Tuesday, March 20, 2012
KAPAMILYA actress Jessie Mendiola clarified she's not dating "Budoy" co-star Enrique Gil.
In a recent interview, Jessie revealed that she and Enrique are good friends even before they started working in showbiz.
"Close na talaga kami bago pa kami ma-launch (sa Star Magic)."
Enrique was part of Star Magic Batch 16 while Jessie was launched ahead of the actor as she was part of the ABS-CBN's talent arm's batch 15.
Jessie also confirmed that Enrique once courted her, but they were too young during that time.
She said though the romance didn't flourish between them, they remained close friends in and out of the showbiz world.
"Before nanligaw siya nung mga bata pa kami. I guess puppy love lang yun, panliligaw lang yun na pa-sweet. Right now naging close na lang kami ni enrique kasi para ko siyang brother."
Meanwhile, Jessie also denied reports that she dated Gerald Anderson before the latter started seeing Pop Princess Sarah Geronimo.
Jessie said she only met Gerald when "Budoy" started taping and that was the time she got close with the actor.
"Before Budoy hindi talaga kami close. Then we had workshops together. May alam ako sa kanya, may alam din siya sa akin. I know his secrets, he knows my secrets," she said. (Sunnex)
