An alleged “kissing photo” of teen stars Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla circulated online recently. The photo was taken in an airport in Canada where the pair had a show. It showed the stars standing close at an angle that made them appear to be smooching.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at an Oishi Surprise event in Quezon City yesterday, November 14, Kathryn and Daniel said the rumor about the suddenly controversial photo is too laughable to be taken seriously.
For Kathryn, “Nakakatawa lang pag wala naman talaga and alam mo naman na 'di totoo, hindi ka maapektuhan.
"So kami, tinatawanan lang namin.
“Lalo pa siya [Daniel], wala naman 'yang pakialam sa mga issues na ibabato. So wala, okay lang."
For Daniel, he said people can think what they want, "Kung masaya sila sa imagination nilang yun, okay.”
FUTURE PROJECTS. The two breezed through all the questions about the KathNiel issues to move the discussion forward to topics more important to both of them. Their work, for instance.
The love team said they are excited to be paired anew in two upcoming projects— a movie to be released next year and a teleserye, the remake of ABS-CBN's Pangako Sa 'Yo.
According to Kathryn, “Yung movie wala pang working title, pero mag-start na kami mag-shoot soon, very soon.
“Mag-kakamovie kami ni Kathryn, yun na lang ang dapat nilang abangan," Daniel interjected.
“Marami kaming upcoming surprises,” Kathryn added.
Daniel also admitted that he prefers to focus more on their loveteam than on their individual projects.
He stressed, “Talagang kailangan nila abangan yung kami ni Kathryn muna. Wala [muna] akong mag-isa.
CHRISTMAS TOGETHER. Daniel will spend Christmas at Kathryn's family home after the Noche Buena celebration with his family at his newly built home.
“Sa bahay lang, invite ng mga tao, invite ng mga kaibigan ko, kaibigan ni Mama. Kain lang, normal na araw. May dinner lang kami [with Kathryn],” Daniel related.
“Sa bahay namin, pupunta sila after ng Noche Buena. Kasi wala kami dito sa New Year, so gusto namin mag-enjoy super sa Christmas," Kathryn shared.
She said they are not planning anything luxurious for Christmas, “Basta gusto mo yung mga kasama mo, yun naman ang importante.”
