Julia Montes admits she still has constant communication with rumored suitor Coco Martin.
Although they don’t see each other as much as before, Julia Montes revealed that she still has constant communication with former leading man and rumored suitor Coco Martin. “Close pa rin naman kami, may
communication pa rin kami. Pero dahil sobrang
busy namin, bida siya sa Juan Dela Cruz, ang taas-taas ng
bonding like before na
halos everyday kami magkasama dahil sa mga
[taping] schedule, hindi na tulad dati. Pero okay kami,
super close pa rin naman
,” she said during her launch as the celebrity endorser of Freshlook Dailies contact lenses held at Torch Restaurant, San Juan last May 30.
Coco had been very vocal about his intention to court Julia after she turned 18. The latter even picked him as her escort for her 18th birthday. When asked about the status of their courtship, Julia couldn’t help but smile as she tried to dodge the questions. “Hindi naman ako ang nililigawan niya, si lola pa rin. So until now, si lola pa rin. Kung okay na ba kay lola? Hindi ko pa natatanong si lola about dun.”
The entertainment press teased Julia that she seemed a little nervous whenever she’s being linked to Coco, leading everyone to think that there’s something going on between them. “Ang okay kasi kay Coco hindi siya nagbago. Like may mga advice pa rin siyang ibinibigay para sa upcoming show ko. Hindi siya yung porket nakatrabaho ko before, after nun wala na. Kung ano siya noon, ganoon pa rin until now.”
When prodded if Coco acts like a suitor or more like a friend towards her, Julia shyly answered, “Ayoko mag-assume! Hahaha! Pero yun nga. Yun pa rin naman siya. Nate-tense ako. Nakaka-tense mga tanong niyo. Kung sino ang nagpapakilig sa akin? Basta happy ako ngayon.”
One thing’s for sure though, Coco remains to be the man closest to her heart. “Ang super close ko talaga at nakaka-jive ko talaga since before pa ay si Coco dahil pareho kaming laki sa lola. At in a way kasi off cam medyo mature ako [mag-isip], so siguro yung mga mature na bagay na itinuturo niya sa akin nagdya-jive kami. Mas natuto ako sa kanya, siya rin natuto siya sa teenage experiences ko.”
