MANILA – Actor Matteo Guidicelli has set the record straight that there is really nothing romantic going on between him and singer-actress Sarah Geronimo.
Rumors linking the two Kapamilya stars began when Guidicelli and Geronimo had a series of shows in the United States in June.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News at the sidelines of the pictorial for his upcoming series “Galema,” Guidicelli shrugged off rumors that he and Geronimo are already a couple.
“Wala talaga. We are just friends. I’m going to say that again, we are just friends,” he said.
Guidicelli also commented on a photo circulating where he is seen with a group of people supposedly at Geronimo’s house.
“We are just friends. It was her birthday so I passed by. We celebrated her birthday,” he said.
In two separate interviews, both actress Jessy Mendiola and actor Gerald Anderson said they have no problems if it is true that Guidicelli and Geronimo are dating.
Mendiola also said she is happy for Guidicelli because Geronimo has been the actor’s long-time crush.
Mendiola was Guidicelli’s former special someone, while Anderson courted Geronimo for a while in the past.
Asked whether his crush on Geronimo was developed further after the US tour, Guidicelli said: “Wala, [walang rekindling talaga]. We are just friends. I don’t want to drag her into anything else.”
Guidicelli said he’d rather concentrate on his upcoming soap with “Agua Bendita” co-star Andi Eigenmann.
“After fuve years, kami na naman ang magkasama. Andi and I, we’ve changed a lot, we’ve matured a lot as people, as actors. It’s very different this time around but siyempre 'yung ugali namin is still the same,” he said.
Guidicelli said he is looking forward to taping “Galema” because the story is totally different from “Agua Bendita” where he and Eigenmann fist worked together.
“Yung mga characters namin, sobrang iba dito. Si Andi may dalawang ahas, ako naman sundalo. 'Yung character ko dito is a tough guy, ibang level,” he said.
