With a hit daytime soap, an upcoming Star Cinema movie, and lots of showbiz commitments, Gerald Anderson admitted he can’t complain about having a packed schedule. “Things are great. After nito pupunta na ako Subic kasi may triathlon bukas ng umaga and I came from a shoot and Showtime and then here and then Subic na. But you know, sabi nila busy is good so I wouldn’t have it any other way,” he said during the Skechers Move In Style Fashion Show held last June 3 in Ortigas.
Gerald said that he has fully embraced the athlete lifestyle after getting into triathlon training last year. “It’s a lifestyle talaga. Yung hinahanap mo talaga. Hindi kumpleto araw mo pag hindi ka nakapag-workout or nag-training so I’m just happy na nasa ganung stage ako ng buhay ko. It just brings happiness alam mo yun? Lahat kami pati si Jake (Cuenca), si Kim (Chiu) ganun din eh. We’re just blessed to have something like this kasi lalo lang kaming na-mo-motivate,” he explained.
The Skechers celebrity ambassador also shared why he can really relate to his latest movie role in Can We Still Be with Friends because he tries to keep the friendship with his ex-girlfriends. “It depends kung anong klaseng friend eh. Sa akin as long as yung respeto nandun, the way you respected her nung kayo pa and you still respect her the same way kahit hindi kayo and you respect yung mga magagandang memories niyo then I couldn’t ask for anything more. Like I said, the most important thing is yung respecto because siyempre naging partner mo siya in life eh. Time heals a lot,” he explained.
With his love life going strong with Bea Alonzo, Gerald was happy to share they are doing great. “Mahilig din siya tumakbo at ang lakas niya tumakbo. Okay naman kami. Masaya. Siyempre very busy sa mga schedules but we always try to find time. Chill chill kami eh. Sobrang okay kami sa sitwasyon namin. We’re happy and as long as nandun yung respeto. Hindi naman kami nagmamadali. Ako hindi ako nagmamadali. You guys have seen what I’ve been through so hindi naman ako nag-ja-jump into something. As long as nirerespeto ko siya, nirerespeto ko yung oras na binibigay din niya sa akin,” he explained.
