Real-life exes Carlo Aquino and Angelica Panganiban are sending hearts aflutter with their upcoming film, Exes Baggage. The romantic drama that examines the realities of relationships—from the first smile that starts it all to the last fight that tips the scales—is the first major onscreen project this long-standing love team has worked on since their split more than 10 years ago.

Exciting their fans with all the sweet moments they've been sharing as of late, Carlo and Angelica are definitely begging the question: are they back together? Or are they, at least, thinking about giving love a second chance?

Carlo on his Exes Baggage character, Nix

"Nix is a perfectionist. Extreme siya, he sets standards with things and people, at kapag hindi nami-meet 'yung standards na 'yun, he gets disappointed and stressed. Introverted din siya, like me. Ayaw ko 'yung masyadong lumabas-labas at maraming tao."

 

Angelica on what she thinks of Carlo's performance

"Ever since, bilib ako sa kanya bilang artista. 'Yung kapag nag-perform siya, alam mong talagang ibang klaseng aktor siya. Hindi siya 'yung typical na napapanood lang natin na nasa soap opera, 'yung alam mong sobrang lalim niyang artista. Talagang 'yung impact ng bawat eksena, bawat linya, kung paano niya i-deliver, bawat tingin niya, ang intensity, iba."

 

Carlo on what he thinks viewers can learn from Exes Baggage

"Bago ka maging over-critical sa mga tao, pansinin mo muna 'yung sarili mo. Baka ikaw talaga 'yung may mali at sa iyo nanggagaling. Ikaw muna 'yung magbago. Tignan mo muna kung ikaw 'yung nasa posisyon na tama." 

 

 

Angelica on the CarGel reunion 

"Matagal na kaming friends. 15 years na kaming hindi nagkatrabaho. Matagal na kaming magkaibigan; noong naghiwalay kami, okay kaming naghiwalay eh. Good terms naman kami." 

 

Carlo on the challenges of working with Angelica 

"Sobrang comfortable ko na kasi kay Angelica. So, sa sobrang kumportable ko, hindi tama sa character. 'Yun 'yung sinasabi sa akin at paulit-ulit na mga scenes namin."

 

Angelica on their breakup and becoming friends  

"Dahan-dahan, hindi naman siyempre biglaan na [nakalimutan ang breakup]. Tapos, siguro dahil 'yung friends niya friends ko rin, isa lang and barkada namin, talagang nagkikita kami. Alam kong makakasalubong ko siya, makikita ko siya, and okay kami 'pag nagkikita. Nagkukumustahan kami... Hindi naman kami umabot sa asaran 'pag nagkikita [kami]. Mas nag-aasaran kami ngayon!"

 

 

Carlo on Angelica's portrayal of her character, Pia

"Pia has a strong personality. Ngayon ganu'n na rin si Ange; noon, noong mga bata pa kami, hindi siya masyadong nagsasalita. 'Yun 'yung isa na rin sa mga nagustuhan ko sa kanya ngayon. Kung ano 'yung nararamdaman ko sa moment, hindi ko sinasabi; siya, ipapaalam niya sa mga tao." 

 

Angelica on Carlo's qualities she loves the most

"Maasikaso siya, mabait din talaga. Hindi lumaki 'yung ulo niya. Iba 'yung respeto niya sa mga nakakatrabaho niya; mahal siya ng tao sa set."

 

Carlo on his breakup with Angelica

"'Yung breakup namin, ako may kasalanan. Nakalimutan ko na ‘yun, pero siya, hindi ko alam kung napatawad na niya ‘yun! Mas naging close kami ngayon na nagkakasama kami, at tinatawagan ko siya. Dati kasi, may girlfriend ako at paminsan-minsan lang kami nagkakasama. Pero ngayon, mas nag-uusap kami."

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

How do you deal with a break up? #ExesBaggage star, @jose_liwanag shares, “When it comes to breakups, hindi mo naman mamamadali ‘yun. Labas ka with friends and family, hanggang kaya na mawala sa isip mo ‘yung breakup.” Carlo admitted that accepting the breakup is the most difficult step in the healing process, but once you're over this, the rest just follows—forgiveness and letting go of anger. • .

Angelica on what she's like on set

"Ang gusto ko, 'pag trabaho tayo, trabaho tayo. Gusto ko masaya tayo sa work. Sana walang nega. Masarap kasing magtrabaho sa pleasant na environment. Pagod na nga 'yung ginagawa niyo, magsisigawan pa ba kayo? Kailangan din mabilis kang mag-move on sa stress sa trabaho mo. Feeling ko naman, happy naman silang ganu'n ako. Hindi na ako nagde-dwell ngayon sa isang problema."

 

Carlo on what he admires most about Angelica 

"'Yung pagiging outspoken niya. Sa dami ng beses na nasaktan siya, ang dami pa rin niyang pagmamahal na kaya niyang ibigay. Diba, ang sarap nu'n?"

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Love is a gamble – sometimes you win big, other times you fall short. Everyone, including our favorite celebrities, has felt the bitter sting of a break up, including @iamangelicap. The star’s past splits have left a lasting memory on her, yet her #ExesBaggage co-star and real-life ex, @jose_liwanag, admires Angelica's capacity to love again and again: “Sa dami ng beses na nasaktan siya, ang dami pa rin niyang pagmamahal na kaya niyang ibigay."
