Roxanne Guinoo says she doesn't have anything to do with Sid Lucero's breakup with his non-showbiz girlfriend named Rosy. Sid is her co-star in Ligaw na Bulaklak.
The young actress was interviewed by the entertainment media last night, October 6, after the press conference of Banana Split at the 13th floor of ELJ Building, ABS-CBN Compound, in Quezon City.
"'Yong problema po ng girlfriend niya, ayaw ko pong makialam," the 22-year-old actress said. "Pero nagkaroon din talaga ng issue kasi knowing na 'yong girl, Rosy ang name ng girlfriend niya, hindi niya maintidihan 'yong sitwasyon—trabaho ni Sid, showbiz, maraming nami-meet, magulo. Naaapektuhan 'yong relationship, damay-damay na 'yan, e."
Roxanne also believed that the 31st Gawad Urian Best Actor is different from other actors in show business. "Naniniwala ako kay Sid. Si Sid kasi matinong tao. So, alam na niya ang dapat niyang gawin. Alam niya, kunwari, kung may girlfriend siya, lumulugar iyan."
Although it has been reported that Sid has already broken up with his girlfriend, Roxanne was firm in saying that she has no romantic relationship with her screen partner.
"Ngayon lang talaga kami nag-start mag-bonding. Sobrang, minsan, kapag nag-uusap kami, ‘O, tara, sabay tayo pumunta ng party,' ganyan-ganyan," said Roxanne.
A reporter then asked, "Paano kung ligawan ka?"
She replied, "Basta kapag may nanliligaw, dapat walang sabit. Ako naman, ine-entertain ko naman, e, kapag meron nanliligaw, so ine-enjoy ko lang.
"Ine-enjoy ko lang 'yong company ng isang tao. Hindi mo naman agad-agad masasabi 'yong tao, alam mo yun, hindi mo masasabi. Nabubuo 'yong friendship, so doon mo mare-realize kung hindi ka pa handa o hanggang kaibigan lang."
When asked what Sid's chances are to be her partner in real life, Roxanne replied, "Three pa lang. Ngayon pa lang kami nagba-bonding talaga."
PAST BOYFRIENDS. Roxanne was also asked about her last boyfriend, Jake Cuenca. The young actress said that she seldom sees him and they no longer keep in touch.
Whenever the former lovers meet, for example, at a social gathering, Roxanne said it would be, "Hi, Hello lang. Wala naman din kaming pag-uusapan. Alangan namang pag-usapan pa namin 'yong kanila. Sa kanila na 'yon." She was referring to Jake and the current apple of his eye, Bea Alonzo.
Roxanne admitted that she sometimes sees them together. "Sanay na po akong makita. Every Sunday, kapag ASAP nakikita ko naman sila, laging sa ABS-CBN."
Does she get affected when she sees them?
"Wala na. Siyempre nagkaroon naman ng incident na parang, ‘Ay, oo nga, totoo pala 'yong tsismis.' Minsan totoo pala talaga ang tsismis."
She added, ""Wala nang pain, graduate na tayo diyan."
The Banana Split mainstay said there's also no need for her to be close with her ex-boyfriend. She explained, "Ako naman, ganun, kapag tapos na, hindi mo naman na kailangan pang i-close pa 'yong tao. Kung hindi mo inaway 'yong tao, huwag na."
Roxanne's attitude towards Jake is the opposite of her regard for another former boyfriend, Joross Gamboa.
She's open to the idea of working with him again when his rumored guest appearance in Ligaw na Bulaklak happens.
"Si Joross, party people 'yan, e. Party people meaning party friends," said Roxanne.
Roxanne has become good friends with Joross. In fact, Roxanne told the media, when they see each other, "Nagre-reminisce na nga kami, e. Ganun na kami ka-open."
Roxanne's Ligaw na Bulaklak is set to end this month. She will still be seen though in the weekly all-girls gag show Banana Split, which will start on Saturday, after Maalaala Mo Kaya on ABS-CBN.
