Gerald Anderson on a basketball match with Simon Atkinson: 'Joke lang 'yon'


062311-gerald_main.jpgGerald Anderson wants to stay out of the issue of linking his former leading lady Kim Chiu and her admirer Simon Atkins, the team captain of the De La Salle basketball team. “I’m sure sobrang bait si Simon pero kung ano pong meron do’n, labas na po ako diyan. Kumbaga naki-ano lang ako sa mga tanong-tanong but labas na po ako dyan. Out na ako sa sitwasyon na ‘yan,” he said.

Gerald also clarified his previous statement in an episode of Entertainment Live that he is open to have a friendly basketball match with Simon. “Joke-joke lang ‘yon. Actually napapanood ko nga ang games kasi mahilig talaga akong manuod ng basketball sa college games, professional games. Joke lang po talaga ‘yon. Tinanong kasi ako ni Nikki (Gil) kung maga-agree daw ako, maga-agree din daw siya.

The actor, who is a basketball enthusiast, also downplayed Simon’s statement that he believes that Gerald is a good basketball player. “I’m sure siya [ang mas magaling],” replied Gerald. “If you’re the captain, you have to be good.”

When it comes to work, Gerald is set to work on his new teleserye Budoy which will team him up with Jessy Mendiola. He continued that he is excited to work with the young actress whom he thinks is a promising star.  He let out a laugh when asked about the possibility of getting linked to Jessy. “Agad-agad?” he replied. “Hindi ko naman sobrang ka-close si Jessy. Ang hirap naman kung magsasabi ako ngayon na hindi ko naman siya close na close. Tingnan natin.”

As for the possibility of falling for Jessy, Gerald explained, “Kung mangyayari, mangyayari siya. Hindi ko naman sinasabi ready ako ngayon, so maghahanap ako ngayon. Hindi naman ako ganon. Hindi ko naman pipigilan pero hindi naman ako naghahanap.”
