On Tonight with Boy Abunda, off-screen friends Inigo Pascual and Miles Ocampo talked about how friendship is a good foundation of a great relationship.
The hot new love team first met on the set of Mangarap Ka, Miles’s first acting stint where Inigo’s dad Piolo Pascual was the lead actor. The two have remained friends ever since then. Both agreed, when asked, that friends can make for the best lovers.
“I mean, that’s where it starts,” Inigo acknowledged. “I think kailangan in a relationship, you have to start as best friends to really know each other. There’s got to be a good foundation, at saka kailangan kilala niyo ang isa’t isa before you jump into something even deeper.”
Miles also agreed and said, “Opo naman Tito Boy, naniniwala naman ako doon na ang love nagsisimula yan sa friendship. Siyempre ‘pag magkaibigan kayo kinikilala niyo po ang isa’t isa tapos pag nagustuhan mo yun, at ‘pag love mo ang isang tao, kahit ano naman tatanggapin mo sa kanya.”
When asked if they’re currently at the stage where in they’re getting to know each other, Miles was quick to answer, “Yes, Tito Boy.”
Although already 18, both actors are not yet ready to be in a relationship, Miles said, “Si mama naman po kahit po mayroon, okay naman po sa kanya, pero ako po yung may ayaw pa din po talaga.” While in the case of Inigo, “Right now we just want to focus on working and studying. We’re both studying po; I don’t think we’d want to jump into something like that.”
During the show’s highly talked about segment Fast Talk, the closeness of the actors were very palpable, when Miles was asked to choose between Piolo and Inigo, she chose the latter. When Inigo was asked who the funniest person he knows was, he answered, “Miles.” When Miles was asked who the wisest person she knows is, she chose, “Inigo.”
Inigo was then asked who is the person he sees every day and yet again, he answered, “Miles.” Again, he answered her name when asked, “sexiest actress in the Philippines?” On the other hand when she was asked who the sexiest actor was for her in the Philippines, she answered, “John Lloyd Cruz.” After which, she turned to Inigo and chided him, “Sorry, nag-expect ka ba?”
When asked if Miles was girlfriend material, the actor said, “yes, definitely.”
The actress was then asked, “Maliban sa pamilya, sino ang gusto mong sabihan ng ‘And I Love You So?’” To this the actress turned to the audience and said, “Everybody, my friends, for the love, thank you so much, and I love you so.”
This prompted the host to say, “Isa lang. Kung mayroon kang sasabihan, maliban sa your friends and family ng ‘And I Love You So,’ sino ito?”
Miles then turned to Inigo and uttered, “And I Love You So.”
