Whether it was Paulo Avelino’s “style” to woo a girl by wowing her with smooth conversations, actress KC Concepion couldn’t tell.
But what she’s sure of is that “Magaling siya manligaw kung ganun,” said KC during an appearance on Buzz ng Bayan on Sunday.
Breaking her silence for the first time since Paulo confessed earlier on the same show that he and the actress are dating, KC shared that she actually admires the actor’s passion for the craft.
“Hinahangaan ko siya bilang aktor and since priority ko ngayon 'yung work ko as an actress, ang ganda rin pag-usapan 'yung trabaho namin,” she said.
The Mega daughter admitted that in a way she has swallowed what she said before that she won’t be dating an actor again.
“Sabi ko nga before, I’m never, never going to date an actor. Ayaw ko na talaga. [Pero] iba rin naman siya sa mga actors. Urian winner na 'yun. Tinuturuan niya rin ako about sa character building,” she underscored.
Paulo won the Best Actor trophy from Gawad Urian last year for his independent film Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa.
While she has clarified in the past that she and Paulo are not exclusively dating, KC said that she enjoys hanging out with him.
“I do [enjoy hanging out with him]. Feeling ko parang hindi lang siya yung basta nagpapa-cute,” she explained.
With someone like Paulo, who openly confessed his admiration for her, perhaps the only question that needs to be addressed is whether or not she’s ready to open her heart and fall in love anew.
Something which she has no direct answer as of the moment saying that, “Actually isa iyan sa mga nakakapagpakaba sa akin na parang takot ba ako? Sabi ko nga kay Mama [Sharon Cuneta], ‘Ano ba ito. Lagi kong sinasabi na hindi ako ready mag-commit. Kailan ba ako magiging ready ulit? Takot ba ako ng over?’ Sabi lang niya at ng mga Tita ko, ‘Give yourself a chance.’”
It may be recalled that Sharon earlier commented that she doesn’t want to meddle with her daughter’s affairs but she added, “Pero okay lang sa akin basta masaya si KC. ‘Yun lang.”
But all things considered, the Boy Golden actress conceded that the Honesto star is indeed a "boyfriend material." However she stressed that they are just “Friends. Good friends. Walang label” as of the moment.
