Although they are extremely close now, Barbie Imperial didn’t hesitate to admit that she was once a super fangirl to Paul Salas in the past.
In an interview with PEP earlier today, June 5, the young star mentioned that she used to tweet the actor to follow her back on Twitter because she had such a huge crush on him.
“Noong di pa ako nag-aartista, fan niya po talaga ako,” she said. “Siyempre [masaya] noong una kaming nagkita... Siyempre po, kapag fan ka lang talaga, hindi ka makakalapit nang harapan sa idol mo. So ngayon, sobrang saya, kasi parang dati po inaabangan lang namin siya sa airport. Tapos ngayon, nakakaharap na namin siya, kaharap talaga.”
Barbie also mentioned that they’re only close friends right now. Asked whether Paul is already courting her, she simply said, “Mas maganda po kung sa kanya manggaling.”
In a previous interview, Barbie related that she’s not rushing into anything and is just enjoying her friendship with Paul.
“Sa ngayon po wala pa po kasi marami po nangyari before na, na siyempre natuto po ako sa mga nangyari before so siyempre ‘wag munang madaliin ‘yung mga love-love ganoon po,” she said.
Barbie and Paul worked together in the 2015 Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil starrer “Everyday I Love You.”
