Edward Barber remains true to his beliefs and intentions.
At the press conference for his upcoming show "Hiwaga Ng Kambat" last April 30, Edward revealed that there have been people in showbiz who “encouraged” him to get in a relationship with his on-screen partner Maymay Entrata to further boost his career.
But the actor, being the true gentleman that he is, refused to do so.
"If there’s one thing I learned sa loob ng bahay ni Kuya, it’s to take things slow,” he said, “so discover lang as you go along. Don’t rush into things. Don’t dive in kasi you might not get out. So the best things in the world, the best things you should love, are things that you gain slowly.”
Edward said that he’s learned to shrug it off every time someone tells him there’s more money in “real life” love teams.
"'Yung totoo po, ayokong isipin. I don’t want to think about it too much kasi ang dami [nagsasabi], ‘You guys are a love team, get together na. Nakakakilig 'yun, doon galing ang pera,'" he added.
As for Maymay, she's just very grateful for Edward’s consistency during their courtship.
"Sobrang feeling thankful po ako na dumating siya sa buhay ko dahil siya po 'yung lalaki na consistent po talaga 'pag may gusto siya sa isang babae. Kapag sinabi niya na 'hihintayin kita', hihintayin [ka niya talaga]. [Kasi] 'di ba po may mga lalaki [na sasabihing] 'hihintayin kita' [pero] 'pag three months, wala na," she explained.
In spite all of this, the pair still puts their family and their dreams at the top of their priority list.
“Mas mabuti po talaga ‘pag kilalanin niyo muna ang isa’t-isa. Hindi pa po talaga time. Priority po namin ‘yung family namin, ‘yung pangarap namin, kung ano meron sa amin ngayon na blessings. Dahil ‘yung totoong maging official na, darating po ‘yun sa tamang panahon kapag stable na ang lahat,” Maymay revealed.
Edward and Maymay's last starred in the Vice Ganda led comedy film "Fantastica". Maymay is also set to star in the upcoming film "Hello, Love, Goodbye" to be helmed by Cathy Garcia-Molina.
