One of the reasons why Kim Chiu’s feeling more inspired nowadays is because she went skydiving with Maja Salvador and Angelica Panganiban during their recent trip to the US. Aside from conquering her fear of heights, she said that such exhilarating experience helped her release her heartaches and hang-ups in life as well. “Nag-skydiving kami sa Sta. Barbara. Wala, masaya lang ako kasi nagawa ko siya. Ang sarap ng feeling. Naisigaw ko na ang dapat isigaw sa 80,000 feet na yun! Sabi nga ni Mr. M (Johnny Manahan, Star Magic Head), ‘Mabuti hindi ka nagpaalam sa akin, kundi hindi kita papayagan.’ Kasi may show pa kami. Siyempre hindi mo naman alam kung ano pwede mangyari ‘di ba,” she related during her recent birthday press con.
The trio also got the chance to meet Hollywood star Ben Stiller and acted like fans by having their pictures taken with him. “Nakita ko si Ben Stiller dun. Nagpa-picture ako with him. Gwapo siya! Nagpaka-fan kami nila Maja and Angelica. Hindi naman namin sinabi na artista kami dito sa Pilipinas. Nagpakilala kami as tourists. Okay naman siya. Binaba naman niya window niya tapos yun, picture picture lang.”
Incidentally, they were in Los Angeles at that time for Kim’s magazine pictorial with 90210 star Matt Lanter, who plays the role of the bad boy Liam Court in the said American series. When asked if the dashing actor got attracted to her during their shoot, Kim was quick to say that Matt already had a girlfriend. “Hindi siya nagka-crush sa akin. Nandun girlfriend niya, nakabantay (laughs). Masaya naman, mabait siya, parang close na kami kahit nun lang kami nagkatrabaho. Ang concept nung pictorial Filipina actress meets Hollywood star Hollywood kaya may picture kami sa Hollywood sign,” she added.
At the end of the interview, Kim also clarified that there’s no reason for people to think that Maja and Angelica are her new best friends just she spent her U.S. vacation with them rather than the other Chiurigogobaschu girls. “Wala namang best friends. Sila lang yung nandun na kasama ko habang nasa US at nagkataon namang magkakasundo kami. Masaya sila kasama, ang kengkoy nila. Kapag namamasyal kami tawa lang kami ng tawa. Tapos lagi kaming nakabonggang outfit kaya enjoy yung girl bonding namin.”
