With Galema airing its final episode by the end of the month, Matteo Guidicelli said he is already gearing up for his next TV project, the next season of Promil Pre-School I-Shine Talent Camp as well as currently shooting The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition Doubles.
After working with Galema director Wenn Dermas for the past six months, Matteo admitted he has learned a lot of things on and off cam from the blockbuster director. “Alam niyo magaling yan si Direk Doc Wenn (laughs), marami siyang alam sa buhay eh. You know, he’s a director so he knows about psychology also, he knows stuff about human beings so he always gives good advice to all of us,” he revealed.
Matteo said direk Wenn also gives him advice when it comes to handling love. The 23-year-old Kapamilya hunk has been rumored to already be in a relationship with Sarah Geronimo, but both of them have yet to confirm or deny the real status of their relationship.
Matteo said what he has learned from the Galema director are good lessons on life. “He tells all of us that we do whatever we want, but there should be a limit to everything. Kumbaga he just reminds us, we feel that he cares for us, we made this great bond sa Galema so we ask him for advice and he gives us really good stuff,” he explained.
Although he and Andi Eigenmann were first paired together in the 2010 hit series Agua Bendita, Matteo said their friendship actually started earlier even before Andi entered showbiz. Since then, they have really been nothing more than just good friends. “Since Agua Bendita naman sobrang close kami. Before Agua magkakilala na kami and I consider Andi to be one of my best friends so I’m very, very proud to have Andi as a friend in my life. Iba yung relationship namin ni Andi eh, para kaming aso’t pusa (laughs) sabi nila eh,” he said.
Known as an outspoken and passionate actor, Matteo said he values people who have principles and good values in life. “What makes me mad [is] when people are disrespectful. I really believe in respect. Yung pinaka-importante sa buhay is respect. If you walk into a room, dapat you respect one another, ‘di ba? So yun lang, I don’t get mad fast eh,” he shared.
The mestizo hunk said he is not the type to take revenge on others. “It depends on the levels, but if the person means a lot, you really fight for what’s right. If the person doesn’t mean anything to you, then just let it go and wala na,” he said.
