With so many supposed celebrity scandal photos circulating online, some personalities have already gotten used to being accused of taking indecent shots. But Jerome Ponce chooses to take all the accusations in stride. “Baka ako yun (laughs). Una sa lahat, yan ang maipagmalaki ko sa mga tao na parang ever since naman laging may nagsasabi sa akin na may lumabas daw na ganito, ganyan. Iniisip ko, ‘Hawak ko ba phone ko?’ May hawak ba ako habang nag-si-C.R ako?’ Parang wala. So confident ako and alam ko sa sarili ko na hindi ako ma-ganun. Sure na sure ako (hindi ako yun. Kung akin yun eh di sige, wala eh. Pinipilit. Eh di akin na lang. Hindi ko ikaka-proud. Hindi talaga. May nagsabi na rin sa akin niyan sa ball, mga ganyan. Actually almost yearly may mga ganyan eh,” he said.

The talented actor says he is confident about his innocence but he will not make a big effort to clear his name just to make people believe his side. “Sigurado naman ako. Phone ko nga wala bakit magkakaroon pa sa internet. Anyway hindi ako ganung klaseng tao. Siguro kung may umasa na lang yun, sige sa inyo na, enjoy it di ba? (laughs). Isipin niyo na lang ako talaga yun di happy na kayo kung ganun,” he said.

After playing his first gay role to rave reviews in Ang Henerasyong Sumuko Sa Love, Jerome said he has never experienced being harassed by the same sex even though he has sometimes been misunderstood by them. “I have a lot of friends na gays. Minsan nagtatanong sila, nagtataka na. Kasalanan ko naman baka na-mi-misinterpret na parang nagbibigay ako ng (motibo) pero sabi ko, ‘Uy, ano ka ba huwag ganyan. Inom lang tayo dito.’ Mga ganun. Friends lang. Tropa lang. And ako kasi talaga, ayokong sumama loob or ma-feel nila na nababastos sila. Gusto ko respectful ka lang. Tropa ko kasi. Hindi ko kaya mabuhay sa mundo kapag walang gay friends kasi masaya. Masaya ang set, masaya yung buhay, masaya yung kuwento nila sa buhay kapag yung napagdaanan nila na-inspire ako. So I respect them,” he explained.

Happy with his relationship with athlete Mika Reyes, Jerome said that when he falls in love, he is able to push his limits. “Crazy na siguro enough yung alam kong kahit masisira ako nilang isang public figure, bilang tao na may karapatan magsalita, pero ang nangyari mawalan ka na ng pride. Yun yung crazy para sa akin,” he shared.
