MANILA – Television host and actress Toni Gonzaga is confident that distance will not affect her relationship with director Paul Soriano.
This comes after Gonzaga posted a picture of them together on the image-sharing site Instagram, where she expressed in the caption her sadness as Soriano was then bound for Israel.
In an interview with entertainment website Push.com.ph, Gonzaga said she understands that Soriano has to be away sometimes because of work.
She said work schedules never became an issue for them because they are both in the entertainment industry.
“Yun [trabaho] muna focus namin sa ngayon but we still keep in touch. It’s easier since high tech naman na ang mga phones ngayon, hindi mo na kailangan ng laptop para mag-video chat. Dati ang hilig namin sa Skype pero ngayon may Viber na at uso na rin ang Tangle. Pwede na mag-Facetime anytime,” she said.
Gonzaga said Soriano is currently in Israel to oversee the shoot of the 2013 Cinemalaya entry “Transit." She said her long-time boyfriend is also set to fly to the United States for a possible project.
“Ayaw ko sabihin [exactly kung ano] magagalit ‘yun sa akin. May maganda siyang possible opportunity na magagawa doon,” she said.
While Soriano is not in the country, Gonzaga said she will just keep herself busy with her current projects including an upcoming movie with Bea Alonzo, Angel Locsin and Shaina Magdayao.
Gonzaga said she is always looking forward to being with the three actresses because they are always goofing around the set.
“Kasi ang daldal ko, madami akong napapansin sa set. Bentang-benta naman ako kay Bea Alonzo. Kapag tumawa naman si Bea, tawa rin si Shaina. And, of course, tawa rin si Angel but more on concentrating talaga si Angel sa kanyang role. Talagang focus talaga ang lola mo, hindi mo siya ma-i-interrupt ‘pag nagmo-motivate na siya. Ang saya ‘pag off cam,” she said.
Gonzaga said she feels fortunate to be given the chance to work with this generation’s top actresses.
