MANILA – Gerald Anderson finally broke his silence about his relationship with Bea Alonzo after it was reported that the actress unfollowed him and deleted all their photos together on social media.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Friday, Anderson admitted that he and Alonzo had a "simple misunderstanding."
"It was a simple misunderstanding. Naayos po namin personally and 'yun po 'yung imporante, to move on from this," he said.
Anderson also answered for Wurtzbach when the former Miss Universe titleholder was asked to comment on the matter.
"It was a misunderstanding. 'Yun na 'yun. Ang importante, everything is good. Everything is good," the actor said.
It is noteworthy that aside from Anderson, Alonzo also unfollowed Wurtzbach on social media. She also deleted the photo of the "My Perfect You" poster when she previously helped promote the film.
"Pia has been nothing but sobrang professional and sobrang sarap kasama. Sa first lead niya, first day pa lang, napabilib na ako sa kanya. We are just happy with the outcome. Sa personal life naman namin, okay na okay," Anderson said.
Echoing her leading man, Wurtzbach said her relationship with racecar driver Marlon Stockinger is also doing well.
"Yes, yes of course," said the beauty queen, who recently organized a surprise birthday party for her boyfriend.
Meanwhile, Anderson and Wurtzbach are elated that "My Perfect You" has already earned P136 million worldwide.
Now on its fourth week, the movie is still screening in over 100 theaters in the Philippines.
"Even over Holy Week, ang saya kasi ang dami pa ring nanonood. Ang ganda ng mga reactions, ng comments nila. Nakakataba ng puso. We are happy kasi siyempre pinaghirapan namin lahat 'yan," Anderson said.
Wurtzbach, for her part, said: "Masaya na ako. Okay na ako. Ito lang naman ang gusto ko, alam naman ng lahat, na magkaroon ng movie with Star Cinema and na magustuhan ng mga tao 'yung story and for the movie also to do well. Since all of that is happening, okay na ako."
Directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, "My Perfect You" centers on Burn (Anderson), a broken-hearted man looking to start over, and Abi (Wurtzbach), a hostel owner whom he meets while on vacation.
While the teaser showed Burn exasperated by the ubiquitous and overbearing Abi, it also offers a glimpse of the two finally getting along and eventually falling in love.
Their chemistry, it appears, will be sprinkled with humor, thanks to the combination of Abi's boisterous personality and Burn's pensive, brooding mood.
"My Perfect You" is not only the first time Wurtzbach and Anderson are paired onscreen, it's also their first time working with Garcia-Molina, regarded as a box-office-hit director known for her relatable takes on rom-coms.
