Jason Francisco talks about being a patient boyfriend to Melai Cantiveros


071311-melason_main.jpgAlthough their love story has been an open book since their stint on Pinoy Big Brother, Jason Francisco admitted that he often tells Melai Cantiveros not to share too much information about her private life. “Hay nako, ilang beses ko na pinagsasabihan ‘yan. Sa totoo lang naman, maganda yung maging honest ka. Pero may mga bagay na kailangan itago mo na lang sa sarili mo. Mamaya eh, kulang na lang sabihin mo pati kulay ng panty mo sa sobrang lahat sinasabi mo sa publiko. Pero kasi ‘yan si Melai hindi talaga nabubuhay sa kasinungalingan. Kung anong nakikita niyo, ganyan talaga siya,” Jason told Push.com.ph during the recent press con of The Adventures of Pureza: Queen of The Riles.

Jason did not deny the fact that he and Melai would often engage in quarrels on and off cam. But it doesn’t take long before they’d get back to their usual kulitan moments. “Napakasimple lang ng pinag-aawayan namin. Madalas kasi nag-aasaran lang kami. Kapag alam mo na mainit ulo ng isa at medyo pagod, si Melai mangungulit pa rin kaya nagagalit ako. Minsan naman ako lang talaga ang napagdidiskitahan niya. Hindi ko alam kung bakit. Iniisip ko na lang na siguro ganon talaga kapag may regla, madaling mairita.”

On a different note, Jason feels very blessed to be given a launching movie with Melai early on their showbiz career. He also claimed that he had fun working with director Soxie Topacio who allowed them to experiment with their roles in the movie. “Gaganap po ako bilang si Ruben Padilla, ang kababata ni Pureza na may secret crush sa kanya hanggang sa lumaki na kami. Masaya kasi kung anong itinuturo sa amin ni direk, sinusunod namin. Minsan kung may gusto kaming idagdag, itatanong lang namin sa kanya kung pwede namin gawin sa eksena. Tapos kung okay sa kanya, sasabihin naman niya sa amin.”

But even now that he’s more comfortable with his celebrity status, Jason remains grounded when it comes to what he has achieved in showbiz so far. “Kung meron man nabago sa amin, siguro yung itsura at pananamit. Dati simple lang, ngayon medyo pormal na. Kasi sinasabihan po kami ni direk Lauren (Dyogi) na siyempre iniidolo kayo ng mga kabataan kaya kailangan presentable kayo palagi para maayos yung tingin nila sa’yo. Tapos kung dati minsan ka lang makapagpadala ng pera sa pamilya mo, ngayon labis-labis na ang naibibigay mo sa kanila. Kaya sobrang masaya naman kami dahil umayos ang buhay namin mula noong pumasok kami sa showbiz,” he added.
