Lovi Poe says that being in a relationship with French boyfriend Chris Johnson has been good for her.
The two have just been able to spend quality time together touring Europe after attending the Parisian wedding of Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho Jr. last September 3.
It was almost three weeks of much-deserved vacation for Lovi and Chris.
The 28-year-old Kapuso actress said, “Yeah, super fun. Because he brings out the fun side of me.
“Before, I used to be, like, super fun, and talagang I really enjoyed my day on a day-to-day basis.
“Kaso, medyo nung nag-mature na ako, naging uptight na ako and everything.
“Parang I’m always worried about tomorrow.
"So, it’s just the perfect balance, kasi he brings out the old me."
Lovi spoke with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in an exclusive interview at the 17th floor of GMA Network Center last Thursday, September 21.
She also narrated one incident when Chris literally pushed her to have a good time in Cassis, France.
“Tinulak niya ako sa pool! ‘Cause I said, ‘Sweetie, can you take a photo of me here?’ Sa view ng Cassis.
“Sabi niya, ‘Okay. Move forward.’
“I can’t believe I didn’t see it coming, kasi sabi niya, ‘Put your phone here. Kasi you’re always holding your phone sa picture.’ Gumanun siya.
“Sabi ko, ‘Okay.’ He said, ‘Move there, I’m gonna do a boomerang.’ So, nag-flip ako ng hair.
“Pagkaganun ko, tinulak niya ako. Slow motion talaga.
"I can’t believe na ginawa niya yun!"
Lovi later posted the video of the funny moment on her Instagram story, which gets automatically deleted after 24 hours.
Seen below is a solo photo of Lovi walking the streets of Cassis:
SUPPORTIVE BOYFRIEND. What Lovi says she appreciates even more about Chris is that he’s also very supportive of her work.
“He’s also the serious type, which is actually the perfect balance.
“Kasi nga, he’s serious, and he knows how to have fun when we have to have fun.
“Kasi ngayon, I’m all about work. I’m all about taking care of myself.
“So, he brings out the old me.”
The two were supposed to be planning another out-of-the-country trip when Lovi was offered to headline a Kapuso primetime soap slated to air before 2017 ends.
She then cited that Chris not only respects her "me" time but he also knows that "work comes first."
Lovi elaborated, "We have different careers, so we just support each other.
“He’s very supportive in everything I do. He actually helps me.
“He gives me extra pointers, and I do the same thing. So, it’s team work, I guess.”
Do they have plans to tie the knot anytime soon?
She answered, smiling, “No pressure at all.
“We’re not there yet.
“We don’t wanna pressure each other because I’m still not on that stage of my life.
"We’re on the same page that we just wanna travel the world."
