In an exclusive interview with “The Buzz” aired on Sunday, Panganiban said there is nothing romantic going on between the two of them.

“Matagal naman na kaming magkakilala. Matagal na kaming magkaibigan. Mahirap bigyan ng ibig sabihin, bigyan ng kulay. Kung ako magbibigay ng kulay, baka mag-iba. Hayaan muna natin. Hindi ko alam kung anong mayroon bukas,” she said.

Panganiban said it is sad that people are speculating since she and Cruz just went through their own individual heartbreaks.

Panganiban recently broke up with actor Derek Ramsay while Cruz just called it quits with actress Shaina Magdayao.

“Nagkatrabaho lang kami and sa ngayon hanggang doon pa lang iyon. Magkaibigan kami, yun lang yun. Kung magiging special siya, eh di makikita niyo. Malalaman niyo. Kung maging matalik kaming magkaibigan, magiging special siya,” she said.

Asked what she thinks of accusations that she and Cruz are just riding on the rumors to promote their upcoming film, Panganiban said: “Hindi naman ako naging ganoon. Hindi ko kaya maging ganoon ka-showbiz na tao.”

The actress also flatly denied that she and Cruz were seen kissing and holding hands in a public place.

“Yun yung medyo imposible na talagang mangyari. Hindi na ako yun. Hindi ko naman lubos maisip na gagawin ko yun. Eh ganoon ang mga tao eh. Kapag may gusto silang i-push, ipu-push nila. Kung doon sila magiging happy, I’m happy for them na nakakagawa sila ng mga ganyang klaseng intriga,” she said.

No reconciliation with Ramsay

Panganiban also said she is not yet ready to get into another relationship.

“Ngayon, huwag namang ganon, nakaka-conscious naman. May meaning agad? Pagod na pagod pa ang heart ko ngayon. Huwag muna," she added.

The actress, meanwhile, hinted that there is no more chance for a reconciliation between her and Ramsay.

“Wala akong ibang puwedeng daanan kundi ang path na masaya. Kapag dinala ko ang sarili ko sa malungkot, malulugmok lang ako. Alam ko naman magiging okay ako eh. I think okay naman na ako,” she said.
