John Lloyd Cruz was more than forthcoming about how special his onscreen partner Sarah Geronimo is for him.
The tandem is finally reuniting in the big screen through Finally Found Someone four years since their last project It Takes A Man and a Woman.
Even though Sarah, during their movie’s grand media conference, expressed a desire to do other kinds of films, they nevertheless gave a premium to their supporter’s emotions about having a reunion project.
“Di ba, hangga't mayroon tayong maise-share, hangga't mayroon tayong mapapaligaya, mayroon tayong tamang motivation to do a film like this, bakit hindi? I mean, doon naman nagsimula lahat, kaya we try to keep it real, we try to keep it sincere sa ibinibigay namin,” said John Lloyd.
But what shocked the press was when John Lloyd added: "Hangga't nandoon, hangga't mayroon kaming nararamdaman, bakit hindi?"
What the Home Sweetie Home said got the press asking as to whether or not his feelings have gone beyond what is expected of him as a colleague.
“Hanggang Mindanao Ave. Hindi umabot ng Congressional?” he joked.
After turning serious, John Lloyd answered the questions and said, ““Hindi, we had this little story about timing. Laging timing is not our friend really, 'no?”
According to him, timing has been an issue with them ever since they started their first movie A Very Special Love back in 2008.
When dared to reveal if he has “feelings” for the Pop Star Royalty until now, John Lloyd said, “I wonder kung mawawala yun. Ano ba, life is short.”
At the moment, Sarah is known for being in a relationship with Matteo Guidicelli. While John Lloyd is rumored to have rekindled the fire with his former girlfriend Angelica Panganiban.
Given that “feeling,” John Lloyd was pressed to answer as to whether or not he thinks that Sarah was the one that got away.
“Ayokong mawala eh. Hindi ako umabot sa point na nasabi ko yun. Or siguro ayokong sabihin. Hindi pa. Hindi ko pa nasasabi,” he said.
Sarah quipped, “Never naman akong nawala.”
Without seemingly adding any malice to what the Box Office actor professed, Sarah explained the reason why there are still fans who can’t seem to get enough of their tandem.
“Kasi, kami po ni Lloydie, base sa obserbasyon ko, iba yung koneksiyon namin. Basta kakaiba. Sabi nga niya, it's a gift. This chemistry is a gift para sa mga tao siguro, hindi lang para sa amin. We are talagang blessed na binigyan kami ng ganitong tandem o connection na nakapagbibigay ng ganitong happiness,” she said.
The “Misteryo” singer admitted that she too is in awe as to how that “connection” came about.
"Kung anuman 'yon, thank you, Lord. And thank you sa mga naniniwala sa tandem namin hanggang ngayon,” she ended.
Catch Sarah and John Lloyd’s big screen reunion in the film Finally Found Someone by Direk Ted Boborol. The film comes out in theaters starting July 26.
