Gerald Anderson admires Sarah Geronimo's humility


030411-gerald_main.jpgThough they frequently run into each other backstage at ASAP every Sunday, Gerald Anderson and Sarah Geronimo rarely had the chance to sit down together for a friendly chat. But thanks to the movie Catch Me… I’m in Love, the two finally had the time to get to know each other. Gerald described what he discovered he liked the most about Sarah over the course of shooting the film. “Nagkikita kami sa ASAP. Lahat ng concerts niya sold out. Alam naman natin lahat na superstar siya. Pero kapag magkasama kami sa set hindi mo mararamdaman ‘yun dahil sobra siyang down to earth. That’s good kasi focused siya sa trabaho.”

He added that despite the busy pace on the set of the film, everyone still manage to have a good time. “So far we’re enjoying sa shoot. Napakagaan ng feeling sa set. Always stress free. There’s lots of fun.”

Catch Me…I’m in Love, which will premiere on March 23, marks the first time pairing of the Action Drama Prince and the Pop Star Princess. After years of working exclusively with ka-love team Kim Chiu, Gerald said he finds it refreshing to have a new leading lady. “Panibagong challenge ito kasi first time namin na magkaka-work. Galing ako kay Kim, si Sarah naman kay John Lloyd (Cruz). Bago ito para sa amin ni Sarah this 2011.”

At first there were many solid Kim-Gerald fans who expressed disapproval over the actor’s partnership with Sarah. Now however that the teaser for Catch Me… I’m in Love is being shown on TV, many have gotten excited over the new pair. Gerald commented, “That’s a good sign. Sa lahat ng pagod namin sa shooting, we assure [you] na matutuwa ang mga tao sa ibibigay namin sa kanila. We’re very excited kasi this is the first time na magkaka-work kami ni Sarah, at sa movie pa.

Even though they are with different partners for now, Gerald and Kim continue to be good friends. Gerald denied the rumor that during the recent ASAP Rocks show in Davao he and Kim snubbed each other. “Wala pong ganyan. Wala lang po kaming prod number na magkasama kami. Hindi po totoo ‘yan.

So will Gerald be Sarah’s first onscreen kiss? The actor laughed, “Ha ha ha! Hindi pa namin tapos ‘yung pelikula so hindi pa namin alam. Ha ha ha!
