Are they for reel or for real?
Around 300 fans witnessed the closeness of their idols Sarah Geronimo and Gerald Anderson during the Ashrald Ultimate Fans' Day sponsored by Jollibee last March 25 at 55 Events Place in Quezon City.
Unfortunately for them, the said closeness is not a sign nor confirmation that their idols are in a romantic relationship. It is just who they have become since they became friends.
“We're very comfortable with each other and mas close kami ngayon. We're just happy na ganun kami at sana natuwa rin ang mga fans kahit papaano. In a personal level masaya kami," explained Gerald.
As for their relationship, Gerald doesn't know what the future holds for him and Sarah but he admits the rising level of their friendship excites him.
"Like what I've said at the end of the day kung friendship lang makukuha ko sa kanya panalo pa rin ako," Gerald expressed.
He also attributed their "deeper friendship" to more frequent communication. Now that “Budoy” has ended and he has yet to start a new TV project, Gerald has more time for Sarah.
"Like what I've said, she is my inspiration. For me, I enjoy kung anong inspiration binibigay sa akin ni Sarah. At dahan dahan lang. Enjoy ko lang yung moment. Siguro kaming dalawa, we enjoy the moment kung anong meron kaming dalawa. We don't pressure each other," shared Gerald.
Their continued closeness dispels rumors and intrigues that their "friendship" was a put-on to promote their past two movies. Sarah and Gerald have remained close even if the former now has a new movie with John Lloyd Cruz.
"Masaya po ako kung anong meron sa friendship namin. Totoo po yun na naging mas close po kami. Talagang iingatan ko po yung closeness na meron kami ngayon," said Sarah.
She added that she values her friendship with Gerald and has pledged that she will always be there for him. Their onscreen chemistry and popularity as a love team even brought their working relationship to a new level as product endorsers.
"Sobrang suwerte ko na nakasama ko siya sa ganitong project," Gerald said.
