Angel Locsin and John Lloyd Cruz were placed on The Buzz’s hot seat when Boy Abunda asked them two crucial questions about their love lives. The host asked Angel if the reason she is afraid to put a label on her relationship with Phil Younghusband is because of her failed relationships in the past and the actress denied that it has something to do with her exes. “Ako hindi, hindi ako takot mag-commit. Unfair din naman baka isipin ng tao na dahil sa past experience ko or past na ka-relasyon ko, hindi yun. Siyempre kapag nagco-commit tayo dapat ‘yung sigurado, ‘yung ready na tayo ibigay yung buong sarili natin, para ‘di tayo nagkakasakitan. ‘Yun yung gusto ko. ‘Pag nag-commit ako, committed talaga.” Angel adds that she isn’t seeing anyone else besides Phil. “Wala naman ako dine-date na iba, ine-entertain. Oo, kanya naman ako pero mahirap na papasok kami sa isang relasyon na ‘di pa kami ready pareho.”
John Lloyd on the other hand, composed his thoughts for a while and only answered Boy’s question “Is Shaina Magdayao the girl you want to live with for the rest if your life?” with a few words. “Yun ang inaasahan. I’d like to hope so.”
As for their movie, Unofficially Yours, Boy also asked if there were times that they felt smitten by one another during the shooting of the film. “Imposible po kung di ka mabighani kung ang nasa harapan mo Angel Locsin,” was John Lloyd’s quick answer. Angel though admitted she had a small crush on her co-star in the past and as she begun to work with him they became close and comfortable towards one another. When asked if her crush became bigger, Angel could only reply, “Pwede, Tito Boy. Ang hirap kasi magkatrabaho kami nakikita ko siya as Macky (John Lloyd’s character in the film), mahal ko siya kasi in character kami Tito Boy but sa ngayon yun lang muna.”
Angel even recalled a memorable scene she did with John Lloyd. “Memorable scene sa akin yung nasa opisina kami kunwari tapos namula talaga yung mukha ko. May ginawa si Lloydie na yung tenga ko namula. Kasi wala sa script yung mga sinasabi niya eh.” John Lloyd added that it’s their director Cathy Garcia-Molina’s style to add moments that deviate from the script. “Alam naman ni Toni (his leading lady in Amnesia Girl) yung style ni Direk ‘di ba? (Cathy Garcia-Molina), mga surprises kapag eksena para ‘di mo anticipate yung mga mangyayari.”
The two stars add that Unofficially Yours is different from the drama show and romance-comedy films they did before. “Napakalaking bagay para sa amin, para sa team up namin kung maitatawid namin ‘to at kung tatanggapin ng mga tao because coming from Imortal, na you have a goth-romance na tema, and then you have this kind of movie na rom-com na mala-hindi rom-com, so malaking bagay para sa amin … sana po magustuhan niyo,” John Lloyd confessed.
Angel also admitted in the interview that she thinks this is the most daring film she has done at the moment. “Oo. Kasi ‘di naman ako sanay na ganito yung mga pelikula kong ginagawa. Kung meron mang love scenes siguro isa , or bilang yung mga kissing scenes.” John Lloyd though said Unofficially Yours comes close to In My Life, where he did a kissing scene with actor Luis Manzano, as his most daring film.
