MAN OF FEW WORDS: They may kiss, quarrel, kiss and make up anew in their new TV series, but Heart Evangelista maintains that leading man Dennis Trillo refuses to talk to her off-cam.
Those close to Dennis claim the actor is by nature shy. In an interview, Dennis said he found it uncomfortable in the beginning to engage newly married Heart in sexy scenes, which are part and parcel of their new series “Juan Happy Love Story.” The new GMA romcom, set to premiere on May 16, is described as naughty and sexy.
Dennis and Heart first acted together in “Dwarfina,” a completely wholesome series where Heart played a dwarf! Now, what can be less sexy than that?

NAUGHTY AND SEXY: In the series, Dennis Trillo is Juan, playboy-businessman. He meets Happy, played by Heart Evangelista, a feisty and family-oriented woman who relies on signs to find her lifetime partner, The One.
A trailer shown during the show’s media launch caught Heart doing offbeat scenes, those one will not normally associate with her. Known for her wholesome image throughout her career, Heart is shown as a seductress, someone who indulges in kinky sex, a sadomasochist.
In the beginning, Heart says she was embarrassed to do those scenes. To this day, she says she would cringe while watching certain scenes that simulated dressing down, or dropping her clothes.
Then again, she figured she must have fun doing the show. Her husband, Sen. Chiz, has been supportive.
“I show him the script, and it’s all right by him. Tumatawa siya sa mga eksena ko,” she said.
Heart acknowledged that she was grateful for having a husband who’s totally understanding of her profession.
