MANILA – Four years since they last worked together, Sam Milby said he and Anne Curtis are “starting over again” in building the foundations of their friendship.

Curtis and Milby became a couple during the first quarter of 2007, but the actress broke up with him later that year to establish her “personal relationship with God.”

In 2008, the two admitted that they were exclusively dating again. However, Milby ended their relationship in November that year.

The two have remained friends since then, with Milby even saying that Curtis is his “deepest love.” However, they got the chance to work with each other again only this year since parting ways.

“Meron kaming past. Siyempre nagsimula doon sa ‘Maging Sino Ka Man.’ Four years na wala kaming project together. Masaya naman. Parang starting over again 'yung friendship namin sa ‘Dyesebel,’ tapos dito sa movie,” he said.

Milby and Curtis are co-stars in the upcoming comedy “The Gifted,” which also features Cristine Reyes.

Asked how it was like to work with his former girlfriend again, Milby said: “Siyempre si Anne, and also si Cristine are two of the most beautiful actresses in the business. Ang saya ng movie. Sana panoorin niyo po. September 3. Kakaibang comedy ito. Hindi yung tipong slap stick comedy. Dark comedy siya.”

The actor, however, seemed firm in saying a reconciliation between them is no longer possible.

“Siyempre, first off, parehas na kaming nag-move on. She’s been with her boyfriend for ilang years na. Ako happy na,” he said.

Curtis has been with her non-showbiz boyfriend, Erwan Heussaff, for over three years now.

Milby, on the other hand, has remained single. Asked if this is his choice, Milby said: “Ako kasi 30 na ako. Mas picky na ako ngayon. Kung sino ang susunod na girlfriend ko, 'yun na. Sana siya na ang papakasalan ko.”

Milby is currently being linked to Shaina Magdayao.
