MANILA – Comebacking actor JM De Guzman might grab the opportunity to catch up with ex-girlfriend Jessy Mendiola at this weekend's Star Magic ball.
While he and Mendiola have not talked for a while now, De Guzman said he will definitely not avoid a chance meeting with his former love.
“Siguro po [magka-catch up kami] kasi nasa isang lugar lang naman,” he said.
De Guzman said he is flattered that Mendiola only has good words for him every time she talks about him in her interviews.
“Nakaka-touch naman kung ganun yung mga nasasabi niya sa akin. Ganun din naman siya, [magaling siyang aktres],” he said.
With the annual ball fast approaching, did her ever think of asking Mendiola to be his date?
“Wala po [akong date] eh,” he said. “We are both coming alone.”
Aside from possibly catching up with the actress, De Guzman said he is also looking forward to seeing many of his showbiz friends again.
“Nilu-look forward ko yung makipag-meet up ulit sa friends ko sa showbiz, makipag-bonding. Siyempre 'yung mismong buong event kasi masaya,” said De Guzman, who missed last year's ball.
Asked how he is preparing for the celebrity event, he said: “Actually nung sinusukatan pa lang po kami, sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Sir, kapag fitting, magbabawas kayo ng sukat kasi magpapapayat ako.’ Araw-araw ako nagwo-work, medyo five pounds na 'yung na-lose ko. Excited po ako.”
The annual Star Magic ball, which is attended by the brightest Kapamilya stars, is set to happen this Saturday.
