Arjo Atayde clears up rumors that Alex Gonzaga has an attitude problem on set.
Arjo Atayde said that it was not uncomfortable doing a scene with his mother Sylvia Sanchez in the afternoon soap Pure Lov
e. "Hindi [ako nailang] kasi pagpasok ko sa
scene in character na ako, kasi ano ako eh ma
-method so pagpasok ko sa eksena, nanay ko siya pero nanay ko siya sa
story so ‘yun inisip ko,”
The actor shared that his mother gives him advice when it comes to acting every now and then. “Normally ‘pag may nakita siyang mali sasabihin niya agad ako, sasabihin niyang ‘Ang pangit ng reaksyon mo dito, ang pangit ng ganito mo ‘yung kilos mo, sana ito ang ginawa mo’," he relayed. With Pure Love, he relayed that he was receiving good feedback from his mom. "Pero for this one wala for Pure Love, so far, so good, so from the start until now wala siyang bad comments.”
Arjo shared that he only fully realized how good his mom is when it comes to acting the moment they got to act together in the afternoon soap. "Sa totoo never ko siya na-realize until naka-eksena ko siya kasi sanay ako eh, sanay ako na kausap siya, oo magaling… alam ko lang magaling siya pero iba ‘yung first hand eh so nong kaeksena ko siya, nong tiningnan ko siya sa mata talagang iba, grabe ibang-iba," he said.
Arjo shared that he is still currently single. When asked if he is courting his co-star Alex Gonzaga, he replied, "Di naman [nililigawan] more of ano kasi since sinabi niya nga na her doors are closed and then second pressured siya kasi siya ’yung bida sa Pure Love, medyo ‘yun nga I’m getting to know her and later on maybe mas ituloy ko pa ang panliligaw pero for now work muna," he said.
He also clarified that Alex does not have an attitude problem contrary to some rumors. "Sobrang bait, mabait talaga siya, wala siyang arte. Wala naman siyang attitude na pinapakita sa amin, as in nada, wala talaga siyang attitude problem for me and for anyone.”
Arjo added, “Mabait siya at hindi naman siya kikay na maarte, kikay siya na makulit, mahilig siya magpatawa, mahilig siya laging masaya, ‘yun ang nakikita ko.”
