Zanjoe Marudo Denies Issue With Deniece CornejoZanjoe Marudo clarified that he never made a move on model-stylist Deniece Cornejo. He said he hasn't met the person who filed a rape complaint against his friend, Vhong Navarro.
In her sworn affidavit, Deniece said Zanjoe was the one who approached her first the day she first met Vhong. They were in a shoe store and the "It's Showtime" host kept on looking at her and following her.
While she was looking for shoes for her brothers, Zanjoe apparently approached her and asked her if the shoes she's choosing is for her boyfriend. Deniece did not say how she answered Zanjoe's questions.
But during the press conference for "Annaliza," Zanjoe denied knowing or meeting Deniece. He is aware that there was an issue about him with regards to Deniece, but he just chose to ignore it.
Bea Alonzo, his girlfriend, asked him about it. He told her it's nothing and that it's not true. They didn't talk about it again. "Wala akong kinalaman doon. Tapos wala na, hindi na namin napag-usapan."
Meanwhile, Zanjoe denied that his being a breadwinner of his family was the reason why he couldn't marry Bea yet. The actor said his siblings have jobs, but he helps his family too.
"Iba rin syempre kapag ikaw ang bubuhay sa sarili mong pamilya. Tumutulong-tulong lang naman."
Zanjoe already brought a lot, but he needs to save for the house. Bea, on the other hand, already bought a house and lot in White Plains. Is it not okay for them to live there when they get married?
The actor said it's better if he can provide for his future family. If he will get married, they must find a house that is exclusively for their family.
After his series, "Annaliza," which run for 10 months, Zanjoe will be preparing for his new movie with Pokwang under Skylight Films.
The movie is a romance-comedy. There will be a love scene between Zanjoe and Pokwang. The management set up comedy films for him. He only accepts the roles offered to him if he is confident he can do his best.
There are some things that he cannot do, Zanjoe added. For example, he cannot do sexy films now because he lost a lot of weight. He needs to go to the gym again.
Even if he's doing a comedy film, the actor said he still needs to be good-looking on screen.
He lost weight because he did not exercise when he's doing "Annaliza" since his role there is the father to Andrea Brillantes' titular role.
