MANILA (Mabuhay) -– After admitting that he has been hanging out with Shaina Magdayao, Piolo Pascual is now choosing to keep mum about their blossoming friendship.
Pascual was open in saying that he and Magdayao are enjoying each other’s company. Both Kapamilya stars are currently working on the movie “On The Job.”
“My friendship with Shaina is okay. Masaya kami because sa ‘On The Job’ we’re able to know each other better and at the same time, siguro we just have the same interests. Marami naman siguro nakakakita sa Intagram ng mga pinaggagagawa namin,” he said.
Pascual, however, said he does not want to say anything more about their closeness.
“There’s a thin line sa being showbiz and wanting it personal kasi whatever you say, it may appear as a showbiz answer or what have you. Gusto ko sana walang sabihin, I don’t want to comment. I don’t want to say anything about it pero dumadating tayo sa point na nakukuwestiyon ka. As much as you want to be sincere, iba pa rin ang dating sa tao eh,” he said.
Pascual believes that the more he talks about it, the more people would speculate.
“Siguro may mga bagay na hindi pinapangunahan. People’s eyes are on you. You will be judged kahit anong gawin mo. Just to spare her that offense, minsan ayaw mo na lang magsalita kasi minsan nauuna pa ang ibang tao na mag-come up ng things about you guys. Sad to say we are both in showbiz na jina-judge lahat ng ginagawa namin,” he said.
Asked about their real status now, Pascual said: “What I can safely say about our relationship is we are friends, we are very good friends. We’ve been hanging out a lot lately so nandoon siya sa point na iyon.”
In a separate interview, Magdayao said she is happy that Pascual appreciates her but stressed that she is enjoying the single life.
Prodded about his reaction to the actress’ statement, Pascual said: “You just don’t want to preempt things because we are just enjoying each other’s company. Gaya nga ng sinabi niya, ngayon lang siya nag-e-enjoy being single. I want to give her that as well.”
Meanwhile, Pascual said he and actor Sam Milby have not had the chance to talk about Magdayao yet.
Milby has been vocal about his plans to court Magdayao. (MNS)
