People have been speculating about Matteo Guidicelli and Sarah Geronimo ever since they developed an onstage chemistry during their recent concert tour in the US.
“We just had good shows in America. It’s a great experience performing with the Popstar Princess. I admire everything about her. She’s a wonderful person. I appreciate that people appreciate what I did in the States. I’m very blessed to have worked with them,” he said in an interview with Push.com.ph.
When reminded of the fact that he used to have a huge crush on Sarah and even watched one of her shows in the past, Matteo replied with a laugh. “Five years ago pa ‘yan.” In any case, he said he’s open to doing a TV soap with Sarah if given the chance. “Hindi ko alam, wala naman plans. Pero hopefully magkaroon. Depende what they will give us. Any work is a great opportunity. We’ll see.”
As for his misunderstanding with Jessy Mendiola, Matteo explained that he didn’t mean to hurt anyone because of his determination to stay focused on his personal interests. “Siyempre I don’t want to hurt anybody. Everything that people do in life is a learning experience. Everything you go through makes you a better person. It’s a matter of prioritizing things. They happen all the time. But you just learn from them and sana the next time, it won’t happen again. There’s room to be a better person.”
As far as the public knows, Matteo never made a commitment with Jessy to begin with. But the actor/triathlete insisted that he doesn’t have any bad blood with his former Paraiso co-star. “We don’t have anything na masama together. We’re still friends. We work together for [an endorsement]. As long as she’s happy with what she does, I wish her the best. I know she’s a wonderful person. She’s a strong person.”
Asked if he’s holding back out of his fear of falling in love, Matteo answered, “Hindi naman ako takot [ma in love]. Marami lang ako priorities—yung soap, TV show, Ironman—they take so much time. Everyday nagigising ako 5 a.m., natutulog ako ng maaga. It’s all about knowing your priority and what’s best for you.”
He added that making a commitment is not something that needs to be rushed. “It’s not that there’s no time for love. I am just not looking for it. Hopefully, one day it will come. God will give it to us. You don’t have to look for it. It will come, someday.”
