One of Judy Ann Santos' more popular love teams in the 90s was with the late actor Rico Yan, and together they starred in a handful of blockbuster movies including the 1999 barkada movie "Gimik: The Reunion" directed by Laurenti Dyogi.
In a recent episode of "Magandang Buhay", Judy Ann opened up about her close bond with the actor.
"Kami ni Rico, hindi kami dumating sa point na nagkaroon kami ng relationship na more than friends. We will always say na we were more than friends but we're not lovers. Hindi kami umabot sa ganoon," she said.
She furthered, "Ramdam ko naman na nagke-care siya sa akin, ganoon din naman ako sa kanya."
The "Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes" star also shared that she and Rico were very open about their personal lives.
"With Rico kasi napaka-caring na tao, napakalambing, very vocal sa nararamdaman, kenkoy rin siya, pero hindi lang talaga kami umabot sa puntong nagkaseryosohan. But our families are close," she said.
Rico's last Star Cinema movie was Olivia Lamasan's romance-comedy "Got 2 Believe" opposite Claudine Barretto.
