There were rumors in 2006 that Starstruck graduates Paulo Avelino and Aljur Abrenica were in a romantic relationship.
KAMI learned from ABS-CBN News that the two actors spoke on “Tonight With Boy Abunda” about the rumor.
According to Paulo, his closeness to Aljur and the other Starstruck contestants was just misinterpreted by some people.
"Ayoko na sanang alalahanin iyong mga pinagdaanan natin…
“Sabi nila, medyo malambot daw ako, na mukhang totoo naman . . . Siguro naging close din talaga lahat ng mga ka-batch namin, at siguro na mis-interpret lang ng mga tao,” Paulo said.
As for Aljur, the actor said that he just laughed off the rumor. However, he admitted to finding Paulo as “dashing” when he first saw him.
"Meron ngang gano'n. Tinawanan lang namin ni Paulo iyan…
“Noong nakita ko si Paulo, sabi ko, 'Wow, this guy, dashing.’
“Guwapo na si Paulo noon. Kumbaga sa competition, ito iyong makakalaban ko."
The Starstruck competition in 2006 was won by Aljur while Paulo was a finalist.
Both of them are now ABS-CBN artists.
They will star on the new teleserye premiering on January 15 entitled “Asintado.”
KAMI believes that Paulo and Aljur’s new show will be a big hit!
