KAPUSO actress Pauleen Luna admires boyfriend Vic Sotto’s simple living despite his name, status and influence in the local entertainment scene.
According to the 25-year-old, the “Eat Bulaga” main man appreciates the little stuff and values quality time more than any material thing money can buy.
“If you really know him, makikilala mo kung gaano ka-simpleng tao siya. Hindi siya extravagant, hindi siya maluho, ang nakakapagpaligaya sa kaniya are the little things,” she said.
Pauleen continued, “’Yun ang gusto ko sa kaniya, wala sa ulo niya, sa lifestyle niya kung nasaan man siya ngayon.”
Vic’s latest success is the 2013 Metro Manila Film Festival entry “My Little Bossings,” which he top billed opposite child star Ryzza Mae Dizon, showbiz newbie James Aquino-Yap, and singer/actress Aiza Seguerra.
The movie tops the box-office and reportedly raked more than P400 million during its two weeks airing.
If many thought the film’s success translates to grandiose gifts during the holidays, Pauleen was fast to dismiss this. She said they don’t even have gifts for each other.
“Hindi kami materialistic. Hindi kami maregalo and mas mabigat sa amin yung time spent with each other. Kasi anything naman mabibili niya, anything naman mabibili ko, so it’s really not that important,” said Pauleen.
Pauleen was also asked if Vic already gave her a engagement ring as Christmas present, the actress said they’re not there yet.
“Kung napag-uusapan, napag-uusapan naman talaga. But you know, until that day na mayroong solid plans, wala pa.”
The actress said she doesn’t want to assume anything but they are both very happy with the status of their relationship, especially now that they’ve become very vocal about it.
“Ayokong pangunahan ang mga bagay-bagay. But like what I’ve said, we are very happy with where we are in our relationship. We are very open to each other,” she said.
She added, “Kung ano ‘yung gusto niya and gusto ko, nasasabi namin sa isa’t isa. Kaya kung ano man ang mangyayari, hayaan na lang natin mangyari bago natin pagusapan.”
Pauleen added that her parents are much okay now that her relationship with Vic is out in the open.
“For them mas okay ‘yung pinag-uusapan kaysa ‘yung hindi talaga pinag-uusapan. Wala naman sigurong magulang na may gusto na may boyfriend ‘yung anak niya tapos hindi pinaguusapan at all,” she ended. (MNS)
