Gerald Anderson finally had his turn in the hot seat.
On "Tonight With Boy Abunda" last night, May 16, the "Between Maybes" actor confronted some of the country's most controversial assumptions about him and his lifestyle, and he did it with class and charm, as he does everything else.
First up: his playboy past.
Gerald revealed, "Nasanay na po ako [na tawaging playboy]. There was [really] a time [na] I've had that stage. Dumaan ako sa stage na 'yun."
Second: his friendship with ex-girlfriend Kim Chiu.
According to Gerald, whatever they had is in the past and that they've cultivated a new bond. They last worked together in the hit morning show "Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin."
"Siyempre wala ako dito ngayon if not for her. [So] to have that kind of dynamic pa rin, it's nice," he explained.
Third: any and all things concerning his relationship with girlfriend, Movie Queen Bea Alonzo. Many people seemed to have raised their eyebrows when he did not accompany her to her most recent trip to the United States.
Gerald reasoned, "[I didn't go with her because it was for] trabaho, shooting."
As for publicizing their cute little couple moments on Instagram as every other couple seems to do, Gerald had this to say, "We have so many moments together and hindi ko naman kailangang i-share lahat 'yun."
