Karen Reyes has found her happy place in the arms of Silent Sanctuary frontman Sarkie Sarangay, no matter the 14-year age difference.
The 21-year-old actress told PUSH in a recent interview that she didn't quite notice the sizable distance between their ages when they began dating.
She said, "Actually nagulat din ako na, ‘Ay! Ganoong taon ka na pala.’ Wala sa itsura niya noong nagkakilala kami. So nagulat ako na ganun ka-tito levels na pala siya. Ganun lang 'yung lokohan namin. Pero kasi mabait siya."
She continued, "Kasi 14 years 'yung age gap namin so, I find it mas masaya, kasi hindi ka mamomroblema na petty things pag-aawayan ninyo. [Mature] kayo pareho."
Karen added that the age difference actually works for the better, seeing as she's more mature for her age. She shared, "Ganoon ako nakikita ng tao na parang hindi ako bata mag-isip at magsalita. Kasi I’m 21 pero [I talk] like I’m 35 or something. Parang siguro nag-jive kami doon sa maturity."
