Being one of the most respected directors in the industry, Cathy Garcia-Molina is a well-known frank individual.
Many actors and actresses admitted of crying on set or in home because of the award-winning director’s sharp tongue.
And just recently, she made showbiz headlines as she was quoted on describing Joshua Garcia as ‘mukhang tan*a.’
But on a recent blogger’s conference for the rom-com film ‘Unexpectedly Yours’, Molina was quick to explain her side.
She said, “Naku pinagalitan ko nga ‘yan first day namin kasi ang dami kong naririnig tungkol sa kanya na lumalaki na raw ulo niya, sabi ko, ayaw ko ng ganun, e, ayaw ko ng taong nauunang umakyat sa ulo ang lahat ng success, so, hindi naman pala!”
Apparently, she reprimanded Joshua for allegedly being too boastful and ‘fame-centered.’
However, she was too honest to admit that she was wrong about her initial reaction.
She added, “That’s why ako ngayon ayaw ko nang makinig sa tsismis. I have to work with the person before I give my judgement and I was wrong about Joshua. Sabi ko kay Joshua: ‘Josh, mukha kang tanga, pero ang cute mong mukhang tanga.’”
Direk Cathy then explained her stance, “Hindi pangit yun! For me, it’s a good thing especially in rom-coms, when doing a rom-com.”
The prolific director went on, “Ang hilig namin diyan ay pagmukhaing tanga yung artista. Si Joshua, he does it well. Kasi may ibang artista pinagmukha mong tanga, mukha talagang tanga, tapos sasabihin ko, hindi na, hindi na, change tayo, kasi hindi naman pwede ipalabas yun na mukha siyang tanga.”
Also, she praised the actor for being mature enough to carry the stress.
She recalled, “May eksena nga sa movie na naiiyak siya, pero pinigil niya, nag-away yung utak ko, because I saw his capability. Ibigay mo sa ibang artista yun, hindi nila ma-i-carry yun. Pero si Joshua nagawa niya yun.”
She also mirrored her appreciation to Joshua’s physical appearance especially she witnessed Joshua’s growth from his budding years in Pinoy Big Brother to now’s teen heartthrob.
“Si Joshua naman, since PBB, sinabi ko sa kanya noong nagkita kami recently ‘mukha ka nang tao.’ Kasi, di ba, noong nasa PBB siya, mukha siyang dugyot, puro pimples pa, siguro sa puyat. Noong nakita ko na siya ngayon, sabi ko sa kanya, ‘anak, gwapo ka pala,’ she closed with a laugh.
