Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz never fail to ignite (and re-ignite!) the spark whenever they’re onscreen, but we all want to know: was there ever a time they wanted to take their onscreen romance to real life?
Yes and no.
During the “Finally Found Someone” media conference today, July 14, John Lloyd revealed that although he has ~special feelings~ for Sarah, they never really had an opportunity to take things to the next level.
“Laging parang timing is not our friend, ever since. Mula ‘A Very Special Love,’ ‘You Changed My Life,’ ganun. Timing is an issue,” he said, and mentioned that he’ll probably always have that special feeling towards Sarah.
“Nago-observe lang naman ako from afar, and okay na ako dun. Basta okay siya, masaya siya… okay na ‘yun. It’s more than enough,” he said.
But even though John Lloyd talked about wrong timing, he denied that Sarah is his TOTGA (The One That Got Away).
“Hindi ako umabot sa point na sinabi ko ‘yun (si Sarah ‘yung TOTGA). Hindi ko pa nasasabi ‘yun.”
Asked what it is that make them special to each other, they both answered that it’s some sort of magic.
“Sarah has that magic na hindi mo maipaliwanag, meron siyang nagagawa sa'yo na parang kaya niyang baguhin ‘yung araw mo,” John Lloyd said.
Meanwhile Sarah shared, “Si Lloydy kasi, makita ko lang siya, natutuwa na ako. Just observing him from afar, just by looking at him, natutuwa na ako.”
“Finally Found Someone” marks Sarah and John Lloyd’s big screen reunion after four years. Directed by Theodore Boborol ("Just The Way You Are," "Vince And Kath And James"), it opens in cinemas on July 26.
