Angel Locsin denied rumors of an animosity between her and Marian Rivera, who was once her rival when they were still in the same television network.
For the first time, Locsin opened up on what happened when she met Rivera for the shoot of the cover of the September 2013 cover of Rogue Magazine.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Locsin said it was a very pleasant meeting that was meant to happen.
“Nakakatuwa na nagkita kami. First time namin magkita after mag-move and all. Sabi ko kailangan naming mag-usap. Tumawa siya tapos sabi niya, ‘Oo nga eh.’ Niyakap ko siya, niyakap niya ako, tawa lang kami ng tawa,” she said.
While they really didn’t have issues with each other, Locsin admitted that their relationship somehow became affected because they were always being pitted against each other in the past.
“Sa amin, wala kaming issue, wala kaming away. Siguro naging aloof kami sa isa’t isa kasi laging naco-compare. Kahit anong gawin namin, may manlalait sa akin na fan niya, or may manlalait sa kanya na fan ko,” she said.
She added: “Wala namang ginawa sa aking masama si Marian. Ako wala naman akong nagawang masama sa kanya. Nung ‘Shop and Share,’ humingi pa ako ng donations sa kanya – mga gowns and bags. Pinuntahan ko siya sa bahay niya.”
Proving she really has nothing against the Kapuso actress, Locsin said she is open to working with her in a project when the right time comes.
“Hindi ko alam. Kung para magkaroon lang ng issue ‘yung project, huwag na lang kasi sayang naman ang performance naming or director kung matatabunan lang ng issue ‘yung pelikula. Baka hindi pa naaayon pero wala kaming problema,” she said.
Locsin said she is just happy that they were given the chance to bond during the magazine pictorial.
Aside from Locsin and Rivera, the cover of Rogue’s September 2013 issue also featured Anne Curtis, Judy Ann Santos and Charlene Gonzales.
Wearing pieces from Louis Vuitton’s Fall/Winter Collection 2013, the ladies were styled by Pam Quiñones for the cover, which was photographed by Mark Nicdao. (MNS)
