Veteran actress Bea Alonzo has admitted that her relationship with actor Gerald Anderson did not work out because of wrong timing.
“Wrong timing talaga.You and me against the world talaga. We were judged and hindi namin nadefend ’yung mga sarili namin. Pero you have to realize that was six years ago. A lot has changed,” said Alonzo, 28, during an interview on “Tonight With Boy Abunda” on ABS-CBN.
In 2010, Anderson and Alonzo became an item but their relationship never blossomed. Following their failed relationship on the same year, they became strangers, the actors said.
Both actors are single again these days. Anderson has broken up with actress Maja Salvador while Alonzo has split with actor Zanjoe Marudo.
Asked about the lessons learned in 2010, Anderson, 27, said: “Ang sa akin, kung kaya mong i-sacrifice kahit masakit, how to be a man about hard situations, how to handle it, and how to protect the person you love.”
“Kung kakausapin ko yung 2010 version ko ngayon, sasabihin ko ‘Brod, lumaban ka pa,” Anderson added.
Alonzo said: “Sad ‘yun kasi everything happened so fast kaya ngayon very, very careful kami. Nasa level kami ng friendship ngayon na sobrang ok.” She also learned that love does not have to be hard.
When asked to choose between love and career, Anderson said: “Mahirap pero doon po muna ako sa career because ’yun ang nagbibigay sa akin ng livelihood ko.”
“Depende rin siguro yan sa panahon or kung saang estado ka ba right now,” said Alonzo.
Anderson and Alonzo, stars of the new movie “How To Be Yours,” also revealed their secrets to capture their hearts.
“Sa akin, ’yung simple lang, ’yung masarap kang kasama, masaya kang kasama. You’ve got to be an understanding woman to understand this kind of life I have,” Anderson said.
“Someone who will let me be me. Ang hirap kasi at this point in my life, I don’t want to pretend anymore. I don’t wanna be like somebody na hindi naman ako ’yung nakikita. So ’yun, gusto kong maging ako lang. Ang sarap maging ikaw lang,” said Alonzo.
The actress said that the plan for them to make a movie has been discussed for many years now. It is only now that the project materialized.
