As I am writing this, Kris Aquino is walking down the red carpet for the Hollywood premiere of Crazy Rich Asians. But, before all that madness, there was also a press junket where Canadian writer Elaine Lui was present. She also wrote about her experience for Lainey Gossip.
She started off by sharing how emotional she felt to see an all-Asian cast in a major Hollywood film. “It’s an experience I’m still processing, an experience I still don’t have words for.” She then talked about the different women she met like Michelle Yeoh, Gemma Chan, and Constance Wu.
Elaine also gushed about Kris. “There is, however, someone who may outshine them all. Chris Pang, who plays Colin Khoo in the movie (he’s the one getting married), calls her the true ‘Crazy Rich Asian.’ That would be Kris Aquino, arguably the most famous woman in the Philippines. My ma, the Chinese Squawking Chicken, called her the most beautiful woman in the movie.”
Way to represent, Kris! Now we really can’t wait to see the movie.
