“We’re dating, we’re good… I like her, I really like her.”
Ito ang sagot ng Kapuso actor na si Benjamin Alves nang tanungin kung ano na ang estado ng relasyon nila ng singer-actress na si Julie Anne San Jose.
May mutual understanding na ba sila ni Julie Anne?
Diin ni Benjamin, “We’re dating, I don’t know the levels of that, na kung dating, MU na.
“We’re exclusively dating, I can tell you that, we are.”
Inamin na rin nga ni Julie Anne sa hiwalay na panayam na nagde-date sila ni Benjamin.
Reaksiyon dito ng aktor, “It’s just nice na you’re dating someone who’s proud of you.
“Na you’re with a girl who speaks her own mind, who isn’t swayed or persuaded by things… what the people would say.
“That’s very attractive in a woman, e.
“She’s not afraid of… yung, ‘Ay, baka kung ano ang sabihin nila.’
“It was nice to hear, I’m glad I’m able to have the venue to say, yeah, I feel the same way.”
Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Benjamin sa pocket nila ni Janine Gutierrez, para sa Cinemalaya entry na Dagsin, na ginanap sa Sentro 1771 restaurant, sa Makati City, nitong Miyerkules, August 3.
FUN COMPANY. Hindi naman daw regular ang pagde-date nila ni Julie Anne dahil pareho silang busy sa kanilang showbiz career.
Saad ni Benjamin, “We’re good, though, we’re good.
“I don’t know how often we get to see each other.
“Like, I have work tomorrow, but I’ll go and try to see her, maybe even for just a few minutes.
“It doesn’t really matter how long you get to see each other.
“The fact that you want to see each other and when you’re able to, yun lang naman yun,
“For the effort, e, so it’s fun, we’re good, we’re really good.”
Ano ang pinaka nagustuhan niya kay Julie Anne?
Ayon sa Kapuso hunk, “She’s strong, and malapit sa family, very down to earth.
“Masaya, masaya kami pag magkasama.”
BASHERS. Aware daw si Benjamin na may ilang hindi pabor sa panliligaw niya kay Julie Anne, partikular na ang mga tagahanga ng singer-actress at ng dati nitong ka-love team na si Elmo Magalona.
Ayon sa aktor, “I see it, but normally I wouldn’t deal with petty stuff like that.
“But if it’s geared towards people I care about, and I see how affected they are by it, then maybe there’s a side in me that wants to do it or has done it.
“Kung sa akin geared towards, deadma lang.
“But if it’s bashing Julie, then I have a problem with that.
“That’s somebody I care about so that’s when I have to really think of the situation.
“Kung kailangan ko bang patulan ito or something.
“Pero there have been times, like in Twitter, there are some that I actually answered.
“Because it was uncalled for, because it’s someone I’m dating.
“I can’t let that pass by me… like, it’s okay.
“But time and place naman, the situation.”
