Five months since they first made their public appearance as a couple, Jones said her relationship with Rosales continues to thrive with "honesty, communication and trust."

"He's just amazing. I'm smitten. Communication is important, being able to open with each other, and having the same interests, that's very important as well. We get to bond a lot over that stuff," Jones told ABS-CBN News on Thursday.

In earlier interviews, Jones shared that just like Rosales, she is an avid surfer, pointing to beaches as the "best thing" about the Philippines.

A Filipino-British model, Jones grew up in Australia, where she had just gone on vacation before returning to the country to attend to professional engagements.

'Taking notes'

"I came back from Australia, and now I'm back to work mode at the moment," said Jones, who is one of the models of clothing brand Wrangler.

"In terms of the business, he's helped me to learn to be myself, to shine, and to just enjoy it and have fun with it," Jones said, referring to Rosales, who is also busy as one of the most sought-after actors on TV.

Asked if she intends on following suit as an actress, Jones said she continues to learn more on the craft by taking workshops and "taking notes" from her celebrity boyfriend.

"He's very supportive, I'm actually taking acting workshops now. It's fun. I watch a lot of his movies and 'Dahil sa Pag-Ibig.' I'm learning a lot, I'm taking notes. I cry in all of his movies," said the TV host, who shared she is now studying speaking fluent Tagalog.

Quizzed on roles onscreen she would like to portray, Jones said: "I haven't thought about it. But if opportunities come along, I would love to look at each one. It depends. If the right one comes along, then I'll definitely start."
