MANILA - It was an incredibly awkward moment for actress Angel Locsin when reporters on Wednesday prodded her to comment on the rumored romance between former boyfriend Luis Manzano and actress Jessy Mendiola.

"Kung sila hindi nagsasalita o hindi umaamin, ako pa ba magko-comment?" said Locsin, who admitted to feeling uncomfortable. "I always want him [Manzano] to be happy. Kung happy siya, magiging happy na lang ako para sa kanya. "

Rumors about Manzano and Mendiola's relationship first surfaced when Philippine Star entertainment editor and columnist Ricky Lo, citing an unnamed source, said that the two "are already an item." Manzano has since denied the report, claiming that it is "100 percent untrue." 

Locsin, in the same interview, also said that she has yet to fully move on from his failed relationship with Manzano.

"I'm getting there. Hindi ako magpapaka-plastik, lahat naman kasi tayong mga babae ay may prosesong ginagawa," she said.

Locsin added: "Parang last year at this year ay sobrang difficult para sa akin. Masaya lang at kaya ko pang ngumiti."

Both Locsin and Manzano have yet to open up about the reason behind their split.
