John Lloyd Cruz says he's not meddling with 'Imortal' co-star Angel Locsin's private life is a sign of respect.
John Lloyd Cruz was a bit reserved when asked about the recent issue concerning his leading lady Angel Locsin. There have been claims that Phil Younghusband of the Philippine Football team Azkals, supposedly had a bet with his teammates if he could get Angel to go out on a date with him. This is after the football star'rsquo;s controversial Twitter invitation to the actress for a Valentine date, which the actress amicably turned down via Twitter also.
"Hindi ko po alam 'lsquo;yun. It'rsquo;s something na wala akong knowledge about. Mahirap mag-comment about it," John Lloyd said during the Greenwich event held at SM North EDSA last February 22, Tuesday. "Personal na bagay 'lsquo;yan, hindi ko alam what'rsquo;s the story behind that story. Hindi ko alam kung ano ba talaga sila ng taong involved (Phil)."
He continued that he does not want to meddle with the actress'rsquo;s personal life. "Ang pinakamagagawa ko lang bilang katrabaho lang ni Angel'mdash;maaaring kaibigan'mdash;yung respeto na ibibigay mo sa kanila sa ganyang mga pagkakataon, sa ganyang bagay. Dumistansya ka na kasi personal na 'lsquo;yan, eh."
John Lloyd is also thankful to all the viewers of Imortal which continues to get high ratings now that they are in their second season. The actor, who plays Mateo in the teleserye, is sporting a different look now that he has turned into a vampire. "We'rsquo;re trying to achieve a different look for the character. You can watch out for mga bagong looks, intense na eksena, conflicts, mga bagong characters na darating," he assured.
He also revealed that Toni Gonzaga, who was his leading lady in My Amnesia Girl, is slated to be his partner again in his next movie with the Kanto Boys. "Pero nasa scripting pa rin. Kung kelan magsu-shoot, hindi ko pa alam. Pero 'lsquo;yun ang nakaplano, after Imortal, Kanto Boys movie with Toni."
While Toni will be his leading lady the second time in a row, Lloydy explained that all his leading ladies have a special place in his heart. "Lagi naman siyempre iba-iba 'lsquo;yung'hellip; iba si Angel iba si Bea (Alonzo), iba si Sarah Geronimo, iba si Toni. Minsan 'lsquo;pag nasa sa set ka you have to come across the scene that you have to do minsan naiisip mo 'lsquo;yung dati mong kapareha."
Lloydy also added that he was told by Star Cinema that he will make a movie with Sarah later on, but there are no definite plans yet.
