Sam Milby confirmed pursuing Jessy Mendiola-A A +A
Tuesday, August 27, 2013
AFTER being vocal on his interest with Shaina Magdayao, actor Sam Milby is singing a different tune now and admitted he's courting co-Kapamilya talent Jessy Mendiola.
In a "The Buzz" interview over the weekend, Sam said that Jessy is aware of his intentions to date her.
He also said that Jessy has been "very close" to him for the past two weeks, "She's aware and I did let her know of my intentions."
Sam added that she likes Jessy's simplicity and beauty.
When asked on their age gap, Jessy is only 20-year-old while Sam is nine years her senior, the actor said the "Paraiso" lead actress is very mature for her age.
"I think a lot of times she's misunderstood too... I can't say na I know her that well but the times that I've hung out with her have all been fun," Sam said.
Meanwhile, the young actress said she is not closing her doors for Sam, "Single ako at single siya so bakit naman hindi. I don't want to close any doors naman and why not let him get the chance na makilala ako and ganoon din ako sa kanya," she said in The Buzz.
Jessy added that Sam is a "sweet and nice" guy and they just started to hang out recently.
"Nothing super serious since alam niya na ang priority ko ang career ko. Let's see how it goes nalang."
The two worked together last year in one episode of "Maalaala Mo Kaya" before Sam left for the United States to try his luck in Hollywood. (Glaiza Jarloc/Sunnex)
