MANILA, Philippines – Actress Julia Montes on Sunday hinted that actor Coco Martin stands a chance if ever he decides to pursue her once she turns 18.

“[On the scale of] one to 10 -- ah nine,” she said in a live interview with “The Buzz.”

Just last week, Martin explained that he does not want to get into something which he feels he has no chance of success.

“Bago kasi ako pumasok sa isang bagay, sinisigurado ko muna na may laban. Siyempre sabi ko nga ayaw ko namang mapapahiya ang sarili ko,” he said at the time.

“Sabi ko nga siguro para sa akin, kung 'yung lola ni Julia ang tatanungin, nakakakita na ako na may puntos na. Pero kay Julia, pinakikiramdaman ko pa… Kapag nararamdaman ko na na puwede, na mukhang uubra, bakit hindi?” he added.

Hearing what Montes has just revealed, Martin only gave a shy but meaningful smile.

Prodded if he is really seeking the approval of Montes’ grandmother, Martin said: “Kaya ako close sa lola niya kasi, siyempre siya nakakasama niya ang lola niya sa set. Ako hindi. Ang nangyayari, mas nagiging close kami ng lola niya. Kanya kanyang pamamaraan.”

Meanwhile, the actor did not deny that he prevents Montes from wearing outfits that are too sexy.

“Ganun naman po ako eh. Bilang katrabaho, concerned ako sa katrabaho ko lalo na sa leading lady ko,” he said.

Martin and Montes first worked together in the phenomenal series “Walang Hanggan.” However, they only became romantically linked after the show.

Currently, they are promoting their upcoming movie “A Moment in Time,” which will be shown in theaters nationwide on February 13.

Asked why they think they have a strong onscreen chemistry, Martin said: “Never kami nag-usap na ‘O ganito ang gagawin natin.' Wala eh. Kahit kanina sa script, ayaw namin pag-aralan. Gusto ko lagi kung magsasalita ako, galing sa puso at sa isip ko. Later on, kung ano 'yung nararamdaman ko, ‘yun ang makikita nila eh.”
