Alessandra De Rossi admits she was distracted by Jericho Rosaless good looks


During the press conference of the teleserye Green Rose, stars Jericho Rosales and Alessandra De Rossi kept teasing each other, which made reporters think that there was something special going on between the two. When asked if she is attracted to Jericho, Alessandra quickly joked, "Excuse me, hindi niyo ba pansin na siya 'lsquo;yung tingin nang tingin sa akin? Siya 'lsquo;yung tawag nang tawag na, 'lsquo;Bibi!'rsquo; Ako may pagnanasa sa kanya? Of course not! Napipilitan lang ako. Sa ganda kong 'lsquo;to? Ha ha ha!"

In Green Rose, Alessandra works for the very first time with Jericho, and she revealed that in one scene that they did together, she got distracted when his face got too close to hers. "Alam ko lang na magaling siyang artista, na he'rsquo;s cute. Pero 'lsquo;yung una naming eksena together, nakahiga ako sa kama habang sinasakal niya ako. Ang dialogue ko, 'lsquo;Huwag! Huwag!'rsquo; Pero napahinto ako kasi, 'lsquo;Ang gwapo pala nito!'rsquo; Na-distract ako. After nun inamin ko sa kanya na na-distract nga ako kasi ang gwapo niya. Mula noon nilalandi na niya ako, ni hindi ko nga siya pinapansin."

Alessandra and Jericho both maintained that they only became good friends after months of taping Green Rose. Jericho has had the reputation of getting attracted to actresses he works with, so he was asked if there'rsquo;s a slight chance that he might fall in love with Alessandra. Jericho answered, "Love ko 'lsquo;yan si Alex. Mahal siya ng lahat sa set. Alex is 'lsquo;love.'rsquo; Who wouldn'rsquo;t fall in love with someone who makes you laugh everyday? Hindi mahirap ma in-love sa katulad ni Alex kasi rock and roll ang puso mo kapag siya ang kasama mo."

Alessandra is also very close to another Green Rose actor, Jake Cuenca, who she has known for almost ten years now, even from when they were still on another network. Alessandra shared that when she moved to ABS-CBN in 2008, Jake was the first person she got in touch with. "Nung lumipat ako dito sa ABS-CBN si Jake ang una kong hinanap. Alam ko kasi na siya 'lsquo;yung kaibigan ko talaga. Alam kong kaya niya akong protektahan, bantayan dito sa ABS-CBN. Masaya ako na 'lsquo;yung una kong project dito, 'lsquo;yung Tayong Dalawa e kasama ko si Jake. It felt like home agad kasi kasama mo 'lsquo;yung taong alam mong nandiyan lagi para sa 'lsquo;yo."

After seeing some of the episodes of Green Rose, Alessandra shared that she feels very proud about Jake'rsquo;s performance in the teleserye. "Nakita ko 'lsquo;yung pag-mature ni Jake bilang aktor dahil dito sa Green Rose. Kung iko-compare mo sa mga dati niyang nagawa, talagang makikita mong gumaling si Jake. Kapag napanood niyo, talagang sobrang bagay sa kanya 'lsquo;yung role."
