Matteo Guidicelli defends Maja Salvador on attitude problem rumors.
While Matteo Guidicelli has a new leading lady in the person of Kim Chiu as they pair up in the teleserye My Binondo Girl
, he is continuously being linked to Maja Salvador, who happens to be a close friend of Kim’s. In an interview during the press conference for My Binondo Girl
, Matteo reiterated that he and Maja are not a couple. “We started sa Inday sa Balitaw
, and we’re doing ‘yung movie na Basted kaya madalas kaming magkasama
and masaya kami.
We’re happy. We hang out a lot and masaya kaming nagkakasama
. We’re very special friends. Walang label.
The racecar driver-turned-actor admitted that he decided to keep his “special friendship” with Maja under the radar at the time when Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin
was airing since the actress was paired with Coco Martin in the said teleserye
. “I just don’t want to ruin it, her love team with Coco, that’s why I try to keep my distance. I’m so happy sa
team up nila sa Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin
. I’ll let her work. Pero
we still hang out a lot. Masaya kami
Being close to Maja, Matteo described her as friendly and humble, this amidst allegations that the actress has an attitude problem. “Maja is a very nice person. She’s so down-to-earth, but most of the times she is misunderstood by many. Mabait talaga siya
. She doesn’t complain. She works hard and she loves the people around her.
“Kapag magkasama kaming magkakabarkada
she’s very malambing
. Idol ko siya bilang artista kasi may ginagawa kaming
movie. Magaling siya at masipag
. I consider her my role model kasi mas matagal na siya sa
industry and ako nagsisimula pa lang
Matteo also shared that he is good friends with Kim. The two first worked together in 2007 in the weekly show GoKadaGo
. “Sobrang bait ni
Kim. Pareho kaming
Cebuano kaya madali kaming nagkakaintindihan.
She’s very approachable. Kahit hindi ka niya kilala nakikipagkwentuhan siya
He also dismissed speculations that there’s a brewing rivalry involving fellow My Binondo Girl
leading men Xian Lim and Jolo Revilla. According to Matteo, they all have a great time whenever they’re on the set, especially when they were in Hong Kong. “We’re all good friends na. Lagi kaming naguusap, nagtatawanan. Masaya kami lalo na nung taping namin sa
