At this point, JC de Vera prefers to play it low-key when it comes to his love life.
“Well, let’s just say that it’s not important to me to make it public. People may see me going out with someone but I guess, it’s normal for a guy like me. But that doesn’t necessarily confirm that I have a relationship, right?” he says.
Many wonder why he is secretive where his personal state is concerned now.
“Actually, I’m not that secretive. It’s just a matter of respecting the privacy of those people whom I see and interact with that are not party of the entertainment industry.”
He sounds as if he doesn’t want someone from the ‘biz again for a steady.
“Ha-ha-ha! I can’t really say. But if possible, it’s better to be with someone who’s not in the limelight. We see a lot of showbiz couples breaking up no matter how hard they try to keep their relationship going due to intrigues and rumours.”
Speaking of love life, some quarters are curious if he didn’t court Jessy Mendiola at the time when they were doing the hit soap You’re My Home on ABS-CBN. They look good together and would make a great pair. While they’re together now in the gag show Banana Sundae, the sexy lass is open about her romantic involvement with TV host-actor Luis Manzano.
“For the record, I haven’t attempted to court Jessy,” reveals JC. “We’re just friends. It’s not that she’s got no appeal on me. In fact, she’s very attractive and any guy would get smitten by her. But as I’ve said earlier, as much as possible, I opt for someone who’s not from showbiz to avoid all the controversies.”
When it comes to his acting craft, the handsome lad wishes to have more variety in the projects he does, that’s why his inclusion in “Banana Sundae” is truly a welcome thing.
“Versatility is a huge advantage to stay long in the scene. In my case, I’ve been more associated doing serious roles so it’s a breather to see me in a gag show where everything is so light. It serves as a good balancing act.”
He is thankful that he didn’t have a hard time adjusting to his fellow cast members.
“On the contrary, they made me feel at ease right away. We’re supportive of one another in the show. If someone did a good job, he gets congratulated by everybody. Our friendship is solid and with them, I found a second family,” ends JC.
After getting swell reviews for his acting in Barcelona opposite Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla reveals he would prefer a much lighter vehicle for his next big screen assignment.
“Yes, actually, Kathryn and I share the same view,” he states. “What we did in Barcelona was good enough to show both our fans and critics that we can be convincing in delineating mature and serious roles. I think it would be too much if we’ll appear in another heavy drama. We might as well make a lighter project but still, with a heart. I don’t worry in that aspect since Star Cinema is very good at that.”
KathNiel die-hards are asking what their next on screen projects will be.
“Well, much to their delight, we are advised to make one soap and another film next year so, they better watch out for these. This early, Kathryn and I are excited with said materials. They are fresh ones sure to excite our followers. For sure, they would offer a new level of challenge for us!”
Interestingly, the popular heartthrob announces his desire to go back to school.
“That’s right! It’s a wondrous feeling to know and discover a lot of things. In a formal school, the process of learning is continuous. I want to take up Psychology or Philosophy. That would be cool,” states Daniel.
