Angel Locsin believes that Phil Younghusband is not using her for publicity


030811-angel1_main.jpgNow that she and Azkals striker Phil Younghusband have admitted they went out together with friends, Angel Locsin said that she was able to get a very good first impression of the controversial football athlete. “We’re friends. Lumabas kami. Nasa getting-to-know-you stage pa rin naman. He’s very nice. He’s a gentleman,” she said.

During the March 6 launch of Marck Nicdao’s Vantage book and exhibit at Greenbelt 5 in Makati City, Angel admitted that it’s been a challenge to find the opportunity to spend time with Phil again. “Parang ang hirap eh. Ang hirap na very public yung nangyari ngayon so ang hirap rin mag-comment. Nung lumabas kami, napag-uusapan namin yung family ko. Hindi ko pa siya nai-introduce sa family, wala pa. Kasi ang labas namin with friends, yung punta namin sa firing range, ganun lang. hindi pa talaga yung alis-alis talaga,” she added.

The sexy actress also chose to shrug off rumors that claim that Phil has some vested interests in showing his romantic intentions for her. “Kasi parang ayoko na sumagot ng mga issues na baka ginagamit lang ako kasi hindi ko alam kung paano sagutin yun. Tsaka sabi naman niya hindi. And ako nasa industriya ako na palaging may mga ginagawang kuwento at nasasaktan ako ‘pag may mga ganyang kuwento tungkol sa akin na masakit nga naman. So bibigyan ko siya ng tiwala para dito, kung ano yung sinabi niya, papaniwalaan ko kasi siya yung sangkot talaga dito, hindi yung mga gawagawa na kuwento ng ibang tao lang,” she stresses.

With regards to the recent controversy involving Angelica Panganiban and an Azkals fan on Twitter, Angel said she is not taking anybody’s side, but she can empathize with fellow celebrity’s concerns for making a comment like that. “Ano kasi, I understand Angelica because I know that she’s a big fan of football talaga and siguro wala rin ako sa position para mag-comment pero I understand her. Mabait naman si Angelica eh. Siguro nami-misinterpret lang ng mga tao,” she said.

The 25-year-old actress said that she knows that this year is crucial for Philippine football because at the current rate they are going, the Azkals stand a chance to perform well at the World Cup Qualifiers in June. “Sana wala na itong ganituhan kasi kung gusto talaga nating suportahan ito na first time lang  may representative ang Philippines sa World Cup if ever. So sana wala na rin mga stressful na issues na makaka-distract sa goal nila. Wala lang, parang kasi, wala ako sa position to comment. I respect Angelica because I understand, she’s a big fan of football,” she said.
