MANILA, Philippines – Even after she came out as a lesbian, singer-actress Aiza Seguerra is keeping her doors open to being paired with a male actor -- but just on screen.

Speaking before entertainment reporters on Thursday, Seguerra said she enjoys working opposite actor Tom Rodriguez in the ABS-CBN daytime series “Be Careful With My Heart.”
Seguerra said it feels better to have a love team partner now that she is no longer confused about her sexual orientation.
“Actually suwerte po ni Tom (laughs). Nakakatuwa kasi okay pala na magkaroon ka ng love team sa mga panahon na alam mo na ang totoo mong sexualidad. Kasi noong time ni Spencer (Reyes), parang 'ewww.' Ngayong alam ko na, bromance na lang talaga ito,” she explained.
On “Be Careful With My Heart,” Seguerra plays the character of Cristina Rose, who had a child with Rodriguez’s character, Jeff.
Asked if they are ready to have a kissing scene, Rodriguez said in jest: “Kay Aiza, siyempre. Kung sa akin lang, kung sa akin lang. Kaso hindi ako trip nito eh. Ayaw nito eh. Kahit mag-request ako.”
Meanwhile, Seguerra shared her thoughts on the issue of sexuality amid the light moments.
“Puwede ka namang magpakababae kahit na hindi ka mukhang babae. Puwede ka mag-celebrate ng pagkababae kahit nagmamahal ka ng kapwa babae. Being a woman doesn’t necessarily mean na you love a guy. Being a woman is about respecting yourself and empowering yourself,” she said. – from a report by Marie Lozano, ABS-CBN News
