Zanjoe Marudo echoed girlfriend Bea Alonzo’s statement in a previous interview that in their relationship, it is non-issue as to who is the bigger star. At the press conference of the upcoming late-night gag show Banana Nite which premieres Monday, February 25, Zanjoe explained that this subject does not trouble them.
“Kasi naman magiging problema pa ‘yun kung kami mismo nag-compete kami, eh; kung sino’ng mas magaling, sino’ng mas sikat, sino’ng mas maraming project,” Zanjoe reasoned. “Dapat maging masaya kami sa isa’t-isa, suportahan [ang career ng bawat isa].
Instead of competing with each other, Zanjoe said that they try to be there for each other, especially at times when one of them needs help or support when it comes to work. “Minsan nag-uusap kami, humihingi ako ng payo sa kanya pag may project na nag-aalangan ako. Pag may project siya na nag-aalangan na tatanggapin niya [pinapayuhan ko]. Nagsasabihan kami ng ano… so kaming dalawa mismo ang nagtutulungan.”
The couple who have been together for more than a year celebrated a simple yet romantic Valentine’s Day. The actor said that he gave Bea flowers and just had a romantic dinner at Bea’s house. Zanjoe said that they hired someone to play the baby grand piano while they were having dinner.
