Sarah Geronimo says she and Gerald Anderson have a purely professional relationship.
After the success of their first movie Catch Me, I’m in Love
, Sarah Geronimo admitted that there is less pressure for her second onscreen team-up with heartthrob Gerald Anderson. “Nung bagong simula yung aming pelikula siyempre may
doubts kami kung mag-wo-
work ba yung kami, kung may
chemistry ba kami, ganun
. Thank God na lahat ng
appreciate nila yung
in making a good movie for all of them,” she shared.
But even while shooting Catch Me, I’m in Love
, Sarah admitted it was not hard to adjust to her leading man. “Yan yung nakakatuwa sa amin ni
Gerald, naging kumportable kami agad sa isa’t isa na nabibiro ko siya, hindi siya napipikon
so yun po siguro yun
,” she said.
The 23-year-old Popstar Princess said she is content with just a purely working relationship with the Fil-Am hunk. “Tama lang. Tamang
friendship, kung ano yung nakikita nila sa
screen, yun naman yung bunga nung magandang pagtratrabaho namin, yung
chemistry,” she added.
Although they definitely make sparks as a couple onscreen, Sarah clarified that she and Gerald only share a professional relationship. “Ang
goal namin hindi maghanap ng
girlfriend or boyfriend. Ang
goal namin is mag-
entertain ng tao. Huwag sana tayo mag-
rely sa mga
scenes kasi puwede naman na kahit na walang
love scenes or kissing scenes. Wala namang
pressure na ganun sa amin.
Not at all. Kasi
okay kami eh. Hindi naman kailangan ma-
pressure ‘di ba?
” she said.
During her short stay abroad where she took dancing lessons to further hone her skills, Sarah admitted she did miss seeing Gerald. “Oo naman. Napaka-
gentleman naman ni
Gerald at saka napaka-
professional as an actor. At kahit wala kaming
constant communication like through texting, nandudun pa rin yung
chemistry at yung
friendship namin. Hindi naman kailangan na lumalim pa doon para mas maging
as partners onscreen. Okay naman kami. Hindi naman kailangan na
constant communication para mapangalagaan yung kung ano mang meron kami, yung
tandem, so okay naman
,” she shared. Sarah also adds that she has thankfully not received any backlash from fans of the actor and former love team partner Kim Chiu.
Sarah said she is thankful at how the public has accepted her tandem with Gerald even though their relationship has remained platonic offscreen. “Nagpapasalamat kami sa lahat ng tumanggap ng
tandem namin ni
Gerald. Siyempre sa bawat proyekto na ginagawa namin, ang
goal talaga namin
is mapasaya sila
entertain sila ng husto. At dito rin sa gagawin namin susunod na pelikula, layunin talaga namin ang mabigyan ang mga tao ng mas maganda pang pelikula kesa dun sa
previous one,” she shared.
In their upcoming movie, Sarah plays the role of a lively DJ who meets the character played by Gerald, a guy whom she has a love-hate relationship with. “Simple lang yung
story conference na kami para sa
movie. Sobra kaming
Gerald kasi nagustuhan namin yung storya at yung magiging
theme song. Sa bawat pelikula naman kasi na ginagawa namin,
we make sure na parang
relatable talaga yung mga
characters, yung pinagdadaanan ng mga
characters. So para mas maging
effective siya at para makasabay yung mga
viewers,” she said.
