Actor Coco Martin and actress Julia Montes during the photo shoot for their upcoming movie "A Moment Like This."

MANILA, Philippines – Actress Julia Montes revealed that actor Coco Martin will be her escort on her 18th birthday in March.

Speaking on “The Buzz” on Sunday, Montes said: "Baka mamaya maudlot. Yes po [si Coco ang escort ko]."

Montes said she is glad to have Martin by her side during her debut because the actor is really a caring person on and off camera.

“Sa lahat ng aspect, mapa-simpleng bagay, talagang maalaga siya, hindi lang sa co-worker niya. Kung mapapansin niyo siya sa set pati crew inaalagaan niya, ganun siya kabuting tao talaga, good guy,” he said.

While she described Martin as a perfect gentleman, Montes shrugged off rumors that there is something romantic going on between them.

Montes said she and Martin have just developed a close relationship because they have been working together since the top-rating series “Walang Hanggan.”

In a separate interview, Martin explained that he does not want to get into something which he feels he has no chance of success.

“Bago kasi ako pumasok sa isang bagay, sinisigurado ko muna na may laban. Siyempre sabi ko nga ayaw ko namang mapapahiya ang sarili ko. Pinapakiramdaman ko pa,” he said.

Meanwhile, Montes took time to address rumors saying she sometimes gets jealous of actress Erich Gonzales, who also happened to be Martin’s leading lady in the series “Juan dela Cruz.”

“Okay lang naman. Wala naman akong karapatan, so hindi ako pwedeng mag-react,” she said.

Montes and Martin are currently promoting their upcoming movie together. Titled “A Moment In Time,” their movie is slated to hit cinemas nationwide on February 13.
