Felix Roco said that he has accepted the fact that his father, award-winning actor Bembol Roco, has another woman in his life. (CLICK HERE to read related article.)
"Matagal na 'yon. Actually, matagal ko nang tanggap. Siguro dati, I may have said something na hindi tama, pero matagal ko nang tanggap. You live, you learn," the young actor told PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other invited media during the press visit on the set of Rosalka last night, August 3, at Casa Pura in Scout Santiago, Quezon City.
The 21-year-old actor is now also open to the possibility that he might have a stepbrother or stepsister courtesy of his dad.
"Okay, that's his life, tanggapin ko na rin. That's something you're not supposed to get mad," he said.
Felix mentioned that he still communicates with his dad ever since he left their house.
Because of what happened to their family, Felix said that he and his twin brother Dominic became closer to their mom, Josefina, whose name is tattooed on Felix's left wrist.
"One true love ko 'yan," Felix said about his mom while showing us his tattoo. "Kasi, walang sumasama sa mom ko ngayon kaya kami ang nag-aalaga. That's why I'd rather stay at the house din."
Even though he's close to his mom, Felix said he doesn't meddle with his mother's lovelife. "Ayaw na naming makialam sa mommy ko kasi she's been through a lot. Ayaw ko nang makialam sa mommy ko."
NO TIME FOR LOVELIFE. On the other hand, Felix doesn't want to talk about his brother's rumored relationship with young actress Maxene Magalona. (CLICK HERE to read related article.)
"Tanungin na lang natin si Dominic," said Felix, trying to keep his lips sealed about the issue.
However, he admitted that he and Dominic are really close to Maxene. "Ang alam ko, they're getting to know each other pa. Pero we're close din."
When asked if Dominic has introduced Maxene to their mom, he answered: "Actually, lumalabas na nga sila, e."
Does Felix, who claims that he's still single, get envious about his brother?
The Rosalka actor said no. Then, he stated, "I'd rather concentrate on work kasi masyadong bugbugan [ang mga scene]."
That explains why there's no romantic relationship between him and 17-year-old co-star Empress Schuck.
Aside from Empress being so young, Felix also said, "Nirerespeto ko lang din kasi ayaw din ng magulang niya."
Despite this, Felix said that he has become closer to Empress compared to their first taping days. "Dati hindi kami nag-uusap noong simula ng taping ng Rosalka. Pero ngayon, kulitan na nga, e."
STAYS FOCUSED ON SHOWBIZ CAREER. Aside from his daily afternoon show Rosalka, Felix is also preparing for the annual Cosmopolitan Bachelor Bash.
Felix has just started his plan to put on some muscle. "Actually, ngayon pa lang ako naghahanda. Kailangan huwag munang kumain!" he said, laughing.
Although he has done butt exposure in the indie film Sagrada Familia, the young star still feels uncomfortable taking off his shirt in public.
"I'm not comfortable lang now with my body," he said. "I'm a very private person. Actually, ayaw ko talagang magka-muscle. But since kailangan, ayaw ko namang mapahiya na ako lang ang [hindi fit]."
Felix also said that, for the meantime, he might not accept offers that would require him to do sexy scenes.
"I've been there. I don't wanna do it again," he said.
Also because of his busy schedule, Felix already declined some indie projects.
He's hoping though that he'd become one of the endorsers of a major clothing brand, which currently supplies some of his wardrobe.
