Julia Montes says she respects her lola's wish to not get into a relationship before she turns 18.
As Enchong Dee becomes more vocal about his plans to court her when she turns 18, Growing Up
star Julia Montes said she and the Maria la Del Barrio
actor are really nothing more than friends at the moment. “Ano, wala naman. Kasi
from the start alam niya na rin na bata pa ako
and nirerespeto naman niya yun
so close friends lang kami
. Close kami ngayon. Hindi pa ako makapag-
comment ngayon pero
let’s see in the future. Siguro
special friend siya
in a way na matagal na rin kasi yung pinagsamahan namin
and marami kaming
in common ugali-
wise,” she shared during the Coca-Cola Caravan and Araneta Center Giant Tree Lighting event held last November 12.
The 16-year-old actress, who is also gearing up for an upcoming teleserye
which partners her onscreen with Coco Martin, said she is slowly getting used to being asked more often about her personal life. “Actually nasasanay na pero
in a way like one time parang na-
off lang ako kasi tinanong ako. Medyo nawawala ako minsan pero
okay lang, wala naman kasing mali dun,” she shared with Push.com.ph
After being raised mostly by her lola, Julia said she will follow her grandmother’s request that she not get into any relationship before she turns 18. “Siguro kasi yung respeto ko rin kasi sa lola ko. Yun yung gusto niya.
So yun naman yung natuwa ako kay
Enchong kasi yun din yung sinasabi niya. Kaya tingnan na lang natin kasi marami rin namang taong nagsasabi na maghihintay pero siyempre hindi naman natutuloy
,” she said.
The Fil-German beauty admitted she is also curious to see if Enchong would be true to his word that he is willing to wait for her to be of age. “I’m flattered in a way kasi kilala ko nga siya di ba
and close ko nga siya sa Shout Out!
and siguro bihira na rin naman sa
guy yung nag-hihintay
so let’s see rin kung makakapaghintay talaga siya
so ayun. Tingnan na lang natin. Hindi ko rin sigurado
,” she admitted.
Now that the two have been named as celebrity ambassadors of Coca-Cola, Julia looks forward to doing more projects with Enchong. “Siyempre masaya ako kasi ang huli naming pagkakatrabaho
together is sa Shout Out! pa
and then hindi na nasundan
so dito masaya kami kasi magkasama kami ngayon
,” she said
Although there is nothing more than friendship between them at the moment, Julia says she will be open about it if anything more does develop between them. “Siguro
in time pa. Tulad rin naman ng sinasabi niya rin, kung meron naman talagang
something, hindi naman kami magiging Ganon a itago pa
,” she said.
