EXCLUSIVE: Never-Before-Seen Metro.Style Photos Of "Exes Baggage" Stars Carlo Aquino & Angelica Panganiban
"Hindi ako fan ng sarili ko eh. So hindi ko alam kung paano tatanggapin ng mga tao. 'Di ko alam kung ano 'yung mararamdaman ko about it," joked Angelica Panganiban about Exes Baggage, her newest film with real-life ex-boyfriend, Carlo Aquino.
Thr 31-year-old was undoubtedly jittery about the movie, but with its extremely successful premier, scores of CarGel fans lining up for their tickets, and early positive reviews rolling in, the actress might just have enough reason to change her mind.
Besides, how can Angelica be without confidence when she and Carlo looked that good together?

Audiences enjoyed the Dan Villegas piece's premier night at SM Megamall last night as it came with an extra special treat: black carpet appearances by the film's leading couple and co-stars, as well as celebrity moviegoers excited to catch the romantic drama's first screening.
CarGel fans were in a frenzy when Carlo and Angelica turned up, hand in hand, bashfully smiling at reporters and camera phones alike. She was subtle yet scene-stealing in dark gray trousers and a matching strapless top, while he didn't disappoint in his complementing gray plaid suit. Together, they were a vision, exuding their signature aura of playful chemistry.
Much to the delight of fans, Angelica planted a—wait for it—kiss on Carlo's neck during a brief Q&A session in front of watchful eyes. It wasn't the only moment of PDA the crowed lapped up, either; Angelica unhesitatingly fixed Carlo's locks from time to time, making sure he looked camera-ready and swoon-worthy every second of the night.
Fans holding CarGel banners (and there were many!) screamed in joy at every moment just like this.
Joining these two sweethearts were director Dan Villegas himself and co-star Dionne Monsanto, as well as celebrity buddies like Ria Atayde, Elisse Josson, Heaven Peralejo, Lovely Abella, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, Kisses Delavin, Valerie Concepcion, entertainment reporter Gretchen Fullido, and even volleyball star Alyssa Valdez.
The onscreen couple got front row seats to the film and was treated to a great reception of the movie once credits rolled. To celebrate a job well done, the movie's cast went over to Reserve for a well-deserved night out.
Exes Baggage, a film that minces no words or feelings when it comes to the realities of relationships both good and bad, is now showing in 200 theaters nationwide. The movie is the first project to be released by Black Sheep.
So, what do you say? Shall we see you at the movies? See you there!
