MANILA, Philippines – Former “Aryana” star Ella Cruz dismissed rumors that she has intentions to get in the way of the popular love team of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla.
In an interview with entertainment website Push.com.ph, Cruz said she has been receiving negative feedback after she revealed that she is looking forward to have a project with Padilla if given the chance.

“Oo nga po eh, siyempre parang na-hurt po ako kasi hindi ko rin naman alam 'yung issue tungkol diyan na makakatambal ko nga si Daniel at wala po akong nababalitaan na project kami together, kahit movie with KathNiel po. So sana po kahit papaano ma-clear 'yung issue na hindi po talaga kami magkakatambalan ni Daniel. Kung sakali man, ang sinasabi ko lang, looking forward ako diyan,” she explained.
Aside from Padilla, Cruz said she is also excited to work with other talented Kapamilya stars for that matter.
“Ganon naman po talage eh. Sobrang lakas ng chemistry ng KathNiel, siguro nga hindi talaga [pwede]. Kumbaga ako, sige sa iba na lang ako, kay Francis (Magundayao) na lang ulit ako o kaya sa iba. Kasi sa tingin ko naman 'yung age ko hindi pa naman talaga fit for Daniel,” she said.
But if granted with a project with Padilla in the future, Cruz said she believes the ABS-CBN management knows what’s best for each of their talents.
Meanwhile, the 16-year-old actress said there is no truth to reports that this bit of news has affected her friendship with Bernardo.
“Wala naman kaming issue ni Kathryn, friends po kami. Kasi may mga gumagawa rin ng issue na may something kami ni Kathryn, na magkaaway kami. Wala pong ganon,” she said.
Currently, Cruz is busy promoting her latest movie “A Moment In Time,” which is headlined by Coco Martin and Julia Montes.
