Young actress Jessy Mendiola

MANILA, Philippines -- Finally, actor JM de Guzman has publicly admitted his love for young actress Jessy Mendiola.

In an interview with "KrisTV" on Thursday, de Guzman confessed his real feelings for Mendiola for the first time.

"Siguro mayroong mga pagkakaintindihan na alam mo 'yon, mahal mo siya, mahal ka niya," de Guzman said.

But when asked if Mendiola also loves him, de Guzman simply said: "Yun ang di ko masyadong masasagot."

What is important, he said, is the fact that he knows he is in love with Mendiola.

"Wala naman akong hinihiling kapalit. If ever na ayaw ng Diyos na siya ang babae o hindi talaga, matatanggap ko pa din. Basta masasabi ko lang ay napakabuti niyang tao, napakaganda niya sa loob at sa labas. Hindi ko alam kung paano ako tinamaan," he added.

To prove his love for Mendiola, the actor even sang Jason Mraz's "I Won't Give Up" for Mendiola.

In an interview on "Bandila" on Wednesday night, Mendiola stressed that she and de Guzman are not yet a couple.
