MANILA, July 12 (Mabuhay) -– Actor John Lloyd Cruz said it frustrates him to repeatedly address rumors that he and girlfriend, actress Angelica Panganiban, have already called it quits.
“Mula noon hanggang ngayon, masayang-masaya kami. Siguro kaya rin siguro [may rumors] para bigyan kulay ng iba, parang, ‘Sige, batuhin natin sila. Gawan natin sila ng istorya na hindi sila masaya.’ Siguro, ganun talaga ang mundo,” he said.
Cruz said it bothers him when those around him become worried, asking if his relationship with Panganiban is indeed on the rocks.
“May mga taong nag-aalala for us, may mga fans na nag-aalala. And mind you, ang tao, especially ‘yong mga nagbabasa ng tabloids, kung ano ‘yong pini-feed mo sa kanila, every day pini-feed mo, sometimes naniniwala sila. So, parang dapat mas ma-exercise ‘yong kung ano’ng klase ng journalism ba ang kailangan. Kasi, parang hindi na rin maganda,” the actor said.
Emphasizing that his life has never been better, Cruz said it upsets him that other entertainment reporters are quick to jump into conclusions concerning his personal life.
“It’s quite offensive ha. Parang people can assume na may pinagdadaanan ka. Parang, paano n’yo nalaman? Parang, ano ang alam niyo? Kaya siya minsan nakaka-offend kasi parang it’s in a way of putting words into our mouths,” he explained.
Cruz said it is exhausting to explain things that are not true.
“Yung sa amin ni Angelica na pilit ginagawan ng isyu, nakakasawa na nga. You know, minsan kasi hindi na kami ang gumagawa. Minsan media na ang gumagawa. Minsan nagtataka ka kung saan nanggagaling,” he said.
While Cruz wants his personal life be kept from the public, he assured his supporters and those who are spreading lies that his relationship with Panganiban is stronger than ever.
“Sobra talagang walang problema. Sobrang we get along, pamilya namin walang problema. I mean, walang rason talaga [para magka-isyu],” he said. (MNS)
