Maja Salvador on relationship with Gerald Anderson: ‘Secure naman ako’


121814-maja_main.jpgMaja Salvador admitted that she is deeply saddened by the death of her grandmother last December 14, but is thankful to have a lot of blessings in her life. “Almost perfect [yung 2014 ko] pero yung isang taong nag-alaga sa akin medyo kinuha na siya ni God. Pero siyempre wala naman akong kailangang pagsisishan o i-regret kundi i-continue pa rin yung life. Katulad ngayon after ko siyang ihatid nung Sunday, nagkaroon naman ako ng isang magandang blessing na nag-announce na nag-Platinum na yung album ko na parang ngayon feeling ko mas may mag-ga-guide na sa akin kasi dalawa na sila ng papa ko na guardian angel ko sa taas,” she said.

Maja said a big source of support was her boyfriend and Gift of Life co-star Gerald Anderson. “Nandiyan siya everyday. Nandiyan lang siya. Kahit may trabaho siya, hindi siya nakakalimot magparamdam. Nandiyan lang siya,” she shared during the Kapamilya Christmas Special Gift of Life presscon held last December 16 inside the ABS-CBN compound.

Although they are known to keep a low profile when it comes to their relationship, Maja said she does not regret agreeing to do the TV special. “Siyempre maganda yung kuwento at saka pasko naman. Kahit papaano siyempre mapapaisip ka rin ng, ‘Ano nga bang pakiramdam pag nakatrabaho ko siya?’ At least may bago akong nalaman sa kanya, kung paano siya magtrabaho as an actor. Kasi parang it’s time naman to share our love and happiness,” she said.

While taping for the show, Maja said she discovered new things about Gerald on the set. She clarified that working together on the show doesn’t automatically mean they will start doing more projects together in the future. “Na-discover ko sa kanya na sobrang parehas kami na iba din talaga yung passion sa trabaho namin at grabe din naman yung love niya sa trabaho niya. Kasi nakikita mo kung gaano niya pahalagahan talaga. Hindi naman kami love team so wala akong ini-expect na mga fan base. May mga fans na gusto rin naman na magsama din kami pero ito ginawa namin dahil sa love namin sa aming trabaho, sa aming mga bosses and it’s Christmas pero hindi kami gumawa nito para makabuo ng love team,” she explained.

121814-maja_main.jpgWhen asked if she thinks Gerald is “The One” for her, Maja said only time will tell. “Ipag-pe-pray ko yan kasi kahit na sabihin ko na he’s ‘The One,’ hindi ko alam kung siya talaga. Eh kasi siyempre may mga nakikita ako sa kanya na parang pasok naman sa banga (laughs) na parang kung ano yung gusto mo sa isang man ay nasa kanya talaga. I’m hoping and praying,” she admitted.

During the presscon, Gerald was very vocal about his intention to end up with her. The talented actress said she is happy with where their relationship is headed. “Siyempre para sabihin niya yun parang nakakatuwa na hindi na ito yung basta puppy [love] lang, yung parang parehas kami na may goals sa buhay so parehas sana kami magtagal or sana hindi mag-give up sa bawat isa,” she said.

Maja admitted that their relationship is very mature. “Parang hindi namin pinapatapos yung araw na hindi namin tatapusin (on whatever may be troubling them). Kasi importante yun eh, yung maayos kaagad yung mga problema kasi importante sa relationship yung communication, yung pagkakaintindihan niyo. Kung dati akala mo puppy love lang, parang ngayon mas alam mo na yung meaning ng love. Alam mo na kung paano i-handle ang mga sitwasyon na darating,” she said.

As for their Christmas plans together, Maja said they don’t feel the need to announce it to the public because they celebrate love every day. “Ngayong Christmas secret muna pero for sure kahit naman hindi Christmas, every day naman special naman para sa amin every time we meet,” she said.

Watch Gerald Anderson and Maja Salvador in the Kapamilya Christmas Special Gift of Life starting December 22, Monday, on ABS-CBN.
