With the upcoming September 19 playdate of her newest romantic drama film Nakalimutan Ko Nang Kalimutan Ka, Alex Gonzaga said she had already been part of the movie since the conceptualization stage. “Siguro yung the whole process na ginagawa namin yung pelikula kasi nakakatrabaho ko is si Fifth (Solomon) and alam ko na ito talaga dati pa lang nung nag-uusap pa lang kami, nag-ko-conceptualize pa lang kami sa dining table sa Taytay, nandun na ako at naririnig ko na,” she shared during the movie presscon held last September 7 in Quezon City.
 
During the event, Alex candidly shared that when she is dating someone, she is the type to force things to work out no matter what. “Nakalimutan ko sila pero hindi ko nakalimutan lahat ng katangahan ko. Kasi alam niyo pag nakikipag-date ako, simula pa lang may bumubulong na sa akin, ‘Hindi yan. Hindi yan talaga para sa ‘yo.’ So lagi akong nagda-doubt. Lagi kong kino-convince yung sarili ko na hindi totoo yung bumubulong sa akin. Nakikita ko na lang na we’re drifting apart or parang hindi talaga mag-wo-work. Pinipilit ko. Gumagawa ako ng mga ways na magmumukha na talaga akong tanga just to prove to myself na hindi, ito talaga. Tama ito para sa akin. But it turns out, lagi namang tama na hindi talaga sila meant for me,” she said. 
 
The talented actress also shared how she usually deals with being heartbroken. “Ako kasi totodohin ko muna yung pagiging tanga, yung magmumukha na talaga akong putik. Tinotodo ko talaga yung pagiging tanga kasi kunwari ka-text mo na, todohin mo na tawagan mo na. Hanggang laylay na talaga, sagad na talaga sa buto sa pagiging tanga. Tapos pag sobra na akong tanga, na wala na akong magagawa kundi nasa ibaba na ako, kailangan mo na siyempre umangat di ba? So yun yung aking proseso lagi. Itotodo ko muna ng sobra, gagawin ko lahat na magmummukha akong tanga. After nun, wala na kasi akong mabibigay pa or parang wala ng ibababa pa yung gagawin ko,” she explained.
 
Despite prodding from the local press for her to reveal which exes she was talking about, Alex clarified that she was not pertaining to Kean Cipriano whom she was paired with in the series Inday Bote three years ago. “Sa lahat ng akong mga ginawang ganito, wala pong showbiz. Maniwala kayo’t hindi. Itong mga it lahat non-showbiz. Tatlo, dalawa dun Chinese. Kung meron kayong iniisip, kung iniisip niyo si Kean (Cipriano) hindi po. Ang daming nagsasabi kung part siya ng libro, hindi po talaga. Kasi yung sa amin it’s just friendship na parang nag-feeling lang kami na may something pero alam namin na wala talaga. So we’re both on the same page. We knew na wala kaming sinasaktan sa isa’t isa. So it was just parang a moment nung nagkatrabaho kami. But after the work it’s done,” she said.
