Although Enrique Gil and Coleen Garcia admitted they dated for a few months back when they worked together in Good Vibes last year, the Princess and I actor said that they both understood why things just didn’t work out for them as a couple. “To start with it kasi, sinabi niya sa akin she really didn’t like any relationship in showbiz. Walang time, walang everything, and I knew that going into the relationship. Pero kaya naman pero hindi eh, kasi naging sobrang busy ako. She wasn’t really that busy that time so tiga-south yun so ngayon, siguro magkasama sila ni Gab (Valenciano) a lot of times. I guess kaya sa schedule nila na magsama which worked out great kasi pag sa akin talaga, sobrang busy,” he shared during Princess and I thanksgiving party held last August 22 at Cerchio restaurant in Quezon City.
With Gab Valenciano’s recent admission that he and Coleen are “Each other’s personal belonging,” Enrique said it is not true he is still affected because he hasn’t moved on yet. “Ay hindi, hindi totoo yan.. kasi kung hindi pa ako nag-move on, siguro nagwawala na ako, as in hindi ako concentrated sa trabaho. Pero wala talaga, mindset ko is Princess and I. Malapit na matatapos, siguro mga October ata tapos after Amorosa kakapasok lang ng Strangers. Malapit na rin yung screening ng Amorosa so I’m doing good. Maindie film yun. So ang daming nasa utak ko ngayon,” he admitted.
Enrique also admitted that he and Gab have the same circle of friends in showbiz and they have never let an issue come between them. “Kaibigan ko si Gab. They told me before pa. Actually we’d go out as a group kasama si Coleen, kasama din si Gab and namomoblema siya. Tapos sabi sa akin ni Jake (Cuenca), ‘Bro, namomoblema si Gab kasi he’s really starting to like Coleen.’ Sabi ko, ‘Okay lang, ano ka ba, walang problema.’ But when he came up to me pa rin sabi niya,’ Bro sorry talaga I like Coleen. I really like her and sana lang and I just want you to know.’ Sabi ko, ‘Tsong you don’t have to ask me pero salamat that you told me.’ Di ba parang respeto lang kasi barkada naman kami. Walang problema,” he said.
When it comes to the state of his love life right now, Quen said he is just too busy to date anyone. “Wala nga eh. Dapat siguro 100% na wala pang ginagawa masyado, gusto ko yung ready ka na, may time for yung kasama mo. Kasi may girlfriend ka nga or may liligawan ka tapos wala kang time sa kanya, anong klaseng boyfriend yun di ba? Wala kasi talagang every day may ginagawa, T-Th-S taping ng Princess and I tapos M-W-F shooting naman sa Amorosa tapos pagkatapos nun Strangers naman ang pumasok na isa pang movie kasi malapit na yung MMFF. Naka-isang shooting day pa lang ako, ang dami pang eksena,” he said.
