Ruffa Gutierrez Is Friends With John Lloyd CruzRuffa Gutierrez is happy to say that she is friends with her ex-boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz. She finally had a closure with the Kapamilya actor about two years ago.
Ruffa was John Lloyd's girlfriend before his relationship with Shaina Magdayao. Many said John Lloyd's closeness with Ruffa has always been a problem with Shaina.
Now, John Lloyd is in a relationship with Angelica Panganiban.
Ruffa and John Lloyd are comfortable with each other that she even guested on "Home Sweetie Home," the sitcom of John Lloyd and Toni Gonzaga.
Ruffa shared that the viewers reacted positively to her guesting on the show. In fact, ABS-CBN asked her to be a recurring character there. She will tape in Boracay for an episode of the show.
"So for them to believe that John Lloyd and I can work together, that’s good."
But the actress clarified that hers and John Lloyd's relationship is purely for professional reasons. She respects his current relationship with Angelica. "And hindi naman ako ganung klaseng babae, I respect relationships. Ayoko naman gawin ‘yon sa iba, kasi ayoko ring gawin 'yon sa akin."
Ruffa said she's actually very jealous when it comes to her loved ones. And when she's jealous, her "Annabelle Rama" side comes out. Annabelle is Ruffa's mother.
Nobody will reject the chance of working with John Lloyd, Ruffa said. It's actually fun now to work with him because they are able to show the public that they can be "cute" together.
When they were together before, everything is just pure speculations. They weren't seen together as a team or as partners. Now that they have, the public had a positive response since the show got high ratings.
It's fun to work with John Lloyd because he takes care of his leading ladies well. But as for now, Ruffa cannot guest on the show because she has to do the cruise with his family for "It Takes Gutz To Be A Gutierrez."
But if she is available, there's no problem about guesting, she added.
Up to now, Ruffa and John Lloyd still have communication although she was quick to point out that it's not a regular thing.
Asked to define her relationship with the actor, here is what Ruffa said: "Magkaibigan kami. Seriously, masasabi ko, isa siya sa mga kaibigan ko ngayon and walang awkwardness at all. And it’s a joy working with him, kasi siyempre mahusay siyang artista."
When it comes to personal things, Ruffa said they just ask each other how they are, but that's all about it.
Meanwhile, Ruffa shared that age is just a number and she can feel beautiful even at any age. A woman can be beautiful even when she's in her 20s, 30s, 40s and even 50s.
The former beauty queen said the secret is simply how one carry herself. "At this point in my life, masasabi ko naman na there’s so many ways to feel beautiful, kaya siguro lumalabas ‘yon sa mga tao."
Ruffa said the people can see that she's happy and she takes care of herself. She feels blessed that she can still be paired with the likes of Coco Martin and Sarah Geronimo.
She is currently doing a movie under Star Cinema with Coco and Sarah.
