Mylene Dizon Hopes For The Best In Relationship With Jason WebbMylene Dizon is hoping that her relationship with former basketball player and now sports analyst Jason Webb is for keeps. She recently admitted to their 10-month relationship.
They have a "very good" relationship, Mylene said, who recently attended the Cinemalaya event with Jason and her son.
Mylene said being an actress is a non-issue when it comes to being in a relationship. She's already 40 years old, so she's neither young nor a teenybopper who should protect her "image."
"A relationship is a relationship, whether artista ako… hindi ‘yon issue or something na kailangang itago."
Jason is also very used to the limelight. His father is veteran actor Freddie Webb and his sister is newscaster, Pinky Webb.
Although they are in a good place now, Mylene said they haven't talked about settling down. Mylene already has two sons with former partner, Paolo Paraiso, but they were never married.
Meanwhile, Mylene took the starring role in the Cinemalaya film, "Mariquina," which was directed by Milo Sogueco. Mylene said she feels very lucky to be able to bag the role.
She wanted to do another project with Cinemalaya, so she feels lucky that she found a script that she likes. When she read the script for the first time and the role of Imelda was offered to her, Mylene already fell in love with the story.
She immediately congratulated Jerrold Tarog for writing the script.
The role was first offered to Judy Ann Santos, but she backed out at the last minute, so it was offered to Mylene.
She is not rooting to bag the Best Actress award for this role, but she wants everybody to enjoy the Cinemalaya this year. She already got an award before, and it was nothing compared to being part of a good project.
Mylene won as Best Actress for Cinemalaya in 2008 for her role in "100." "An award is just there, but the knowledge, the feeling that you were chosen and then you were part of something great is far, far more worthwhile… or something to look forward to."
She is satisfied enough to know that the producers, scriptwriter and director of a film considered her good enough for a role in a good film, Mylene said.
