MANILA – Actor Sam Milby admitted that he has now set his eyes on actress Jessy Mendiola.
In an interview with “The Buzz” last Friday, Milby said he likes Mendiola because of her simplicity and beauty.
“Nililigawan ko si Jessy. She’s aware. I did let her know my intentions, yes. I like her, she’s beautiful. I like her simplicity. Hindi siya maarte,” he said.
While some people think Mendiola is too young for him, Milby said: “I think a lot of times she’s misunderstood too. Masyado siyang bata pero she’s mature for her age. I can’t say na I know her that well but the times that I’ve hung out with her have been fun.”
Mendiola is currently 20 years old, while Milby is 29.
Meanwhile, Mendiola exclusively told “The Buzz” that she sees nothing wrong if she allows Milby to get to know her more.
“Single ako at single siya so bakit naman hindi. Pero we go out lang naman and hang. Nothing super serious since alam niya priority ko ang career ko. He’s a very sweet and nice guy so I don’t want to close any doors naman and why not let him get the chance na makilala ako and ganoon din ako sa kanya,” she said.
“Let’s see how it goes na lang,” the actress added.
Milby and Mendiola first worked together for a “Maalaala Mo Kaya” episode which aired last year.
Months ago, Milby admitted that he was “hanging out” with actress Shaina Magdayao, while Mendiola recently made the headlines after her nipped-in-the-bud romance with Matteo Guidicelli.
Milby said he’s been courting Mendiola for two weeks now.
