MANILA -- "Malinis ang konsensya ko."
This was Angel Locsin's assertion when asked to address a supposed write-up on a "photo scandal," which allegedly shows her in a red dress with one breast exposed.
"Ah, matagal na 'yun," the 28-year-old actress said at the sidelines of the filming of the ABS-CBN sitcom "Toda Max" early this week. "Ilang beses na rin naman sa akin pinost 'yun ng mga bashers sa Internet. Hindi ko naman alam kung ano gagawin ko, kung ano eh..."
Asked to clarify if there is any truth to the allegation and that she may have simply forgotten the supposed photo was taken, Locsin stressed, "Sigurado ako na hindi talaga 'yon [totoo]."
Shrugging, the "Lobo" star continued, "Pero 'yung sa mga gano'ng klaseng bagay na may mga lumalabas, wala naman akong magagawa eh, 'diba. Pikit nalang ako."
Locsin was also asked to comment on celebrities who have figured in "sex scandals," or private videos that have gone viral online. Recently, TV host Wally Bayola and Parokya ni Edgar frontman Chito Miranda were embroiled in similar controversies.
"May barkada ako, meron," said Locsin, who is known to be a close friend of Miranda. "Pero hindi naman nagbago 'yung pagtingin ko sa kanya. Kasi kilala ko siya eh."
Asked for her message to "bashers" who claim there is truth to her alleged "photo scandal," Locsin only said, "Hi!"
"Kasi wala naman akong isyu sa kanila, 'diba. Hindi ko naman sila kilala nang personal, so wala, 'Hello' lang," she said.
