Julia Montes reacts to rumor she is Coco Martin’s girlfriend: ‘Siya na lang yung tanungin niyo’
042316-juliam_main.jpgAs her hit afternoon soap Doble Kara enters its second season next month, Julia Montes shared a big announcement for the show’s extension last April 22 during their thanksgiving press conference inside ABS-CBN. 

“Thank you po. Sa eight months naramdaman ko yung journey ng kambal and sa suporta ng mga tao. Ang sorpresa namin ay marami pa kayong dapat abangan sa bagong yugto ng buhay ng kambal. Ang may anak na sila,” she said. 

During the presscon, the 21-year-old actress was asked about her personal life which focused on her rumored relationship with Ang Probinsyano star Coco Martin. 

"Siguro siyempre alam ko rin kasi dapat muna mag-focus and relax, take it slow and go with the flow, ganyan. Yung commmunication namin hindi naman naputol. Iba lang yung communication namin ngayon. May usapan naman kami. Nag-uusap naman kami. Siya na lang ang anuhin niyo sa mga tanong niyo. Siya na lang tanungin niyo. Hindi naman yung babae ang dapat na sasagot. Saka busy nga po ako,” she admitted. 

When asked why she was having a hard time denying they were together, Julia shyly answered, "Kaya nga po ako yumuyuko sa inyo (laughs)."

Having met Coco when she was just 17 years old, Julia considers him one of her closest confidantes in showbiz. 

"Siguro iba talaga yung nag-start yung friendship namin yung foundation talaga strong and until now I can say kung sino yung mapapagkatiwalaan ko and relaxed and kumportable ako, siya talaga. Kasi talagang sa kanya ako relaxed and kilala ko kasi yung buong Coco Martin or Rodel Naciancano na talagang hindi showbiz, lalaki, Pilipinong lalaki. Lahat siguro ng blessing na work sa akin, kung saan ako nag-start ng mature role, siya na talaga nakasama ko kaya siya rin talaga yung isa sa tumulong sa akin na maging kung ano itong naibibigay ko ngayon,” she explained. 

Julia also revealed she has learned a lot on and off the set from Coco. 

“Ang dami. Mapa-personal o mapa-sa work. Lahat halos siguro and napakabuti kasi niyang tao. Alam ko nasabi ko na ito dati na wala siyang masamang tinapay. Ang character niya I can say kahit na sinong babae wala kang masasabing masama about kay Coco,” she shared. 

Julia also recalled one important life advice from him. "Siguro pag gagawa ka ng desisyon dapat hindi mo ire-regret and family first huwag mong kakalimutan yun kasi yun yung talagang ginagawa ko kasi lahat naman talaga ito ginagawa ko for my family.  At saka mahalin mo yung trabaho mo para mahalin ka rin niya pabalik,” she added. 

With new Kapamilya actress Ritz Azul admitting that she was had a crush on Coco, Julia said she is not surprised. 

"Guwapo naman talaga si Coco and talented so for sure lahat ng halos ng babae sino ba namang hindi magkaka-crush kay Coco so yun,” she commented. 

Another reason why rumors have been persistent about her and Coco is because Julia has not been linked to her other leading men. 

"Focused kasi talaga ako sa work. Kasi yung character ko rin talaga in real life parang one of the boys so ayaw ko yung magpo-promo para lang sa show or whatever. Parang nakaanuhan ko na yung magustuhan niyo yung tandem namin sa work kung paano kami hindi yung pag off-cam ganun,” she said. 

The Fil-German beauty remarked she has actually learned to appreciate Coco more now that they have not worked together in a project for some time. 

"Siguro mas na-appreciate ko kasi kahit gaano ka-busy nung tao lalong lalo n akung ano yung estado niya ngayon, prangkahang usapan andun na siya as Coco Martin hindi pa rin naman naputol (yung connection namin),” she said. 

Will she ever admit when they are truly in a relatonship? Julia responded with, "Lahat naman ng bagay hindi naman dapat minamadali. In time, in time."
