Manila Mayor Isko Moreno remarked that Claudine Barretto did not become his girlfriend during his early years in show business. The mayor became a guest on Gandang Gabi Vice and answered various questions.
“With due respect with Claudine Barretto, hindi naman. We were partners in movies and we belonged in one film outfit which is Seiko Films,” he said in his interview on Gandang Gabi Vice.
When asked if he ever showed any hint of intention of courting her, the mayor said, “Hindi rin siguro. I just feel insecure, you were just starting, tapos medyo maayos naman ‘yung buhay nila.”
Did he ever hold her hand or kiss her? He replied, “Naka-holding hands ako… No walang kissing scene ‘yung pelikula.”
