Maja Salvador has the reputation of being very professional, never letting getting personal issues get in the way of work (as in the case of her breakup with Matteo Guidicelli and her tiff with erstwhile best friend Kim Chiu). As she previously mentioned in an interview, “Kailangan mong mag-move on, life goes on.” Same goes now that she’s in love again with current beau Gerald Anderson. In an exclusive interview with Push.com.ph last Friday, July 12, she said that she feels inspired to work whether she’s in a relationship or not. “Parehas naman yun eh. Depende kung paano mo siya i-handle.”
Asked how she handles a relationship, Maja shared that she makes sure that she has time not only for her boyfriend, but also for her family and other friends. “Dapat alam mo mag-balance mismo, alam mo balansehin yung trabaho mo, family mo, love life. Ikaw lahat yun eh. Kung hahayaan mong maapektuhan, dapat ang love life o kung ano man ‘yan, wala dapat makakaapekto sa trabaho mo kasi wala silang kinalaman sa trabaho mo. So, lahat yun naka-separate.”
After confirming that they’re officially together, Maja said that she doesn’t see the need to further discuss the details of her romance with Gerald. What with the controversies surrounding them, she said she prefers to keep things as private as much as possible. “Hindi naman sa... tahimik lang kasi ako eh. Mas gusto ko ng tahimik kasi hindi naman siya part ng trabaho ko. Oo, very private ako pagdating sa love life. Yun na lang sa akin. Lahat pwede ko naman i-share. Kayo naman meron kayong alam, pero siyempre huwag na tayo magdetalye pa.”
As it is, she still has lots of goals for her career in the next few months. Aside from doing a new teleserye, she has been busy with concert tours as part of her tenth year anniversary in the biz. This time, she gets to showcase her talent in dancing and singing. Apparently, she dreams of conquering Araneta Coliseum one day. “Para may bago naman maipakita sa supporters, makita nila kahit papaano marunong ako kumanta ng kaunti. Alam nila Mr. M (Johnny Manahan of Star Magic), very supportive naman sila. Dream ko lang yun. Hindi ko pa plano this 2013. Pero malay mo kapag may producer na biglang magkagusto ng show,” she beamed.
