MANILA – Amidst a flurry of rumours that he is romantically linked with teen star Julia Barretto, actor-dancer Rayver Cruz said that he and Barretto are just good friends.

“Walang real score. Kapag napag-uusapan namin ni Julia, natatawa lang kami kasi super close ako sa family niya. After ng London Barrio Fiesta naging close ako sa kanya at sa mama (Marjorie) niya. Tapos pagbalik namin ay naging close ako sa buong family niya,” Cruz told reporters during a press conference for the successful TV series, “Two Wives.” .

“Natutuwa ako na nagkaroon ako ng second family kasama sila. Hindi ko in-expect ‘yon kasi mga Barrettos, pero sobrang saya nila kasama. Natatawa na lang kami kasi parang kailan lang may nag-tweet sa akin ‘dating daw’ eh ‘yung picture na ‘yun kinunan kaming dalawa lang pero kasama namin ‘yung buong family,” the actor added.

Cruz admitted to finding Barretto “very attractive”, but called on the public to stop haranguing the young actress about the matter.

“I find her very attractive. Sinasabi ko naman sa kanya sa harapan niya, sino ba namang tao ang hindi magkakagusto sa kanya magkaka-crush pero at this point in time parang ang dami pa niyang pwedeng gawin,” he said.

“Sa ngayon tigilan niyo na si Julia. Hindi kami exclusively dating. Parang nakakatawa lang kasi sobrang close ako sa kanila, nakakahiya naman sa kanila huwag na nating ipilit,” Cruz appealed.
