Bela Padilla on being linked to Zanjoe Marudo: ‘Ayoko naman isara yung pinto ko’


032917-BelaPadilla_PUSH.jpgIt’s been three months since her breakup with long time boyfriend Neil Arce and Bela Padilla admits she is happy with the growing chemistry she has onscreen with her My Dear Heart co-star Zanjoe Marudo. “Okay lang naman. Wala namang anything eh (laughs). Wala pa naman (ligaw). Normal naman kami. Okay naman. Mabait si Z. Kasi ayoko naman isara yung pinto ko pero kasi right now parang sobrang araw-araw kami nag-te-taping, baka kasi ganun lang dahil araw-araw ko siyang nakikita. So gusto ko makita yung mga situation or yung bagay bagay pag hindi na siguro kami magkatrabaho. Baka yun kasi magkasama kami everyday. We’ll find out after the show (laughs),” she shared during her launch as the new KB Skin Whitening endorser held last March 28 in Taguig city.

Bela said she is still getting to know Zanjoe on and off cam. “Hindi ko kasi siya kilala dati kaya hindi ko alam kung paano siya sa ibang tao. Baka naman same lang din. Okay naman siya, mabait. Siguro dahil ako lang din naman babae sa show, hindi ko nakikita kung pano yung pakikitungo niya sa ibang ka-age din namin. Kasi lahat senior sa amin, so siyempre lahat kami may respecto kina tita Connie (Reyes), kina tita Rio (Locsin) at sila Tsong (Joey Marquez). Kundi mas matanda sa amin sobrang bata naman sila Heart. Tapos si Ria (Atayde) kakapasok lang ulit so hindi ko nakikita eh kung paano ba siya sa ibang tao,” she admitted.

Even though they have only worked with each other in My Dear Heart, Bela said she is happy she shares a natural chemistry with Zanjoe. “Hindi kami lumalabas. Hindi talaga. Kunwari after taping lang magyayaya kami lahat sila Tsong sila Tita magkakasama kami kakain sa labas. Hindi pa kami lumalabas na kaming dalawa lang. I’m lucky kasi everyone was saying on set, even our bosses were congratulating us, after na our chemistry came out so real so hindi ako nahirapan kasi nakita ko na siya rin um-effort siya to make the scene work,” she said. Although some members of the media have commented on her likeness to Zanjoe’s ex-girlfriend Bea Alonzo, Bela said she is not bothered by the comparison. “Sabi ni Zanjoe hindi naman kami magkamukha. Ewan ko,” she added.

The new KB Skin Whitening endorser said she would definitely give Zanjoe a chance if he ever decided to ask her out on a date. “I’m single now, yun na lang yung sasabihin ko (laughs). Puwede. I mean I’m not closing my doors to anyone, not just Zanjoe. Honestly hindi ko kasi tinatanong si Z. Ayoko siyang ma-pressure din baka mabasa pa niya ito sabihin niya pinu-push ko. Pero alam niyo yun, ayoko kasing may maisip siya na ako yung nag-initiate or ako yung may gusto or whatever. Ang tagal niyo na rin akong kilala. Sobrang go with the flow lang ako. Napaka-chill kong tao,” she explained.

Coming from a four-year relationship, Bela admitted dating in showbiz is something unfamiliar to her. “Parang ang weird kasi never pa ako nag-date ng katrabaho so parang hindi ko alam if that’s a good idea. Eh kasi boyfriend ko si Neil (Arce) ng four years so parang if ever ngayon lang naman ako naging single na parang may mga trabaho ako na tuloy-tuloy. Hindi ko alam eh. Baka makaapekto sa trabaho,” she admitted.
