JC de Vera, Jessy Mendiola’s latest onscreen partner, bluntly said that he was “a little bit surprised” about news linking his former You’re My Home co-star to Luis Manzano.
The hunky actor immediately added that he does not mind the pairing.
“Kung magiging happy siya (Mendiola) sa kung ano man ang decisions niya, ako pa 'yung magiging sobrang saya basta maging masaya siya,” JC said in an interview during YES! 100 Most Beautiful Stars event.
Jessy and Luis both admitted in separate interviews that they are indeed hanging out.
“Hindi ko alam 'yung story [nila ni Luis], hindi ko rin inaalam. Very positive thinker ako. Kapag anything may negative, that’s the time na magtatanong ako ng personal stuff kay Jessy,” he explained.
JC is confident that nothing would change between them even if his leading lady is now hanging out with someone. According to him, as a love team, they would still continue delivering what is expected of them, especially now that they are working on their first banner movie together.
“Work will go on. Ako, basta maayos ang trabaho, maayos ang relationship with everyone pagdating sa work, wala akong problema talaga,” he said.
Did he not even think of courting the number 1 sexiest woman in the country today?
“That’s one thing na ina-avoid ko. Kapag umabot sa point na 'yun, masisira 'yung samahan naming dalawa. 'Yun ang nakikita natin sa halos lahat ng celebrities and artists na nagwo-work together,” he explained.
The Banana Sundae cast member cited that his tight schedule is something that somehow gets in the way of his love life.
“At some point kasi, hindi na kami magkasama na sa work, mayroon na kaming separate life. For me, to enter in a relationship na parehong busy 'yung dalawa, para sa akin, ang hirap lang. Mas lalong mahirap 'yung if totally nawala. 'Yung naging kayo, tapos nawala,” he ended.
