“During Pure Love, we weren’t really comfortable with each other because, of course, we had just met back then. It was our first project together, and we were just starting become friends,” said the gregarious actress. “But here in the movie, there’s this constant closeness between us. He’s very consistent on making me kilig [giddy].”
Gonzaga added, “Joseph is great to be with—he easily connects with other people. He is a perfect gentleman that’s why I am very comfortable with him.”
Marco and the 28-year-old actress were romantically linked during their TV days, but when asked if the mestizo leading man courted her, Gonzaga honestly replied, “She did not court me during Pure Love—it seems like it was after!”
Following a hearty laugh, she added, “But we didn’t have the opportunity to get to know each other. I think at that time, neither of us prioritized getting into a relationship—but this time, I’m ready to entertain [suitors].”
Indeed, Toni Gonzaga’s little sister is all grown up now as she opened up, “I like someone who is persistent, because there are [suitors]who come around and don’t really hang on.
“For the record, I don’t know if Joseph is really courting me or if he is really serious now. He sends has signals but I don’t like to assume. But maybe if he comes to our house unannounced…” the ever funny Gonzaga trailed off, bursting into another fit of laughter.
Finally having his shot at the Q&A, Marco simply said, “I don’t want to force anything. I just want whatever we have to take its natural course. We tried [to get together]before but like what Alex said, we weren’t ready that time.”
Gonzaga, who waited all of nine years to star in a solo movie also opened up about finally getting her biggest break via My Rebound Girl.
