|Celebrity couple Bea Alonzo and Zanjoe Marudo
MANILA – Actor Zanjoe Marudo admitted he was not affected even after his girlfriend, actress Bea Alonzo, bared details about her past relationship with actor Gerald Anderson.
In an exclusive interview with Yes! Magazine for its July 2013 issue, Alonzo for the first time talked about her short-lived romance with Anderson, describing it as a "roller-coaster ride."
Alonzo said she experienced extreme emotions as she and Anderson faced public criticism and the disapproval of someone closer to home.
Speaking to “The Buzz,” Marudo said he understood that Alonzo had to share details about her past since it was among the questions asked during the magazine interview.
“Tinanong siya so kailangan sabihin niya talaga lahat iyon. Hindi naman [ako affected],” he said.
Marudo, who has been in a steady relationship with Alonzo for two years now, said he did not feel insecure upon learning about his girlfriend’s past romance.
“Tapos na iyon eh. Ang pag-uusapan natin dapat yung present na ‘di ba?” he said.
Marudo and Alonzo became a couple in April 2011. While they have been vocal about their love for each other, both decided to focus on their respective careers first before deciding to settle down.
In one of his previous interviews, Marudo revealed that he is already saving up for an engagement ring for Alonzo.
"Pinagpaplanuhan muna siyempre ang proposal bago ang kasal. Wala pa namang [plano], siguro kapag sigurado na akong 'oo' ang sagot," he said.
"Naghihintay lang ako na makaipon [ng] pambili ng singsing. Siyempre, bibili ka ng maganda kasi minsan lang mangyari sa buhay 'yun," he added.
Alonzo, on the other hand, had said that she sees herself tying the knot with Marudo in five years.
