Dennis Trillo denies dating Jennylyn Mercado: ‘Wala pa naman akong binabalikan’


090214-Dennis_main.jpgCurrently busy with new TV projects as well as the much-anticipated “The Naked Truth” denim and underwear fashion show to be held at the SM Mall of Asia Arena on September 19, Dennis Trillo said he is focusing on his physique after being launched as one of the new Bench boys who will walk down the ramp for the global brand's prestigious fashion show. Joining him are fellow actors Tom Rodriguez, Martin Del Rosario, Dominique Roque, and Markki Stroem.

“Kahit meron kang time or wala, hanapan mo siya ng oras habang papalapit na yung main event talaga. Hindi sobrang strict ng diet ko. Masaya pa rin yung kain ko pero control lang. Kino-control ko yung mga puwede ko kainin. May sinusunod akong blood type diet one month na. Para siyang Cohen diet, pinipili mo lang yung mga pagkain na magiging beneficial sa ‘yo. Mahirap siya kasi hindi lahat puwede mo kainin eh, madaming bawal.”

After being paired with Kapuso actress Kris Bernal for the first time in a new series, Dennis said he appreciates the younger actress's efforts to befriend him. “Kasi di ba tahimik ako? So siya yung nag-e-effort na kausapin ako. Mas okay sa akin yung ganun. Kasi sa una mahihiya ako pero once nag-start na mag-usap tuloy-tuloy na. Nakakatuwa naman. Masaya ako na seryoso talaga siya sa trabaho niya and natutuwa ako na pinahahalagahan niya yung mga blessings na natatanggap niya kaya excited ako na makatrabaho siya. Seryoso siyang aktres,” he said.

The 33-year-old actor said they have already gotten to know each other more. “Sa totoo lang relaxed na kami sa isa't isa. Nung nag-taping kami nung pilot episode ng game show ni Dingdong Dantes ayun nakapag-usap kami ng onti. Magka-teammates pa kami kaya mas lalo kaming naging close. Binabasa namin ng maayos yung script. Nag-re-read lines kami. Basta pinag-aaralan namin ng husto yung eksena para walang maliligaw, buo pa rin yung chemistry kahit first time lang kaming pinagtambal and nakakatuwa rin na yung mga nakuhanan na namin na eksena pinanuod namin and maganda, kahit kami natuwa talaga kami,” he added.

After being admittedly single this year, Dennis said it does not mean he is closing his heart on finding love or that he will not be attracted to his current leading lady. “Hindi ko naman sinasara pero sa ngayon siyempre may bago kaming show. Ako matagal ako bago nagkaroon ulit sa huli kong show. Yung My Husband's Lover medyo phenomenal kaya hindi ko muna iniisip yung, 'Ayoko muna maging close or ayoko makipag-relasyon,' kasi pinagbubuti namin yung show para kahit i-compare mo siya sa mga previous naming nagawa, hindi siya nakakahiya di ba?” he explained during the press preview of "The Naked Truth" fashion show at the Bench Tower in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, last August 29.

After rumors circulated last month that he was again dating his former flame Jennylyn Mercado (which he already denied), Dennis said he is just happy they are back on speaking terms. “Minsan minsan nakakapag-usap. Okay naman kami eh. Basta firm ako dun sa sinabi ko na seryoso ako sa trabaho ngayon and para sa akin, yun muna yung magiging focus ko dahil sayang yung opportunity eh. Yung relasyon madali na yan pag okay na lahat, pagka naka-establish na yung career and lahat lahat. Madali na yun,” he said.

Although he refused to give specific details, the talented actor admitted he and Jennylyn worked on a duet for her album. But he said this does not mean he is looking for a reconciliation with the sexy actress. Some of the press have noticed that when he is asked to describe what he is looking for in a girl, the qualities seem to match those of Jen. “Baka nagkataon lang. Naging girlfriend ko siya dati so ganun din yung hinahanap ko. Baka nagkataon lang. Hindi naman bumabalik. Sa history ng mga ka-relasyon ko wala pa naman akong binabalikan,” he admitted.
