After fangirling over each other on social media, Janine Gutierrez and Charlie Dizon have finally met in person!
On Instagram, Charlie shared a photo with her “idol” Janine. The two were hanging out backstage during last Sunday’s episode of ASAP Natin ‘To.
“Super nice to finally meet you @janinegutierrez,” the young actress wrote.
After the buzz of the 24-year-old’s award-winning performance for Antoinette Jadaone’s 2020 film Fan Girl, Janine penned a tweet, expressing her admiration for Charlie.
“I want to be Charlie Dizon when I grow up,” Janine tweeted.
Charlie shared the tweet and cheered on her “idol.” She wrote: “Mas idol po kita. Ms. Best Actress.”
After seeing their friendly exchange, film producer Bianca Balbuena who worked on both Babae at Baril and Fan Girl expressed her gratitude for getting to work with them.
Janine replied and asked if they could work on a project together.
The two actresses grabbed prestigious awards last year. Charlie won her first best actress recognition with her portrayal in the Metro Manila Film Festival entry, Fan Girl. While Janine won back-to-back best actress awards from Gawad Urian and FAMAS for her role in Babae At Baril.
