Gerald Anderson says he wants to be professional with his leading ladies
Gerald Anderson proved that he has what it takes to be the next leading man with his convincing portrayal in the film Catch Me… I’m In Love, where he starred opposite Sarah Geronimo. Gerald earned positive feedback from viewers and critics alike for the movie. “Siyempre sobrang masaya na ganun ang tingin nila. Mas nai-inspire akong magtrabaho pa dahil sa lahat ng success na nangyayari,” he beamed.
However, many wondered that in spite of their evident chemistry and having become friends when they did the movie, the two never exchanged contact numbers. Gerald justified that they both wanted to be professional and continued that he and Sarah always talk whenever they bump into each other. Besides, Gerald said that it was their first time to work together and he is happy that he became friends with the Pop Princess.
When Push.com.ph asked Gerald if his reluctance was the result of what happened to him and former leading lady Kim Chiu, he replied, “’Di naman. Para sa akin trabaho, eh. Gusto kong maging professional. Ayokong magkailangan sa leading ladies ko. Kumbaga ‘yung priority ko ‘yung maging kaibigan ko ‘yung leading lady ko. Kilalanin ko muna. Hindi naman [dahil] leading lady ko liligawan ko na. Parang ang pangit naman no’n.”
Gerald also clarified that he is currently single but happy because of his successful career. He added that he is not closing his doors on a possible love-life but it will come at the proper time for it.
The actor also said that he and Kim are still very good friends. Gerald added that he is very thankful that they were able to preserve the friendship in spite of the controversies. “Siyempre maganda [ang maging friends pa rin kami]. ‘Yun talaga ang habol namin ni Kim, eh.”
While Gerald confirmed that he and Kim recently had dinner together, he did not go into details. “Basta tapos na ‘yon sinagot ko na ‘yon. Hindi siya secret dinner. It’s a friendly dinner para sa birthday niya,” he said.
He also said that he is open to working with Bea Alonzo, who was previously romantically linked to him. “Kung maganda ‘yung proyekto bakit hindi? Trabaho din ‘yon,” he reasoned and added that he is not bothered if it would result to controversies because it is bound to happen regardless who his leading lady is.
