HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - When Tia Carrere is home on Oahu and hungry, she fulfills her biggest craving which is hamburger steak and rice with gravy all over from Liliha Bakery in Kalihi.

We caught up with the 55-year-old Hollywood star from Kalihi as she gets ready to share her Filipino culture in the new comedy “Easter Sunday” which comes out in August.

Carrere talked about her humble beginnings catching TheBus from home to her school, Sacred Hearts Academy in Kaimuki and then being discovered in Waikiki while doing a modeling shoot for Crazy Shirts.

Looking back she says juggling motherhood with Hollywood has been tough. The two-time Grammy-award-winning singer is also going on a Hawaiian music tour with slack key musicians Daniel Ho and George Kahumoku Junior.

Their first stop is Napa, California in September.
