MANILA – In an interview on ”Gandang Gabi Vice” aired on Sunday, actor Marvin Agustin admitted that he had “real feelings” for former onscreen love interest, Jolina Magdangal; and vice-versa.
After an exchange of banter, host Vice Ganda asked Agustin if he had real feelings for Magdangal, during the days of their onscreen romantic relationship.
Agustin readily replied, “Of course, yes! Hindi man naging tayo pero totoo yung naramdaman ko sa ‘yo (Of course, yes! We may not have ended up together but what I felt for you was real.);” he said in reference to Magdangal.
Before Vice Ganda prompted the admission from Agustin, Magdangal revealed that there was a time that she told the actor about her feelings, but received a less-than-romantic response.
”Kasi feeling ko noong mga bata pa kami, kapag magjowa kayo nag-a-‘I love you’-han kayo. E ako lang ang nag-a-‘I love you! (Because I felt during those days when we were young, that when you are in a romantic relationship, you exchange ‘I-love-yous’ But I was the only one who said ‘I love you!’),” Magdangal said.’
”Sabi ko [kay Marvin], ‘I love you, babe!’ Heto ang sabi niya–nag-babe naman siya–‘Thank you, babe! (I said, [to Marvin], ‘I love you, babe!’ He replied this way – although he did say babe – ‘Thank you, babe!’),” she added.
Agustin apologized, saying that he did not remember that particular incident, but that he showed his feelings for the singer-actress in other ways.
”Una sa lahat, sorry pero di ko natatandaan ‘yon. Ikaw kasi marami kang mga [pasaring]. Pero teka lang, ako rin naman, ang dami ko rin namang pinaramdam sa ‘yo (Firstly, I am sorry, I don’t remember that incident. You always had a lot of [insinuations]. But wait, I, too, sent you a lot of feelers.),” said Agustin.’
“Kung hindi ako nag-‘I love you’ sa ‘yo, hindi mo ba naramdaman ‘ang pagmamahal ko sa ‘yo? (If I did not say ‘I love you’ to you, did you not feel my love, anyway?),” he added.
To this, Magdangal said to Vice Ganda: ”In fairness, maalaga si Marvin (In fairness [To be fair], Marvin was caring towards me.)”
