- Kapuso stars Julie Anne San Jose and Benjamin Alves have been rumoured to be dating since July, which the actor verified over two weeks ago
- It was San Jose’s turn to confirm their status in a recent press conference
- Asia’s Pop Sweetheart shared that they have a lot in common, and is happy that Alves came in at the right time in her life
Julie Ann San Jose is at the right place and at the right time – not only did she renew her contract with GMA recently, she also confirmed that she is dating Benjamin Alves.
During the press conference of ‘Sunday Pinasaya’, an afternoon variety show that she appears in, she shared that she and the ‘Sa Piling ni Nanay’ actor have gone out on a couple of dates and found that they have a lot in common.
“Una, mahilig siya mag-compose ng poems. Ako kasi, noon pa ako mahilig sa ganyan. Kaya nakakatuwang isipin na there’s somebody out there pala na nakakahiligan ang pag-compose ng poems,” she said.
(First, he likes to compose poems. I like those [poems] since before, so that’s why I find it nice that there’s somebody out there who likes doing so.)
Alves’ educational background might be the cause of his interest – the model/actor took up English Literature at the University of Guam in 2012, where he graduated summa cum laude.
“Tapos mahilig din po siya sa music. Pareho ang mga gusto naming singers. We really jive and we can talk about anything. It’s nice lang to be with somebody na nakakausap mo sa iba’t ibang bagay,” she added.

(And he also likes music. We have the same taste in singers. We really jive and we can talk about anything. It’s just nice to be with somebody you can talk to on a lot of things.)
Her parents have also approved of Alves since she has met their request that she finish her studies first before she can entertain any suitors. She graduated last May from Angelicum College with a degree in Mass Communications.

“It just so happens na dumating nga si Benjamin. Parang he came at the right time in my life. Masaya lang ako because Benj is a nice and interesting person. Importante sa akin ay gusto siya ng parents ko. They like him right away kasi hindi lang daw siya guwapo kundi mabait at edukado pa.”
(It just so happens that Benjamin came into my life. It’s as if he came at the right time in my life. I’m happy because Benj is a nice and interesting person. It’s important that my parents like him too. They like him right away because not only is he handsome but he’s also kind and educated.)
Alves, who appears in a variety of shows in the network, is also known for having one of the most chiselled bodies in the industry.
When the singer/actress was asked if she also notices his abs, she laughingly answered that she does not – unless he is topless.

“Hindi ko naman po napapansin ang mga abs ni Benj, kasi nakadamit naman siya kapag lumalabas kami! Unless shirtless siya kapag magkasama kami, mapapansin ko.”
(I don’t even notice Benj’s abs because he wears a shirt whenever we go out! Unless he’s shirtless when we’re together, then I will notice.)

However, she disclosed that his eyes were the first thing she noticed about him.

“Una kong napansin kay Benj ay ang mga mata niya. Kasi sabi nga nila, the eyes are the windows of our soul, di ba? Sa mata mo makikita yung pagiging genuine ng isang tao. Madali mong nakikita ang nararamdaman ng tao through the eyes. Kaya para sa akin, very expressive ang mga mata niya,” she shared.
(The first thing I noticed about Benj is his eyes. Like what they always say, the eyes are the windows of our soul, right? It is through the eyes that we see if a person is being genuine. It is easier to see how a person feels through the eyes. For me, his eyes are very expressive.)
Since she said that he is fully clothed when they go out, her attention immediately goes to his eyes.
The two were rumoured to be dating last month after Alves’ failed attempt to woo ‘Encantadia’ star Glaiza de Castro. However, these rumours were put to rest when the actor verified their relationship status two weeks ago.-Kami Media
