Rodriguez and Jacinto spoke to screen frenzy to discuss their all-time favorite rom-com couples, what to do after a breakup, and more.
Screen Rant: This was a beautiful movie, a joy to watch. Another romcom to add to my collection. I want to know who is your all-time favorite rom-com couple?
Manny Jacinto: I mean off the top of my head, Harry and Sally. Sage and Harry.
Gina Rodriguez: George Clooney and Amal Clooney. They give me a few goals.
Going real life. Love that.
Gina Rodriguez: But I kinda like me, you know, Monster Beauty was my favorite rom-com. It was like J.Lo and Jane Fonda were my favorite couple. The two together. Wow.
I love that you just said that. I think that movie is so underrated. It’s fantastic.
Gina Rodriguez: So good, right? I’m going to check that out again today.
Yes, I think I am, actually. I’m going to light it next.
Now I want the Manny and Gina guide to breakups. Your best friend gets dumped. They try to move on. What is your advice? What are steps one through three of what you tell them to do?
Manny Jacinto: First you would throw your phone away. Don’t look at your phone. Get that out of there. That’s the first for me.
Gina Rodriguez: Then you hang out with this person as much as they allow you. You’re just taking their time. You are taking up your friend’s time. You go hang out. Maybe go to the park, go for a walk, get massages, do what is financially able for you. But to spend some time with that friend so that their loneliness doesn’t tempt them to pick up that phone you asked to throw away.
Manny Jacinto: Step three. When you’re ready, spend that time alone. Go in a little bit. Work on yourself. Look at what growth needs to be done and keep your fingers crossed that things will eventually get better. That’s the step-by-step guide from Gina Rodriguez and Manny Jacinto there.
A lot. Top Gun: Maverick† Comes eventually, I’m told. So I need you to give us one more plague to tie us up until… Top Gun: Maverick arrives.
Manny Jacinto: Oh man, it’s been so long since we shot that movie. But when it comes out, it’ll be worth it, guys! It will be worth the wait. 30+ years. So if you can wait that long, you can wait another three months.
