After appearing solo on the red carpet at this year's Star Magic Ball, Rayver Cruz said he did not feel the need to bring a date and was simply happy to celebrate another year with his Kapamilya family. “Hindi naman sa required kami mag-attend pero talagang nag-e-enjoy kami every year sa Star Magic Ball. Every year linu-look forward naming itong event na ito. Masaya, happy happy na naman kami,” he said.
The On The Job actor also took the opportunity to clarify rumors that there was a conflict between him and Derek Ramsay. Derek recently admitted he was exclusively dating Rayver's ex-girlfriend Cristine Reyes which sparked rumors he was the third party that caused the breakup. “Parang tigilan na natin, tapos na. walang third party. Hindi naman ganun si Cristine. Maging masaya na lang tayo para sa kanila, huwag na tayo gumawa pa ng kahit ano,” he said.
The public saw Rayver and Derek play against each other in the Hero Ball earlier this month, but the 24-year-old actor said he saw no need to discuss personal matters with each other anymore. “Wala ng time at saka wala naman sigurong bad blood sa amin ni Derek. Hindi naman kailangan. Huwag na nating gawing issue kasi matagal ng wala kami ni Cristine,” he said. Rayver said he can confidently say he has already moved on from his last relationship. “Oo naman, mag-iisang taon na eh,” he added.
After playing a police investigator in the action-thriller On The Job, the talented actor said he feels very lucky to be part of such a world-class production and admitted that after the OTJ screening at the Cannes Film Festival, a lot of international film outfits that already expressed interest in distributing the movie. “Alam ko marami talagang gustong bumili, kung nabili man eh di sobrang saya namin. Sobrang proud na nakasama ako dun at sobrang congrats to direk Erik Matti. Ibang klase yung vision niya para sa pelikulang yun at lahat ng artista. Si Tito Joel (Torre) grabe ang galing,” he shared.
With regards to how the movie had an ending that was subject to interpretation, Rayver refused to confirm that it left an opening for a sequel involving him in the future. “Parang kayo na bahala mag-isip ng ending. Hindi ko lang sigurado yung part two kasi nga kung napanuod niyo naman yung ending di ba? (laughs). Pero maraming salamat sa lahat ng nanuod. Sobrang blessed ako na maging parte ng pelikulang yun,” he said.
