It was in 2016 when Jane Oineza first admitted she was seeing Arjo Atayde. But any chance of a relationship fizzled out when they both admitted they were too committed to their busy schedules and careers. Jane clarified they were never a couple. “Hindi naman umabot sa ganun. Wala pong ganun. Busy kasi pareho so hindi umabot sa ganun. Wala po akong issue sa kanya. Sa scheduling din, parang naudlot na hindi na natuloy,” she said.
The Finding You actress said she has no issues with Arjo and is even willing to work with him onscreen if they were ever offered a good script. “Oo naman. Wala naman sa akin. Magaling siyang actor at it would be interesting kung ano ang kalalabasan kung magkakaroon kaming project together,” she admitted.
Jane said she was also happy with the work done by her current leading man Jerome Ponce in their first film together Finding You. “Proud ako kay Jerome nag-mature siya as an actor at nakita ko yun sa movie na ito. Thank you kung ganun yung pakiramdam niya. Pero team player tayo dito, bigayan. Dapat parehong makikita yung characters namin, wala naman dapat na lamunang nangyayari (laughs). Nag-mature siya as an actor and nakita ko binigay niya talaga yung all niya sa pelikulng ito,” she shared.
As for their other co-star Barbie Imperial, the talented actress admitted it was actually her who first thought of her friend as a possible co-star. “Kasi magkasama kami sa Christmas Special ng ABS-CBN and naghahanap ng mga gaganap na ex ni Jerome dito. Kasi nga babalikan niya yung mga relationships niya. So ang daming girls na kailangan. Sabi ko si Barbie baka puwede tapos tinanong ko din siya. Close kami. And then ayun pinaalam na namin sa Star Magic. Sila na yung nag-usap usap. And masaya ako na natuloy and heto na nakasama na namin si Barbie sa pelikula. Though wala kaming eksena dito masyado pero napanuod ko naman and ang cute din nila ni Ponce,” she explained.
Even though they both have their share of memorable scenes in the Regal Films romance, Jane said there were no issues with billing with Barbie. “Sa akin wala namang issue, Wala rin naman akong naramdaman galing kay Barbie na may issue. Para sa akin lahat kami dito importante ang role. Hindi mabubuo ang pelikula kung wala ang each and everyone sa buong cast,” she added.
