As with most love teams, fans just can't help but speculate about whether the onscreen sweetness is more than just acting. And fans of the Maymay Entrata-Edward Barber pairing are no different. 

Barber was asked about it when he appeared with Entrata on "Tonight with Boy Abunda" Friday. 

And while he didn't give a direct answer, Barber made it clear that "there's no one I've ever been closer to than Maymay."

"I know Maymay in a way most people don't. When I hear people saying, 'Oh, lumalaki iyong ulo niya.' I can't help but smile just a little bit because it's so untrue," Barber said. 

The term "jowa" was used, because the word appears to play a significant part in their upcoming movie, "Loving in Tandem" — or at least that's what the trailer indicates.

The trailer was released last week, and has since reached more than 2 million views on Facebook and YouTube combined. 

It is Entrata and Barber's first movie together. It also stars Kisses Delavin and Marco Gallo, and was directed by Giselle Andres. 

"Loving in Tandem" will be released this Wednesday.
