Kathryn Bernardo likes Daniel Padilla’s protectiveness, "Kasi hindi naman siya yung super seloso na super nakakasakal na."

Is Kathryn Bernardo open to being paired with other guys? The Kapamilya star replied, "Opo. Kasi nga yun, dadating naman talaga yung time na ila-loveteam ako sa iba, ila-loveteam siya [Daniel Padilla] sa iba. So ayun…ganun po talaga siguro. Kailangan i-accept na lang namin."

Coming from the success of her primetime teleserye Princess And I, Kathryn Bernardo’s career seems to be on a steady climb.

Her successful tandem with Daniel Padilla has led to a big-screen debut lead role in Must Be…Love, several endorsements, and another upcoming series, Got To Believe.

Last Thursday, July 25, Kathryn was introduced as the newest brand ambassador for Juicy cologne at the 14th Floor of ABS-CBN’s ELJ Bldg.

Kathryn tells PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the press that she is grateful for her latest endorsement.

“Sobrang saya talaga. Kasi sobrang dami ng artistang puwede nilang piliin and then, di ba, ikaw yung pinagkatiwalaan nila to endorse the product and to promote it.

“So I’m very thankful po talaga sa lahat ng blessings na dumadating ngayon.”

JUGGLING SHOWBIZ AND STUDIES. Apart from her thriving showbiz career, Kathryn is busy with regular schooling.

She is currently taking up Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, major in Marketing at Endurun Colleges.

It’s a wonder how she manages her time with everything that’s going on in her life.

She relates, “Kinakaya ko pa naman siya. Actually, pag Tuesdays, after ng morning class ko, puwede na ’kong dumiretso from work…

“And then pag Saturdays, as in block-off yun for my school lang the whole day. And actually, wino-work out naman din with the production, my schedule.

“So okay kasi talagang lahat sila tumutulong para mapagsabay ko yung school ko with my work. So ayun, kinakaya ko pa naman siya ngayon.”

While most girls her age would spend their free time socializing and partying, Kathryn has to balance work and school instead.

How does she feel about this?

“Iniisip ko na lang siya na parang, everything naman comes with sacrifice, di ba?

“So feeling ko, lahat ng blessings ngayon, yun talaga yung kailangan mo munang i-give up.


“And feeling ko naman, yung po yung social life naman na hinahanap ko, nandito na rin sa trabaho ko.

“So hindi ko na kailangan hanapin. Hindi rin naman ako ma-gimik and everything.”

POSSESSIVE DANIEL? In an interview for YES! magazine’s August issue, Kathryn’s loveteam Daniel Padilla warned her future suitors, “Basta siguraduhin niya na mahihigitan niya ako!”

We asked Kathryn, is it hard to top Daniel?

“Si DJ [his nickname] very ano siya, e, ma-effort po talaga.

“So ayun, kung sinabi nga niya na kung willing naman, may mga gusto naman, may mga nag-aadmire sa iba, e di go…basta, ayun…”

YES! magazine’s Most Beautiful for 2013 doesn’t think her loveteam is being too possessive, “No naman po, kasi wala rin namang ibang nanliligaw sa kin…”

Is she not allowed to entertain other suitors?

“Hindi naman…wala lang sigurong nagkakaro’n ng courage,” she clarifies.

If anything, Kathryn appreciates Daniel’s so-called possessiveness. She says, “Kasi hindi naman siya yung super seloso na super nakakasakal na.

“Yung ano lang siya, very protective and possessive lang talaga siya in a way na hindi naman yung super nakakasakal. Kasi makikita mo na ganun din siya sa pamilya niya.”

One way Daniel shows his protectiveness, “Sa pagdamit, ayun, ayaw niya yung masyadong, ayaw niyang naka-tube or masyadong maiksi yung shorts.

“Very ano lang siya, very kuya. Kasi ganun din siya sa mga kapatid niya, e, na gusto niya yung igagalang ka talaga kapag tinitignan,” tells Kathryn.

The young actress likes to look at Daniel’s counsel in a constructive light, “For me rin naman kasi, ayoko rin naman yung masyadong revealing.

“Ganun din naman ako, ayoko yung masyadong sexy, fitted, ganyan.

“And ayun, nakakapag-experiment pa rin naman ako with my style, pag ASAP, ganyan, puwede naman. Once in a while, puwede.”


MORE MATURE KATHRYN. According to Kathryn, her character Chichay in Got To Believe will be more mature than her character in Princess and I.

She relates, “Siguro, ano siya, mas…kasi di ba si Mikay dun sa Princess and I, parang more on very young siya, ganyan.

“And dito kasi, hindi naman super mas mature, pero one step lang na mas mature.

“Kung pa’no siya sa family niya, kung ano siya as a person, kung pa’no siya, yung mga sacrifices niya para sa family niya, yun, ganyan siya.

“And para ngang more on romance din yung Got To Believe.”

But the 17-year-old maintains she’s not ready for any kissing scene yet, “Hindi pa po.”

No doubt, the KathNiel loveteam has a solid following. But is Kathryn open to being paired with other guys?

She replies, “Opo. Kasi nga yun, dadating naman talaga yung time na ila-loveteam ako sa iba, ila-loveteam siya sa iba…

“So ayun…ganun po talaga siguro. Kailangan i-accept na lang namin.”

Kathryn could not be coaxed into naming other young actors she would consider as her next love team.

But actors she dreams of working with—“John Lloyd Cruz, Mr. Piolo Pascual, Ronaldo Valdez.

“’Yan, yung mga senior veterans na super matututo ka sa kanila…like Vilma Santos. Yun po.”

In time, would she be ready to stand alone as an actress?

“Opo, I think naman ready na po ako dun. I think DJ, ready na din naman talaga siya.

“Kasi kahit before po siguro…Pero siguro ngayon kasi, ayun, hindi naman kasi puwedeng loveteam lang forever.

“Sinasabi nga nila na dadating yung time, paghihiwalayin kami. So kung dumating siguro yung time na yun, siguro, medyo ready na rin po siguro.”
