“We’re good friends No [special relationship]. I’m just here to enjoy life and be single,” she said.

This was echoed by Cuenca, adding that he is excited to see Poe because it has been a while since they last spent time together.

"Nandito ako to support the movie, siyempre Lovi is a really good friend. Medyo matagal ko na siyang hindi nakikita kasi busy. I’m excited to see her. I’m excited to see the movie as well,” he said.

In her previous interviews, Cuenca refused to confirm or deny if he is really courting the actress.

"When it comes to dating, my personal life, kilala niyo ako kapag handa na ako, there's no feeling better than to be free, 'yung wala kang tinatago. But then that comes at the right time and right place. Kapag handa na ako I will talk about it pero sa ngayon balato niyo muna ito sa akin," Cuenca said.

Aside from Cuenca, his former girlfriend Melissa Ricks was also reportedly at the premiere night.

Reports said Ricks was at the event to support her friend Empress Schuck, who is also part of the movie.

Asked what he thinks that he and Ricks are at the same place, Cuenca said: “That’s very good. I haven’t seen her. Mag-best friends naman talaga si Empress and si Mel so why not?”

Poe, for her part, said everyone, including Ricks, is welcome to watch their movie.
