MANILA, Philippines—At the opening of his new venture, Sam Milby admitted that he is now courting Kapamilya actress Jessy Mendiola.

The hunk-actor didn’t escape the interrogation of the press when asked who he will bring in his new restaurant—and the name he first mentioned was indeed a surprise—Jessy!

Milby and Mendiola worked together in an episode of the drama anthology series, “Maalaala Mo Kaya”.

The 29-year-old actor shares that he likes the beauty and simplicity of Jessy.

Milby added, “I think a lot of times she’s misunderstood too. Masyado siyang bata ( She’s so young) but for me she’s mature for her age. I can’t say that I know her that well but the times that I’ve hung out with her have been fun.”

The 20-year-old actress, in a statement sent to “The Buzz” said she’s not closing her doors to Sam, “We go out and hang. Nothing super serious since alam niya priority ko ang career ko.” (he knows that my career is my priority).

Jessy was previously linked to actor Matteo Guidicelli, and was in a brief relationship with actor JM De Guzman. Her biggest break came in 2010, when she starred in the ABS-CBN afternoon show “Sabel”.
