KAPAMILYA actress Ellen Adarna has admitted turning down actor Ejay Falcon who courted her while doing the sexy drama series “Pasion de Amor” on ABS-CBN.
Asked if she really rejected Falcon, Adarna said: “I think so. Na realize ko na hindi pa talaga ako ready.”
Following the rejection, reports said that the two stars felt uncomfortable with each other in some of their scenes.
But both remained good friends later.
“Basted ba pagkasabi? Pero ngayon okay na kami, ‘yun lang ang pinagpapasalamat ko,” said Falcon, during an interview in “Bandila” news program.
The 28-year-old hunk actor said that he is still hoping that they could still work together in future teleseryes.
When asked if he’s looking for a new love, the actor said: “Ang love kusa lang naman ‘yan dumadating. Hindi naman ‘yan kailangang hanapin. Siguro in the near future dapat din paglaanan ‘yan ng panahon.”
The Cebuana beauty also admitted in a recent interview in PEP that she does not want to fall in love at this time yet.
“Even until now, ayokong… I hate love. Wala ako sa mood,” the actress said.
“Actually, nung time na yun, kaka-break ko pa lang sa boyfriend ko and then I was open to date different guys. That’s why I dated Ejay, to be fair with others. So, I realized na hindi pa talaga ako ready kaya I cut him,” said Adarna, 27, who plays Sarita Elizondo in the afternoon series.
Falcon rose to fame when he became the big winner in “Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus” in 2008 while Adarna was a fashion model who became a YouTube sensation for her boxing video.
