In a no-holds-barred interview with Boy Abunda yesterday, October 31, on "Tonight With Boy Abunda," Maja Salvador explained why she found it hard to take leading lady roles alongside her good friend John Lloyd Cruz.
"Kunwari po may ino-offer sa kanya, or sa akin. Parang pareho kami...may pag-aalangan sa pagtanggap," she shared. "Kasi nga, kapag kailangan ng intimate scenes...paano mo gagawin?"
Maja previously worked with John Lloyd in the 2007 film "One More Chance" where she played his post-Basha girlfriend, Trisha.
"Medyo nahirapan na ako noon," Maja admitted. "Kasi ang tawagan na namin noon, 'Itay' and 'Baby Girl' tapos bago namin kuhanin 'yung mga kung anumang eksena na napanood niyo sa 'One More Chance,' hindi ko siya kinakausap."
She explained further, "Tapos nagsusumbong siya sa handler (Nenette Demilio) namin, na 'Tita si Maja hindi ako pinapansin, hindi ako kinakausap sa set.' Tapos magagalit sa akin 'yung handler, 'Bakit di mo daw kinakausap yung Itay mo sa set?'"
To which Maja would reply, "Sa'yo nanggaling, 'Itay' tapos hahalikan ko ng maraming beses."
Maja and John Lloyd have faced ceaseless relationship rumors in the past couple of months, all of which they have continually shut down.
The actress has admitted to dating again, though she would not name the lucky guy – at least for now.
