Coco Martin says that it's too early for him to develop feelings for Angeline Quinto


112311-coco-main.jpgIn an interview with Push.com.ph, Coco Martin happily shared that Star Power champ Angeline Quinto gave him a Magic Sing videoke mike for his 30th birthday. “Nagulat nga ako bakit Magic Sing. Siguro alam niya na hindi ako masyadong marunong kumanta. Tapos ilang beses na rin kami nagkakasama sa concert tours abroad, kaya yun ang ibinigay niya sa akin. Kung may ibang regalo akong natanggap sa kapwa ko artista? Wala eh, si Angeline lang nagbigay.

The two have been closely working together on their movie You Light Up My Life. And the fact that Coco purchased two necklaces for Angeline has kept the local press abuzz whether or not they’re dating. “Masama bang maging mapagbigay? Ibinigay ko yun sa kanya for good luck. Actually, pareho namang cross [yung pendant ng necklace]. Mahilig kasi siya sa cross at devoted siya sa church. Siyempre yung ibibigay mo sa tao yung alam mong makakapagpaligaya sa kanya. Hindi na importante kung gold man yun o ano, basta importante naalala mo yung tao.”

Nevertheless, Coco is flattered knowing that Angeline is very vocal about her admiration of him. In fact, he tries his best to make her feel comfortable on the set of their movie. “Siyempre, bilang lalaki, masarap din yung may humahanga sa ‘yo. Pero iba ako, wala naman [kaso dun]. Sabi ko nga, ‘Bakit lagi kang tahimik at nag-iisip?’ Sabi sa akin, ‘Ikaw kasi kaeksena ko.’ Sabi ko, ‘E, ano naman?’ Napre-pressure daw siya. Sabi ko kaya nga nandito kami para alalayan siya.

Since he usually plays offbeat roles on screen, Coco shared that he truly enjoys doing a romantic-comedy this time around. “Sobrang may nilu-look forward ako every time na nagsu-shooting ako. Napakasarap pala na gumawa ng love story sa pelikula. Kasi, nakaka-in love e. Kasi, ngayon ko lang naranasan yung magpa-kilig. Dati kasi, ang mga pelikula na ginagawa ko, masyadong malalim at seryoso. So sobrang saya ko."

But he was quick to say that it doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s also falling for his leading lady. “Wala, gumagawa lang kami ng pelikula. In love po ako sa paggawa ng pelikula. Ayoko magsalita ng masyadong advance. Unang-una, ayoko naman sabihin na promo lang ng pelikula. At masyado pang maaga, kinikilala pa namin ang isa’t isa. Wala kaming time [para mag-date] at wala naman kami sa ganong point.”

Asked if he has ever visited Angeline at home, Coco simply replied, “Hindi pa ako nakakabisita sa kanya. Si Angeline kasi tahimik at sobrang focused sa trabaho. Nakikita ko yung sarili ko sa kanya nung nagsisimula ako. Hinahayaan ko siya kasi first acting stint niya. Wala naman ako magagawa kundi ang mag-guide. Ang ganda ng progress niya. Honestly, nung nagwo-workshop kami, totally wala siyang alam sa acting. Pero ngayon, palalim ng palalim ang nabibigay niya sa eksena. Ang galing sobra, hindi ako makapaniwala.”
