Martin del Rosario has no trouble taking on gay roles, his most recent being an episode of Maalala Mo Kaya. “Very open as long as… ako nga mas challenging yung character, mas gusto ko. Actually twice na, twice ko ginawa yung gay role. MMK din yung una pero four years ago na yata yung isa tapos yung recent ko lang is kay Kevin Balot story MMK this year yun. Open naman ako and MMK kasi ever since binibigyan ako ng magagandang roles. Mga 12 ko na yata 13 MMKs iba dun lead, iba support.”

Because he is used to playing such kind of roles, there have already been rumors about his own sexuality. When asked if he gets affected by gay rumors, he replied, “Hindi din… Ang dami sa totoo lang, maraming nagtsi-tsismis kasi sa Twitter makikita mo tina-tag sa ‘yo yung mga links tapos bubuksan mo makikita mo. Siyempre kapag nagbabasa ka ng tweets, may nag-mention sa ‘yo, ‘check this link.’ Ikaw naman takot ka, ‘ano ‘to?’ Pero hindi naman talaga ako yung apektado eh. Never naman ako nagsalita about it kasi parang problema na lang nila yun na gagawa sila ng story na yung iba talaga ang lalayo na talaga.

He also spoke about the worst gay rumor he ever heard about himself. “Meron daw naglaslas daw ako for a guy na… pero wala akong laslas marks.” Martin was then interrupted by a reporter who asked, “Guy na nakarelasyon mo?” to which Martin immediately answered, “Oo pero kahit hanapan niyo ko ng laslas marks wala kayong makikita sa akin. May kanya kanya namang choices pero basta ko di naman ako pumapatol sa ganyang mga bagay. Choice na nila yun.”

Martin admitted that he just ended his relationship with his girlfriend. “Nag-break na kasi very busy ngayon araw-araw taping ng JDC (Juan dela Cruz) tapos school pa. [Ang] school very hectic tapos ngayon ano nagma-major na rin ako sa Broad Comm (Broadcast Communication) so mabibigat klase ko ngayon. So minsan nga from taping diretso na ko school sobrang puyat and siyempre kelangan ko rin time with friends yung mga gimik-gimik so paano na, ano na mangyayari?”

He admitted that he has never had a girlfriend who came from showbiz. “Ako naman kasi never ako nagkaroon ng showbiz girlfriend, lahat non-showbiz. Okay lang pero kailangan makilala ko yung tao. Marami akong mga friends diyan pero wala yung matatawag mo talagang love.”
