Shaina Magdayao on Piolo Pascual: Were just friends-A A +A
Saturday, October 19, 2013
ACTRESS Shaina Magdayao denied that she's in a relationship with ultimate Kapamilya leading man Piolo Pascual.
A photo of the two holding hands together during the recent Kapamilya weekend event spread online prompting talks about their rumored romance.
In an interview with Shaina at "You're My Home" press conference in ABS-CBN, the "Juan dela Cruz" co-star said Piolo was just assisting her when the camera caught them together.
"Hawak lang naman ng kamay yun and gentleman talaga si Papa P. (Piolo). At that time nung na picture-an kami, inaalalayan niya ako. Lagi naman yung ganoon," she said.
Shaina said they'd talked about the said photo when they bumped into each other on the set of "ASAP 2013" but they didn't make a big deal out of it.
"Alam naman namin na nabibigayan ng kulay ng sobra. Ako, yung binibigay niyang friendship sa akin, ayokong i-assume in anyway. For me he really is a good person, a good friend," she added.
The actress clarified that Piolo is not courting her and they're not exclusively dating or in a relationship. She said she and Piolo are both busy with their respective careers.
"He's a good friend... he's always been a good friend to me. Lumalabas kami pag grupo, nung may time ako and may time pa siya, pero ngayon after JDC (Juan dela Cruz), ito (You're My Home) na ang haharapin ko. Walang halong biro pero wala talagang time ngayon," she said.
But she didn't deny that she got to know Piolo more when they did the movie "On The Job" earlier this year.
"Mas nakikilala ko siya. Hindi nawala yun pero we are both very, very busy. I'm happy na pareho kaming may trabaho," she said.
Right now, Shaina is ready for whatever or whoever will come but wishes not to fall in love just yet. She wants to give time for herself and to focus more on her career, especially now that she's part of Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta's reunion project "You're My Home."
"It's such a wonderful thing but pinagdadasal ko nga ngayon na wag na muna sana. For the first time I believe that it can wait, it will wait. Ngayon sobrang daming opportunities na dumarating sa akin," she said.
Shaina added: "Ngayon sobrang daming opportunities na dumadating sa akin. Sobrang daming trabaho na hindi ko iniexpect. Ngayon gusto ko muna i-value yun, pangalagaan 'yun."
She's also not ready yet to settle down and start building her own family.
But when asked if Piolo is an ideal man for her, the Kapamilya actress replied: "Ang gwapo gwapo, ang bait-bait and wala kang mairereklamo sa kanya. So bakit naman hindi, pero siyempre malayong-malayo pa tayo doon." (Sunnex)
