Because they’ve been extra close these past few months, fans are speculating whether JM de Guzman and Angelica Panganiban have taken their friendship to the next level.
However, JM maintained on “Tonight with Boy Abunda” yesterday, April 27, that he and his “That Thing Called Tadhana” leading lady are just friends.
“Tropa po kami. Kulitan lang namin ‘yun,” he said, referring to the teasing almost-kiss photo they had earlier this month.
The actor continued that Angelica is one of his truest friends because of how she helped him get back on his feet.
“‘Yung group of friends namin, grabe nila ako suportahan, lalo na bago pa ako makalakad sa dalawa kong paa,” he said. “‘Yung concern, pagpa-prangka nila sa’kin, ‘yung mga mali ko talaga dati sinasampal nila sa mukha ko. I’m really thankful for that.”
As for his showbiz comeback after three years, JM said he’ll do his best not to let anyone down.
“Hindi na ako ulit mawawala,” he said.
JM stars in the afternoon series “Araw Gabi” alongside Barbie Imperial. It starts airing Monday, April 30.
