Sam Milby and Yassi Pressman arrived at the red carpet premiere of their movie “Ang Pambansang Third Wheel” with an actual third wheel!
Watch the video below:
This is the first team-up of Yassi and Sam and the two discovered many things about each other while filming the movie. One of which is that they have opposite personalities, Sam being introvert and Yassi being extrovert. But during the press conference for the film, Sam made a revelation that he’s attracted to Yassi.
“First off on personal level, in terms of Yassi, She’s my type. She’s beautiful, she’s goofy,” he said.
This could be the reason why the two effortlessly developed a chemistry on the big screen. And the two admitted that they’ve been “third wheels” in real life.
Milby defined “third wheel” as “ikaw ‘yung kasama ng couple. Sometimes ikaw ang makakatulong sa relationship ng friends niyo, ikaw yung makapagbibigay ng magagandang payo bilang ikaw nasa outside. But yeah youre the one na walang relationship, ikaw yung laging kasama nung may kasama o may relasyon na.”
Pressman emphasized the plight of being a third wheel.
“Siguro po ang pagiging negative ay nanggagaling sa sariling third wheel. Kasi po sa mga couples na may kasamang friend, gusto nila kasama yung kabarkada nila e. Pero para naman po sa third wheel feeling nila sila yung OP. So ito pong kwento namin ay parang isang diary. Sa buhay po ni Trina, masasamahan niyo siya sa mga ups and downs, sa mga pagsabit niya sa mga relationships na sunudsunuran lang siya sa mga kaibigan niya. Kahit saan sila magpunta, siya yung bitter kasi lahat nagyayakapan, nagki-kiss sila tapos wala siyang kasama, walang nakikinig sa kanya so marami pong nakakatawang parts na ganun and aside from that marami pong mga surprises na madadala si Trina hindi lang bilang third wheel kundi bilang tao din,” she said.
