Toni Gonzaga says Paul Soriano isn't jealous of John Lloyd Cruz: 'Nabuo na yung trust namin'
011214-toni_mainphoto.jpgIn her new sitcom Home Sweetie Home, Toni Gonzaga plays wife to John Lloyd Cruz in what is reported to be this generation's John En Marsha. Toni admitted she is lucky to have been paired with one of the Kapamilya network's top talents. “Napakabait na tao, napaka-generous sa eksena. Suwerte yung mga nakakatrabaho niya talaga kasi he brings out the best. Lahat ng leading lady niya nadadala niya so hindi mahirap na makatrabaho si Lloydy kasi binibigay niya yung kailangan ng leading lady niya. Madaling ma-in love sa kanya, madaling kiligin sa kanya kasi ibibigay niya sa iyo,” she admitted.

After first being teamed up in Star Cinema's My Amnesia Girl in 2010, Toni admitted it took a while for her to get comfortable doing scenes with Lloydy again. “Hindi siguro mawawala kasi iba yung level ng comfortability namin ni John Lloyd sa isa't isa kasi hindi naman kami everyday na nagkakasama sa work. Last time kami nagkasama was three years ago so siyempre nung nagkasama kami ulit, naiilang kami ulit. Gumagawa kami ng mga eksena na sweet pero hindi madaling ibalik yung dating pagkakasama kasi ang husay naman niya talaga, mapagbigay tapos napakagaling na actor. Pag nasa eksena na kami, mawawala na lahat ng hiya. Nung una talaga meron, yung first na mga eksena na ginawa namin kasi mag-asawa kami tapos sweet lagi. Pero eventually nung nag-dire-diretso na, nawala na rin,” she shared.

On playing her first married role, Toni says she has learned a few things about marriage because of her new project. “Na kahit na may asawa ka, hindi mawawala yung pagmamahal at respeto mo sa mga magulang mo, kahit na minsan unreasonable sila kailangan mo irespeto kasi magulang mo sila at saka may limitasyon yung pangingialam ng magulang sa relasyon ng mag-asawa. Tapos yung sa pagka may asawa ka pala mas hahaba yung pasensya mo (laughs) kasi may sinumpaan kayo na for better or worse, through thick and thin, so hindi lang sa masaya, kailangan damayan mo siya pag may mahirap na pinagdadaanan din. Commitment,” she explained.

Toni said that even though she has already said in the past that she wants to get married by the age of 30, she is not impatient if it happens at a later time. “May asawa na ako sa TV. Sa personal hindi ko alam. Pero lagi namang ganun eh, plano ng plano, lahat naman tayo may plano sa buhay, usually yung mga plano natin hindi lahat natutupad. Ako siyempre may mga plans ako, may mga sinet akong goals. Pero at the end of the day, it's always God's will naman kung anong gusto niyang mangyari sa buhay mo. So eventually if it will happen, it will happen. Ready na ako kahit anong ibigay sa akin ng life ko ngayon. Parang I've reached a point na whatever it is that life is going to offer me, I'm going to take it wholeheartedly. This sitcom, this show when it was offered to me, it came out of nowhere. Hindi ko hinigi, hindi ko in-expect. Madaming surprises na dumadating sa buhay so when that time finally comes and happens, siyempre I'm going to embrace it whole-heartedly,” she said.

On the set, Toni said Lloydy is a true gentleman and a good conversationalist. “Nag-uusap kami ni Lloydy siyempre hindi ganun kalalim. May mga bagay I'm sure ikukuwento lang niya kay Angelica (Panganiban), yung mga super personal. But we talk about life in general. Wala naman kaming problema sa personal na buhay, puro masaya lang yung pag-uusap namin, trabaho, mga common friends,” she said. Despite their growing closeness, Toni said her boyfriend Paul Soriano will have nothing to be jealous of. “Hindi naman, kasi kahit nung My Amnesia Girl. Sabi pa nga niya isa yun sa pinaka-paboritong pelikula niya na nagawa ko eh… Naku hindi. Siguro sa dami ng mga nagawa ko ng trabaho tapos naka-partner ko na rin, never naman nagkaroon ng ganun. Siguro for the past six years nabuo na yung trust namin,” she added.
