In this sure box office hit, Julia Barretto plays Zoey, an ambitious young woman after her dream job, while Joshua Garcia plays Joko, a straight man who accidentally got a fighting chance for the job that Zoey wants but has to pretend to be gay to be able to keep it.

In an exclusive interview with the top love team, Joshua shares how he was able to get in touch with his feminine side for the role. Joshua shares, “Actually kasi po dati may ginawa na akong role na beki, as in nag-cross dress, shinave ko talaga yung buong legs ko, yung buhok ko sa kili-kili, lahat. Nag-beki talaga ako, so may background na rin ako. And then sa set kasi, may mga make-up artist doon, may mga beki din so nagtatanong-tanong ako. Ini-observe ko sila kung paano sila kapag ganito, kapag ganyan.”

When asked what Julia’s reactions would be when they would be doing a scene together where Joshua is gay she answers, “Never ako na-weirdohan, yung first shooting days namin, the first few scenes, ang dami-daming takes talaga kasi hindi ako napipigilan tumawa so naka-ilang takes. Pero towards the ends nasanay na din ako. Kailangan din kasi in the film I don’t know naman nag-papanggap so it should be a normal thing. So I had to get to used to it kasi syempre malapit na ang showing so hindi na pwedeng ilang takes na din. But it was fun to watch, he really pulled it off.”

I Love You, Hater is now showing in cinemas nationwide!
