Matteo Guidicelli signed a two-picture contract with Star Cinema last Friday, April 16. "I signed for two pictures with Star Cinema and I want to thank Kuya Joji Dingcong and Ms. Mariole Alberto and Mr. Johnny Manahan and Star Magic, of course, for making this happen. I feel so blessed and it is a dream come true. Thank you very much." The first movie Matteo will be working on is with Sarah Geronimo and Sam Milby. "Sabi po sa akin yung first movie ko is with Sam Milby, Sarah Geronimo, and me, so I am super excited for that, I am super excited to work with them."
With his teleserye, Agua Bendita, continuing to rule primetime ratings, Matteo’s career is certainly on the upswing. "It is just so amazing. I am speechless; I don't know what to say anymore. This is a dream come true talaga to be working with Sarah, I admire her talent so much and I admire the person that she is."
There have been rumors that Matteo was courting Sarah, but he readily denied it. But what he does not deny is the fact that he is such an admirer of the Pop Star Princess, even watching two of her concerts. "Hindi po [ako nanligaw sa kanya], she's just a very, very talented person and I admire her so much’ I watched two of her concerts. I went to Batangas one time and I went to Cebu to watch her. Billy Crawford introduced us in Cebu and I met her parents there. Sobrang bait ni Sarah. Parang ordinaryong tao lang. She has a beautiful family. Her dad and mom are nice. She's very blessed. She's very sweet, very down-to-earth and when you watch her perform it makes you just say, 'Wow'."
He admitted that at first he was scared to face Sarah's mother, Mommy Divine, but he said meeting went well. "Sabi po nila, she's (Mommy Divine) so scary so I was so scared of her. The first time I met her I said to Billy, 'Billy, okay lang ba?' Then Billy said, 'Mabait naman si Tita,' Then yun nga she was very nice naman to us.”
