Enrique Gil and Bangs Garcia.

MANILA – Bangs Garcia chose to keep mum when asked about her love life amid rumors linking her to actor Enrique Gil.

A picture of Garcia and Gil, who were apparently on vacation in Japan during the holidays, went viral online although it was Garcia herself who shared the December 27 photo of her with Gil and his family at Tokyo Disneyland.

"With Quen and his family," its caption read.

But in an interview with ABS-CBN News over the weekend, Garcia clarified that she is not currently in a relationship.

Asked if among her suitors is someone from showbiz, the actress just smiled and said: “Huwag muna. Basta I’m entertaining.”

Garcia said she wants to focus on her career and grow as an actress first. “Wala pang [qualified], merong almost pero hindi ko pa sure. I want to focus on my career kasi ngayon kasi ang ganda ng pasok ng 2014,” she said.

Meanwhile, Garcia said she feels honored to be part of the upcoming ABS-CBN fantasy series “Diyesebel.”

“Kontrabida ako ni Anne Curtis. First time ko mag pure kontrabida kasi nung last time, bida kontrabida ako. Puwede maging mabait minsan. This time talagang kontrabida,” she said.

Garcia said she cannot wait to play the role of a mermaid who is out to make the life of the title character miserable.

“Ready na ako. Nakaka-challenge mag kontrabida. Hindi siya simple. I really want to improve in my craft so I think this is a chance for me na mas mas excel ako sa acting,” she said.
