Dingdong Dantes, Bea Alonzo Preempt Dating RumorsActors Dingdong Dantes and Bea Alonzo are expecting rumors that the two of them are dating despite each having their own long-running relationships with other actors.
This is because Dantes and Alonzo star in the soon-to-be-released Star Cinema movie “She’s the One”.
Dantes is currently the boyfriend of Kapuso actress Marian Rivera and Alonzo is the long-time girlfriend of Kapamilya actor Zanjoe Marudo.
According to the actor and actress, they expect that rumors about the two of them being romantically-linked may soon come out.
“Feeling ko hindi na siya uso. People are smart enough to know kung ano ang totoo and hindi totoo. I trust the people,” Alonzo said, a report from ABS-CBN News says. [I don’t think that (rumors of romantic involvement between costars) has seized to be in. People are smart enough to know the truth and what is not the truth. I trust the people.]
For his part, ABS-CBN News says that Dantes also echoed Alonzo’s sentiment in the interview conducted last Sunday after the pictorial for their movie.
“This is how I see it -- what we have sa personal lives namin, it actually helps us become more professional kasi sa mga kanya-kanya naming buhay, nakakakuha kami ng mga joy and learnings na naa-apply namin sa mga kanya kanya naming buhay and sa work,” Dantes said. [This is how I see it – what we have in our personal lives actually help us become more professional since in our separate lives, we experience joy and learning that we can apply in our personal lives and our work.]
Dantes said that he is just grateful to be able to work with Alonzo. He said that he is “amazed” at the opportunity to work with the Kapamilya actress.
“Ako I also get to see 'yung mga ginawa niyang movies, like kanina sa Cinema One pinalabas yung ‘The Mistress.’ Sabi ko parang napapaanood ko lang siya sa TV or sa big screen, ngayon katrabaho ko na. It’s a big thing, especially because we don’t get to work with each other always kasi magkaiba kami ng network,” Dantes noted. [I get to see the movies she (Alonzo) has done like “The Mistress” which I saw in a screening in Cinema One just a while ago. I said to myself that I only get to see her on TV or on the big screen and now I am working with her. It’s a big thing, especially because we don’t get to work with each other always since we are from different networks.]
Dantes went on to say that in all honesty, he thinks and believes his costar is a “nice person” who is, in real life, exactly the person people see on screen. “She’s transparent enough” so it’s easy to get to know that she’s really a nice person, Dantes said.
The actor’s compliments did not stop there. He said that Alonzo “makes everything seem so light” because she is “very bubbly” in an situations. He said he learned to not take everything too seriously because of the actress.
“Relax lang din pero kapag roll na, biglang automatic, ang galing eh. Ibang klase,” he said of Alonzo. [She’s just relaxed but when the tape gets rolling, it’s automatic (for her), she’s great at what she does. She’s on a different level.]
Meanwhile, Alonzo also had praises for Dantes who recently signed another five-year exclusive contract with GMA, the network which has dubbed him the “Kapuso Primetime King”.
“Na-humble ako kasi he’s been here for the longest time and matagal na siyang nasa posisyon niya pero hindi pa rin malaki ang ulo niya. Hindi siya nale-late and hindi siya nagde-demand. Sana maging ganun din ako. Gusto ko maging kagaya niya,” Alonzo said. [I was humbled because he has been here for the longest time and it has also been a long time that he has had his status (as a prime star) but it has not gotten to his head. He doesn’t come late and he also has no demands. I hope I will be like him. I want to be like him.]
Alonzo went on to say that Dantes is “very smart” and “very sincere”. Furthermore, she said that Dantes is a “closet geek” and that it feels great to be with him because he knows how to befriend any person.
Alonzo also revealed that she has long been wishing to work with Dantes and now it has come true even if it was not planned and she did not reveal this to Star Cinema. When she was told of the possible project with Dantes, she said yes right away, she revealed.
