In an interview, John Lloyd Cruz shares that he and ex-girlfriend Angelica Panganiban are still friends.
During a product launch for Great Taste coffee, John Lloyd Cruz his dating plans to which he says, “Hindi pa eh. Marami pang trabaho. I’m really taking my time kasi medyo may edad na rin tayo hindi na tayo puwedeng pa-date date lang. I’d rather be working than dating.” (Not as of the moment. There is still a lot of work to do. I’m really taking my time because I’m not that young anymore and I just can’t go on a lot of dates. I’d rather be working than dating.)
He also shared that he and Angelica have been messaging each other. John Lloyd was hesitant to disclose this to the media, however, because he knows that it might be used against them. He said, “Kasi alam ko na naman yung gagawin niyo dito eh. Parang pag pinag-uusapan na we’re in communication parang iba na naman yung ma-de-develop na kuwento eh. Di ba alam naman nating lahat yun. Kumbaga parang it’s normal. All but normal. Sana huwag mabigyan ng kulay or huwag mabigyan ng ibang ibig sabihin because dalawang tao kaming may pinagsamahan and hindi naman imposibleng maging magkaibigan kami” (Because I know what you’re going to do with it. A different story will be developed if I discuss that we’re in communication. Don’t we all know that. Like it’s normal. All but normal. I hope that it won’t be misconstrued or misinterpreted because we are two people who have been through something and it’s not impossible for us to be friends.)
The actor also said that he is not bothered with the “hugot lines” that the Kapamilya actress delivers for a segment of her Sunday afternoon gag show, Banana Sundae. "It’s a gag show, it wouldn’t be great if isipin ko para sa akin,” he said. “Not everything is about you, John Lloyd. Napaka-arogante naman kung isiipin ko na patama ‘yon sa akin.”
He added that, “alam ko ang totoo, alam namin ang totoo and I think that’s more than enough para hindi ko isipin ang mga gano’ng bagay.”
John Lloyd also thanked Angelica for promoting his film “Just the 3 of Us,” which also stars Kapuso actress Jennylyn Mercado and has earned P100-million on its first week.
On the topic of Angelica supporting his new movie, John Lloyd shared, “Oo nagpapasalamat ako sa kanya. Ganun naman siya ever since eh. And like I said we’re friends so parang ang friends naman nagbibigay ng suporta sa isa’t isa.” (Yes, I am thankful to her. She’s like that ever since. And like I said we’re friends so as friends we give support to each other.)
