During the pocket press conference for Dolce Amore’s lead stars Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano last Thursday, April 21, Liza commented on the allegation that she put Enrique in the “best friend zone.”
“It’s not friend-zoning someone, it’s claiming someone to be your best friend,” she said, adding that it does not mean it ends there. Saying that Enrique is really the closest to her among her friends, Liza added that she confides in him the most.
Her statement was also echoed in a series of tweets she posted on her Twitter account last April 9.
Meanwhile, vocal about his romantic feelings towards Liza and his respect for her family, Enrique was asked about the real status of their relationship. “May relasyon pero hindi nga gano’n (magboyfriend-girlfriend) pero alam mo, alam mong sa amin, parang gano’n na rin eh,” he answered.
Later, Liza revealed her birthday present for Enrique who celebrated his 24th birthday last March 30. Having initially said none, Liza clarified, “Wala talaga akong gift sa kanya, parating lang mamaya. Meron akong gift sa kanya. Actually, parating talaga mamaya. No (it’s not a surprise), alam na niya. It’s called a flyboard. We use it at the beach. Para siyang it lifts you up in the air. Parang Iron Man.”
When asked for Enrique’s reaction to Liza’s gift, he said, “Siyempre masaya kasi lalo na tapos na ‘yung beach house ko doon sa Anilao so syempre lagi kaming nandoon at saka ‘yung family niya.” Liza even joked, “Ako po ‘yung makikinabang ‘dun…” Enrique also added that he feels blessed and lucky.
