MANILA, Philippines -- Actor John Lloyd revealed that he once had a relationship with an older woman who was already committed to someone else.
In the Octotber 2012 issue of The Buzz Magazine, Cruz said the affair happened when he was in his early 20s.
He also refused to identify the woman.
"Parang pumayag ako na, sige... kahit No. 2, okey na ako, magse-settle ako. I was so much younger kaysa roon sa girl. Siguro I was in my early 20s noong nangyari 'yun. So, parang hindi ko rin alam. Parang the thinking was too strong, hindi ko ma-contain," he told the magazine.
"And wala... siya 'yung nag-take over. And wala, pumayag na ako, sige. Ang sabi ko, nabigkas ko 'yung mga salitang, 'Okey lang kung kailan ka lang may time, okey na ako roon," the actor recalled.
Cruz admitted that it was not easy to have a relationship with a woman who is in such a situation.
"Hindi naman immoral pero parang dini-dare ka niya to be someone you're not kasi 'yun nga, parang masyadong malakas 'yung nararamdaman mo roon sa person. It was quite a struggle definitely. Kasi alam mo na at the onset... mali, e. Mali talaga. Lagi ko namang sinasabing you cannot argue with love. But I found out later on, I was only infatuated," he said.
He eventually ended the relationship when he realized that the woman deserved better.
"She did not deserve to be in that kind of situation," Cruz said.
