John Lloyd Cruz on Angelica Panganiban: ‘Hindi ko naman siya iniiwasan’
040716-JohnLloydCruz2_PUSH.jpgJohn Lloyd Cruz revealed that he crossed paths with Angelica Panganiban in Hong Kong. This was after netizens took notice on social media that both of them were in Hong Kong at the same time. “If you are asking kung nagkita kami ni Angelica sa Hong Kong, nagkita kami, yeah. Napakaliit ng Hong Kong at hindi ko naman siya iniiwasan, di niya naman ako iniiwasan so I don’t think siguro nabibigyan lang ng parang kahulugan o malisya kasi nga given the history pero nagkita lang kami don kung paano ko rin nakita si kuya Aga si ate Charlene (Muhlach), si Ruffa (Gutierrez) din may picture pa nga kami eh. Nagkita-kita kami ni kuya Aga, ate Charlene at Ruffa sa isang gallery,” he said in an interview on the set of Just the 3 of Us. 

The actor stressed that they are actually friends. “Wala naman po tayong iniiwasan sa buhay ko. Life is too short para meron ka pang gustong iwasan na tao di ba? Especially pag may pinagsamahan ka’yo di ba? Wouldn’t you want na magkaroon kayo ng time to catch up?” he added.

The press also asked John Lloyd about the real reason behind their split but the actor remarked that he doesn’t want to go into details anymore. “Sana kaya naming sagutin ‘yung gustong malaman ng iba pero you know eh kasi parang it’s almost impossible kasi it’s too personal and minsan kahit na naiintindihan naman namin how public our lives are pero parang ‘yung ma-protektahan ‘yung natitirang kaunti sa amin, nahihirapan po kami to go into details pero we always try our best na ibigay sa public namin at sa inyo ‘yung kaya namin, ‘yung maibabahagi lang namin.”

He further stressed, “And we always try to be as honest as possible kasi after all napakaliit ng mundo natin di ba? Kahit sabihin mo pumunta ka ng Hong Kong, kahit Zimbabwe pa, merong makakakita at makakakita sa’yo and I don’t think I want to live my life that way na nagtatago ako, na meron akong gustong ilihim because I am a very practical guy. What you see is what you get parang kung meron akong mahal, I’m not gonna go shouting it to the whole world pero hindi rin po ako magtatago.” 

John Lloyd is set to star in a new movie titled Just the 3 of Us with Jennylyn Mercado. He said that he could somehow relate to the story of his character in the movie. “Maganda din ang timing ng journey na ‘to kasi I don’t think na magagawa ko ‘tong pelikula kung ibibigay mo sa akin five years ago or seven years ago so the timing maganda.  And I love the fact na ngayon ko siya ginagawa because somehow yes nakaka-relate ako sa pinagdadaanan ng character kasi as you all know I am not getting any younger. I’m 32 turning 33 this year so isa sa pinagdadaanan ko personally, ganon pala ‘yun eh, pagnalalapit ka sa ganong edad, ‘yung mga issues na tina-tackle dito hindi nalalayo sa personal na buhay. I think it’s gonna be a great journey kahit sobrang challenging. It’s very familiar,” he stated.
