|Actress Katrina Halili and actor Hayden Kho
MANILA, Philippines – “Past is past.” This is what actress Katrina Halili said when asked for a reaction about the recent encounter of her partner, Kris Lawrence, and controversial actor Hayden Kho.
In an interview with entertainment website Pep.ph, Halili said she is proud of how Lawrence handled the situation when he bumped into Kho at an event last December.
"Parang masaya na kami, bakit pa kami magagalit doon (Kho), ‘di ba? Oo naman po [proud ako sa ginawa ni Kris] kasi ayaw ko din naman po ng gulo, kasi para saan pa? Kasi masaya naman kaming dalawa. Kasi walang kailangan pang ano, para guluhin pa namin 'yung buhay namin," said Halili, one of the actresses in the sex video scandal involving Kho in 2009.
After the said encounter, Halili shared that she and Lawrence saw Kho again in a mall just recently.
Asked how she felt when she saw the controversial actor again, Halili said: “Wala... ang weird lang kasi kakakita lang nila ni Kris.”
Halili said they were then dining at a restaurant when Lawrence saw Kho, but the latter has already walked past them.
“Siguro, unang-una, 'yung masaya na ako sa buhay ko and kung anuman 'yung nangyari before, parte na ‘yon ng buhay ko. Hindi naman kailangang mag-stop doon. Dapat may matutunan tayo sa nangyari sa atin, 'yun lang, so positive lang," she said.
Halili said she is also happy that Kho is reportedly back with celebrity doctor Vicki Belo.
In his past interview with ABS-CBN News, Kho said he feels comforted that some of the people whom he had altercations in the past have already moved on.
Kho said if there is one thing common among him, Lawrence and Halili, it’s their choice to leave the negative things in the past and just move on.
