Jodi Sta. Maria has said it before and she says it again like a personal motto—“I have never lost faith in love. But marriage is a different thing.”
Maya, the actress’s popular character in the top-rater Be Careful With My Heart, might be getting her “fairy tale” wedding with her dreamboat fiancé Sir Chief (played by Richard Yap), but Jodi herself has no fairy tale illusions about marriage.
The 31-year-old actress, as she revealed last May, is waiting for the annulment of her marriage to Pampi Lacson.
At the press conference announcing the wedding episode of Be Careful With My Heart on Monday, November 4, at the G Hotel on Roxas Boulevard, Jodi was randomly asked if she still believes in marriage after her split with Pampi in March 2011.
Undaunted, the actress replied that she has not given up on love but marriage is a different matter altogether.
“Kailangan siyempre, prepared ka.”
Further asked if she still hopes for a dreamy wedding such as Maya’s, Jodi briefly paused before replying, “Paano ko ba ito sasagutin?
“Siguro mas realistic ako ngayon.”
Jodi is at present in a relationship with 25-year-old actor/ politician Jolo Revilla, a matter the actress wants to keep private from the press.
The wedding episode of Be Careful With My Heart will air on November 15.
