Carla Abellana Denies Relationship With Tom RodriguezCarla Abellana maintained that nothing romantic is going on between her and Tom Rodriguez, her co-star in GMA-7's newest teleserye "My Destiny."
Carla said she and Tom already expected that they will be rumored together again now that they will be starring in the new series. They know they cannot prevent other people from thinking what they want to think about them.
"Okay lang yun, they are entitled to their own wishes. Pero sabi niya na parang, ‘Just because the fans want us to end up together doesn’t mean pipilitin natin just to please them.’"
Carla and Tom first worked together in the phenomenal hit "My Husband's Lover" in 2013 and again in the movie "So It's You" this year.
What changed in their relationship? "Mas makulit ngayon! Mas magaan ngayon." But the actress said they never went out together, contrary to the rumors that they were seen in several occasions.
She would also say that they already know each other when it comes to acting. When Tom is having a hard time in one of their scenes, Carla already knows what to do to help him.
Tom is the same with her when it comes to helping her in their scenes together. Also, they know each other when it comes to their techniques in acting.
Carla denied that they have a secret relationship, mainly because they don't even have the time for it. They are simply enjoying the company of each other.
She's not even thinking about the possibility that Tom may be her next boyfriend. She just hopes that God will let her meet the person destined for her.
"Pero iyon yung isa sa mga natutunan ko, na hindi mo puwedeng pilitin. Hayaan mo lang na dumating na lang."
Carla also denied that she and Tom broke up with their respective partners (Carla from Geoff Eigenmann and Tom from singer Kaye Rivera) because they wanted to be together.
"I think, ang nangyari lang kasi is people put two and two together. They assumed na just because of the timing, na kung tutuusin, mas nauna akong nag-end sa relationship ko, months before yung sa kanya nangyari."
The people don't know what truly happened, Carla said, adding that both she and Tom went through so much in their previous relationships.
Carla said she never asked Tom about the reason for his breakup with Kaye. It's up to them already because she's not the kind of person who interferes into another person's relationship. Tom also never asked her about Geoff.
"Wala siyang pinipilit na ganun, pareho kaming distansiya. Pakiramdaman, ganun."
The best person to ask about Tom's breakup with Kaye is the actor himself. It's a sensitive matter, Carla said, so she doesn't want to ask questions about it. If she knows that Tom is going through something, she prefers not to interfere anymore.
