Jake Vargas Insists He's Just Friends With Ella CruzAlthough he admitted to going out with her in a group, Kapuso actor Jake Vargas said he and Kapamilya actress Ella Cruz are just friends for now.
He said they usually hang out with the same group of people, but others who may see them naturally assume they are together as boyfriend-girlfriend because they are the only actors in their little group.
The truth is, he and Ella are just friends and he enjoys her company because she was nice.
Jake, who recently broke it off with Kapuso actress Bea Binene, admitted to having a crush on Ella. He described her as beautiful and kind. "Kahit naman siguro sinong lalaki magkaka-crush sa kanya."
He refused to answer though when asked if the feeling is mutual. Some reports said Ella is also crushing on Jake. The actor added it is better if Ella will be the one to answer that question because he doesn't want to assume anything.
Still, Jake maintains he is not ready to enter into a serious relationship after the year he spent with Bea. For now, he is okay with having crushes. And although he has already moved on from the breakup, he wants to stay away from serious commitments for now.
Jake and Bea reportedly broke up because Jake has been hanging around with his "bad influence" friends--something Bea does not take kindly to.
The young actor, however, clarified not being ready doesn't mean he will never fall in love again.
In the future, Jake admitted he wants Ella to be his girlfriend. However, that's still up to the actress if she will come to like him too as more than friends. Jake shared he and Ella enjoy so many similar things together, and that's why he thinks they will make a good pair.
For now though, he maintained it is better for them to just be friends. He is careful with Ella because the issues and rumors about them may cause him her friendship.
Meanwhile, Jake said he's okay if Bea will entertain suitors or enter into a new relationship. He knows the young actress has already moved on from their breakup. He added both of them will be happy for each other when they found someone to be with again.
"As long as masaya siya, masaya na rin ako."
The actor said he and Bea are still friends up to now. They will even work on a new show on GMA-7, according to his talent manager, German Moreno.
For now, Jake is busy with three Kapuso shows--"Sunday All Stars," "Walang Tulugan with the Master Showman" and "Pepito Manaloto."
"Alam ko naman na hindi ako pababayaan ng GMA at magkakaroon din ako ng bagong teleserye, 'yan ang aabangan ng mga fans ko."
