Ella Cruz is anxious over the nearing playdate of her and Julian Trono’s launching movie

Being groomed as love team partner of Julian Trono and being officially launched in “Fan Girl, Fan Boy” has got Ella Cruz in pins and needles.

“’Yung pressure na nararamdaman ko kapag sinasabi ni direk na napanood na daw nila Boss Vic (del Rosario, VIVA big boss) ’yung movie, tapos sinasabi nila ’yung feedback nila, kinakabahan talaga ako,” Ella said.

“Lagi ko tinatanong si direk, totoo ba ito? Totoo bang matatapos na natin ’yung movie? Totoo bang malapit na tayong ipalabas?”

More pressure is due as her love team with Julian is now being compared to that of James Reid and Nadine Lustre’s JaDine, also from Viva’s stable of artists.

Ella would rather downplay the similarity.

“There’s only one JaDine. Wala ng makakapalit pa doon. Gagawa kami ng sarili naming path at tsaka iba ang nabibigay nila. Iba rin ang kaya naming ibigay though parehas kaya ng music at tsaka acting. Pero kaya din naman i-develop or i-form ’yung sa amin sa ibang bagay o sa ibang atake,” she said.

How about the other love teams like KathNiel and LizQuen?

“Merong competition pero parang hindi eh, kasi iba-ibang klase ng love team at iba-iba ang naibibigay,” she quipped.

“Fan Girl, Fan Boy” is a Joyce Bernal production for VIVA Films and N2 Productions. Joyce is one of the producers of “Kita Kita” which raked in more than R300 million at the box office recently.

“Isa pa ’yan na nakaka-pressure. Pero katulad nga po ng sinabi ni direk Joyce Bernal, iba po ’yung market ng ‘Kita Kita’ at ibang klase po ng pelikula ang ‘Fan Girl, Fan Boy.’ Pero kami rin kasi hindi ’yung kita ’yung priority namin, hindi ’yun ’yung nasa iniisip namin eh. It’s more on kung magugustuhan at mamahalin din ba kami ng tao at kung tatanggapin din ba nila ’yung pelikula namin.”

Since they’re in a love team, Ella was asked if there’s anything romantic going on between her and Julian.

While saying “napag-uusapan naman namin ang mga ganoong bagay,” Ella maintained career is her “priority.”

“Sa ngayon kasi alam namin ang priority namin. Katulad ng sinabi niya (Julian) ay hindi naman magiging mahirap siguro kung gugustuhin namin right here, right now (na maging kami). Pero sa ngayon kasi ay ini-enjoy namin (ang friendship). Ang dami naming ginagawang projects together. Kung ira-rush namin ang mga bagay-bagay ay baka mahirapan kaming dalawa rin. Kung ano’ng meron kami ngayon ay sobrang naiintidihan namin ang isa’t-isa. Parang mas pabor kung ano ang meron sa amin ngayon,” she explained.

But she made clear if and when Julian decides to court her, he will make the grade.

“Oo naman kasi he’s very sincere. Isa siya sa pinaka-sincere na nakilala ko and that’s very rare,” she said.

“Fan Girl, Fan Boy” opens in theaters nationwide on Sept. 6.
