Anne Hathaway Plays the “It Girl” in “Ocean’s 8”

The target of Sandra Bullock's all-women scheme in "Ocean's 8" is The Met Gala, but they won't be taking cash.  Instead, they plan to steal the Toussaint: a unique diamond necklace so valuable it stays locked away in an impenetrable vault in the bowels of the Cartier mansion.  The key is to convince Cartier to let it out of the vault.  

And the only way to do that is to put it around the neck of this year's designated Gala Chair: current "It girl," Daphne Kluger, whom Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway plays to perfection.

Hathaway reveals that she first heard about "Ocean's 8" from an unusual source.  "A maĆ®tre d' at a restaurant told me that Sandra Bullock was doing a new 'Ocean's' movie with a female cast, and I remember thinking, 'That sounds like the best job ever,' because I loved the earlier movies.  And then [director] Gary Ross called me and said, 'I have a diva for you to play.'  

"It was so much fun becoming someone who occupies a world I know so well, but hopefully isn't anything like me," she laughs.  "Daphne is a bit wild and over-the-top…and she's a lot smarter than people realize."

"Annie embraced her role with so much force and gusto and delivered such a bold performance in terms of how far she was willing to go," says Ross.  "She is an amazing person, as well as a talented actress.  We had a terrific time."

Hathaway shares, "Gary and I have been wanting to work together for a long time and it was wonderful creating this character with him."

The opportunity to work with a cast of actresses became a major draw for Hathaway who concludes, "Making a movie is a certain kind of shared experience, but when it's you plus seven other women, there is so much more common ground to start with.  That created an effortlessness in working together that made it so much fun."

About "Ocean's 8"

Five years, eight months, 12 days...and counting.  That's how long Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) - just released from prison - has been concocting the greatest heist of her storied career. 
She knows what it's going to take - a team of the best in their field, starting with her former partner-in-crime Lou (Cate Blanchett).  Together, they recruit a crew of specialists: jeweler Amita (Kaling); street con Constance (Awkwafina); expert fence Tammy (Paulson); hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna); and fashion designer Rose Weil (Bonham Carter). 

The target is $150 million in diamonds - diamonds that will adorn the neck of world-famous actress Daphne Kluger (Hathaway), who will be center stage at the event of the year, The Met Gala.

Their plan appears rock solid, but it will need to be flawless if the team is to get in and get away - all in plain sight. 

In Philippine cinemas June 13"Ocean's 8" is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Thousands of Kids Get New School Bags Through Operation Sagip's "Gusto Kong Mag-Aral" Project

Thousands of Filipino children are going to school this June with greater hope and excitement after receiving brand new bags and school supplies through the “Gusto Kong Mag-Aral” project of ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation, Inc.’s (ALKFI) Operation Sagip.


Like last year, Operation Sagip has been going around different elementary schools in the country to distribute learning kits to students and further inspire them to pursue their education.

As of May 30, the team has already given away 62,892 bags to school-aged children in provinces as far as Abra in Luzon, Samar in Visayas, and Tawi Tawi in Mindanao. A total of 105,000 kids are expected to benefit in the project this school year.

Jun Dungo, the head of ABS-CBN Integrated Public Service and director of Operation Sagip, thanked donors for once again supporting the “Gusto Kong Mag-Aral” project, and for believing in the mission of the campaign.

The future of the country is in the hands of our youth. We hope that through this project, ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya is able to help ensure a bright future for the nation by encouraging our children to learn, stay in school, and finish their studies. None of these would be possible if not for the continued support of our partner-individuals and organizations,” he said.

While “Gusto Kong Mag-Aral” was launched only in 2017, Operation Sagip has been active in championing the education of Filipino youth through its classroom construction projects and “Ronda Eskwela,” a project similar to “Gusto Kong Mag-Aral.”


Apart from the areas mentioned above, the project has also reached Mountain Province, Occidental Mindoro, Apayao, Ilocos Sur, Cavite, Rizal, and Laguna in Luzon; Capiz, Aklan, Antique, Leyte, Bohol, Biliran, Eastern Samar, and Iloilo in Visayas; and Lanao Del Norte, Sulu, Bukidnon, Surigao Del Norte, Surigao Del Sur, Davao Oriental, Zamboanga Del Norte, and Compostela Valley in Mindanao.

10 Ways to Jumpstart a Healthier, Happier Digestive System

The world’s leading 1 digestive health products - Essentiale® Forte P and Dulcolax® - join hands in a campaign to make our digestive systems happier and healthier. Together, the two brands take action on World Digestive Health Day on May 29th, reminding people about the importance of keeping their digestive system happy and healthy.

So how do you keep your gut healthy and happy? Let us count the ways:

1. Junk the junk. Avoid eating processed foods (chips, cold cuts), breads and pastas.

2. Go for gold. Probiotic foods feed the good bacteria in your digestive tract. So what should you go for? A plant-based diet would be good. If not, make sure you have more nuts and seeds in your diet. Check out pistachios, bananas, garlic, onion, wheat, oats, quinoa, millet and chia.

3. Avoid unnecessary drinking of antibiotics. Taking antibiotics may have a negative effect on the bacteria and other microbes living in your intestines. Antibiotics may kill healthy bacteria. Before taking antibiotics, ask your doctor questions about then and do some research. Get a second opinion if possible and don’t self-medicate.

4. Keep your liver in check. Instead of steaks and fried chicken, opt for taking in less fats from your food as these can lead to having too much fat stored in the liver. A fatty liver is a sign of an unhealthy digestive system and will affect your entire health. Keep your liver in check with Essentiale® Forte P. It that contains essential phospholipids that repair damaged liver cell membrane, regenerate lost phospholipids and restore normal functions of the liver 3 , keeping your liver healthy for a happy digestive system.

5. Take a good probiotic. Probiotics are micro-organisms that provide health benefits when consumed. Probiotics help with digestion and stimulate the immune system. They rebuild intestinal flora for better digestive health for kids. It also stops diarrhea symptoms and addresses other intestinal issues. Consult your doctor to learn more about the benefits of Probiotics!

6. Water is important. Hydration is the key to having a healthy digestive system. Constipation is often the result of dehydration in the colon. Drinking at least 8 16-oz glasses of water a day will ensure that your stool will be soft and easy to pass.

7. Taking a laxative helps. Frequent constipation is a sign that your digestive system is in poor health. If you haven’t moved your bowels in days, don’t just suffer. Dulcolax® stimulates bowel movement and softens hard dry stool to treat constipation and other bowel irregularities. Dulcolax®, the world’s No. 1 laxative 4 , ensures you have a happy tummy ensures that you’ll have a happy tummy in the morning.

8. You’ve got to move it. Regular exercises like brisk walking or running will get things moving, so to speak. Allot at least 10 minutes a day to exercise. Make it 15 mins daily if you can.

9. Chill, don’t stress. Your work life is stressful enough; find time to chill and relax. Don’t bring work home. Find little pockets of relaxation throughout the day. For instance, when it gets to be too much, do some breathing exercises for a few minutes. Stress can affect the health of your digestive system.

10. Get enough sleep. If eight hours of sleep is not doable, make sure you get six hours every night. Lack of sleep can cause gas and poor digestion.


If you build and maintain a healthy and happy digestive system, your quality of life will be better, too. If you skip the bad habits and embrace the good ones, you will have less health issues and a healthier, happier life! 

Make sure you regularly consult your doctor if you feel any symptoms.

Chris Pratt, The Alpha Male Takes on "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" Showing in PH Theaters on June 6

Chris Pratt has firmly secured himself as one of Hollywood’s most sought-after leading men.  He most recently returned to the wildly popular role of Star-Lord in Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War.  

Now, Pratt reprises his iconic raptor master role in Universal Pictures’ Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the sequel to the 2015 global megahit Jurassic World.

Says director J.A. Bayona, “Chris created an amazing character, providing Owen Grady with genuine charm and comedy.  He has an honest inner strength that somehow communicates to the audience that he will always do the right thing.”

Pratt shares what about this series continues to resonate with audiences: “The success of Jurassic World starts with the success of Jurassic Park.  The original movie is just so beloved.  It captured the imagination of an entire generation, and there was a world hungry to see a new version of this story…one with all the technological advancements that have been made in filmmaking since 1993.”

Working with Bayona proved a rewarding experience for Pratt.  “J.A. is a huge movie buff,” the performer says.  “He particularly loves a movie with an edge, and he’s bringing that to this film.  He is playing, not so much with what is there but what might be around the corner.  These movies are all about science, imagination and suspense.  J.A.’s a master.

Very few in the Jurassic world can understand the brutal physicality of one of these films, so Pratt appreciated the chance to collaborate once again with Bryce Dallas Howard.  “I’m teamed with Bryce, who has an incredible work ethic; she is passionate about every step of the process.  Combine that partnership with our director’s vision, and we’ve got a pretty good handle on what we need to make this the best Jurassic adventure it can be.”

Claire and Owen have been living separate lives, but are reunited for a common goal.  While she has made it her mission to protect and save all the creatures, she knows that what will get Owen back on the island is the chance to rescue Blue, the Velociraptor to whom he has the closest connection.  

Much of what’s happened between Claire and Owen is unspoken, but they’ve gone through traumatic experiences together at Jurassic World and have each handled that differently,” reflects Pratt. 

Owen believes there is no way to make yourself feel better; you have to move on and live your life.  To bury yourself in guilt like Claire’s done is wrong, and for Owen to ignore what they’ve gone through is also flawed…so they need one another.  You see that these characters are drawn to one another and destined to be together…but circumstances have not allowed that to happen.

Pratt’s role required a great deal of stunt work, and there was many a night after filming that his bruised self fell into a deep sleep.  

This is more physical than the first movie,” Pratt says.  

There were a lot of stunts; I’ve rolled out of the back of trucks, gone diving, ran down mountains and did underwater stunts.  We’ve also got huge fight sequences. They’ve taken the action-hero element that worked in the first movie and quadrupled it.

In Philippine cinemas June 6, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.  Follow us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/uipmoviesph/

Ian Veneracion Holds Early Father's Day Event by ASCOF Forte Menthol Syrup and Wish 107.5 on June 8 at Eton Centris Walk

In front of the cameras, Ian Veneracion has always been lauded for being a professional and effective actor. But outside the showbiz spotlight, he still gains the utmost respect and admiration of his fans by fully embracing his life as a family man - a wonderful dad to three kids and a loving husband to his wife.

Now, the multi-faceted Ian Veneracion, who’s also a painter and extreme sports advocate, gets to play still another interesting “role” - as a musical artist.

On June 8, Friday, Ian is set to perform a song inside the Wish 107.5 Bus which will be situated at Eton Centris Walk in Quezon City. Presented by the country’s no. 1 natural cough remedy ASCOF (Vitex negundo L. Lagundi Leaf) in collaboration with hit FM radio station Wish 107.5, the on-ground event will start at 4 p.m., with Veneracion’s guesting slated at 7 p.m.

A musician by heart, Ian has, in the past, written songs and played instruments like the piano and the guitar. But it was only recently when the versatile entertainer decided to take things up a notch with the release of his bluesy debut original single “We’re All Alone,” which Wish 107.5 describes as an “ode to solitude.”

Ian likewise mounted a successful first solo concert in Cebu dubbed as “Ian in 3 Acts,” the Manila leg of which was held last May 13, Mother’s Day, at Resorts World Manila.

Aside from an on-air musical delight from Ian, attendees of the early Father’s Day event will also be treated to games and other surprises like ASCOF’s “Who’s Your Cough Character” booth, where special prizes await lucky participants.

ASCOF, the innovative and pioneering herbal cough remedy in the Philippines, is made from 100 percent organically grown Lagundi leaves, making it a natural and effective remedy for mild to moderate cough and bronchial asthma. Its Menthol Syrup variant, either sugar-free or regular, has a “hagod-menthol” soothing effect for cough with sore and itchy throat.

When Ian was officially launched as its brand endorser, he proudly claimed that his cough remedy of choice had always been ASCOF Forte Menthol Syrup.

“PascualLab, the maker of ASCOF Forte Menthol Syrup, has constantly advocated for raising strong and healthy families, at the core of which are our beloved fathers. On Father’s Day, we would like to say ‘thank you’ to the very special men in our lives with a musical tribute.

For this, we can’t think of a more exceptional talent than our own Ian Veneracion, who, amid the many hats he wears, dons the hat of being a father best,” says ASCOF Forte Brand Manager Alan Levi Farinas.

Everyone is welcome to join us at the Centris Walk, on June 8, Friday, for a wonderful time of music and surprises with Ian Veneracion, ASCOF Forte Menthol Syrup and Wish 107.5.

Kojie•san Sunblock Sun Patrol: Letting You Have Fun in the Sun Without Skin Damage

The summer heat is on full effect! Time to get out there, get that golden tan in your most stunning summer threads, and sit back with a nice cold refreshing beverage in hand. Pretty sight, isn't it?

However, while the sun, sea, sand, and breeze collectively paint an amazing imagery of summer, one could also imagine how these elements can damage the skin when exposed without protection.

Have you ever stepped outdoors without any sun protection? You'd be surprised a lot of people are guilty of this. While we all dread the signs of aging, most of us don't make an effort to be kind to our skin.

Some might say they actually protect their skin by using sunblock. But probably the important question to ask are:

Are you doing enough and are you doing it right?

Have you ever gone out of the house without an SPF of at least 30? 

Do you apply sun protection only on your face and neglect the other exposed parts of your body?

Do you forget to reapply sunscreen every two hours? 

Do you apply less than a pea- sized amount of sunblock on your face?

If you answered YES to these, then you are committing serious violations against your skin.

Better be on the lookout then because The Kojie•san Sunblock Sun Patrol is watching to see if you commit more skin care violations and they could make a Citizen’s Arrest! Before they get to you though, you've got to make sure you know a couple of things.

A variety of factors can cause damage to your skin but the biggest culprit is sun exposure! The sun’s ultraviolet rays break down collagen and elastin, making the skin rough and uneven.These rays also affect the melanocytes, which have something to do with the skin’s pigmentation.

What’s worse is that when your skin ages prematurely due to unprotected sun exposure - you can get wrinkles, brown spots and even skin cancer!

What can you do to prevent this?

Stay out of the sun during the middle of the day when the sun’s rays are strongest, wear protective clothing such as hats and umbrellas and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen, which protect against both UVA and UVB rays, with a sun protection factor of 30 or higher. And yes, before the Kojie•san Sun Patrol makes another Citizen’s Arrest - don’t forget to reapply every two hours for maximum protection.

Kojie•san Sunblock is the only sun care brand in the Philippines with Sunactyl, which helps relieve and repair skin from sun damages caused by sun exposure. Sunactyl protects the skin against UVA and UVB damage through the glutathione system. It also fights UV-stress and heat-stress.

The products include Kojie•san Sunblock SPF 69 PA+++; Kojie•san Sunblock Face SPF 50 PA+++; Kojie•san Sunscreen SPF 55 PA+++ with Lightening; Kojie•san Sunblock Sport SPF 50 PA+++; Kojie•san Before Sunspray SPF 50; Kojie•san After Sunspray and Kojie•san Kids SPF 30 and SPF 50.

All Kojie•san Sunblock products have broad-spectrum protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays to prevent sunburn and premature skin aging.

So don’t be afraid to go out in the sun and enjoy the beach and indulge in other outdoor activities. But make sure to slather on your Kojie•san Sunblock because the Kojie•san Sun Patrol is ready to make a Citizen’s Arrest anytime you commit a skin crime.

Pulse Asia and SWS both conducted surveys in March, which showed, respectively, that 51% and 56% of Metro Manila homes own a DTT box, which gives a better TV viewing experience and more choices in terms of programs and channels.

The Pulse Asia and SWS surveys also found, respectively, that 16% and 17% of households nationwide have a DTT box.

The results from the polling firms show that more and more consumers are making the big switch from analog to DTT, as ABS-CBN reports it has sold a cumulative total of five million ABS-CBN TVplus boxes as of May 3.

ABS-CBN Tvplus, which was launched in 2015, enables viewers to enjoy clearer picture and audio quality, affordable pay-per-view services, and free exclusive channels without any monthly and installation fee.

With the robust sales of ABS-CBN TVplus driving the rise in DTT penetration, ABS-CBN is ahead of other broadcast companies in supporting the government’s mandate for the full shift from analog to DTT by 2023.

Since its launch three years ago, ABS-CBN TVplus has expanded its signal coverage in the country to reach residents in Metro Manila, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Pangasinan, Rizal, Laguna, Pampanga, Tarlac, Benguet, Cavite, Metro Cebu, Cagayan De Oro, Iloilo, Bacolod, and Davao.

While ABS-CBN TVplus’ latest milestone indicates that more Filipinos are eager to enjoy its life-changing benefits, it also means that viewers are enjoying ABS-CBN TVplus’ program offerings, translating into higher viewership for two of its exclusive channels.

CineMo, the first-ever all-day movie channel to air on ABS-CBN TVplus, is now the third most watched channel in Metro Manila with an average audience share of 7% for the month of April, according to data from Kantar Media covering urban and rural homes.

Like CineMo, ABS-CBN TVplus’ all-day children’s entertainment channel YeY! has also gained a solid following as the fourth most watched channel in Metro Manila with an average audience share of 5%.

Kantar Media is a leading television (TV) audience measurement provider with capabilities in gathering TV viewing data in both digital and analog platforms. It is a multinational market research group that specializes in audience measurement in more than 80 countries, has 26 TV networks, ad agencies, and pan-regional networks subscribing to its ratings services.

It was indeed a "bonggang" pilot airing for Inday Will Always Love You (IWALY) as the latest rom-com series on GMA Network's primetime block beat its rival program and dominated social media during its debut last Monday, May 21.

The GMA News and Public Affairs-produced series that highlights the unique beauty and rich culture of Cebu recorded a 42 percent overnight people share according to Nielsen Philippines TAM's National Urban Philippines data. IWALY's counterpart show, ABS-CBN's Since I Found You, only managed to get 34.8 percent.

Viewers and netizens alike cannot help but be captivated by the bubbly and positive attitude of Happylou Magtibay, played by award-winning Kapuso actress Barbie Forteza. 

Online, IWALY also made a buzz with the hashtag #IWALYBonggangPilot landing on the top spot of the trending topics in the Philippines which ran hours before the actual airing until morning the next day.

Praising Barbie’s character, a netizen with Twitter handle @archie_live said: “Ang lakas maka good vibes ni Happylou. Think positive lang!” Meanwhile, @reighnismsaid commended Barbie’s acting skills. “I thought this will be another trashy serye pero IT IS NOT! Barbie Forteza has grown a lot. Galing!”

At the same time, netizens found themselves craving for Cebu’s famous lechon which plays an integral part in the series since HappyLou works in a lechon store. 

“My mom will love this, she likes to eat lechon,” said @donnalee2010 while @korinhatesyou could not help but tweet: “i want to eat lechon din tuloy my goood (sic).”

They also commended the other actors who appeared on the pilot airing such as Ricky Davao, Manilyn Reynes, Nova Villa, Gladys Reyes, Kim Rodriguez, Buboy Villar, Liz Liz Simon, and Fliptop Artists Mzhayt and Price Tagg.
