Jon Avila is love-teamed for reel with goody-two-shoes Judy Ann Santos, but in real life, he was once linked to sexpot Rufa Mae Quinto, who was briefly rumored, but recently cleared, of being featured in a Hayden Kho video.


Jon Avila is love-teamed for reel with good-two-shoes Judy Ann Santos, but in real life, he was once linked to sexpot Rufa Mae Quinto, who was briefly rumored, but recently cleared, of being featured in a Hayden Kho video.

Pinaka-unang pelikula para sa Regal Entertainment, Inc. ni Jon Avila ang OMG! (Oh, My Girl!) na pinagbibidahan nina Judy Ann Santos at Ogie Alcasid sa direksyon ni Dante Nico Garcia at ipapalabas na sa July 29.

Kaya tinanong ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Jon kung ano ang pagkakaiba working for Regal and working for Star Cinema before.

"Pareho lang, pati sa bayad. Siguro ang pagkakaiba lang, 'yung working condition, kasi 'yung Star Cinema puro ABS stars ang katrabaho ko, pero dito I'm working with Ogie.

"Masaya pa din, hindi malaki 'yung difference pero at least I'm widening my work with other artists."

KAPAMILYA, KAPUSO IN ONE FLICK. Si Ogie nga kasi na galing sa GMA-7 ay Kapuso, at si Jon naman na taga-ABS-CBN ay Kapamilya.

Ano ang maiko-comment niya working with a Kapuso star?

"Masaya ako dahil I'm working with a wide range of artists. Si Ogie naman composer, singer, he's achieved so much in the industry, he's a cornerstone in the industry."

In awe rin si Jon working with Judy Ann.

"And si Juday din... medyo nahihiya pa din ako sa kanila kasi magagaling sila, napaka-privileged ko, napaka-blessed ko," says Jon na ang role ay bilang si Bambam na ka-love team ni Darling, played by Judy Anne.

Anong feeling ng ka-love team niya kahit sa pelikula lang ang isang Judy Ann Santos?

"Wow ang reaction ko! Mabait siya, napakagaling, napaka-professional. It's just like a dream talaga. I can't believe this is happening na I'm working alongside magagaling na artista. I'm living the dream."

Kung single si Judy Ann, hindi imposibleng ma-attract dito si Jon.

"Why not? She's a very, very nice girl, mabait, and I heard magaling magluto. Pero hindi pa ako nakakatikim ng luto ni Juday."

SINGLE BY CHOICE. Sa ngayon, loveless and single si Jon.

"At the moment wala, wala pa rin... by choice."

Most recent na na-link sa kanya ay si Rufa Mae Quinto. Bakit hindi nagtuluy-tuloy?

"Parang nag-fade. Naging close kami sa shooting namin sa movie na Singles. We had fun, like all of us, 'yung buong cast."


Naging mag-on ba sila or may mutual understanding lang? "We're just close, just became real close, walang title, walang ganu'n."

Ngayon ba may communication pa sila ni Rufa Mae? "I have her number sa cellphone."

Recently ay nasali sa sex video scandal si Rufa Mae. Ano ang naging reaction du'n ni Jon?

"I heard about it, hindi ko napanood, ayokong maniwala sa mga tsismis, I have to see it to believe. But I haven't seen it so I don't know. My reaction? Wala lang."

Hindi si Rufa Mae ang nasa video, pero kung halimbawang naging si Rufa Mae nga 'yun, bababa ba ang tingin ni Jon kay Rufa Mae?

"Hindi naman. Sex is just a natural thing, everyone does it."

Is there a chance na ligawan ulit ni Jon si Rufa Mae? "It depends, hindi ko alam."

TAGALOG LESSONS. May tsikang nagalit si Rufa Mae dahil inindiyan siya ni Jon sa isang show.

"No, I never stood her up naman na walang ano. I think one time na dapat nagpunta ako sa show niya pero biglang pumasok ang trabaho so I couldn't make it. Ang alam ko naintindihan naman niya 'yun."


Bakit by choice na walang GF si Jon? "I have other priorities like my work, my family. I believe na if the right girl comes I will have a girlfriend."

Alam ni Jon (who is half-British, half-Filipino) na para sumikat siya nang husto dito sa Pilipinas ay kailangang maging matatas siya sa Tagalog.

"Siyempre kailangang magaling sa Tagalog, pero nag-aaral pa ako. May Tagalog lessons ako, two months na, kaso medyo mahal 'yung schooling, mga 21 thousand pesos. And aside from my lessons, mahilig akong magbasa ng mga script na Tagalog."
