MANILA, Philippines - Young actress Kim Chiu has blasted speculations about her supposed attempt to commit suicide following her break-up with rumored boyfriend and on-screen partner Gerald Anderson.

In an interview with weekly entertainment show “The Buzz,” Chiu stressed that she would never harm herself. She also pointed out that it is a foolish thing to do.

"Alam mo kalokohan and katangahan para sa akin kung gawin ko 'yon…. Papatayin ko sarili ko, bakit? Parang sinong mag-aalaga sa mga kapatid ko? Sinong bubuhay sa kanila? And may pinagagawa akong bahay, dream [house] ko, sinong magtatapos noon?" Chiu, the breadwinner of her family, said.

Reports about Chiu's alleged attempt to commit suicide have spread like wildfire in the Internet almost 2 months ago. The reports came out amid Chiu and Anderson’s repeated assertions that they never became a couple.

In her “The Buzz” interview, the actress failed to directly address the break-up issue, but she said the actor is a good person.

"Ito sasabihin ko, lahat ng tao dumadaan sa proseso ng buhay. Nasa taas, nasa ibabaw, malungkot, masaya pero dahan dahan nagiging okay naman ang lahat. Katulad ko masaya naman ako ngayon,” she said.

She added: “And 'yong tungkol kay Ge (Anderson), ayokong isipin na masama siyang tao kasi hindi talaga. Lahat ng mga haters niya parang ako ang nasasaktan para sa kanya."

Anderson has been the subject of nasty comments after rumors about his supposed split with Chiu cropped up.

He is also being romantically linked to Bea Alonzo.

When asked to comment on Anderson-Alonzo’s purported budding romance, Chiu said: "Magandang lalaki si Gerald, aminin natin 'yon. Mabait pa, gentleman. Lahat naman magkaka-gusto sa kanya kaya hindi na imposibleng may ma-link pa sa kanya."

She has nothing against Alonzo, the young actress also maintained.

Chiu, Anderson and Alonzo are mainstays of musical variety show “ASAP XV,” but Chiu and Alonzo are not close friends.

"Hi, hello batian portion [lang kami ni Bea]. Parang ibang circle of friends nila sa ‘ASAP.’ Nagbabatian kami, okay naman po kami," she said.

Chiu also disclosed that she got deeply hurt recently, but she refused to divulge the reason or say if it is connected to the Anderson-Alonzo issue.

"Hindi naman ako robot [na] walang pakiramdam… Sa akin na lang ‘yon, sa sarili ko na lang kung anuman 'yon," the actress said.

Chiu and Anderson recently starred in hit television series "Kung Tayo'y Magkakalayo." They are now gearing up for their reunion movie, Star Cinema’s "Till My Heartaches End."
