“No breakups!”

This was the first statement that actress Heart Evangelista uttered the moment she stepped out of the escalator leading to Shangri-La Plaza Mall’s Cinema 4 where the premiere commercial screening of independent film Busong was held earlier tonight, April 17.

Heart was at the said event to render her support for her Legacy co-actor, Alessandra de Rossi who stars in Aureaus Solito’s internationally-acclaimed Cinemalaya film entry.

Heart initially expressed that she did not want to be interviewed about her breakup with Brazilian model-turned-actor Daniel Matsunaga.

It was just last April 14, Saturday, that the couple made their split public over social networking site Twitter.

After congratulating Alessandra for Busong’s achievements, Heart intimated that she and her co-actors in Legacy are tightly-knit bunch.

In nostalgia, she stated, “Ayaw ko nga mag-end na, e.

"Kasi sobrang mga angel ko sila sa buhay. They make me happy all the time.

"So, sana hindi na mag-end yung Legacy.”

Heart admits that the cast members of the GMA-7 soap are helpful in getting her past the circumstances she is faced with at present.

“They make me happy.”

LIFE GOES ON. Heart brushed off questions that inquired how she is coping at the moment.

Her voice was stern: “I don’t want to talk about it. I really don’t want to. Sorry. I don’t want be rude…"

Complimented that she still manages to look beautiful in spite of the breakup, Heart smiled and quipped, “Thank you so much!”
