Despite the constant yearning of their fans for her partnership with Coco Martin to evolve from reel to real, Yassi Pressman said that they don’t feel any pressure to make that happen.
“Wala pong pressure. Nagi-enjoy lang po kami dahil everyday po kami magkasama at ‘yung everyday po na ‘yun hangang ngayon hindi pa rin kami nagkakasawaan, ganon pa rin parang pamilya pa rin kami. Todo pa rin ang alaga niya sa lahat ng mga characters,” she said in an interview with the press at an FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano event.
Yassi also denied the rumors that they are an item. “Hindi po kami,” she said. When asked if Coco ever courted her, Yassi commented, “Hindi po.”
She stressed that she is single at the moment and no one is courting her. “Wala naman akong time. Bale po siguro Monday to Saturday Probinsyano, every Sunday Pambansang Third Wheel (her upcoming movie) or ASAP po minsan, wala na po talaga [time],” she said.
The actress also commented on reactions of fans who wanted her to be part of the movie Ang Panday where Coco is the lead star and the director.
“Natutuwa po ako dahil sa ‘yung mga supporters po namin ganon sila ka-supportive na gusto nila nandon ako pero at the same time natutuwa rin po ako at nai-excite kay Mariel (de Leon), super excited ako para sa kanya dahil first time niya at dahil grabe rin sila magbigay ng opportunities at sobra-sobrang blessings ang nangyayari kapag napagbibigyan ka ng pagkakataon,” she stated.
