Car racer turned actor Matteo Guidicelli has described young actress Maja Salvador as the "sweetest thing." The two are paired in the upcoming ABS-CBN fantasy series Wansapanataym Presents Inday Balitaw.
"She is amazing. I've worked with her. She is the sweetest thing. She is so beautiful. She is so talented. I wish I could work with her again," the 20-year-old said in an interview with PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) during the Cosmo Bachelor Bash last Thursday, September 9, at the World Trade Center, Pasay City.
Maja also attended the Cosmo Bachelor Bash. Looking fetching in a plain white spaghetti top, jeans and sky-high heels, she was seated in the front row, facing the ramp.
She was silent the whole time but when it was Matteo's time to walk the ramp, she stood up and waved her iPad which flashed the words, "Hot Matteo!"
Matteo, who saw Maja, stopped in his tracks and waved.
Maja did the same thing for Sam Milby, her co-star in the teleserye Precious Heart Romances Presents Impostor. This time, her iPad read: "Rawr Sam!"
When asked if he had invited Maja to the show, Matteo said the 22-year-old actress initially said she couldn't attend the event.
"She surpised me. Because I invited her and she said she wasn't coming and then I saw her," he said.
Asked if they were on a date at the Star Magic Ball last September 5, Matteo clarified that it just a "friendly date."
Will he and Maja go on a dinner date any time soon?
Matteo smiled and said, "Now, hindi pa po. We work together. It was just a friendly date."
After a brief pause, he added, "Any guy would be lucky to be with Maja. We'll see what happens."
