Cesar Montano dismissed rumors that he fathered a child with Miss Philippines Earth 2009 Sandra Seifert.
When asked if he is having a new “bundle of joy,” Cesar shook his head and said, "Wala, wala.
"Lagi na lang may joy. Pag meron kang Diyos, laging may joy. Kasama 'yon."
The actor-director was one of the celebrity guests who attended the gala night of the 20th French Film Festival held Wednesday night, June 3, at Greenbelt in Makati City.
When talk turned to his lovelife, the actor begged off from giving details.
"Wala pa, next time na lang natin pag-usapan 'yan. We'll put it onscreen."
What are his inspirations now?
"Running, good diet, no meat and more exercise."
Is he also inspired by Sandra who is rumored to be his current girlfriend?
The actor simply laughed and did not answer the question.
Their frequent sightings together have raised speculations about Cesar and Sandra having a romantic relationship with each other.
They have been reportedly spending time with each other in the United States.
The two were recently spotted in the audience of the May 26 episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Cesar diclosed that he returned to the Philippines just a few weeks ago.
"I arrived May 20th. I've been playing golf."
When he was complimented for looking good these days, he simply said, "Dapat maraming inspiration. Dapat inspired ka to do another film.
"I haven't been doing any film for quite some time.
"Buti na lang may mga friends sa French embassy tulad ni Martin Macalintal na nag-invite and yung French ambassador, nag-invite rin sa akin to watch French films."
Since Cesar watched The Ellen DeGeneres Show with Sandra in the United States, does he consider that as their date?
The actor suddenly bid farewell to reporters by thanking them, "Maraming salamat. I'm here to watch a movie of the French Film [Fest]."
THE SOURCE. Later on, PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) had the chance to interview Cesar exclusively about the controversies surrounding him.
What are his next projects?
Cesar said, "I'm doing a movie but I cannot disclose it yet.
"Kaya I went to the States to talk to Donald Martin, my Hollywood screenwriter friend.
"Dini-develop pa namin and we want to make sure that the script is good."
How about TV shows?
"Right now, I cannot afford to do TV shows kasi naka-focus ako sa film."
What is his reaction to reports indicating that he has fathered a love child with Sandra?
He said, "Hindi pinapansin 'yan, kasi yung source niyan, hindi naman niya nire-reveal ang sarili niya.
"Takot siya pumunta sa liwanag.
"Saka ko na ie-entertain yun kapag matapang na siya pumunta sa liwanag."
He has been sighted several times with Sandra...
Cesar said, "I've been sighted with a lot of women.
"Ngayon nga lang, may kasama ako na pamangkin ko. Puro babae rin.
"Ini-expect ko na matsitsismis rin, e. Pero I'm with my nieces."
