Jessy Mendiola Maintains Friendship With JM De GuzmanJessy Mendiola clarified that she and ex-boyfriend JM De Guzman are just friends. They were last seen during JM's birthday bash.
Jessy denied getting back together with JM, who just came out from rehab.
Asked about her rumored beau, a Colombian college student who she met while vacationing in Boracay, Jessy said they are not together yet and they simply have a mutual understanding.
They last talked about two days ago, Jessy said, adding that he is still "kind of" courting her. He also told her he'll be back in the Philippines.
Meanwhile, Jessy admitted she used to have a huge crush on John Lloyd Cruz, who she is working with in "The Trial." Working with Lloydie is part of her bucket list as an actress.
Jessy remembered always watching "Maging Sino Ka Man" and "One More Chance." She was already in showbiz that time, so she wished to have the possibility of working with her.
The actress feels lucky that she was able to work with him this early in her career. She does not feel awkward at all around Lloydie, although she feels nervous that she always has to be at her best when working with him.
There was a rumor that Direk Chito Rono shouted at her during shooting for the film. Jessy denied this, saying Direk Chito just has a loud voice because he's a Waray.
In fact, Direk Chito doesn't need to motivate them because they let them do what they want. He only explains what he wants to see in a scene. Once they nail it, he'll be the first one to praise them.
