Both romantic, heartthrobs Gerald Anderson and Daniel Padilla sure know how to melt the hearts of their real-life and on-screen partners Maja Salvador and Kathryn Bernardo, respectively.
Gerald made his girlfriend Maja Salvador giddy when he stepped on stage during her concert at the Music Museum over the weekend. He joined Maja while she was singing Demi Lovato’s hit “Skyscraper.” It’s one of rare times they’ve shown sweetness to each other publicly.
Maja turned emotional in expressing her happiness being Gerald’s girl.
“Madamot man po kami sa mga interviews namin or kung saan man, pero masaya po ako na grabe niya ako protektahan,” she said right after the number. “Kung puwede ko lang po sabihin ng detalyado, pero siyempre sa amin na lang po ’yun. Pero napaka-suwerte ko po. Sobrang suwerte ko po.”
In an interview the next day, Gerald said weathering storms together has toughened them.
Like Gerald, hot celeb Daniel knows how to keep surprises secret till he springs them on his onscreen partner and rumored girlfriend Kathryn Bernardo.
“Hindi ko nabubuking. Siya mismo ang nagsasabi na ‘Alam mo, may ibibigay ako.’ Sabi ko, ‘Hindi ka na naman nakatiis no?’” she said on “The Buzz,” Sunday.
Among Daniel’s special gifts to her were a necklace with heart-shaped pendant, and two dogs.
They dismissed issues linking them to their c0-stars in “She’s Dating The Gangster” particularly to Sofia Louise Andres.
“Hindi naman ito ’yung first time po na binigyan kami ng ka-love triangle pero first time na with Sofia. And si Sofia, nakasama ko na siya sa ‘Princess and I’ – kapatid ko siya, kilala ko po talaga siya,” Kathryn said.
She continued, “So nu’ng sa kanya binigay ’yung role, alam ko na sobrang saya niya kasi matagal din po siyang nag-hintay. Kaya kung sinasabi nilang may issue, para ma-clear, wala talaga. Lahat kami dito sa ‘She’s Dating The Gangster,’ para kaming family talaga.”
Daniel appealed to their supporters to refrain from being negative towards their co-actors.
“’Wag po tayong mang-away ng ganong mga tao. Hindi porket nakakasama namin ni Kathryn, aawayin. Hindi po ’yun maganda, siyempre. Wala naman po ’yun, lahat po kami magkakaibigan sa showbiz.”
Matindi pa rin ang pag-aagawan para sa puso ni Dyesebel ng mga karakter nina Sam Milby at Gerald Anderson. Sino nga kaya ang mas matimbang sa dalawa?
There might have been some awkwardness in the beginning but it wasn’t to hinder former reel and real-life pair Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson from carrying on and finishing a recent project together.
“It was fine, parang walang nangyari,” Kim told ABS-CBN News about working with Gerald again. “Parang, ‘Ano ba ’yan, ilang taon na ’yung nakalipas na ’yun, kalimutan na natin ’yun.’”
She further shared that while they were both ill at ease during the earlier part of shoot for the TV commercial, “nung tanghali na hanggang hapon, parang okay na.”
She added, “At least maganda ’yung pangyayaring ganun, ’di ba? All’s well that ends well.”
The actress said they were able to catch up in between takes, relating, “Tengga-tengga habang setup so kwento-kwento lang sa mga buhay-buhay.”
Proving that they have really moved on, Kim declared, “Tapusin na natin ang drama sa life; pang teleserye lang ’yun.”
Meanwhile, Gerald’s younger brother, Ken Anderson, is about to follow in his footsteps, having made public his intent to pursue a career in showbiz.
“I guess I was just inspired from what he does and what he has,” Ken told ABS-CBN News.
Ken shared that Gerald called him and said, ‘Why don’t you come to the Philippines and try it here?’ I said, ‘Alright.’”
What sets him apart from his older brother – who started out as a “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate – is his acting roots, having actually taken up drama classes while he was in the United States.
Ken also has no problem with the inevitable comparison with his older brother. “He’s a good actor. To be compared to that, I’ll take it any day,” he said.
