Coco Martin denies he's already married


072113-coco_main.jpgRecent reports in tabloids claim that Coco Martin got married during his stay in Canada way back during his indie film days. Apparently, this is supposedly the reason why he has always been elusive about having a girlfriend in showbiz. But the multi-awarded actor categorically denied such the reports, contrary to his married civil status as indicated in his Canadian passport which the tabloids supposedly got a hold of. “Actually, marami nga nagsabi sa akin niyan kaso sabi ko hindi naman ako umaalis. Saan naman nila nakuha yun? Eh, ngayon wala kaming [alis] dahil lagi kaming nagte-taping,” said Coco who granted an interview with the entertainment media right after he received his Actor of The Year Award at the Yahoo OMG Awards 2013 held at the MOA Arena last Friday night, July 19.

Coco further explained that settling down is far from his mind for now since he’s busy working hard to secure his family’s future. And when the time comes, he’d rather not discuss the details of his love life to the public. “Siguro yung mga tao naco-confuse dahil hanggang ngayon wala akong time para mag girlfriend. Siguro ‘pag dumating din yung pagkakataon na napagisip-isip ko na o talagang may panahon na ako para sa sarili ko, siguro kung meron man akong taong iibigin o dadating yung punto na gusto ko na rin magpamilya, siguro para sa akin lahat naman ibinigay ko na, lahat naman ipinakita ko na. Ang gusto ko siguro, arborin ko na, personal ko ng buhay yun. Tsaka ang inaano ko naman kasi gusto ko ng tahimik at simpleng buhay in the future. Kaya ngayon ibinibigay ko yung best ko para sa trabaho.”

When prodded if he ever got married in Canada prior to his rise to stardom, Coco replied, “Ang tagal tagal ko nang nandito [sa Pilipinas] eh. [Kahit dati] wala.  
Yung passport ko Pilipino. [Kung may lumalabas man na ganon], siyempre alam ni’yo naman trabaho natin. Open naman tayo sa kahit ano. Kahit sino naman tao may opinion kapag sinabi sa’yo wala ka naman magagawa.” 

He reiterated that he’s not ready to settle down anytime soon. “Kumbaga wala pa sa isip ko. Tsaka bata pa naman ako. Uunahin ko siyempre pamilya ko. Kapag natupad ko na siguro lahat ng pangarap ko para sa pamilya ko, siguro yun ang tamang pagkakataon para isipin ko magpakasal.” 

Asked if he gets affected whenever he gets involved in controversies, Coco good-naturedly said that he understands that it’s part of the biz after all. “Hindi na po. Nagsisimula pa lang ako nasanay na ako sa ganyan. Tsaka nung pinasok ko yung trabaho ko, alam ko na kasama ‘yan."

Artista ako. Part ng work ko yun. Ayoko naman pigilan ang mga tao. Basta sabi ko, the more na tahimik ka at wala kang ginagawang masama sa kapwa mo, wala ka dapat ikatakot.”
