In a rare instance, John Lloyd Cruz talked about the impact of his breakup with Angelica Panganiban.
When they ended their relationship, Angelica’s hugot lines on Banana Sundae and other ABS-CBN shows became viral since they mostly pertain to being alone and having problems with an ex-boyfriend.
When John Lloyd was asked if he felt that he was being targeted by these hugot lines, he said with a smile, “I don’t think intentional yun for me.”
Select members of the press had the chance to interview John Lloyd during the press conference of Just The 3 Of Us held yesterday, May 1, at the Ayala Terraces in Fairview.
The actor reiterated, “I don’t believe intentional yun for me.”
In a separate interview, Banana Sundae mainstay John Prats pointed out that Angelica did not come up with these “bitter” hugot lines.

PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) took this opportunity to ask John Lloyd how he moved on from his breakup with Angelica Panganiban.
He said, “You have to be in love with life. Hindi naman kailangan…
“Paano kung wala kang girlfriend, wala kang boyfriend, madilim na buhay mo?”
The 32-year-old actor admitted that he learned valuable lessons that could help him improve in the future.
“Every trial naman should be instrumental in your becoming a better person. Choose this opportunity to become better in life.
“I’d like to focus on that kaysa yung tinatanong mo sa akin kung paano ako naka-move on.”
He added, “Ang hirap naman ng tanong mo kasi babalikan ko yung mga sandaling yun.
“I’d rather focus on… I have a beautiful life. I’d rather see it as an opportunity to become a better person.”
Would he say that he is happy now?
John Lloyd replied, “I’m learning. I’m working on it, di ba? Yun naman ang importante: not to give up.”
Is he ready to fall in love again?
He asked in return, “When was the last time you fell in love? Hindi naman natin nalalaman yun, di ba?
“Alangan namang sabihin ko sa iyo, maybe sa Pasko, mai-in love ako. That’s BS.”
