Gerald Anderson says he'd rather leave the issue of former love team partner Kim Chiu's admirer alone.
Gerald 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
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-
Jessy. Ang hirap naman kung magsasabi ako ngayon na hindi ko naman siya
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
