Gerald Anderson has moved on from his relationship with Maja Salvador.
On Tonight with Boy Abunda
, Gerald Anderson talked about his plans on his work life and shared intimate details on his private life.
Gerald’s admitted that his movie with Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil, Everyday, I Love You, will be his last project for this year. Although he does not plan on leaving the showbiz industry for good, the actor shared, “Well, nagsimula po yung taon ko with Halik sa Hangin, Dyesebel, Nathaniel, and then itong Everyday, I Love You. Tito Boy fourth quarter na (ng taon), the movie is out now, I’m just going to take some personal time out with my family. Gusto ko pang magproduce ng different kinds of movies. Nagtayo po ako ng sarili kong K-9 search and rescue team. Marami po akong ibang gagawin.”
In her previous interview, Maja shared that she’s close with Gerald’s mom who even took care of her. Gerald shared, “Tito Boy, yung Mom ko is very Filipina. Kung baga, conservative yung values niya iba, probinsyana pa. She found a way, siya po mismo ang nag-effort para maging close sila at magkaroon ng bond.”
Maja also previously shared that she and Gerald ran across each other backstage of ASAP, and that he hugged her, and that they’re starting to talk again. Having said that, the host asked, “Are you comfortable being friends with your exes?” The actor said that the scenario three or five years ago would have been different. Gerald even admitted, “Kasi iba po yung pag-iisip ko noon - immature, stupid, pride. (But now) Tito Boy, kung mayroon pong opportunity to say something, make things better, I would.”
The host then could not help but mention his previous relationship with Kim Chiu. The actor was then asked, “Did you get the chance to talk to Kim also?” He replied, “You forget the past but never forget the lessons, di ba? Be friends with Kim? Of course.”
“Pero napag-usapan nyo? Are you the type who would go back and actually talk about things?” the host interjected. Gerald then said, “If I had the chance, Tito Boy, of course po. I mean Tito Boy magkasama kaming nagsimula sa lahat nang ito. It’s our 10th anniversary (in showbiz) next year.”
On the importance with having closure in every relationship, the actor admitted that he has found closure and shared, “It’s hard to leave it ‘pag open. But like I said kanina, when pride gets in the way, yung parang minsan, gusto mong batiin or tinitingnan mo siya, should I say hi? Tapos hindi mo nagawa, parang ‘Oh my God, ba’t di ko nagawa?’ Lalo na po sa sitwasyon namin, artista kami. (…) Buti na lang, I’ve learned how to throw that pride away. Hindi naman po kami magkalaban, isa lang pong gusto namin (which) is to entertain, inspire these people.”
Despite admitting that he’s moved on from his previous relationships and has found closure, the actor is not ready to get into another relationship and fall in love again anytime soon. Gerald shared, “Nakakandado pa (ang aking puso). Hindi ho, Tito Boy, because I don’t want to be the same partner I was before. I want to be a better partner, a better person. Siguro it’s just going to take time. I’m learning from all the failure, yung mga mali na nagawa ko.”
On the segment Fast Talk, the actor was asked to describe in three words the next person he is to fall in love with. The actor said, “Beautiful, simple and maalaga.” When asked for his preference between lights on and off, the actor replied, “Lights on, kailangan kong makita.”
Lastly the actor was asked to choose between sex and chocolates. Gerald firmly said, “There’s no comparison: Sex.”
