MANILA – Veteran actor and comedian Vic Sotto believes that the age gap between him and girlfriend Pauleen Luna helps in keeping their relationship strong.
“There’s no problem with our age difference. Age is just a number,” said Sotto during a taped interview with Cinema News on Friday.
He added, “As a matter of fact, I think it’s what makes our relationship work. Pauleen may be young, but she thinks like an adult, while I think like a kid sometimes. So we meet halfway.”
The age difference between them is 35 years. Sotto is 60, while Luna is 25.
Earlier, Sotto already expressed that he feels that his relationship with Luna is not ideal.
“You have a lot to go through in dealing with me. Because if you deal with me, you deal with all these people,” he said to his girlfriend during his 60th birthday celebration.
When asked about whether he plans to propose to Luna, he said that he does not want to be labelled as “copycat” given the number of celebrity engagements happening this year.
“When you least expect it, that’s the time when you should expect,” said Soto.
The “Eat Bulaga” main host is currently working on “My Big Bossing’s Adventures,” an entry in this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival.
