MANILA, Philippines - Actor Enchong Dee denied reports saying he is courting young actress Julia Montes.

In a press conference on ABS-CBN's series "Maria La Del Barrio," Dee said that he is not yet wooing the actress.

He said he is still waiting for the actress to turn 17 next year.

"Ganoon pa din. Hinahantay ko lang siyang mag-birthday para maging OK na," Dee said.

"Hindi [ko pa nililigawan], doon pa lang, kapag-nag-birthday na," he added.

The actor said he's just enjoying his friendship with Montes, one of the lead stars of ABS-CBN's defunct hit TV series "Mara Clara."

Dee is currently taping for Book 2 of "Maria La Del Barrio," which has been extended until February 2012.
