Coco Martin Denies Secret Relationship With Julia MontesAward-winning actor Coco Martin denies he has a secret relationship with her "Ikaw Lamang" co-star Julia Montes.
The two were also together in "Walang Hanggan" and the movie "A Moment In Time." Coco said the public may just be assuming that they look good together but the truth is, he's like a big brother to Julia.
The actor said Julia's age is just half of his. Maybe the people can see how he is guiding Julia. He also said the public don't even see them when they're off-camera.
"Actually, yun nga ang nangyayari, nagiging masyado akong kuya pag magkasama po kaming dalawa."
He's proud though that the two of them have chemistry. Coco said they don't only get to spend time when they're taping, they are also sometimes together in out-of-town and out-of-the-country shows.
Coco maintains he's just like a big brother to Julia. He's even close to Julia's grandmother. He knew the young actress even before they did "Walang Hanggan."
But he is not closing his doors when it comes to falling for Julia. Since their lives are very similar, Coco usually advises Julia about her decisions.
Both of them stand as the padre de familia in their families. They also grew up with their grandmothers. "Para siya yung babaeng version ko."
Before, Coco said he'll probably pursue Julia when she's 18 years old already. When they're both steady and ready, maybe it's time to talk about that, the actor said.
"Ngayon, sabi ko nga, yung relationship namin ni Julia, parang mas tumitindi yung pagiging magkaibigan namin. Ang nakakatakot nga, baka mapunta [lang] sa pagiging magkaibigan."
In fact, they're just like brothers and sisters, especially since he has a good relationship with Julia's family. Coco knows her family can see how he's taking care of Julia.
He thinks Julia is girlfriend material. However, she's still too young. He doesn't want to say that he doesn't think of Julia as someone he can potentially fall in love with. "Hindi naman, kasi mahirap namang magsalita nang tapos. Baka mamaya, later on, alam mo yun?"
What are the things he likes about Julia? Her principles and her views about life, her love for family and her dedication to her work are some of the things Coco notices about her.
For Coco, the physical attributes are just good when the relationship is just starting. However, the most important thing is the attitude of that person.
People were questioning why Julia seemed to be in a supporting role on Coco's and Kim's teamup for "Ikaw Lamang." Coco was quick to defend his friend. He said that it's important that the public watch the teleserye first before they make their judgment.
"Pero magugulat na lang kayo kasi maganda ang role ni Julia rito. Ako naman, every project ko naman, hindi ako nag-stay sa isang leading lady ko."
It doesn't matter to Coco that his leading ladies change every teleserye. As an actor, Coco looks at the plot and the storyline of the project. Although he wants to be partnered with the same actress, he knows that there are stories more fit for other actresses.
He's excited to work with Kim, but he's still adjusting even though they have already worked together in "Tayong Dalawa" and "Kung Tayo's Magkakalayo."
"Pero ngayon, dahan-dahan nagiging kumportable na po kami sa isa’t isa, lalung-lalo na po sa mga eksena namin."
