Julia Montes, Enchong Dee Patch Things UpThings were not great between Echong Dee and Julia Montes recently but that is behind them now, the young actors revealed.
The two actors, rumored, for a time, to be a couple, readily admitted this week in a press event that there was a time when they both quarreled with each other.
However, the two of them have apparently patched things up thanks in part to their latest collaboration for the ABS-CBN drama Muling Buksan and Puso.
According to ABS-CBN News, Dee and Montes “appeared at ease as they addressed questions about the ABS-CBN drama” during the event.
Furthermore, when asked if he accepts the rumored closeness between Montes and Enrique Gil, their co-star in the drama which airs October 4, Dee said, “Oo naman, sabi ko nga, I think that's the reason also why I accepted the project, kasi alam ko ito 'yung pagkakataon namin para mas maging magkaibigan kami.” [Absolutely. I think that’s also the reason why I accepted the project – because I knew that this is the chance for us to be friends again.]
Montes also had this to say about Dee’s comment, “Totoo naman kasi talaga. Thankful kami sa show na 'to dahil dito kami nagkaayos at naging mas open.” [It is true. We are thankful for this show because this was where we patched things up and became more open.]
Being a bit cryptic, Montes said during the interview that maybe she and Dee rushed into things in the past and did not really appreciate what they had. She also said that they are now happy with what they have.
“Siguro kasi masyadong na-rush 'yung mga bagay-bagay. Siguro ngayon mas naa-appreciate namin kung ano ang meron kami kaya ganito kami ngayon, at masaya kami kung anong meron kami,” she said.
Nonetheless, Dee seems to confirm that they are now only friends though their relationship was not really made public at the time they were rumored to be a couple. The two made two films together in 2012 and were rumored to be involved romantically. However, rumors that the two have parted ways surface on October of that year.
“Sabi ko nga, katulad ng dati, bibihira 'yung ganitong klaseng reconciliation. So might as well take care of that friendship na naibalik. So doon nalang kami,” Dee said. [I said, just like before, reconciliations like this are hard to come by. So might as well take care of that friendship which has been restored. We will only be on that level.]
The two seems to be closer to each other now and seem to appreciate things more all thanks to the new show.
According to Dee, he learned from Montes that one does not have to be old in age to be mature and aware of what is happening in their life. Montes is the breadwinner of their family, especially her mother and grandmother.
“She did it at a very young age,” the responsibility she took on, Dee said.
As for Dee, Montes said, “Mature kasi si Enchong, pero sa time na parang kailangan magpaka-teenager o 'yung tipong enjoy, makikita mo 'yung side niya na siya Enchong Dee na totoo. At saka sa pag-arte niya, napapanood ko siya before pa. At ngayon, nakita ko 'yung ibang Enchong Dee. Talagang masasabing versatile actor talaga siya.” [Enchong is mature but when you need to be a teenager, the times you need to enjoy, you will see another side of Enchong Dee that is also genuine. Regarding his acting, I was able to see him before. Now, you will see a different Enchong Dee. I can honestly say he is a versatile actor.]
