“Sorry to disappoint, but we are not gay!”
Ito ang sagot ni Bret Jackson sa mga naghihinalang may mas malalim na relasyon sila ng kaibigan niyang si James Reid.
Dahil sa sobrang close daw ng dalawa, hindi mapigilan ng ilan na mag-isip na baka may gay relationship sina Bret at James.
Sabi ni James, “You know, we just laugh it off. Nakakatawa kasi, e.
“I mean, are they serious when they think that we have a more intimate relationship?
“Can’t two men be good buddies and not be labeled as gay?
“Both James and I, we have nothing against two men having an intimate relationship. That’s their choice and we respect that.
“Pero kami kasi ni James, we’re really, really very good friends.
“From the time that we first met sa Pinoy Big Brother five years ago, we’ve been friends and nobody was questioning that before.
“Siguro dahil pareho kaming artista kaya nilalagyan nila ng malice.
“Kaya kami ni James, pinagtatawanan na lang namin.
“There’s no reason for us to get mad because what they are thinking is not true.
“We’re hot-blooded men and we like women!”
Nakapanayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Bret sa press conference ng pelikulang Angela Markado noong November 24.
GRATEFUL TO JAMES FOR HIS SECOND SHOT AT STARDOM. Dahil sa ganyang tsismis sa kanilang dalawa, naisip ba ni Bret na iwasan na munang makitang kasama si James para mawala ang gay rumor sa kanilang dalawa?
Sagot niya, “I would not sacrifice my friendship with James just to make this rumor stop.
“I mean, why would James and I be affected if it’s not true, di ba?
“James has been a very good and loyal friend.
“I owe him my career. I wouldn’t have this career now if it wasn’t for him.
“James was the one who convinced me to give showbiz another try.
"I was already living in Dumaguete City and I accepted the fact that nothing was going to happen sa career ko.
“Kinulit talaga ako ni James. He was the one who talked to Viva about me.
"And my life changed dahil sa pangungulit ni James.
“So I will not even entertain the thought of avoiding James just because of a rumor.
"I am not that kind of a friend."
DIFFERENT TASTES IN GIRLS. Pagdating sa babae, magkaiba naman daw ang taste nina Bret at James.
“We have very different taste in women.
“Like si James, he likes the morena type. Tapos gusto niya yung skinny girls. Yung payat talaga.
“Ako naman, I like them petite at fair-skinned.
“So, we’re very different when it comes to the type of women.
“Minsan nag-iinisan kami ni James. I have comments on the girls he dates and vice-versa.
“Pero wala namang kaming magawa kasi iyon ang type namin, e.
“Mabuti na lang na hindi kami pareho ng gusto or else we are going to have a problem.”
DATING ELLA. And speaking of petite girls, nabalita ngang karelasyon ngayon ni Bret si Ella Cruz.
Nagkakilala sina Bret at Ella nang gawin nila ang isang episode ng Wattpad Presents sa TV5.
Itinanggi ni Bret na sila na ni Ella, pero hindi niya itinangging nag-date sila ng ilang beses.
“Yes, we did go out on dates but that was just it.
“Hindi ko naman siya niligawan.
“Ella is a very sweet girl. She makes me laugh.
“We send each other these emojis [emoticons]
“Ella sends me an emoji of a whale. I send her an emoji of a monkey.
“Ganun lang kaming dalawa,” diin niya.
Gusto ba niyang maging girlfriend si Ella?
Paglilinaw ni Bret, “Even if I want to, it’s impossible for me to get into a relationship now.
“I am more focused on my work now.
“I just finished this movie with Andi Eigenmann, which is Angela Markado. And I am currently shooting an indie film with Pokwang.
“Plus I have other commitments that Viva has scheduled for me.
“Kaya it would be unfair of me to not have time for my girl.
“It’s better to not get involved muna and just concentrate on one thing, which is work.”
