Angelica Panganiban on John Lloyd Cruz:'Nag-e-exist pala yung ganun na klaseng happiness'


103112-angelica_main.jpgAs she turns 26 this coming November 4, Angelica Panganiban will have a special birthday episode as part of the month-long celebration of Banana Split’s fourth anniversary. “Don’t miss this birthday episode because someone very important to me will guest in it,” she says during the Banana Split presscon held last Oct 30 at the Napa restaurant in Quezon City. Angelica is one of the original cast members of the weekend gag show. “I feel so blessed to be part of the show because I’ve always wanted to make people laugh,” she admits. 

During the presscon, Angelica shared her thoughts on John Lloyd Cruz’s recent admission on The Buzz that they are already officially a couple. “Tulad naman ng lagi naming sinasabi, wala kaming tinatago eh. Nagtataguan lang nung mga panahon na tinatanong kami eh wala naman talaga. So mahirap bigyan ng label yung mga bagay na wala pa naman talagang label noon. So ngayon na alam na namin kung ano kami sa isa’t isa, pag tinanong kami eh di diretso rin naming sasagutin,” she explains. Angelica says Lloydy’s admission was not really something they discussed or planned in advance. “Alam niyo hindi ko puwede i-base yung sasabihin ko na, ‘Yes ito na ako!’ kasi nagsalita siya sa The Buzz, dahil wala lang yun. Kung ako man yung nakaupo dun at tanungin ako, sasabihin ko oo kami di ba? Walang malaking issue. May nagtanong, sinabi namin. sinasabi ko ngayon na kami hindi para makumpleto yung buhay ko sa nangyaring interview di ba? Siguro mas masasabi kong mas okay ako ngayon, mas kumpleto yung pakiramdam ko dahil may taong nagpapasaya sa akin, nagpaparamdam sa akin at nagpupuno ng nawala sa akin,” she admits. 

Now that they have gone public with their feelings for each other, Angelica says that she is not really bothered by any issues or intrigues that will be thrown at them. “Mahirap sabihin kung ano yung nararamdaman nila di ba? Kasi nanggaling ako sa isang relationship na naging open ako. Ngayon na may nagsalita, parang inamin ni John Lloyd na kami na and nataon na sasabihin na, ‘Oh aamin rin naman,’ ganyan, ganyan. So parang ano bang gustong gawin ko ng publiko, magsalita ba talaga kami o hindi di ba? So siguro mas mabuti yung inamin namin na kami na, kung may mga masaya eh di good for you guys, masaya kayo. Yung mga hindi masaya, sasaya din kayo eventually sa mga life niyo. And ayoko ng bigyan ng detalye yung mga bagay bagay kasi hindi para pag-piyestahan ng mga tao yung personal kong buhay. Mas maganda yung ganun. Mas private, mas ako yun, happiness naming dalawa yun. and kung sino yung mga masaya at gustong makisali, welcome naman lahat eh. Pero yung mga nega, hindi namin kayang i-take yun.”  

The pretty actress refused to divulge the exact date when they started dating but shares she is very happy with her life right now. “Iba eh, parang out-of-this-world. Parang hindi mo alam na nag-e-exist pala yung ganun na klaseng happiness. Puwede pala yun, puwede pala. May dalawang tao pala talagang magkakasundo and kaya niyong suportahan ang isa’t isa. ganun ka-simple, walang hassle, walang issue, walang problema. Ayun,” she admits. Since they are both part of the Star Magic family, Angelica says being friends with Lloydy since before has made it easier for their families to accept them as a couple. “Yung nangyari naman kasi sa amin, simula dati pa magkaibigan na kami,magkaibigan yung parents niya at yung mama ko at family ko. so ayun nung nagkita kita kaming lahat eh nagkagulatan na lang kami na one day magkikita kami sa ganung paraan, yung iba na yung tingin mo sa kanila siyempre,” she says. 

Angelica says that they developed a connection after discovering more and more things about each other. “Ever since kasi hindi naman kami ganun ka-close eh, hindi rin naman namin pinapansin yung isa’t isa. hindi kami close, hindi kami bonding, walang ganun. Nag-uusap kami as in small talk, ganyan, kahit nung nasa Vietnam kami.  Siguro dumating kami sa point na sa kuwentuhan, habang nag-kuwe-kuwentuhan, nag-se-share ako ng mga experiences at nangyari sa akin eh nagulat ako na may tao pa lang ganun, actually may lalaking ganun na pakikinggan ka hanggang matapos mo yung kuwento mo. Tapos nagulat ako na as in nakuwento ko ng hindi siya sumasabat. Basta yun, tapos parang na-enjoy ko, enjoy ko yung kuwentuhan.”  

Both being talented actors, Angelica says she would prefer not to be paired with her real-life boyfriend in a project if she had the choice. “Mahirap eh (laughs). Nakakailang. Actually nag-work naman kami dati sa Maging Sino Ka Man tapos nung nagtrabaho kami para sa 24/7. Pero siyempre iba yun, iba yun talagang trabaho, work ganyan. Hindi naman namin akalain na one day magkakasalubong kayo and medyo parang ba’t ganun, parang nagkakasundo kami or ba’t parang may spark, may magic,” she shares. 

But when it comes to talking about her past relationships, Angelica would rather move on even though she could not admit to being fully healed from the experience. “Well hindi naman namin yung napag-uusapan. I don’t think issue siya, hindi siya big deal eh. Siguro ang importante is yung ngayon and yung future, yung past eh kaya natapos yun kasi may ibig sabihin di ba? -hindi eh, mahirap yun i-identify kasi kung ano naman yung nangyari sa akin sa past ko, desisyon ko naman na hindi yun i-kuwento sa public dahil yun din naman yung ipinangako ko sa nakaraan ko di ba? Tapos na yun,” she stresses.
