MANILA, Philippines – Actor Daniel Padilla denied he is only using his “Princess and I” leading lady Kathryn Bernardo to promote their ongoing television series.

In an interview with “The Buzz” on Sunday, Padilla said he is not the type of guy who lies about his feelings for a girl.

“Sa akin ayaw ko ng kumbaga makapag-promo lang. Si Kathryn gusto ko po talaga, kung tratuhin ko si Kathryn para sa akin parang prinsesa talaga,” he said.

Padilla, however, revealed that there is really nothing romantic going on between them yet.

“Hindi pa talaga (kami). Wala pa, hindi pa. Siguro ‘yun nga, special friends lang kami. Nagkakaintindihan lang kami sa mga bagay,” he said.

He said he also does not want to assume if they already have a mutual understanding.

“Hindi ko po alam. Ayaw ko po sumagot. Hindi ko alam baka sabihin [ng iba] kapag oo, assuming naman, kapag hindi [sabihin nila nagsisinungaling ako]. Siguro. Ayaw ko pong maging assuming,” he said.

Padilla shared Bernardo’s mom also talked to him to remind him that he and Bernardo are still young so they should not hurry.

“Sinabihan ako ni Tita na huwag daw po muna dahil bata pa at may mga career. Sabi niya 'wag magmamadali. [Sinabi ko], ‘Tita, walang problema, ako, okay naman po maghintay,’” he said.
