Judy Ann Santos recently asked the public to give Sarah Geronimo and Matteo Guidicelli the space and privacy that they need, even though the two have yet to confirm the status of their romance.
In a previous interview, the PEP Reporters’ Choice awardee told the media: “I believe [people] have to respect the privacy that they want because iyon lang naman ang gusto ng dalawang tao.
“If someday, kung anuman ang mangyari sa kanilang dalawa, e, di let them be. They deserve it.”
During the May 27 premiere night of her movie Maybe This Time, the Popstar Princess expressed her gratitude to Juday whom she considers as a true friend.
Sarah’s friendship with Judy Ann began when they did the 2010 movie Hating Kapatid for Viva Films.
Sarah said, “Ang ate ko, napakataas ng respeto ko sa kanya at inspirasyon ang ibinibigay niya sa akin, the way she lives her life.
"Not just as an actress, not just bilang a celebrity or a public figure, kung paano siya naging magandang ehemplo sa akin, sa aming mga young adults at sa pagiging mother niya ngayon.
“Kaya ako ngayon, napaka-blessed ko at suwerte ko to have her as a true friend.
"Malaking-malaki ang pasasalamat ko kay Ate. Mahal na mahal ko si Ate Juday.”
Last May 18, Sarah’s photo with Matteo Guidicelli during a post-race event became viral.
The said picture, which was uploaded on Instagram by @thatsmytatayryan, showed Sarah and Matteo along with Juday and Ryan Agoncillo.
What is Sarah’s reaction to this?
“Wala naman. Iba-iba naman ang opinion ng mga tao on how they would take it.
"We’re living our normal lives. Yun lang naman po iyon.
“As long as wala tayong sinasaktan na tao, wala namang dapat ikatago.”
In a previous interview, Juday said that she often gives love advice to Sarah, but the Young Superstar did not disclose the advice that she shared.
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) took this opportunity to ask Sarah to reveal the best love advice that Juday gave to her.
“Ibalanse ang mga bagay-bagay. Importante, unahin ang Diyos at pamilya, mga kaibigan, at special someone.
“Kailangan balansehin,” she recalled.
Did Sarah invite Matteo to attend the premiere night of Maybe This Time?
Instead of answering, the Popstar Princess just gave a sweet smile.
