MANILA – Actor JC De Vera denied rumors that he is currently dating actress Jessy Mendiola.

In an interview with “Buzz ng Bayan” on Sunday, De Vera said he only had dinner with Mendiola once and it was during a party for their road manager.

“Ano lang siya, despedida nung RM namin sa Star Magic. Wala [nang sumunod pa],” he said.

De Vera said he is busy with his career that he barely has time for anything else, not even for matters of the heart.

“Lonely heart ako ngayon eh dahil sa schedule. May Monday to Sunday ako na work. Ayaw ko naman na yung babae pinaghihintay tapos hindi binibigyan ng time,” he said.

De Vera is a co-star in the primetime series “The Legal Wife.” He also has an afternoon soap with Meg Imperial and Ellen Adarna titled “Moon of Desire.”

In a previous interview with ABS-CBN News, the 28-year-old actor said that he cannot commit to a relationship due to his hectic work schedule.

"Maraming trabaho talaga. Hindi ako fit talaga mapunta sa situation na 'yun (relationship) dahil everyday 'yung taping eh, mahirap," he said.

But the actor said he does not mind being busy with work despite not having a love life.

“Wala ding [text, text]. Puro schedule. Pero hindi ako nagrereklamo na walang love life. Masaya naman ako sa trabaho,” he said.

De Vera said he is thankful for the opportunities given to him and sees his current and upcoming roles in “Moon of Desire” as a chance to learn and improve his acting skills.
