Still one of the very controversial actors of today, John Lloyd Cruz remains a hot topic when it comes to his personal life. Recently, John Lloyd was said to have been spotted with ex-flame Ruffa Gutierrez in a bar.
“It’s very natural. JL and I are friends. We see each other. We say hi. We say hello. May pinagsamahan kami, dapat maging magkaibigan kami,” the actress commented on the issue.
Also, John Lloyd was said to have been seen talking to his former girlfriend Shaina Magdayao at Bea Alonzo’s birthday party.
“We’re ok. Ah… binabati naman niya ako pagnagkikita kami,” Shaina said.
In an interview with Boy Abunda on “The Buzz ng Bayan” this Sunday, John Lloyd was grilled on how he feels about what people think of him because of his private life.
“Honestly, depende sa mood ko. Dahil masyado kong kilala ang sarili ko, tsaka alam ko yung totoo,” the actor admitted.
John Lloyd continued by saying that as an actor, he can’t really put a boundary between his public and private life. “Di mo din naman kasi mahihiwalay. Kasi paglabas mo ng bahay, nakikita kami ng tao, sabi ko nga dati, paglumabas ka ng bahay mo trabaho nay un. Andiyan lagi yung iyong audience na iniisip mo na ayaw mo masaktan, maoffend, makaramdam na di mo sila nirerespeto. Gusto ko malaman nila na iniintindi ko, na hindi wala akong pakialam. Kagaya din nila gusto kong maniwala na may sarili din akong buhay. Yun siguro yung di nawala simula pa nung nagumpisa ako hanggan ngayon, ganun yung thinking ko.”
The star of ABS-CBN’s newest sitcom “Home Sweetie Home” also revealed that there’s this discomfort he feels when he is asked to discuss his personal life.
“Uh, no. There’s always been this discomfort when people ask me about my personal life, hindi lang naman din love life eh. Could be anything. Yun lang naman talaga yung nasesensationalize, yung love life,” said John Lloyd. “Pero, kaya siya may discomfort, dahil may effort from a lot of people na pasukin. Kaya lang kasi wala naman kasi interesante sa love life ko, alam ko lang dalawang tao kami, kung sino man yung minamahal mo, dalawang tao kayo na interesado sa isa’t isa. Siguro ano, may mga pagkakataon din naman na gusto namin isigaw, gusto namin i-share sa lahat ng tao lalo na sa mga sumusuporta sa amin pero kasi kapalit nun kapag nagshare ka ng magandang bagay, asahan mo yung mapait kelangan mo din ibahagi.”
On his current relationship with Angelica Panganiban, when asked by Boy what makes them click, John Lloyd disclosed, “Openness, that’s one. And we really get along. Ang daming mga bagay na pareho naming gusto. Magkaibigan kasi kami…Sobrang ano kami, steady lang. Happy lang kami. Yung art na naappreciate namin they tend to oppose, they tend to contradict each other. Yung pinangagalingan nila, magkaiba pero in the end it makes it more exciting kasi masaya lang kami.”
Although they also have their share of arguments, the funny actor revealed that he’s the one who gets high-strung sometimes. “Oo naman like any normal couple nag-aaway, but fight, fight like a heated argument? Yung may taasan ng boses? Ako lang naman madalas mataas ang boses kasi kapag nadala ako, emotionally may gusto ako ipaliwanag, anyway hindi naman importante, yung ganun lang. Kaya naming magusap, kahit ano kaya namin pagusapan.”
As to where their relationship is going, John Lloyd said he’s thankful for Angelica’s presence in his life. “Sa mas magandang bukas? (laughs) Well, yeah, it’s a promising relationship. Madami siyang pinanghahawakan. Palalim siya ng palalim, ganda niya. It’s a beautiful relationship. It’s a journey, totoo, napakaswerte ko na pumayag siya na ganito ako kalapit sa kanya and pumayag siya to take on this journey, na maging part ako ng buhay niya. Maging kasama niya ko sa araw-araw na ginawa ng Diyos, para sa kanya, kasama niya ko at pumapayag, at pinipili niya na nandun ako. I must be a very lucky man.”
John Lloyd’s very first sitcom, “Home Sweetie Home” will air on the first week of January 2014. “Home Sweetie Home” which also stars Toni Gonzaga, is directed by Bobot Mortiz.
