Sleep with Me stars Lovi Poe and Janine Gutierrez candidly revealed their thoughts on same-sex relationships. In the press conference for the much-awaited queer female love story last August 4, the two actresses were asked if they were also willing to enter a same-sex relationship if given the chance.

“I think we all just love the same, when we love, we love. I think there’s no explanation behind it. Kasi pag may mahal tayo it’s something that we feel. It's not like we choose to, it just happens,” Lovi answered.


“You can never tell ‘di ba? You dont really know what happens ang hirap mag salita ng tapos. What matters is the kind of love. Is it the kind of love that makes you feel good, fulfilled and safe and I guess yun talaga yung magiging basehan mo if you go into a relationship,” Janine added.

While the two were shooting the series, they both admitted that there was this kilig factor in the air. For Janine, she has been a longtime fan of Lovi’s and has been repeatedly mentioning her in her previous interviews. 

“Nacoconscious na ako tumingin ng derecho sa mata,” Lovi revealed.

Lovi celebrated her birthday while they were filming so Janine decided to surprise her with merch from the actress’s favorite TV show. However, she admitted that she was having a hard time giving it to Lovi without being torpe.

“Nag birthday siya nung lock-in, I ordered her a gift na Friends merch because I know love niya yung Friends. Pero parang natotorpe ako na I don’t know how to give it to her like shocks, I’m shy,” she quipped.
