(SPOT.ph) To say Pinoys love a good romance film would be an understatement—we practically obsess over these stories. Netflix recently ran an online survey on their Philippine audience to find out the top movie stars who make Pinoys kilig, and they're no other than Noah Centineo in The Perfect Date and Vanessa Hudgens in The Princess Switch.
For the female celebrities, Hudgens was followed by The Kissing Booth's Joey King, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’s Lana Condor, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s Kiernan Shipka, and finally, You’s Shay Mitchell.
Fellow heartthrobs who followed Centineo were Riverdale’s Cole Sprouse, Romance Is a Bonus Book’s Lee Jong Suk, The Kissing Booth’s Jacob Elordi, and Riverdale and The Last Summer’s KJ Apa.
The Princess Switch gave us something to squeal over last Christmas with its holiday twist to the classic Prince and the Pauper story, where Hudgens plays both Stacy DeNovo and Lady Margaret Delacourt. Their plan to switch identities for a while gave them way more than they bargained for, especially where Stacy's friend Kevin Richards (Nick Sagar) and Margaret's fiancée Prince Edward (Sam Palladio) are concerned.
In The Perfect Date, Centineo plays Brooks Rattigan, a small town guy with big dreams. Brooks comes up with a scheme to sell himself as a customizable date in order to afford tuition at an Ivy League school, but loses a lot of other things on his way to get what he thinks he wants. We got to see Centineo in some pretty ridiculous outfits for the movie, but he somehow always managed to stay good-looking.
For movies, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, which stars Lana Condor and Noah Centineo came out on top of the list of rom-coms Pinoys would want to find themselves in. After all, this was the movie that started the Centineo craze. It was followed by The Kissing Booth, The Perfect Date, Isn't It Romantic, and Set It Up.
