It was an almost love affair for JM de Guzman and Barbie Imperial.
On "Tonight with Boy Abunda" yesterday, April 10, JM enumerated the reasons why the timing was all wrong for him and his "Araw Gabi" leading lady Barbie Imperial.
"I tried to pursue her after nung show," JM related. "I told her na, 'Baka pwede nating i-try? Pero magkaibigan muna tapos tingnan natin kung may mangyari or something.'"
JM then revealed that it was their responsibilities as actors that hindered them to be more than friends.
"'Yung pressure nung trabaho sa kanya and sa akin. Siya kaka-launch lang, ako kakabalik ko lang, so in short hindi siya nag-work."
He also clarified that they shared a mutual understanding of the situation and that he never gave the younger actress false hopes.
"Hindi naman po ako ganoon tsaka hindi naman siya kaganun-ganun."
JM stars in "Last Fool Show" with Arci Munoz. It is now showing in cinemas nationwide.
