MANILA – Although they haven’t reignited the romance between them just yet, Bea Alonzo admitted spending some time with former beau Gerald Anderson even after they already finished taping for their recent romantic film “How To Be Yours.”
“We are just really enjoying each other’s company… Lagi kaming nagkikita. Masaya kapag nagkikita kami. Hanggang doon muna, I guess. Kung magiging kami, hindi ko alam,” Alonzo said in an interview with ABS-CBN News.
Although the on-screen couple went out with friends, fans noticed how the two seemed exceptionally sweet – noting how they were romantically linked in 2010.
Seeing where this rekindled friendship may take them, Alonzo couldn’t deny how Anderson makes her see herself as a better person and pushes her to do things she never thought she could do.
“First time ko mag-hike in my life. Kasama ko friends niya, friends ko,” she shared about their recent hiking trip. “I guess, it’s safe to say na nilalabas niya ‘yung other side of me. It’s very interesting to know na there’s another side of me na I haven’t discovered before and he helps me discover that side.”
The 28-year-old actress also admired the kind of man Anderson came to be.
“He is so passionate in helping others. I have never been close to a person na ganoon ka-genuine and ka-passionate sa pagtulong sa iba ang pag-improve ng sarili niya for the country and the people,” she said.
“Sabi ko nga, alam mo pwede kang mag-politika. Pero ayaw niya talaga. Masasabi ko talaga sa kanya iyon kasi genuinely I think napakamatulungin niyang tao. Kapag nakikita ko iyon, parang nagugulat ako and you don’t always meet people like that. I didn’t see that before in him,” she added.
Alonzo and Anderson have both ended relationships with their previous partners Zanjoe Marudo and Maja Salvador prior to the shooting of their film.
