Hunky actor Joseph Marco is officially back on dating scene as he confirmed with PUSH that he's currently in the “getting to know each other” stage with Miss Earth PH 2018 Celeste Cortessi. Rumors about the couple started last month when photos of Joseph and Celeste surfaced online. Joseph admitted to be dating the beauty queen for two months now.
"We're dating and we're not rushing, we're just getting to know. You know, madalas ko siyang maka-hang out," Joseph told PUSH yesterday, June 26.
It was in 2017 when Joseph last opened up about dating a non-showbiz girl.
Meanwhile, Joseph also shared his experience on being added to the cast of Los Bastardos since January 2019. According to him it became a motivation to be part of the teleserye where his co-actors have competitive fit bodies. "More than pressure, it's more of like motivation kasi alam ko na yung mga cast ng Los Bastardos, especially Jake (Cuenca) he's a good friend of mine. So parang mas namo-motivate.
"Nung sinabihan ako na papasok ako [sa cast], during Christmas day and New Year, nag work-out talaga ako. I needed to step up," he said.
In the same teleserye, the 30-year old actor also found a new leading lady in Ritz Azul.
"It was a surprise kasi hindi naman namin inexpect na ipe-pair talaga kami, it was parang experiment lang siya. People reacted to it, so we're just thankful na may pinupuntahan yung pinaghihirapan namin.
"Masarap ka-work si Ritz. Wala siyang arte at ang gaan niya katrabaho, tsaka kita mo sa kaniya yung pagiging professional niya. Kapag kailangan gawin yung scene, gagawin niya talaga," he added.
The Joseph and Ritz team up is commonly known as LoDi, which came from their names on the show as Lorenzo and Dianne.
Los Bastardos airs weekdays on Kapamilya Gold.
