Sam believes that Jessy is wise beyond her years.
It's almost the last quarter of the year yet actor-singer Sam Milby has just embarked on new beginnings, one of them is with a new love interest in the person of actress Jessy Mendiola.
In a taped interview aired on "The Buzz" on Sunday, Sam confessed to have been charmed by the "simplicity and beauty" of the "Maria Mercedes" star.
“Nililigawan ko si Jessy. She’s aware. I did let her know my intentions, yes. I like her, she’s beautiful. I like her simplicity. Hindi siya maarte,” he supplied.
With a nine-year gap between them, the 29-year-old actor reasoned that he considers the 20-year-actress as someone who is actually wise beyond her years.
"I think a lot of times she’s misunderstood too. Masyado siyang bata pero she’s mature for her age. I can’t say na I know her that well but the times that I’ve hung out with her have been fun," he shared.
Jessy for her part, via a message sent to "The Buzz," expressed willingness to get to know the "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala" star citing that “Single ako at single siya so bakit naman hindi."
According to Jessy they "go out and hang" but despite describing the singer as "very sweet and nice" she clarified that "Nothing super serious since alam niya priority ko ang career ko."
In the end, Jessy said she's not closing any doors for Sam, saying that "Why not let him get the chance na makilala ako and ganoon din ako sa kanya."
“Let’s see how it goes na lang,” the actress added.
Sam and Jessy's shared the screen for the first time last year during a "Maalala Mo Kaya" episode.
Prior to wooing Jessy, Sam confessed to be "hanging out" with Shaina Magdayao while the former "Paraiso" actress hogged headlines recently due to a failed romance with Matteo Guidicelli.
