about the things they wanted to tell us, they don't want to spoil the movie.|
