Gerald Anderson avoided the question about him getting back with former flame Kim Chiu.
Gerald Anderson held a press conference for his 22nd birthday on March 7 before he proceeded to a gift-giving activity for young cancer patients in Quezon City. Asked for his birthday wish, the Fil-Am actor replied, “Sana tuloy-tuloy ang mga [magagandang] nangyayari sa akin ngayon. Pagpasok pa lang ng taon, sunud-sunod ang mga blessings na dumarating sa akin ngayon, so ayun sana tuloy-tuloy lang.”
Gerald also shared that the best material gift that he received is a massage chair from Kim Chiu. “Actually sabi nga ni Kim lahat nasa akin na, mahilig ako sa mga gadgets ‘yun ang naisipan niya [ibigay sa akin].” He continued that the massage chair was delivered to his home, but there was no card from Kim. Gerald added that he is already thinking of a gift for Kim, whose birthday is coming up this April. “Ako rin magbibigay rin ako sa kanila kasi malapit na ang birthday niya at lilipat na siya sa bagong bahay niya,” he said.
The action-drama prince also said that he does not feel jealous at all about Kim’s new admirer, basketball player Simon Atkins, who has been vocal about his admiration for the tsinita actress. “Hindi na po ako nagugulat… kung si Brad Pitt yayain si Kim kasi magandang babae si Kim,” he explained. “Marami pa ‘yan. Hindi lang si Simon.
“Kailangan lang tanggapin mag-move on o mag-focus sa trabaho,” he said referring to his past romantic relationship with Kim.
Gerald added that despite the painful controversies he and Kim went through last year, they are still able to remain close friends today. “Kumbaga marami nga kaming pinagdaanan na masama last year but it’s going to be a better road para sa aming lahat.” He went on to say that his friendship with Kim is like any other relationship that experienced trials but resolved differences in the end.
However, the actor refused to comment on the question about ever getting back with Kim. “Basta ang importante sa akin ang friendship namin ni Kim ay intact pa rin. Special si Kim and she will always be special.”
Some members of the press also asked Gerald if Bea Alonzo greeted him on his birthday, to which he said no. Gerald got romantically involved with Bea last year which resulted in a big controversy. He gave a safe answer when prodded about the current status of their relationship. “Okay kami. Kumbaga tapos [na ‘yung phase]. Moving on na kaming lahat,” and added that he and Bea parted ways amicably and that there are no more hard feelings between them. “Naging close din kami but maganda naman ang paghihiwalay naming lahat.”
On the other hand, Gerald was more comfortable when the subject turned to Sarah Geronimo, his leading lady in his upcoming movie Catch Me, I’m In Love. He confirmed that Sarah approached him and greeted him a happy birthday last Sunday (March 6) on ASAP Rocks.
Gerald continued that the Pop Princess did not give him a gift but Sarah’s friendship is already enough for him. “Okay na sa akin ‘yung friendship niya. Kumbaga sobra kaming okay: lahat ng staff, crew, kasama si Sarah. Sobra akong nagpapasalamat kasi ‘yung friendship niya ‘yun ang binigay niya.”
