Alex Gonzaga admits she doesn't date anymore: ‘I don't want to waste my time’


080614-alex_main.jpgIn the daytime series Pure Love, Alex Gonzaga plays the role of a woman looking for genuine love. But in real life, the actress said that is not her top priority. “Ayokong magsalita ng tapos pero so far right now the doors are closed for my heart. Kasi parang ayoko na muna i-focus muna dun kasi laging wala naman talaga. Hihintayin ko na lang yung The One na The One talaga para sa akin. Hindi na ako magpupumilit or iisipin na, 'Baka ito?' yung sure na talaga akong siya na, yun na talaga,” she shared.

The 26-year-old actress said she appreciates her Pure Love co-star Arjo Atayde who has been vocal about being willing to wait for her to be ready to love again. “Kung totoo man yun o ano, natutuwa naman ako, na-fa-flatter ako, pero sa ngayon is focused pa kami talaga dito sa paggawa namin sa Pure Love so ayaw na muna namin mag-isip ng anything personal, mas focused pa muna kami sa mga characters namin,” she admitted.

Alex said Arjo is a good man on and off cam. “Okay naman, mabait si Arjo, lagi siyang nagpapakain sa set. Minsan hindi kami sa production nag-re-request, sa kanya kami nag-ri-request ng, 'Huy ito naman yung dalhin mo next taping! (laughs)' so masaya, masarap katrabaho si Arjo tapos ang galing galing niya umarte. Kapag nasa eksena talagang ramdam na ramdam mo. Hindi siya si Arjo, siya mismo yung character kaya mahusay siya,” she admitted.

When asked about her closeness to PBB All-In housemate Fourth Pagotan whom she met during her 49-day stay, Alex said it cannot go beyond friendship. “Kasi may girlfriend siya so ayoko. Ayoko naman na mahihirapan pa ako na mag-adjust sa kanya. Naniniwala ako na dapat sa isang relasyon kung meant to be talaga kayo dapat hindi masyado pinipilit sa simula pa lang. Pag meron ng konting pilit sa simula, madaming nangyayari, baka hindi talaga dapat. Madami naman akong natutunan like maturity, responsibility, ganyan. Nakabuti naman siya tapos pag labas ko nag-start na kami sa taping for Pure Love,” she added.

For Alex, defining love is not measured in actions alone. “Pure love is yung intention ng tao. Kung ang intention ng tao is mahalin ka lang ng walang kapalit pure yun. Pag may nanliligaw sa akin, kasi before sabi ko sige try natin, parang sige kilalanin natin. Tapos hindi ko talaga binibigyan ng time na tingnan yung ibang point of view so parang kinikilatis ko muna kung sino man yung gustong manligaw. Kiniklatis ko talaga kung talaga bang siya na. Kasi pag hindi, I don't want to waste my time. Strong words (laughs),” she said.

Even though her first major Kapamilya project is a drama, Alex said she is not trying to veer her career path away from her older sister who is known for doing comedy. “Hindi naman conscious effort. Kung sabihin naman na mas magaling siya totoo naman yun and okay lang sa akin yun kasi nakapasok naman talaga ako sa showbiz dahil sa kanya so I owe it to her. Walang problema sa akin yun. Pero wala ding conscious effort na ilayo ko yung image ko sa kanya. Siguro sobrang blessed lang ako na binigyan ako ng trabaho na puwede ko mapakita yung kakayahan ko sa drama pero siyempre hindi naman talaga ako dramatic actress. Siguro ito lang yung saktong nabigay sa akin na trabaho and napili ako siguro dahil sa mga VTR so sobrang walang ganun, natutuwa lang ako na magkasama kami,” she shared.

In Pure Love, Alex said that they try to balance the right amount of comedy along with the dramatic scenes. “Tinitimpla namin kasi gusto namin kahit medyo mabigat yung topic nung soap, pero yung character ko na si Diane is positive so nasa gitna siya ng meron siyang pinagdadaanan kasi kailangan niya makabalik sa katawan niya pero yung positivity niya, yung pagiging funny nandun pa rin,” she said.
