Speculations linking Gerald Anderson to Julia Barretto continue to set tongues wagging but two actors gave antiseptic answers when asked about it recently.
Meet Maja Salvador and Joshua Garcia — though you probably know them by now. She is Gerald’s former girlfriend, while Joshua just broke up with Julia last month.
According to Maja, she would rather not be involved in the issue.
“Ayoko nang sumali. Masaya ako. Ayoko sumali, ayokong sumagot. Sa akin, kung puwede lang, wala na ako diyan,” she said.
Rumors about Gerald and Julia having a thing was deemed to have been fueled by Bea Alonzo’s cryptic “Enough” post. Was that a hint at infidelity? Bea has been Gerald’s girlfriend for three years now.
In a more recent interview, Bea answered questions about her relationship with Gerald Anderson during a break in a story conference of her new project.
“Honestly, to my understanding, we did not break up. He just started not talking to me,” Bea said about her relationship now with Gerald.
As for Maja, she stressed that she has nothing to do with anything at all, and she wants to keep it that way.
“Hayaan natin silang lahat mag-heal (sa issue), dahil hindi madali ang may mga pinagdadaanan,” Maja simply said when pressed by reporters to comment on the matter. “So huwag na tayong sumabay, huwag na nating gatungan, kasi at the end of the day, lahat tayo tao, nasasaktan, at marami tayong mga bagay na mas kailangan pang asikasuhin na mas importante.”
In any case, the 30-year-old maintained she is at her “happiest disposition.” She is currently in a relationship with businessman Rambo Nuñez.
‘Okay na okay’
Meanwhile, Joshua chooses to focus on work amid the controversy.
“Ako po ay okay na okay lang,” he said when asked about how he has been doing these past few days.
“Masaya lang po kasi ako ngayon eh. Passionate ka sa trabaho mo. Puro trabaho lang ho talaga ako recently eh. So, malayo ’yung iniisip ko. Nasa trabaho,” the young actor added.
While he refrained from giving a comment on the issue, the 21-year-old opted to show support for Julia through text message.
“Malalampasan mo ’yan,” his message to her read, as shared by the latter on her Instagram account. “I know you, you’re the strongest girl na nakilala ko. Takot nga ako sa iyo eh.”
Joshua and Maja are two of the lead stars of ABS-CBN’s upcoming series “The Killer Bride.”
Joining them are Geoff Eigenmann, James Blanco, Precious Lara Quigaman, Sam Concepcion, Alexa Ilacad, Eddie Gutierrez, and Janella Salvador, who serves as Joshua’s new leading lady.
According to Janella, she has always wanted to work with Joshua. The two underwent sensual workshop in order to break down barriers between them.
“Ilang beses na dapat kami magta-trabaho ni Joshua pero hindi natutuloy. So I’m very happy na finally matutuloy na,” Janella said, who was in brief hiatus prior to landing in the role.
“The Killer Bride” will premiere on ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida evening block and worldwide on The Filipino Channel on Aug. 12 replacing “Sino Ang Maysala?: Mea Culpa.”
