Paulo Angeles admits he’s open to dating older women: ‘Wala akong pake kung mas matanda or mas bata’

After finding out that he was going to be paired with Ina Raymundo in the upcoming iWant digital series Me & Mrs. Cruz, Paulo Angeles admitted it took a while for him to get over being intimidated by his older love interest on the show.

“First project ko ito na ma-pair sa mas matanda. Nung una nahihiya talaga ako. Nung look test hindi ako makalapit naninigas talaga ako. Every time na pinapag-pose kami, alam mo yung parang sinasabi nilang closer pero yung katawan ko parang hindi na makalapit sa sobrang naninigas na (laughs). Parang nahihiya na talaga ako. Mahiyain talaga akong tao. Pero nung nakapag-usap na kami ni Ms. Ina, nakapag-kuwentuhan and sobrang bait ni Ms. Ina. Wala akong masabi kundi lahat ng maganda nasa kanya. Na-relax ako and naging nag-ease na ako,” he shared during the Me & Mrs. Cruz mediacon. 

In the new installment to the Ampalaya Chronicles, Paulo plays the role of a delivery boy named Caloy who falls for one of his sexy clients named Mrs. Cruz. Off camera, Paulo said he received advice from his older co-star.

“Yung sa acting nag-ask ako sa kanya ng advice eh. Isang gabi bago kami mag-pack up kasi pressured ako sa mga iyakan. Sinabi niya sa akin, ‘Relax ka muna and huwag mo muna isipin yun kasi the more na iniisip mo mapapagod ka and pag dumating na yung iyakan baka hindi mo na lang siya magawa ng tama.’ So pag nag-relax ka hindi mo ma-o-overthink yung mga bagay bagay,” he recalled.

Compared to his previous projects which had him paired with co-stars of the same age, Paulo said he had to adjust his attitude when it came to Ina.

“Dati ka-love team ko sila Barbie (Imperial), sila Ysabel (Ortega), siyempre pag ganun mabiro ako eh. Parang ang dami kong sinasabi. Although barkada ko na sila bago pa mag-start yun. Parang mas makulit ako. Si mommy kasi nung mas bata ako, dati hindi ko napipigilan yung mga sinasabi ko. Eh minsan may nasasabi akong hindi maganda na joke so kinukurot niya ako. So tumatak sa akin yun kasi ganun ako pinalaki ni mommy na pag mas matanda dapat full of respect dapat. So mas less lang siguro yung jokes ko. Hindi kagaya ng kulit ko kapag same age. Nag-le-lessen lang ako sa jokes kasi ayoko madulas sa jokes na masasama kasi may tendency ako maging ganun, na hindi ako nag-iingat sa sinasabi ko,” he explained.

When asked if he would ever consider beign in a May-December kind of relationship, Paulo said he is open to the possibility of dating someone even with a wide age gap.

“Ako naniniwala ako na kada tao iba iba. Basta ang akin, na-in love kayo, na-in love kayo. Rerespetuhin ko opinyon nila. Kung ito yung gusto nilang age or gusto nila mas bata, buhay nila yun eh. Desisyon nila yun. So nirerespeto ko na lang. Pero yung akin, wala akong pake kung mas matanda or mas bata. Hindi naman yung underage, yung nasa tamang edad dapat,” he explained.
