Piolo then shared with ABS-CBN News last Sunday, July 31 that he was actually surprised with the Optimum Star’s gesture.
“Nag-text ako sa kanya, nag-thank you ako kasi kahit hindi kami nagkikita, sabi niya ‘Hindi lang ikaw, pati na rin si Iñigo. I’m here to look out for you guys.’ Ang sarap ng ganung pakiramdam na may magandang relationship ka sa mga kaibigan mo,” he said.
“Nakakatawa, sabi ko, ‘Clau, you haven’t changed.’ Back in the day, ganun na si Clau. Kapag may mga nang-aasar, siya talaga yung lumalaban, siya talaga yung humaharap,” he added.
Claudine and Piolo have worked on various projects over the years, including award-winning film Milan in 2004.
