MANILA, Philippines -- For actor Robin Padilla, the "past is past" as far as him and actor Richard Gomez are concerned.

"OK na po kami ni Richard kasi tatakbo siyang mayor sa palagay ko ay kailangan namin ang isa't isa. Sa panahon na ito ay kalimutan na namin ang nakalipas," Padilla told reporters during the press conference for the first anniversary of the sitcom "Toda Max."

The two actors figured in several fights in the past, including one during a basketball game during the Star Olympics, and even one in Malacanang supposedly over Kris Aquino.

Asked if he would be open to campaign for Gomez for next year's elections, Padilla replied: "Noong tumakbo po siyang senador ako ay nangampanya para sa kanya. Lalo na ngayon kung kakailanganin niya ang aking serbisyo ay tutulungan ko si Richard."

Gomez ran for senator in 2007 but lost.

Gomez, who was part of the hit ABS-CBN show "Walang Hanggan," will run for mayor in Ormoc, Leyte.
