Jessy Mendiola said that she did not hesitate to say “yes” to JC de Vera’s offer to have a cameo role in the actor’s music video. “Masaya naman kasi may time na break kami sa taping at wala pa kaming scenes pa sabi niya ‘Jess kape tayo,’ tapos nong nag-kape kami parang naglatag siya ng proposal sabi niya ‘Jes kasi ganito ‘yung kanta ko, ganito ‘yung concept ng video ko, I would really be grateful kung pwede kang mag-cameo.’ Sabi ko ‘Oo naman since you’re my partner here in You’re My Home, why not naman sa music video di ba?’ It’s his first time to sing alam mo ‘yung it’s really nice and it’s a good feeling to be able to help out with that na parang uy first niya kasali ako don and tsaka kaibigan ko naman si JC,” she said in an interview at the HOOQ anniversary celebration.
Since there were rumors linking Jessy and JC, the actress was asked if there was a chance for a romance to blossom. She replied, “Right now kasi alam mo ‘yung sobrang unexpected na magka-partner kami at nagustuhan ng mga tao, kinikilig sila, nagkaroon na kami ng official fans club. Alam mo ‘yun hindi namin ini-expect na iba din oh luma-love team ka pa kuya? Tapos ‘yun pag-tinatanong kami ng ganyang questions we don’t really feel the need to say o mang-echos kasi nag-start kami as friends eh, nag-start kami as co-workers so right now we’re just taking it slow as co-workers and as friends.”
She added that it is actually their first time to team-up so that they just want to make the most out of what they have at the moment. “Kasi it’s parang it’s a first time to everything that is happening to us right now. First time lang namin magka-love team, first time lang naming magkaroon ng music video, first time lang niya magka-album, first time ko lang na katrabaho siya so ayaw ko lang din naman na bigyan ng kulay muna o bigyan ng meaning kasi masaya lang kami kung ano ang nangyayari ngayon so siguro nandoon lang muna kami sa moment na ‘yun na masaya siya at masaya ako,” she stated.
Jessy was also asked if whether or not she is open to playing the Darna role. She replied, “I am naman. Pagtinatanong naman ako about that role kasi lagi akong tinatanong eh, hindi nawawala ang question na ‘yun. Why not? Ang swerte swerte ko naman kung mapili ako di ba?” She also explained her bikini photos on Instagram which many assumed was a hint of her possibly playing the Darna role. “I post pictures of me in [a] swimsuit and pictures of me in well wearing that because I’m at the beach so di ba napaka-weird naman na mag t-shirt ako sa dagat di ba? Ayaw ko lang din naman na bigyan ng meaning o kulay ‘yung mga post na ‘yun kasi ‘yung naman talaga ang suot sa beach eh ‘yung mga pino-post ko na Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman is my favorite character ever kahit bago pa mangyari ‘yan.”
