During the press conference for their upcoming Regal Films movie My Rebound Girl, Alex Gonzaga said that she is not sure if onscreen partner Joseph Marco is courting her.
Talking to reporters, she said, “Hindi ko nga alam kung nanliligaw ‘yun, eh. Actually, hindi ko rin talaga alam.”
However, Alex shared that Joseph is consistently present in her life. “Si Joseph, never siyang nawala sa radar ko. Alam mo ‘yung kahit hindi kami magkatrabaho, nandiyan pa rin siya anytime and lagi pa rin siyang nangangamusta sa akin, lagi pa ring nagyayaya so parang, ‘yun lang, so far, consistent naman ‘yung existence niya sa buhay ko.
“Kasi ang maganda kay Joseph is very mysterious siya eh, hindi naman siya ‘yung guy na ‘out-there’ na parang ang dami mong alam sa past niya… With Joseph, he’s very mysterious. Alam niya ‘yung personal niyang buhay, iba sa showbiz so I think pwede naman,” she answered.
After entertaining some suitors who did not continue pursuing her, Alex, who earlier admitted that she became a rebound girl, said that what she now wants is someone who will accept her for who she is, imperfections and all.
“With Joseph, I think he’s very accepting and since siguro may friendship talaga kami, parang hindi namin kailangan magpretend sa isa’t isa,” she said.
Saying that she does not want to ask him if he is courting her, she added, “Minsan ‘pag nag-uusap kami ng gano’n, na-o-off ako kasi parang feeling ko may ginagawa kaming pelikula so ayokong haluan ng…”
When asked if Joseph is the type she would introduce to her parents, Alex, who earlier shared that Joseph gave her a gift—a bracelet which touched her heart—said, “Kilala naman nila… (As a boyfriend) Malalaman ko ‘yan kung manliligaw talaga siya sa ’kin.”
