Rayver Cruz Is Confident Of His Role In New TeleseryeRayver Cruz maintains he is ABS-CBN's first choice for his role in the new teleserye "Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin." He said that even though Cristine Reyes was his former girlfriend and Gerald Anderson is his bestfriend, they didn't influence his inclusion in the teleserye.
Cruz pointed out that he's already used to such rumors saying he only clinched the spot on the teleserye because of Anderson and Reyes. But just the same, he wants to clarify these rumors.
Asked about his friendship with Anderson, Enchong Dee and Xian Lim, Cruz said their travels together bonded them really well. Every year, they go on tour together. He has a lot of showbiz friends, but the four them are really tight.
Both Anderson and Cruz were once linked to Popstar Princess Sarah Geronimo. Cruz said they didn't talk about Geronimo, and they were friends even before the issues about the Popstar Princess.
Reyes, his ex-girlfriend, was also with him in the teleserye. They have no problems working together though. "Sobrang happy ako at comfortable na siya ang kasama ko, dahil nga kapag may mabibigat na eksena, comfortable ako."
In the past two years, they have worked together on various projects even though they have broken up already. Cruz maintained they remained friends even after calling it quits.
The public was quite surprised about how "amiable" his relationship with Reyes was in spite of the breakup. The actor said maybe because they didn't separate because of a third party. Their breakup was a mutual decision, he added.
"Nagkasundo naman kami at sinabi naman na nandito kami para sa isa’t isa. Hindi naman natatapos yung relasyon natin, ganoon pa rin naman tayo."
Right now, Cruz is still single and said he will not deny if he is courting somebody else. He was recently linked to a model, but he maintained he wasn't involved with anyone right now.
The actor also added that he's just waiting for the right time to fall in love again. He's happy though for Anderson who is in a relationship with Maja Salvador.
Funny thing is, every time Anderson has a girlfriend, Cruz doesn't have one. And when Cruz is in a relationship, it is Anderson who's single.
He was also asked about Lim and Anderson, who are together in their group. Anderson is the ex-boyfriend of Kim Chiu, Lim's current apple of the eye. This is no problem though, Cruz said.
"Wala tayong magagawa, e, lalo na dito sa industry, na yung dumaan na sa atin parang…. Pero no choice ka, e, kasi ang liit lang ng mundo natin. Kayo-kayo ang magkikita-kita, kayo-kayo ang magkaka-inlaban."
