Maja Salvador joked that she did not want to be seated beside Alden Richards during the 29th Star Awards for TV.
The ABS-CBN actress was overheard cracking this joke during the awards night held last night, December 3, at the KIA Theater in Cubao.
Maja was assigned to sit down with Alden while waiting for the announcement of the winners.
The Kapamilya actress was heard saying, "Ayoko tumabi kay Alden kasi baka ma-bash ako."
She was referring to the fact that some female stars were criticized for posting their photos with Alden.
The young actor is part of the AlDub love team, which is also composed of Maine "Yaya Dub" Mendoza.
To prevent getting linked to Alden, Maja designed a way for her to talk to her fellow Star Awards for TV awardee.
"Usap tayo, Alden, pero diretso lang ulo natin at huwag tayo magtinginan," she instructed the Kapuso actor.
Alden apologized to Maja for the trouble by saying, "Sorry, Maja."
Maja even quipped that she might get stiff neck from what they were doing.
"Lilingon ako sa kabila. Ayoko humarap sa iyo," said the star who earned the Best Actress Award for Bridges of Love.
Later on, Alden went up on stage to accept his trophy as Best Actor for the bayani-serye Ilustrado.
