We see Paolo Contis and LJ Reyes in events, looking so sweet and holding each other’s hand, but not saying anything about their relationship.
So far, in their previous interviews, they had both said they’re “happy,” and that was also their response when PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment portal) spotted them at the recent event of MAC cosmetics.
The guy began, “Okay naman ang buhay.”
Laughing, the lady added, “Happy.”
We made an attempt to ask, “How long have you been officially together?”
Paolo replied, “We haven’t… wala naman kaming sinasabing officially ganun… we just went a…”
He paused then looked at LJ.
“I was downstairs, at the lobby, walking, and then I saw her arrive. Nagkataon terno kami, sabi ko, ‘Halika may MAC event daw doon sa taas…'”
LJ continued Paolo’s story, “’Tapos biglang andito na.”
We asked the lady to elaborate on her “happy” statement.
“Oo naman, lagi namang magaan yung buhay at di masyadong dinidibdib yung mga kaganapan.”
But you’ve known each other for a long time, right?
The StarStruck alumna answered, “Oo naman bata pa lang ako.”
But when did you guys feel, “This person can be special to me”?
It was the actor who replied, “Kasi ganito na lang ah, we’re enjoying our privacy.
“With whatever we have, we’re enjoying our… ever since naman, medyo open book yung sa akin at sa kanya naman, sa industriya so, right now, we wanted to enjoy our privacy…”
We asked, “You think it will work that way?”
Paolo, back to his palabiro mood, said, “Yung pagkakataon, nagdya-jogging ako kung nasaan din siya, it works.
“Parang stalker lang, di ba.”
LJ seconded, “I think yung jogging yung nagpapa-work diyan kasi yung free time niyo together is what we do… yung mga hobbies niyo. Athletic.”
Paolo agreed, “Ako, athletic ako, sobra. Grabe!”
THE THINGS THEY DO TOGETHER. On a more serious note, Paolo and LJ both enjoy watching movies and eating.
Again, Paolo jokingly said, “Since magaling siyang umarte ‘tapos magaling din akong kumain, umaarte kaming dalawa.
“Nag-a-actingan kami, hobby namin yun, e. Nagpapraktis kami, nagpapagalingan kami.”
Speaking of acting, we asked LJ about her daring role in Anino sa Likod ng Buwan.
She threw in, “I think that would be my last…kasi lumalaki na si Aki and it’s in line [with] my beliefs, kasi last year, nagpa-baptize ako as Christian.
“…Siguro magandang, magandang huling project ko yun siguro…”
We couldn’t help but notice LJ’s smooth skin.
She swore, “Hindi ako yung maarte. Water, water lang talaga saka moisturizer.”
How about having a monthly facial?
“Wala rin,” she said.
Paolo interjected, “Dapat sabihin mong nagma-MAC ka!”
We then asked Paolo about his grooming routine.
He quickly answered, “Actually, naka-MAC din.”
We all laughed.
