In her acceptance speech, Kathryn said she couldn’t have given justice to her character in the movie without boyfriend Daniel Padilla’s help. “So thank you, love,” she said. The film co-stars won Movie Love Team of the Year at the awards ceremony.
Kathryn went on to talk about her doubts as an actress and eventually overcoming them. “At a certain point in my career, I started questioning my capacity as an actress. I questioned why things weren’t working out the way I wanted to. Binigay mo ang lahat pero bakit ganyan? Ang dami kong whys last year before we shot The Hows Of Us.”
What she has learned from working on the film is that “life is not perfect and [things] don’t always go the way we want them to.” She said, “Itong award na ‘to is a validation that true dedication really pays off. Napatunayan din nito na it’s okay to not be okay sometimes. It’s okay to get tired in the process. It’s okay to fail even. Kasi lahat ‘yan parte ng journey natin. What’s important is that you stand up and try again until you’re able to make that dream a reality. I share this award sa lahat ng nangangarap.”
