If Kim Chiu was asked to say "tayong dalawa" to one of her leading men, Gerald Anderson and Jake Cuenca, she would definitely choose the former.
This was her answer when a reporter asked the 18-year-old actress about it during the press conference of their new ABS-CBN television series Tayong Dalawa this afternoon, December 22, at Gusi Restaurant on Sgt. Esguerra Street, Quezon City.She explained, "Si Gerald kasi matagal na kaming magkakilala."
The screen partner of Kim admitted that they are currently in a "mutual relationship or M.U." stage.
Does this mean that reports saying they're already in this stage for eight months are true?
"Hindi totoo 'yon. Wala talaga," Kim answered. "Hindi ko alam kung paano bang may eight months, may six months."
Gerald added, "Marami namang kumakalat sa diyaryo na hindi pa namin alam. Hindi naman nakakagulat sa amin 'yon."Kim thought that maybe it started when they had a press visit for Tayong Dalawa. "Kasi, parang may nagsabi, may press visit kami noon, 'tapos sinabi na, ‘Uy, sabi ng manager ni Gerald six to eight months na kayo.' Tapos, sabi ko, ‘Naku, hindi. Siguro parang gusto-gusto lang each other pero wala.' Siguro hindi na sinabi ang next na sinabi ko, hanggang doon na lang yata ang nilabas nila, parang ganun. So, nagulat ako kahapon, nasa diyaryo, nabasa ko siya. Wala talagang months," Kim explained.
How would they describe their relationship?
Kim "Siguro parang may gusto sa isa't isa, pero no commitments, ganyan, para masaya lang."
Gerald: "Ganun pa rin, hindi po kami nagmamadali."
NOT ANOREXIC. During the interview, Kim also told the entertainment press that she got a nutritionist and dietitian to help her gain weight.
"Siya lang ang nagpapadala ng papers, 'yong kakainin ko for this week. Binibigay niya lang sa akin. Mayroon lang nakasulat sa doon kung ano ang kakainin ko," she said.
The young actress said that it was her personal decision to get a dietitian to somehow end rumors about her being anorexic. She explained, "Kasi parang hindi na natapus-tapos 'yong anorexic issue, ganyan. Kumakain naman ako, pero... Tumaba na nga ako, e, ng mga four pounds."
She added, "Siguro hindi ako marunong kung ano'ng kakainin ko pampataba, so ginawa ko na lang 'yun. Effective naman 'yon. Tapos, nagdyi-gym ako, nagbubuhat, para lumaki ang arms ko."Kim said she couldn't blame the reporters who wrote this negative issue about her, especially since her body frame is really thin. So, she just said, "Ewan ko, hindi talaga natatapos 'yong issue."
