Matteo Guidicelli explains why Maja Salvador has been spotted riding in his car


033111-matteo_main.jpgMatteo Guidicelli doesn’t mind laughing at the poster of the movie Catch Me…I’m in Love where he is seen on the background behind lead stars Gerald Anderson and Sarah Geronimo. For Matteo, the best thing about his supporting role in the movie was that he was given the privilege to work with Gerald and Sarah. “Natutuwa lang ako na ang una kong movie is with Gerald and Sarah. I look up to Sarah very much. Si Gerald kaibigan ko naman ‘yan. Naka work ko sila ni Kim (Chiu) sa Gokada Go.”
 
The race car driver-turned-actor meanwhile is taking on the lead role in his next movie. Matteo is soon to finish the film Basted which pairs him with Maja Salvador. “Malapit na siyang matapos. Mga dalawang shooting days na lang. Kasama rin namin sina Ricky Davao, Rosanna Roces, Xian Lim, and it’s directed by Enrico Santos.”
 
Rumors had long been going around that Matteo and Maja are dating, but Matteo again insisted that Maja is just a friend. “Hindi kami dating. Hindi ko rin siya nililigawan. Sobra lang kaming close. Akala lang ng marami nanliligaw ako sa kanya. Kasi siya ‘yung date ko sa Star Magic Ball. Nagkasama rin kami sa Inday Bote. Ngayon super close kami sa shooting ng Basted.
 
Matteo also clarified the story that Maja was spotted on several occasions riding in his car and they seem to be going places together. “Hindi lang naman si Maja. May iba ring sumasakay sa kotse ko. Si Kim, ‘yung ibang barkada namin, si Jason (Abalos). Wala lang ‘yun,” he explained.
 
Though he admitted that he likes Maja very much, Matteo said that he has no plans of pursuing the actress because for now his priority is his showbiz career. “Type ko siya pero ngayon concentrate muna ako sa trabaho. I work with her and I consider her as an inspiration kasi mas matagal na siya sa industriya kesa sa akin. I always treat the people I work with as an inspiration. Ayoko muna ng distraction.”
 
Matteo was also once linked to Sarah, and he admitted that there was a time they used to exchange messages on Blackberry, until the singer/actress gave up her BB. When asked if he knows anything about Sarah’s still much talked about past relationship with Rayver Cruz, Matteo said that he never probed Sarah about it. “Nasa paligid lang ako, ha ha ha! Kaibigan ko rin kasi si Rayver. Nagkakasama kami working out sa gym. Wala namang naikukwento sa akin si Rayver about sa kanila ni Sarah. Alam ko naman si Sarah na she’s going through a hard time. Relax lang ako. Kami sa set we have fun, we try to make her laugh. Positive vibes lang sa set.”
