Friendship Of JV Ejercito, Sam Pinto Strengthened By Pick-up Line

Senatorial bet JV Ejercito Estrada chose sexy actress Sam Pinto to endorse his candidacy not just because she's popular but because they are friends - and wait, there's more.

Apparently, they became good friends versus being mere acquaintances more than a year ago when JV responded to a post by Sam.

"Sa Twitter nagpa-contest siya kasi na-bo-bore daw siya. Tapos nag-isip ako - nagpa-plano kasi ako maging Boy Pick-Up. So binigyan ko siya ng pick-up line. Dun nagsimula 'yun," JV told Bulletin Entertainment and select members of media in a recent interview held at the Mount Malarayat Golf & Country Club and Residential Estates.

JV said that he makes it a point to get endorsers who really know him and not one who's in it for financial gain.

"Mas mabuti na 'yung palagay ka sa isang kasama mo sa ads, na kilala mo. Kesa naman 'yung kukuha ka ng binayaran mo. Mas kumportable kang makasama 'yung kahit paano'y kilala ka't kilala mo."

The senatoriable said that Sam is just waiting for her schedule to clear up so she could join him in making the rounds nationwide.

"Siyempre, hot din siya ngayon so sabihin lang daw ahead at samahan daw niya kami," he said.

JV has ties with show business. His parents, former President Joseph Estrada and Mayor Guia Gomez, had starred in several movies. This, perhaps, is the reason the congressman has plans to help out the industry by the by.

"Kung wala ang soap opera, halos wala na tayong movie industry to speak of. Unang-una na siguro ang piracy eh, 'no? Mukhang doon namamatay ang industry. Dapat po talagang maagapan 'yun.

"Tapos sa amusement tax. Kapag local movies, walang laban sa eh. 'Yung mga producers, mas mura mag-import ka ng mga Korean or mga South American nobela kaysa mag-produce ka, 'di ba? So mas madali para sa kanila (na gawin na lang 'yon)," he said.

"Nakakalungkot, eh. Kung hindi Koreano, blonde 'yung buhok..."

Does he watch teleseryes?

"Wala kaming panahon. Siguro dati. 'Darna?"'
