Jake Cuenca is at his happiest with Kylie Verzosa right now. And by happiest we mean, if we asked him to rate his relationship with Kylie from one out of ten, he'd rate it at 15.
Following his recent confirmation that they have been dating for seven months already, the "Los Bastardos" actor finally opened up about how his relationship with the former beauty queen started in an interview on “Magandang Buhay” this morning, June 18.
"Nagsama rin kasi kami sa 'Ang Panday'. So doon pa lang, parang crush ko na siya," he admitted. "Tapos nataon na parang pinag-partner kami sa 'Los Bastardos' so, sumakto rin."
According to Jake, he was already putting “the moves” on Kylie during their "Panday" days but during that time, she found him “gross.”
"'Yung totoo niyan, noong 'Panday' diring-diri [siya] sa akin. [Kasi] mahaba pa buhok ko. Siyempre, ako pa si Lizardo noong panahon na 'yun. Iba pa itsura ko noon," he jested.
"Medyo nagpapapogi na [ako noon pero] 'di umuubra."
But Jake, armed with his blinding smile, rock hard abs, and obscure film references, managed to turn it all around. Now that they're together, he has nothing but love and praise for his girlfriend.
"Sobrang bait [niya]. Beauty queen siya, 'di ba? Miss International. Pero 'yung soul niya, 'yung spirit niya, 'yung personalidad niya sobrang mas beautiful pa," he said.
He added, "Kung meron man siyang impluwensiya sa'kin, 'yun 'yung ini-inspire niya 'ko para pagbutihan pa lalo, para mas maging mabuti pang tao."
So does it mean that Kylie is "The One"?
"Kung ako ang tatanungin, oo," he admitted. "Ngayon, ready na talaga 'ko. Handa akong alagaan siya."
Jake most recently starred in the Mikhail Red film "Eerie" alongside Charo Santos and Bea Alonzo.
