Sarah Geronimo says she is not looking for a boyfriend in showbiz


082011-sarah-main.jpgAfter 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 supporters na-appreciate nila yung effort namin 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 intimate na 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 effective kami 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 and ma-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. Nag-story conference na kami para sa movie. Sobra kaming excited ni 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.
