MANILA, Philippines - Actor Dennis Trillo said he has already moved on from his breakup with actress Jennylyn Mercado.

He said he is unaffected by his ex-girlfriend's rumored romance with actor and television host Luis Manzano.

"I've completely moved on, matagal na. Dahil kapag hindi ako naka-move on, maraming nagdatingan na trabahong ganito mahihirapan akong gawin 'yung mga responsibilities na 'yon," Trillo told "Showbiz News Ngayon" on Friday.

For the time being, Trillo said he personally chose to stay single to enjoy his life to its fullest.

He explained, "Pinipili ko na lang na ganito kasi feeling ko mas balanse ako ngayon. Ngayon na wala akong karelasyon, parang mas marami akong time para ibuhos 'yon sa mga mas kailangan, sa pamilya ko, sa trabaho sa pag-aaral para mas i-improve pa 'yung craft [ko]."

"Choice ko 'yon tsaka mas masaya ako ngayon eh. Mas masaya talaga ako ngayon, hindi ko alam kung bakit, pero feeling ko mas malaya ako at mas nagagawa ko 'yung mga gusto kong gawin," he added.

Trillo and Mercado broke up earlier this year.

Despite the end of their 1-year relationship, Trillo said that he has no regrets.

"Walang regrets kasi marami akong natutunan," he explained.

He added, "Minsan talaga merong mga pagkakataong hindi talaga uubra 'yung mga relasyon. Ganon talaga ang buhay eh. Siguro, trial and error hanggang makilala mo talaga 'yung tamang para sa'yo."

Meanwhile, Trillo confessed that he used to have a problem when it comes to his temper.

"Dati, I must admit talaga na meron akong problema sa temper. Pero sa pag-progress ko bilang isang tao, natutunan ko na kapag masyado kang maraming hate at baggage sa buhay mo hindi mo mae-enjoy yung buhay."
